[PlanetCCRMA] Problems starting Jack with RME

I wonder if anybody here might care to lend me a hand in getting my RME Digi96PAD card running
under Jack. My card appears to be correctly installed and recognized, which is to say I can get
sound out with the test instruction mentioned on the PlanetCCRMA page (aplay -device="plughw"
soundfile.wav). However, there is something bizarre: 

- No digital inputs or outputs are present in either the console alsamixer application or the
graphic gamix

As comes to Jack, it seems to be unable to connect to  the card at all through alsa. Below I
reproduce the messages I get and the command line I use (taken from the Jack site as recommended
for RME cards).

I'd really appreciate any help you can give me, as I'm at the end of my knowledge here...


command: jackd -v -d alsa -d hw:0 -p 64

which produces in my system the following:
getting driver descriptor from /usr/lib/jack/jack_alsa.so
getting driver descriptor from /usr/lib/jack/jack_dummy.so
jackd 0.94.0
