Hi, I'm brand new to linux audio, and I installed planetCCRMA a few
months ago.  I was experimenting with Ardour, and could record and
playback through my onboard sound.  I recently installed a Terratec
Aureon 5.1 Fun soundcard and started having trouble with JACK not
staying running.

Here is what it shows:

16:56:09.811 Patchbay deactivated.
16:56:09.859 Statistics reset.
16:56:09.864 Could not open ALSA sequencer as a client. MIDI patchbay
will be not available.

16:56:16.929 Could not connect to JACK server as client.

This is using kernel 2.6.10-2.1.ll
I have gotten JACK to run sometimes on the 2.6.10-0.1.rdt kernel, but
the system is prone to freezing.

any ideas as to what is wrong would be greatly appreciated!

Thank You!
