Os version? Running kernel? Can you play sound with, let's say, "aplay"?
Does the same thing happen with:
  jackd -v -d alsa -d hw

Did you install jack before installing the ccrma versions? If so, make
sure you have erased all traces of it (usually from /usr/local if you
used the default ./configure options).
