Hi All,

I recently install an M-Audio Delta 66 card into my computer.  I forgot to
turn off the mainboard audio controller first.  I rebooted and turned it off
in BIOS but now Jack won't start.  The message I get from qjackctl below.

Any help to resolve this is greatly appreciated.  i suspect its something

Thanks a lot,

Qjackctl message:
