ok... so to get rt some permissions you have to add the group "jackuser" 
to your user. But that will only give you permission to achieve a 
priority of 20 while the combination of rt kernel + rtirq + jack needs a 
higher one.

Add the attached file to to the /etc/security/limits.d/ directory, 
logout and login again.

All users should have appropriate permissions after that change.

I meant, run the "groups" command in a terminal as the user you are 
logged in. That will show which groups are you part of.

If it is an rt permissions problem then it has nothing to do with 
firewire, it will happen with the same error for any soundcard you use.
