I have recently made a fresh install of Ubuntu Studio 9.10 and tried to get
it to work with my EchoAudio 12.

I have followed the instructions at Ubuntu Studio Preparation ( and FireWire
Audio in Ubuntu Studio ( and
everything checks out correctly.

However, when I try to start JACK, this is the error message I get:

Can anyone advise me how to overcome this error and get JACK working.

Thank you in advance.
