On the second tab of the "setup" page of Qjackctl, there is a drop down
box. Are you trying to run "jackstart" or Jackd? AFAIK, Jack-realtime
doesn't even function on versions of jack later than 0.95. If your
running as user and try to run jackd, it will give you that error
message...but so can a dozen other things! RUn qjackctl from a console
as su then try to run jack. 

Is your machine a dual proc? That kernel you identified on your system
is for multi processor systems.
