[ardour-users] jackd problem: pcm failed

I have installes alsa, patched a 2.4.22 kernel with preempt and 
lowlatency, compiled the kernel with Sound Card Support,  Creative 
SBLive! and OSS Sound modules as modules, set kernel.lowlatency=1 and 
copied asoundrc to ~/.asoundrc, opened a terminal in the X display, 
switched to root and entered jackd -R -d alsa - sblive.

jackd aborts with the message:"pcm.c:690: snd_pcm_nonblock: Assertion 
'pcm' failed."

What am I missing?
