May be some stale temporary files hanging around in
the jack temporary location. Don't know where you
configured jact to put the temporaty files -- try
/tmp/jack. Delete all the temporay files (rm -f
jack*)under the temporary directory and try to start
jackd. Also, make sure you have the permission setup
correctly to write to this directory
