You probably have multiple versions of jack installed. Both in /usr and in
Have you by any chance built jackd yourself (without specifying
--prefix=/usr to the "configure" script) and installed a version of jackd
from your distribution?
If yes, you should remove the one you don't want to use. Either remove the
package installed from your distribution via rpm or apt-get or whatever your
distro uses, or do a "make uninstall" from the jackd source directory you
built & installed jackd from.
