do not use jackstart to start jackd on a 2.6 series kernel. we really
need to get rui to remove this option from qjackctl. jackstart is
exclusively for use on 2.4 kernels.

no, that won't help. you don't have permission to run apps with realtime
scheduling. the way to fix this depends a lot on which kernel you are
running and which distribution.
