I'm running Ubuntu 10.04 and I have an external Sound card: Phonic Firefly 302.
I've connected the device, installed Jackd, added the lines:
@audio - rtprio 99 @audio - memlock 500000 @audio - nice -10 to /etc/security/limits.conf
logged out, logged back in,
ran qjackctl (sudo qjackctl to be exact),
ran the settings and chose "firewire" on the driver option, pressed "Start" and that was the output:
