Performance wise it might just be enough to run

Hi Matthias,

I've had the same problem. The jackd package installed without errors, but the server hangs during the initialisation stage, and never returns the command line. If you add the -v verbose flag, you'll see (or at least I see) that the last message before it hangs is

Jack: JackEngine::NotifyAddClient: name = system

Maybe that would help some experts identify what the problem is.

It would be great to get this solved, as pretty much 100% of Linux sound creation programs rely on JACK.

If you have a usb sound card, you may want to try jackd1 (jackd2 is installed by default, at least on debian, if you install the jackd pseudo-package).

Regarding the built in sound it's sadly a no go, see this topic.
