If you have rt-caps compiled in your kernel you have to compile jack
with the jack-caps flag Then you can start jack with jackstart as
non-root.Then applikatios that use jack can be started as non root ,but
will have realtime-privileges or something.If they support this feature
and are compiled with the right flag.

I have gentoo with reiserfs and I didn't notice anything special about
it.I think this is another issue,but I can be wrong
