if that was the actual commandline you gave, it will not work.

you need libsamplerate-dev, libasound-dev and jack-dev

first... untar the jack-source and ./configure and make.

then untar netjack and enter the directory...

then type:

scons -jack_source_dir=/home/jack-source

but it should rather be somthing like:

scons -jack_source_dir=~/jack-audio-connection-kit-0.99.0

no sudo required at this point.
if your jackd is intalled into /usr then scons -i as root should install

otherwise copy to the location where jackd is looking for

i am about to release netjack-0.10 which has much improved alsa_in and
alsa_out clients.
