If you start Jack by hand using jackstart (which I alsways do) then
you don't necessarily need to qjackctl, except for making and deleting
the Jack routing connections. But the commands "jack_lsp" and
"jack_connect" are okay for routing as well. jack_lsp lists the active
jack ports and "jack_connect source_port destination_port" will do
connections (jack_disconnect undoes them).

Don't do that, OSS is dead. You only need ALSA's OSS emulation, but
not for Jack.
