What's hard about installing two software packages: jackd and
qjackctl? I run a vanilla kernel, not patching at all. I also don't
run as root, I use the realtime-lsm which can be installed through
Synaptic as well in one small additional step. Dmix is okay for a
desktop system, but not really a proper solution for music production. 

And depending on the card you have, dmix can be hard to setup as well.
See my Dmix-Howto for a detailed example using the ICE1712 cards.
