I have been fiddling with the darn thing
for three days now, and i am at whits end. I dunno
why it isn't working. Any help is so much appreciated.
I am trying to use mpg123, liveice and icecast on
my Alpha. It does not have a sound card. All three programs
compile without any problems. If i did not know better,
i just might a throw the alpha off the space station and watch
it burn up on reentry.

i crank out ./icecast and it loads. e.g.:

[root at radius bin]# ./icecast

umm. I check out all previous posts available on xiph.org and
haven't come across any problems like my own. ANY and ALL
HELP is appreciated. Is there a HOWTO for morons version on the
net? I haven't come across anything that might shed some light
on what might be going on her.
