Actually, you want mkpasswd to generate different hashes each
time.  Otherwise you've just handed the attacker the keys.

I tried and tried to get crypted passes to work but to no avail.  It's
been awhile since I've done any work with Icecast so YMMV.  I'm not sure
if the crypting hooks are in place on my floppy based distro.  I think
/bin/login for the console is compiled static.  I'm going to rip Icecast
out one of these days from my project so it's really not an issue for me.


Believing I had supernatural powers, I slammed into a brick wall.
