[icecast] Requesting some support...

Hi all,

Sorry if I ask something too basic, but I've just started with icecast and I
don't know if I have done something wrong.

I have downloaded and compiled icecast. I have modified the configuration
file and added a test mp3 file in /usr/local/icecast/static/ann.mp3.
Finally, I have started it obtaining the following:

[chris at linux2 bin]$ ./icecast

When I point any browser or winamp to http://martescooh.org:8000 or
http://martescooh.org:8000/ann.mp3 the cosole shows the following:

I'm sure I've forgot to read something, but I don't know what. I've looked
around the internet and found nothing. In fact I have not found any basic
document about streaming...

Can anybody give me a hint about what I'm doing wrong?

thanks a lot

Christian Pomar
