Hi there,

I'm trying to stream audio from my audio card using ices2/icecast2.  I've 
been following the unofficial HOWTO at 
http://www.6809.org.uk/media/ices2-howto.shtml.  So, I've downloaded and 
installed libshout2, ices2 and icecast2.

Everything starts up OK and I can get stats by pointing my browser at the 
admin page:

  <?xml version="1.0" ?>
- <icestats>
- <source mount="/test.ogg">
  <type>Ogg Vorbis</type>

However, if I try to get at the stream by pointing the browser at /test.ogg 
I get a 404 error.

I've tried saving the stream using the <savefile> tag in the ices.xml config 
file.  This file is always 0 bytes long.

Has anybody seen this before?  I'm running redhat/fedora core1.
