A couple weeks ago, I sent an email requesting help to get icecast2 to
stream mp3.. I had an incorrect version of ices, and the wrong protocol
set. DOH! 8)

Anyway.. I wanted to say thanks for the help.. and to once again solicit
more.. (Theres always more ;)

Well.. the last round, I set the protocol between ices/icecast correctly
and everything was running beautiful! (That was at 2, or 3 in the
morning) Well, that same morning, some hours later, I woke up and my 
hard drive crashed. I'd spent 3-4 days rebuilding the machine to get it
to that point. *SIGH*

So.. I spent the next 3-4 days getting it to that point again, with a
new hard drive. Everything went well.. Up to the point where I ran ice
for a couple hours again.. Guess what.. It appeared that the hard drive
crashed again. The new one, different controller, etc.

After running a week w/o icecast running and without another crash, I'm
guessing that icecast is triggering the problem.. I've got a sneaking
hunch that it's a combination of two or more of: icecast, ext3 and
firewire. (The hard drive is firewire temporarily while I restructure

I'm gonna restructure things to eliminate one thing at a time.. but
thought I'd throw out the situation to see if anyone has had a similar

(BTW.. This machine is an unpatched 2.4.20 Linux kernel.. Redhat 8.0)


Thanks again for all the help! and for the product! 8)
