NB> cd /home/Darkmeteor/bin
NB> nohup /home/Darkmeteor/bin/ices /home/Darkmeteor/bin/ices-playlist.xml > /dev/null 2> start &

NB> else
NB> echo "already running!"

NB> if I run this file from the shell, it works, but if it's run by

No one here uses crontab to keep their icecast/ices servers up ? If so
do you have any other solution ?
