Hello ices experts,
I am running icecast2 and ices2 which are working fine for me. What i
can't find in docs is how to startup ices tu run under certain user
account, not as root.
I tried to setuid /usr/bin/ices and change owner without luck... ices
can't be started!
Also, i tried as root, to see if next command will work:
su -l alex -s /bin/bash -c "/usr/bin/ices /etc/ices-live.xm &"
or i added the above line in my startup scripts...but no ices process is
I need this feature for my startup script, because i don't want to allow
ices to be started as root!
Any help will be appreciated!
