I'm running Debian/Linux and installed the Debian package of Icecast.
It's 2.2.0 one.
I got a parsing error I can't detect.
When launching Icecast :
Starting icecast2: Starting icecast2
Detaching from the console
I/O warning : failed to load external entity "/etc/icecast2/icecast.xml"
FATAL: error parsing config file (/etc/icecast2/icecast.xml)
XML config parsing error

- Permission on /etc/icecast2/icecast.xml is "all can read"
- error.log does not tell me nothing (obviuos: the deamon is not
- on Debian, the owner is changed by the rc script (it overrides the
changeowner directive in icecast.xml)

Would you help me to find it out?
I paste you the conf file (passwords are fake :-) )...
