Did you installed all of these from rpm packages or from source?
If you installed from source you fooled the package manager that's why I
does not allow you to install them.

You can try with 'rpm --nodeps icecast-something.rpm' if you are sure that
the depedencies are met.

It is even better to install a distibution with saner package manager
(like debian).

And radio operates exactly the same way: you send signals here, they receive
them there. The only difference is that there is no cat."
