It seems like if icecast receiving SIGHUP while
running in chroot mode, it fails to open config file.

I run icecast chrooted in /home/icecast:

[2006-10-27  12:32:37] INFO main/main Icecast 2.3.1 server started

[2006-10-27  12:33:10] EROR event/event_config_read Parse error in reading

For a quick fix I just make symbolic link:

%ls -l /home/icecast/home/icecast/etc/icecast.xml
lrwxr-xr-x  1 icecast  icecast  16 Oct 27 12:36
/home/icecast/home/icecast/etc/icecast.xml -> /etc/icecast.xml
