I am trying to set up a stream from my computer. I have set up Icecast,  
and it seems to be working. My OS is Redhat Enterprise Linux 3 and my  
soundcard is a SB Audigy SE working with Alsa.

I have set up darkice as source client, and it seems to be working
I get a really slow input stream from darkice. I think the stream must  
have double speed for a correct playback.

This is the current section of my darkice.cfg

duration        = 0
bufferSecs      = 1

device          = /dev/dsp
sampleRate      = 22050
bitsPerSample   = 16
channel         = 1

bitrateMode     = abr
quality         = 1
format          = mp3
bitrate         = 16
server          = localhost
port            = 8000
password        = XXXXXXXXXXXXXXX
mountPoint      = stream

When I start the stream I hear it on a client. But its to slow. So, what  
can i do?

I have try out the samplerates 8000, 11025, 22050, 44100 and 4800 but I  
hear no difference.
With a samplerate 96000 lame gives up.

All help is greatly appreciated!!!
