Hi Icecast,

My name is Luis Barrett as you know, for past couple of days now I been
having problem getting icecast started. The first thing
I notice that we need to have a icecast.pid file but reading the script it
say when you start up icecast it will create the icecast.pid
file for us. So this is my question because now I'm getting upset because no
one as been able be straight forward with us. We need
to now why can we not start up icecast? So it can create the icecast.pid
file and where that in our directory that file need to go? Again
we have a Redhat Enterprise LS 4 reading the some forum and searching online
we notice everyone having the same problem on a
different Distro. I want to know how to start up icecast on our Distro if
you now the answer please reply if you don't know the answer
please let me know that you don't know the answer because I respect more if
don't know the answer then just prolonging the issue
or just direct me to the person who dose like the person who created icecast
because right we are getting very upset that no one can
not give us a straight answer.

Thank you,

Luis Barrett
