"icecast2" is a common binary name used on debian and derivative systems.
Didn't you say that you were on Fedora which should rather have
"icecast" as the binary name?

https://apps.fedoraproject.org/packages/icecast
Says, that there are latest packages (of 2.4.1) for all supported
releases. (I love them for this!)

Did you for some strange reason install a debian package that was run
through 'alien'? Or its init script?

Cheers

Thomas
