OK, lots of things have happened since last I wrote.
1. I determined that yes, Geoff, somehow something got installed into
/usr/bin that was called icecast2, not icecast. That's been resolved
now with a *COMPLETE* uninstall/removal of icecast and re-install. The
icecast2 script in /etc/default has been modified to set ENABLE to
2. I looked at the script in /etc/init.d called icecast2 and
discovered a couple things. One, I do not think it was supplied with
the icecast install, since when I renamed it and re-installed (see
above), it didn't come back. So I looked into it and discovered that
yes indeed, it was looking for /usr/bin/icecast2. I removed the '2'
and opened a brand-new can of worms--looks like a recursive calling
/bin/sh -x ./icecast2
+ test -x /usr/bin/icecast
+ '[' -r /etc/default/icecast2 ']'
+ . /etc/default/icecast2
++ test -x /usr/bin/icecast
++ '[' -r /etc/default/icecast2 ']'
++ . /etc/default/icecast2
+++ test -x /usr/bin/icecast
+++ '[' -r /etc/default/icecast2 ']'
+++ . /etc/default/icecast2
... down to well over 64 levels ...
