Hi all. I'm brand new to Linux and want to install Icecast 2.4.2 on Raspian.

I used apt-get to install Icecast 2.4.0, and the install would stream 
music, but none of the status or admin pages would work. I ran the 
install by typing sudo apt-get install icecast2 from ~.

I thought I might get better results if I built and installed myself. 
Anyone able to provide step-by-step instructions to unpack and build 
from the tar.gz, or point me to a good tutorial online for doing such? 
In particular, which directory should I be in to initiate the work? Do I 
need to use sudo? Once installed, what do I do to make it run on system 
boot? I will be running this install from a fresh image. Thanks!
