Installing Icecast Server on Debian Lenny This Year

Lemme se, the box is…

$ uname -ar
Linux 2.6.26-2-686 #1 SMP Wed Sep 21 04:35:47 UTC 2011 i686 GNU/Linux

Ah, good old lenny. 🙂 Eeh? What’s that? 2011? 😆
Edit sources.list. Lenny is no longer supported.

# vi /etc/apt/sources.list


deb lenny main non-free contrib
deb-src lenny main non-free contrib
deb lenny/volatile main contrib non-free
deb-src lenny/volatile main contrib non-free
deb lenny-backports main contrib non-free

Then update.

# apt-get update

Installing Icecast.

# apt-get install icecast2

Copy config file to home for easy editing later.

# cp /etc/icecast2/icecast.xml /home/*username*/icecast.xml
# chown *username*: /home/*username*/icecast.xml

Edit the file, set the passwords (change all “hackme” inside the file).

$ vi icecast.xml

Then, find something that looks like:


Change it to:


Chown the log file.

# chown *username*: /var/log/icecast2/error.log
# chown *username*: /var/log/icecast2/access.log

Chown icecast’s web configuration.

# chown -R *username*: /etc/icecast2/web

Enabling icecast’s daemon, change it to True:

# vi /etc/default/icecast2

Run icecast:

$ icecast2 -c icecast.xml

All set. Open http://*server*.com:8000
