Through the years I have run into countless threads of people trying to get SHOUTcast setup and running on various versions of CentOS. I am not too sure how successfull anyone has even been at it. All the threads I can remember rested in the user saying they switched to Windows or another flavor of linux.

With that in mind, is there any reason you are bound to CentOS?

am wondering about it as well with what i've read looking through older posts and CentOS seems to be the only linux that keeps coming up as being a problem for people. might install it and see if it is so bad as keeps being mentioned.

that sounds more like a corrupted download.

Shit.

Shame on me. I kinda stoped paying attention when I saw CentOS.

You are right though, CentOS has always been a problem for people. I have never had the desire to check it out and probably don't know enough to actually be able to figure out the problem if there really is one anyway ... so I just let it be one of those things that never seems to work well.

If you do actually check it out, I would be curious to know what you find...

i almost did the same as well, hehe. though most seem to be down to older v1 DNAS so not sure in general.

anyhoo i've got a CentOS 5.5 iso i'm going to give it a go and setup a VM to see how it works (and to get some benefit from the quad cpu i've bought for doing VM testing) so will see what fun things i can see with the v2 DNAS (i know there's some quirks with the existing versions of the non-Windows tools due to locale issues but otherwise i cannot think of much else which would be causing an issue on that one distro).

well i've now got a CentOS 5.5 x86 VM running and had no issues getting the files out of the zip archive for sc_serv2 and other than remembering to do a chmod a+x on the program there weren't any issues with getting it running with a sample configuration (or with a version of sc_serv2 that i've got to play with).

so i'm not too sure what the issue is as there wasn't even the funky locale issue when trying to run the tools as i've seen with other linux variants so i'm somewhat clueless as this was the easiest linux test i've done so far (was simpler then on ubuntu, heh).

[edit]
just tried sc_trans and that worked ok, the slightly newer version i have however throws a wobbly due to needing glibc 2.7 whilst CentOS only ships with 2.5... which is the first instance i've seen that with the different OSes i've been trying the sc_serv2 and sc_trans builds on.
