icecast 2.x - README
---------------------------------------------------------------------

Icecast is a streaming media server which currently supports Ogg 
Vorbis and MP3 audio streams. It can be used to create an Internet 
radio station or a privately running jukebox and many things in 
between. It is very versatile in that new formats can be added 
relatively easily and supports open standards for commuincation and 
interaction.

Icecast is distributed under the GNU GPL, version 2. A copy of this
license is included with this software in the COPYING file.

Prerequisites
---------------------------------------------------------------------
icecast requires the following packages :

* libxml2 - http://xmlsoft.org/downloads.html
* libxslt - http://xmlsoft.org/XSLT/downloads.html
* curl - http://curl.haxx.se/download.html (>= version 7.10 required)
  NOTE: icecast may be compiled without curl, however this will
        disable all Directory server interaction (YP).
* ogg/vorbis - http://www.vorbis.com/files (>= version 1.0 required)
