"So, you want to run your own radio station? This guide will assist you in becoming your own DJ."

"Here are some basic requirements for running a station on your computer, most of which you probably already know:

  • 150+ Mhz Processor.
  • 32 MB RAM.
  • Cable, DSL, or some kind of broadband Internet access.
  • Some free space, for mp3's you wish to broadcast, etc...
  • Any fairly modern Linux distribution, with a v2.2 or newer kernel...
  • XMMS 1.2.x or later. http://www.xmms.org/
  • LAME v3.x or later. http://www.sulaco.org/mp3
  • Icecast 1.3.x or later. http://www.icecast.org/
  • Liveice-XMMS. http://star.arm.ac.uk/~spm/software/liveice.html"

"Installation should be pretty straight forward. Right now you should have all the packages you need to get things rolling. If you're compiling from source, you should compile and install software as directed by the documentation. Also, install dependencies as needed."
