shoutcaststreaming Posted June 30, 2013 Share Posted June 30, 2013 We are in the middle of a pickle here. A month ago we were getting a ton of support tickets that when peopled used Auto DJ (Centovacast ices-cc) with ICEcast version KH that it would disconnect several times a day. Upon putting in a ticket with Centova and monitoring all servers with Logwatch, I found out that the KH version was give 'segmentation errors' several times a day: May 19 23:10:35 DELL9026 kernel: icecast: segfault at 000000001c000b10 rip 00002b4219974609 rsp 00007fffb9397ea0 error 4 May 20 01:58:11 DELL9026 kernel: ices: segfault at 0000276223e4a1b0 rip 000000321807b4f3 rsp 00007fff5f1827d8 error 6 Centova's reply was:Yup, that is definitely the problem - those segfault lines show that icecast is crashing with a segmentation fault. That means that either you have found a bug in icecast or there is a problem of some sort with the way it was built (incompatible library versions, etc.) I would recommend reinstalling a known good build of icecast - an official build rather than kh if possible - and if the problem persists then post on the IceCast support forums to get it investigated. And I agree with their comments so, we de-installed all KH versions on every server and only used the ICEcast official build version. OK, phew, now for my question. It seems that StreamLicensing ONLY accepts KH versions of ICEcast to validate their service. No non-KH versions are accepted. My quandary is that if we don't use the KH version, we lose all the StreamLicensing customers and if we use the KH version, we lose all our Auto DJ ICEcast customers. Question: Why does StreamLicensing only accept a non-official version of ICEcast ? Any other Stream Hosts see any issues like this with the KH version of ICEcast ?
