I want to stream

Hello and thanks to all for taking a look at my post here.
Ok I am still new to linux and I have had little success getting packages and so on to work right.
I could really use some help getting a streaming system to work on my system, basically I am a dj and I would like to record and even stream live from my box. I have tried to even just record but the software that I have tried like wired ardour and others will not work for me for one reason or another... I am sure it is my lack of knowledge so that is why I am looking for some real help.
I am thinking about doing another fresh install of slack 9.1 and from there if someone would be willing to walk me thru I would really be grateful. Any takers
Thanks, Mark

There are numerous stream servers out there for linux -- the most popular shoutcast is also available on the linux platform...

You could also do a search at for something like "streaming audio". Also, check out for audio packages precompiled for slackware.

Do you mind breaking down what you did to get it to work and what version of slack you are using?
I am thinking about starting with a fresh slack 9.1 for the fact that I have tried many others on the version I have running now and I do not know if I might have screwed anything up. If you dont mind would you give me a step one and then a step two after I get one down?

Well you can use Icecast also... Or you can build a HTTP server and build a playlist around that, the only problem is that everyone will be able to download you music..

That is good if everyone can download the music right?
Im confused now. first of thanks so far. If anyone has time to take a peek at
that is what I would like to try to do.
My problem at this time is I can not get a program that will let me record from my turntables and store them as a wav, or a rm file. Should be basic right but I am having no success. from there is the next step. after step one I am game for step 2 and so onbut step one is my first challenge. Should i re do my slack install ..... I have no problem starting fresh again?
thanks guys
