broadcast a stream of audio

can someone explain what i need to set up an internal stream broadcast so i can send an audio signal around my LAN?

with my old windows setup i was using Oddcast and Icecast simultaneous

here is what i would like to accomplish:
set up server computer to broadcast ALL its audio to the LAN
play some music
pick up the signal through a client computer

i need to know what software to install to accomplish this aim.

please advise.

I haven’t played with audio broadcasting to a LAN, but icecast server is available for Linux.

ok.
do i need oddcast WITH icecast or does icecast do it all in linux?

I don’t know anything about *cast. I just know that icecast exists for Linux. There is always Icecast.org.

I installed Icecast and Ices.
Have successfully set up the broadcast… well I dont know if there is actually sound coming through or not.

So far, I cannot get my RokuSoundbridge to connect to the broadcast.
My iTunes on my Mac connected, but no sound came through.
here is what the access.log reads:

192.168.1.9 - - [12/Oct/2008:14:58:05 -0400] "GET /schmactop-pandora.mp3.m3u HTTP/1.0" 200 98 "-" "Roku SoundBridge/3.0" 1

Also, what is the best way to see logs actively? I only know vi to view them. There must be a way to see active output to the logfiles.

please advise,

additional information:
as I mentioned itunes on my mac was able to connect, but i could hear no sound coming through the speakers. here is the access.log entry:

192.168.1.16 - - [12/Oct/2008:15:02:27 -0400] "GET /schmactop-pandora.mp3 HTTP/1.1" 200 50473 "-" "iTunes/8.0.1 (Macintosh; N; Intel)" 2

it seems that it is not a network issue, but maybe a configuration issue with ices or icecast.
anyone know?

more information from ices.log:

looks like there is an issue from the metadata name… maybe?
