Xiph.org provides the latest version of Icecast packaged for various distributions. The packages are built centrally from one set of sources on the openSUSE OpenBuildService instance in the Multimedia/Xiph.org project.

Packages are usually available on release day. Packaging follows closely the original distro packaging to stay a seamless drop in replacement. The packages are meant for users who need the latest version of Icecast or HTTPS support, while their distribution doesn't provide it.

Debian and Ubuntu (in all its flavors)

It takes 4 simple commands to install the latest Icecast version on a deb based distro.

Add the repository

This expects that you have sudo installed, if not, open a root shell and run the echo command directly.

Copy paste the command for your distribution release and make sure that it's executed as one line!

Import the Multimedia signing key

You need to add the openSUSE OBS Multimedia signing key as a trusted key to your system. There are many ways to verify they key, e.g. by a simple web search. After downloading the key, you can run this command:
gpg multimedia-obs.key
Should yield:
pub 1024D/3A802234 2009-04-23 multimedia OBS Project <multimedia@build.opensuse.org>
Then you can import it:
sudo apt-key add multimedia-obs.key

The most simple, but not recommended way is:
wget -qO - http://icecast.org/multimedia-obs.key | sudo apt-key add -

sudo apt-get update
