--- Code: ---<authentication>
        <!-- Sources log in with username 'source' -->
        <!-- Relays log in username 'relay' -->

        <!-- Admin logs in with the username given below -->

--- End code ---

I believe it's the source password, but I made them all the same on my server.  Also, once you change the passwords, restart icecast first and the darkice second.

That's what I've done, but no joy.

In the icecast error log, I get this:

--- Code: ---[2019-10-20  08:38:40] INFO connection/_handle_source_request Source logging in at mountpoint "/weather/radio" from
[2019-10-20  08:38:40] INFO connection/_handle_source_request Source (/weather/radio) attempted to login with invalid or missing password
--- End code ---

I'm stumped.  What version of raspian did you build on?  Maybe I should try on that and see if I have the same problem. 


nincehelser, did you get this resolved? I have been running a Raspberry NOAA weather radio since last year build on the instructions provide by Tim Urberg. This went very smoothly. After that I build three more, also with no issues. The last one was in April 2019.
Last week the SD card failed in my Raspberry. I got a new SD, followed the procedure and ended up with the same error as you.
Double check passwords, username, server name in darkice.cfg and icecast.xml. Luckily I took snapshots of my builds, so I know the data entries are correct.

As a last resort, I did a complete rebuild not changing any of the default hackme passwords, same result.

I am not a Raspberry expert, so I am clueless how to find this problem. Maybe Tim can have a look and see what is going on.

Mine is build on Raspbian Stretch release 9.11


nincehelser, I managed to get hold of a SD card from one of the units I build. I cloned it, edited the required fields and are back on line.  :grin:

If you are still interested in running a Raspberry, I can send you a cloned SD card to get you going.
At 15GB the img file is way to big to email and I do not have access to a FTP server. Even then it is going to take a long time to upload and download again.

If you are interested, please send me an Email.


Has anyone been able to make this work from scratch using the latest Raspberry software?  I have been trying to get this running and have not been successful.  I have followed the instructions to a tee and no success.


It's been close to a year since I did my last one.  The only issue I've run into is I can't make the service start up properly.  After a reboot, I have to give it a minute to settle down, then restart the service.

But that's the only I had run into.  I have an older PI2 that I dabble with from time to time.  Production is a PI3.
