you are right, i want to stream the output from amarok to the
streamserver on the inet. So ices2 has to resample the sound and
transmit it to icecast2. With ices0 and a static playlist, it works very
well, with resample to 96kb/44khz too.

But i it seems, the it is a bad idea to the the mac soundcard, which
does not have a hardware mixer etc. Everthing has to be done in software.

My hope is to use dmix, but don't know the right ~.asoundrc config file.
I thought, it would be the best, to use the mac snd card, cause i don't
use it for other things.
