yes. very little resources are required. A good sound interface is
nice but most cards work nowadays. I do not agree that you should not
install a desktop. I use ices2 with jack and find the desktop to be
useful in other ways than just streaming. I use meterbridge to monitor
levels and qjackctrl (frontend for jack) so I can monitor and use
multiple inputs and outputs.
