OK, This time this VM is just the bare bones Asterisk at Home VoIP PBX. It has not had any updates applied, no passwords have been changed, nothing... Just the fresh install. The virtual hardware is a little different, though. It has the usb and audio configured. For some reason I got more errors on the initial install when I didn't have those.
Also, the hard drive is SCSI! That was very exciting for me to see because it made me think I may be able to install this new version on one of my ESX servers... NOPE! However, there is a new patch to ESX 2.5.2 that says it now supports RHEL4 w/ the buslogic scsi driver and a driver disk image is available for download. So, next time I get the chance, I'll apply this patch to our servers and we'll see if we can then install asterisk@home on ESX. If I can get it to work, I'll post the file.
If you want to see lots of great info about how to update the OS and add all kinds of neat features, check out www.nerdvittles.com
. Also, www.voipjots.com
has a very cool (free) click-to-dial application that is a breeze to install.
Downloads are still pretty heavy and at times slow for the amount of people trying to download. I'll be taking down any previous version of AAH so that the downloads of the older version don't slow down this new one. If anyone is kind enough to setup a torrent, please send me a link and I'll post it on here... and seed it from my home 3.0mb Fiber connection.
