Hi, I am interested in using Asterisk.
I am an ex-telecoms engineer so am familiar with configuring PABXs such as Avaya IP Office - so I do not envisage config to be a problem.
I have a linux box (Suse 9.1) but very little knowledge of linux. This is where I expect big problems because I don’t really understand the linux process of installing/compiling software. Are my fears founded? I want to get on with getting the system working, not spends ages struugling with the install.
Is there an off the shelf version of Asterisk or an Asterisk linux distro, that would make it easier for me?
Any advice for a newbie who’s stuggles outside of windows.
