What exactly are you referring to?


#3

I would whant to know what the problem is when the text appears. and how it can be fixed


#4

Please post the text you are referring to and more detail (ie - what is in your extensions.conf and other configs) when this happens. Too little information to go off of at the moment.

what should i do to this??


#10

sry for beein a pain in the ass but i just cant figure out what to do…


#11

Strangely, doing a grep for the word “overrun” in the Asterisk source code doesn’t throw up any such message. But my sources are v1.2 - i guess you must be using 1.0.9?

If so, why don’t you upgrade to 1.2? This is guaranteed to get rid of that message, i’d say, as that message doesn’t appear to exist in v1.2! :wink:


#12

i am using 1.0.9 but i was told to use it because they said it is the newest STABLE version


#13

but IF i upgrade it do i have to uninstall and install the new version or can i update it so that i dont have to fix the configs again?


#14

That depends on what you mean by stable. I’ve been running 1.2 for quite a while now and i’ve never had any problems with it. But it doesn’t get very heavy usage. If you’re using Asterisk in a business environment, there may be some merit in using 1.0.9 - however, i think 1.2 is so much better you’re better off with that whatever. At your own risk, of course! :wink:


#15

hmm… maybe i should upgrade because its just a test machine… it woant be on heavy load… maybe maybe… but what about the update… can i just update and dont have to worry about the configs?


#16

I would upgrade and also make sure you are not running an X server on your Asterisk box.

And I have never seen your ‘Recording: overrun’ message before either.


#17

Yes. However, it’s a good idea to update the configs as well, as some of the config possibilities have changed a bit.

The way i do it is to move /etc/asterisk to something like /etc/asterisk-backup and then do the full install - including the configs. Then move the new /etc/asterisk to /etc/asterisk-new, move the old one back to /etc/asterisk and put the new one in the old as a sub-directory. Then i have a look through the new configs and add any features i want to add into the old files, and copy any new files to /etc/asterisk. You certainly don’t need to start the configs again from scratch.


#18

okay… that would me a good idea… thanx again…


#19

ok… so 1.2Beta is installed… but when trying to start asterisk it wouldn… so we tryed to start the safe_asterisk but then this came up ->

[root@linuxtest sbin]# safe_asterisk

#20

you’ll actually need to start looking at the log file in /var/log/asterisk to make any sense of it.

there’ll be something in your config that * doesn’t like, and only by reading the log messages will you be able to see what it is.
