I am having difficulty deciding which Linux distribution to use for installing asterisk - I used RedHatAS v4 and found numerous problems when having to install additional programs such as gcc, bison etc. PS I am new to linux so do not understand what is wrong when they do not compile.
Which would be the best Linux distribution to use bearing in mind that I am new to Asterisk, but do not wish to use AsteriskNow.
ask 2 people that question and you’ll get at least 4 opinions !!
it sounds like you want to go for a well-supported package-based distro. CentOS always seems to be a popular choice, hence the TB guys (and others) using it for their base systems.
my main system started life as a ClarkConnect 3.2 box but has been through a few changes. if you want a small multi-functional box either to learn with, or for a home/small office install, it’s what i would suggest … but maybe version 4.0.
[quote=“Rivoscar”]Hi, iÂ´m completely new at asterisk.
I have nerver worked in linux, and I heard about an asterisk version that run over windows, what can you say about that? [/quote]
Uhm dont waste your time… Asterisk is best suited for Linux, whilst there has been a port to a Window$ based platform, it is not ideal and i have seen and heard of many problems with the ported version, sometimes it is just best to work your way around it running Linux, the end result will be a much more reliable system IMHO.
Can you possibly elaborate a little further on this?
Do you want to use something like SugarCRM and when you say “to many other pcs on the net.” do you mean the local network or other PC’s on the Internet?
For something like this it can help a lot if your more specific about what you want.
I mean local network, the idea is that IÂ´m in command of a gruop of 100 people, and i need to cordinate meetings, and send orders to those people, actually i do it via cell phone, so i waste my time talking and talking.
The idea is a planner, in which I plan my time, and for example i want “peter” to go to a meeting at 8:00 on friday. SO I search PeterÂ´s pc in the network and by this palaner this info is sent to the destination, and then in something like a schedule, in friday at 8:00, peter will see, !meeting! And I will no waste my time talking to everybody, just send orders!!
