PIAF2 Bug Reports/Fixes

    If you're trying out the PIAF2 Beta with CentOS 6 and happen to encounter a bug, please post a message in this thread with as many details as possible. Thanks.

  2. darmock PIAF Developer

    I am gratified to see few bug reports! Either that or no one is using the new stuff!

    freepbx seems to have taken to php 5.3 with few errors which have been corrected upstream

    Work on the 64bit progresses. We now have an iso to boots and installs everything however none of our payloads work with with 64bit centos 6.0 we have a solution and we are typing as fast as we can.

    If you are waiting for this ISO consider donation some cash to our cause! I know sounds like pledge week on your local PBS station but....... we have enough machines but hosting fees are coming up among others so some cash would be a good thing. We know times are tough and all of the dev team guys are feeling the pinch also. Heck if we could make $5 per system we could work at this full time......

    PM me if you can help...

    (BTW we just got our first new workstation today and are just waiting for the other workstation and new server to arrive!)

    Thanks to all

    On a fresh install on vmware the main menu of PIAF2 was empty:
    I could access the FreePBX admin by
    I also noticed that Dahdi option in FreePBX menu was blank too.
    My solution to both problems was to edit /etc/php.ini file setting :
    found on this site : http://www.tomjepson.co.uk/tutorials/35/enabling-short-tags-in-php.html


    WM: Thank you for finding this. Here are the two simple commands to run to patch your system quickly:

    I can confirm this seems to work! Thanks a bunch. I think we will add this to the install program until the new updated menu is available

    Tried to install PIAF2 beta..

    Ive tried to install on 3 different PCs but found the following problems:
    1. When you get to the prompts for 'advanced settings' and 'which freepbx ver', and the 'time to change passwords' it seems it doesnt recognize me hitting ENTER, or hitting '1' or 'a' for the choices, or when I hit the down arrow to change selection of Asterisk version. What seems to help is when I wait 30 seconds each time to make a selection.
    2. After a certain point in the install the screen seems to freeze with everything blank but a white bar at the bottom saying 'centos 6'. It just sits there forever.
    I am extremely patient. Is it something I am doing wrong?
  6. darmock PIAF Developer

    This is a known problem with centos 6. DO NOT USE THE LEFT AND RIGHT ARROW KEYS AT ALL! THE UP AND DOWN ARROW KEY SHOULD WORK FINE. This is an upstream "improvement" by RH and neyond the control of PIAF. I keep hoping that there will be a fix for this sometime soon.

    Are you using hardware or virtualized systems. I have only seen the problem with the freezing on virtualized systems.

    Also if the screen blanks out DO NOT USE THE ARROW KEYS to get it back. Tap the spacebar just once!

    We have also heard that Centos 6 will not run on certain types of hardware reliably without some hacks. As it has been from the beginning PBX in a Flash will NOT run on every hardware system ever made. The current version of Centos also requires beefier hardware and more memory. I now recommend a minimum of 4 gbs of memory and a minimum of 80 gb hd space for small installs. You also need a modern processor preferably dual core. Atoms running 32bit Centos seem OK but I suspect this will change. You want 64 bit dont run an atom. But hey I just write this stuff.

    I've just looked at the latest PBX in a Flash beta ISO - it's enormous at 1.79Gb

    I have reduced the size to 624Mb by removing the packages not installed during the initial ISO installation, using the techniques described at http://nerdvittles.com/?p=655 which should make the ISO a tad more bandwidth cap friendly.

    The key to only including the packages you need on the ISO is the command "yum list installed" which is provided by the yum-utils package.

    I've attached the annotated script, which I hope you can use to bring the ISO back down to CD size.

    I've made a copy of the resultant ISO, PM me if you want the download link to test.

    Thanks for the effort. I suppose the BETA tag for the ISO was confusing. I have stated in my previous posts that this was not the final size nor the final ISO. Rather this was the one that compiled without errors and we got it out the door so people could get it in their hands. We have already created a paired down version which will be the final ISO's and they are smaller. They won't be released until PIAF moves out of beta.

    Error in pbx-menu

  11. darmock PIAF Developer

    damn one more thing.... Thanks am on it. Going to shut down till monday shortly

  12. darmock PIAF Developer

    fixed will take a while to update in piaf space. You can get it shortly by doing update-programs -d

    Sometime in the next hour it will be uploaded. Also since I have had some much feedback on incredible fax 2 (sarcasm) I have moved it to the pbx-menu program so perhaps someone will test it.

    2x separate v2 PiaF installs w/ Incredible PBX and running blacklist app. Noticed in iptables (using webmin) port 5060 is TCP. Changed to UDP from webmin.
  14. Graham_UK New Member

    As is script not extracting Freepbx version due to sed referencing wrong line in modules.xml (see attached file). I've done a simple fix but a more robust solution would be to search for the version tag. I'm not that familiar with 'sed' but will have a look when I get a chance unless someone else already knows how.

    Apologies if I've not posted correctly - this is my first post - Also couldn't submit post in IE9 so had to use Firefox

    Thanks for your submission. This is used in incredible backup 1.0 and is no longer used in the new incredible backup 2.0. We now use a completely different solution. Incredible-backup 2.0 will be out in a while however it is designed only for PBX in a Flash 2.0.6.x

  16. wardmundy Nerd Uno

    Hi Graham,
    Thanks for the tip. Here's the problem. The FreePBX Dev Team changed the contents of module.xml somewhere between FreePBX 2.7 and FreePBX 2.9. So... what used to be on line 4 is now on line 7 in FreePBX 2.9. Incredible Backup 1.0 was designed for use on systems running FreePBX 2.5., 2.6, and 2.7.

    As Tom noted, we'll have a new release shortly for PIAF2 systems running FreePBX 2.8, 2.9, and 2.10. It deciphers the FreePBX version in a different way. But thanks for the heads up!!
  17. Graham_UK New Member

    Thanks for that. I'll try the new version once it's available.

    Converting my Home PIAF to today from and I noticed a Typo in the installer.
    Install-Purple Step 3 *if* 4 where you select the FreePBX should be 3 *of* 4. Not anything major - but something to possibly change in the next revision.
    Also: I accidentally picked FreePBX 2.8 not 2.9 and didn't notice it until the confirmation screen where it lists what you picked for time zone, etc. Could a method be implemented there to make a change if you picked the wrong one? It may be there and I just missed it.
  19. blanchae Guru

    How about after selection, a summary page is displayed to confirm before committing?
  20. darmock PIAF Developer

    already is at the end with a confirmation page which lists your choices and if you want you can go back and reselect things
