    New build today adds password prompts on first login and chan_dongle. Thanks, @TirsoJRP.

    Should be available on SourceForge about 1 p.m. EST, Saturday.

    Well, we've hit a roadblock moving this from the PC/VirtualBox environment above to an actual Raspberry Pi. It seems that PHP 5.6 isn't available for Raspbian 9 and its ARM platform even though it is available for Debian 9 with Intel processors. I'll send Ondrej Sury a note and see if he is considering an ARM build but, absent that piece of the puzzle, I think migration to Raspbian Stretch is probably not feasible. We will drop back to Raspbian Jessie for now.

    Not to worry. Jessie is rock-solid reliable especially for a PBX with FreePBX GPL modules.

    I thought I might have a go at installing php 5.6 on my Pi3 (Rasbian 9) but a quick search reveals that installing from source on Stretch (intel included) is not for the faint of heart!
    I hope that Ondrej Sury can come up with a build as it's beyond me.

    Almost finished with the Jessie build with Incredible PBX 13-13. Still have a whopping 66MB of free space on a 4GB microSD card. With Asterisk 13 and FreePBX 13 GPL modules, Jessie is probably a safer OS anyway because of the need for stable PHP 5 and ODBC support. Always makes me nervous using packages from outside the primary repositories, but the VirtualBox build is available for those that want to live on the Bleeding Edge. :death:

    Only bug so far is I forgot which month we were in for the version number. :eek:

    Interesting...

    Is this the correct site? http://wiki.allstarlink.org/wiki/Main_Page

    That's a preconfigured distro. IMHO, this would require extensive work and testing to integrate this with IncrediblePBX. Running it on another systems seems to be a better option.

    If you have a simple how to and a link for a cheap usb adapter that can work with the Midland LXT490VP3 let me know.

    It's Soup!

    The Gold Standard: It’s Incredible PBX for Raspbian 8 and Raspberry Pi 3

    [​IMG]

    It’s been exactly a year since we first released Incredible PBX® 13-12 for the Raspberry Pi®. Today we are pleased to introduce this 2018 update. We’ve updated Asterisk® to the latest 13.19.0 version and added most of the FreePBX® 13 GPL modules to the build. It’s one terrific platform! For Cisco phone buffs, we’ve added SCCP support. And chan_mobile now is included for all those wishing to interconnect a cellphone to your PBX. By popular request, you now can run Incredible PBX from an external USB hard drive as well.

    We originally had planned to move up from Raspbian 8 Jessie to the Raspbian 9 Stretch platform with this build, but we hit a major stumbling block when we couldn’t find a way to incorporate PHP 5.6 for ARM upon which FreePBX depends. For the pioneers, we have produced a Raspbian 9 version which runs with a Raspbian emulator that includes PHP 5.6 under VirtualBox on almost any desktop PC or Mac. It also showcases the entire collection of RasPi goodies including LibreOffice. You’ll find it in the SourceForge repo together with the Raspbian 8 version for the Raspberry Pi hardware.

    If you enable faxing, you will see endless notices like this:
    Code:
    Restricting registration for peer 'iax-fax0' to 60 seconds (requested 300)
    You may want to add the following patch to /etc/asterisk/iax_general_custom.conf and restart Asterisk:
    Code:
    minregexpire=60
    maxregexpire=600
    defaultexpire=300

    just a fix for chan_dongle

    create a udev rule file:

    /etc/udev/rules.d/92-dongle.rules
    Code:
    KERNEL=="ttyUSB*", MODE="0666", OWNER="asterisk", GROUP="uucp"

    Was webmin removed from the pi image? pbxstatus says it is up, but there is not a single webmin file to be found.

    Wasn't enough room on the 4GB microSD card. Moving to 8GB card meant a huge download. Here's how to add it back in:
    Code:
    echo "Installing WebMin..."
    echo "deb http://download.webmin.com/download/repository sarge contrib" > /etc/apt/sources.list.d/sarge.list
    cd /root
    wget http://www.webmin.com/jcameron-key.asc
    apt-key add jcameron-key.asc
    apt-get update
    apt-get install webmin -y
    sed -i 's|10000|9001|g' /etc/webmin/miniserv.conf
    service webmin restart

    Already done.

    I think you should add cputemp to pbxstatus:

    CPU Temp in °C
    Code:
    /opt/vc/bin/vcgencmd measure_temp|cut -d '=' -f2 | sed 's/..$//'
    [​IMG]

    And as soon as I apply oil to my Linux Fu, the state of chan_dongle devices from command:
    Code:
    asterisk -rx "dongle show devices" | sed -n '1!p'
    device state provider
