    if you want something interesting try this, go grab any pc that supports raid, setup a raid mirrored drive, install piaf3, convert to freepbx 11 using http://wiki.freepbx.org/display/FD/Converting+PBXiaF+Distro+to+a+FreePBX+Distro

    now update to freepbx 12, no issues, everything works, now upgrade to freepbx 13, no problems, everything works, as long as you never reboot, the kernel upgrade in freepbx 13 does not support raid...

    result, the kernel panics every time.

    pretty major bug, but PiaF is not affected by it and nor is Centos or SL, or Oracle, or RHEL, as it's something Sangoma/Schmooze/FreePBX have done with their kernel, if someone could show me the kernel config I'm sure I could work it out, but I don't know where to look for it.

    If it's not broken, why fix it, if it's not broken why change it?

    hecatae: That's interesting since Rob Thomas today suggested just the opposite on the Whirlpool Forum in Australia:

    If you haven't already, look in /boot/config-$(uname -r) . It's there for an older FBX VM I have running.

    Time bomb just looks like a date bug to me, but I'm not wearing my tin hat today. :hat:

    Time bomb/bug in 2040. I'm good with that. Plan on not supporting FreePBX by then, I'll be old and drooly. of course, Synack already thinks I'm old and drooly...

    Ashton Tate used to call them anomalies. 2038 is the drop dead year. Fixed in Linux and date routines, but not elsewhere apparently.

    Ashton Tate - That's a name I haven't heard in a LONG time.

    Dbase II and Dbase III - I remember very well. ... but don't forget - then came along Clipper

    WAMPUM may be a bit long in the tooth but, fortunately, its author hasn't aged unlike some...
