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:
Look at me replying to all these ancient topics. I should come here more often. Yes, we are using **exactly** CentOS. We just can't call it that. Everything's the same, not even recompiled. Kernel, Modules, packages, everything. The only thing we've had to recompile is anything that has 'CentOS' or 'Redhat' in it, and replace it.
*shrug*. What can ya do.

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

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