    Have this installed on my home production system and so far have only noticed a few things which don't work

    1. In address book is no external numbers only extensions
    2. When using ##70 to park a call it doesn't announce the park number, instead it just hangs up but call is parked.Might be a headache if you have a busy system
    3. Restoring from a backup of 1.4.2 worked smooth no major issues
    4 Once installed you will need to update all freepbx modules as most are disabled for upgrade


    Will post any more I find

    > 1. In address book is no external numbers only extensions

    The Problem, wrong variables in the config file for the Address Book module.

    To fix it, please edit the /var/www/html/modules/address_book/configs/default.conf.php

    and remove the old tow lines

    $arrConfig['module_name'] = 'adress_book';
    $arrConfig['templates_dir'] = 'themes';

    and add these lines

    global $arrConfModule;
    $arrConfModule['module_name'] = 'address_book';
    $arrConfModule['templates_dir'] = 'themes';
    $arrConfModule['dsn_conn_database'] = "sqlite3:////var/www/db/address_book.db";

    Hi
    First, my congratulations for the great job that you have done with Elastix. I am really fascinated with it.
    Now, because I am using ISDN-BRI interfaces to PSTN, can you please shortly explain me what it would be necessary to install to make them functional with DAHDI. I am saying this, because with ZAPTEL, a had to download and install bristuff drivers. I dont know what i'll have to do to make them work with Dahdi. The cards that I am using are listed as:
    ZTHFC1 "HFC-S PCI A ISDN card 0 [TE] (1-port ISDN-BRI card)
    Thank you, and I wish you many many successes in the future, you deserve that

    Hi Rafael.

    You say that "Actually 32 bits version is ready for download", but I see only the 64Bit and not the 32Bit version.
    Can you give me the link?

    abukhazneh,

    Like any beta or Release Candidate, they can never be regarded as stable.
    1.3 is the only release can be regarded as stable right this minute.

    1.5RC1 is usable, however 1.5RC3 is due out in the next 24-48 hours (guesstimate) and has had a lot of improvements made in it and gone through a lot of testing from Developers and Beta testers.

    1.5 needed this testing due to the changeover to native DAHDI (the new ZAPTEL). Personally I am looking forward to the stable release of 1.5 which shouldn't be far away now.

    Regards

    Bob

    Everything is fine. But the openvox A1200P is not recognized by dahdi. Can you include the Openvox patch in the stable release?

    Well guys...

    Here is something you should take care of before a 1.5 final release. It seems to effect AMD Opteron systems.

    http://bugs.digium.com/view.php?id=13930

    It is causing audio issues. Audio fades in & out every few seconds. Thus making the current iteration unusable for any AMD Opteron systems.

    I would highly suggest this patch be implemented before a final 1.5 release. I guess I'm the only person running elastix 1.5 betas on an Opteron box.

    We would releae the next sable version of Elastix, when it is ready. You should be awere that somethings could go wrong, so you should be ready to fix things. Also it depends what implementation you are doing, if you are going for 100 users I would recomend 1.3, but if you are going to implement an small one of about 10 users it might be safe to impelemnt 1.5 rc4.

    Good luck

    Rafael

    Are there issues with this latest RC and a Digium TDM800P? Ever since an upgrade i get

    FATAL: Module wctdm24xxp not found.

    when I issue a modprobe wctdm24xxp commmand. Dhadi does not seem to have gotten upgraded properly. The card is detected at the hardware level.

    When I try to dial out I get "All circuits are busy". Inbound seems to work fine and I can call outbound through my less.net sip trunk.

    Any ideas?

    Thanks
