Hello everyone!

I'm new here.

Cause my mainboard , it just support these OSs

such as : CentOS 4.6 , Fedora 9 , 10 , 11 ..., Debian

But I want to use the mainboard to install Elastix.

Is there have some ways to install Elastix form these OSs ?

Thanks a lot.

ps. my mainboard is VIA EPIA-V , processor arch is i586.

Welcome tjtsaitsai:

I use similar MB's for many small fanless "under the sink" installs., they are quite happy with Centos 5.x/Elastix, the only likely problem you will have is temporally arranging for an IDE based CDROM drive for the initial install as hardware support for modern sata/usb-storage/nic hardware is strangely absent in Elastix as yet. (Though there are work-arounds for these problem too.)

I suggest you just burn a cd and try booting it from a pata/IDE attached cdrom and see if the boat floats.

regards, dicko

Thank you dicko for the reply

When I am using Elastix CDs or CentOS 5 CDs to boot.

And when I press ENTER to initial the installation

it will reboot automatically.

I found a discussion that CentOS's website wiki says "CentOS 5 not support i586 arch"

So I want to know that is there some ways to install Elastix from other Operation Systems.

please help me , thanks everyone.

My apologies mine are EPIA-M

However you could try installing Centos 4.0,
making a file:

/etc/yum.repos.d/elastix.repo

with the content of


[elastix]
name=Elastix RPM Repository for CentOS
baseurl=http://repo.elastix.org/elastix/1/base/i386/
gpgcheck=0
enabled=1
#exclude=elastix-mysqldbdata

[elastix-updates]
name=Elastix RPM Repository for CentOS
baseurl=http://repo.elastix.org/elastix/1/updates/i386/
gpgcheck=0
enabled=1
#exclude=elastix-mysqldbdata





<end>

and try a

yum install elastix

and resolve any dependancy issues

[edit]
I tried it on a VM and there are LOTS, you will need to update glibc to 2.5 (from Centos 5) etc. etc. etc.
(you better be brave, if you go that route)
There is also
http://www.elastix.org/index.php?option ... rom_script
that will get 1.1 working

It doesnt support it because its compiled for i686.

Unfortunately the *easiest* solution would be to go for the likes of FoxConns 45CS Fanless Atom board:
http://www.foxconnchannel.com/product/M ... -us0000404

We've had great success with these, much more powerful than the Via boards and cheaper too. Only issue is you need to grab the driver from the Intel website and compile it (Not difficult).

Hope this helps


Chill.
