If you want to use google voice with asterisk, you'll need to install a fresh copy of Asterisk 1.8 or another distro that includes Asterisk 1.8 Thank you very much for the two answers. I read about PBX in a flash has that feature included, and also is using Asterisk 1.8. Elastix 1.6 = Asterisk 1.4 and Elastix 2.0 = Asterisk 1.6.If you want to upgrade the current Elastix software (v.1.6 or v.2.x) to the latest packages version then proceed according to the Current Elastix software packages update.If you want to upgrade the Elastix 1.6 software to the latest Elastix v.2.x then proceed according to the Upgrade to the next major Elastix version. If the Linux kernel was upgraded then please check that the correct kernel is defined as the default option in the GRUB configuration file (/boot/grub/menu.lst).
The company has been around for over 10 years and at time of writing over 100,000 Elastix servers have been registered worldwide in addition to over 3.5 million software downloads.
If not I'm rather wary of doing updates just for updating's sake. This is just a spare box I am setting up to replace a production box if an emergency arises. It is generally safe when you use an Elastix binary install because the repositories (the place Yum checks for updates) are set by the Elastix disti makers.
The email appears to have come because I set my email address on the "general settings" page of elastix under the "check for updates" section at the bottom of this page.
The parameter 'default' there must point to the last installed kernel.
In example below, we have default=0 that will cause the kernel 2.6.18-308.24.1.el5 to be loaded: default=0 timeout=5 splashimage=(hd0,0)/grub/gz #hiddenmenu title Cent OS (2.6.18-308.24.1.el5) root (hd0,0) kernel /vmlinuz-2.6.18-308.24.1.el5 ro root=LABEL=/ initrd /initrd-2.6.18-308.24.1.el5title Cent OS (2.6.18-238.12.1.el5) root (hd0,0) kernel /vmlinuz-2.6.18-238.12.1.el5 ro root=LABEL=/ initrd /initrd-2.6.18-238.12.1.el5title Cent OS (2.6.18-194.26.1.el5) root (hd0,0) kernel /vmlinuz-2.6.18-194.26.1.el5 ro root=LABEL=/ initrd /initrd-2.6.18-194.26.1.el5An example of such an upgrade is the upgrade from Elastix 1.6 to Elastix 2.x.
As both of these software solutions interface with Asterisk, they have very similar features and functionality that is frequently changing, and dependant on which version of Asterisk the software supports, and the rate of development of new versions of software that each provider can release.
