This is a compilation of questions asked in the forums as well as a few other things of general interest. This is also the case for conferences, meaning 10 participants can join a conference. More than 10 calls do work, but audio quality decreases considerably with every additional call. Up to date there is no hardware available that is interfacing with an analog line and can be directly connected to the RPi.
These can be configured as SIP trunks in Asterisk. Same answer as above concerning analog lines. Box Newer models such as the should work as well. The default Asterisk MOH files are provided in several different formats to avoid transcoding whenever possible. FreePBX only recognizes. Before uploading new files remove the old MOH files first or move them to a different location :. After making these changes, a complete reboot is required.
A power supply rated 1A or better 1. Alternatively a powered USB hub can also be used. The following description has been tested with an Edimax EWUn adapter, but should also work in the same way with most of the supported adapters. Your WiFi connection should show up as wlan0, wlan1, etc. A more detailed description can be found here. Before using your own self-compiled Asterisk on RasPBX, remove the installed asterisk16 or asterisk13 package first:.
Once you have reached the menu, select from Add-ons : res config mysql, app mysql, cdr mysql. Then continue:. Just in case you ever want to revert using the compiled binary package from the RasPBX repository again, you can install it any time with:.
By default, voicemail recordings are presented in wav format, encoded with a gsm codec when sent as attachments to emails. These can be sent in mp3 format instead with the following modifications:. Change the setting format from wav49 gsm wav to:. In case you are still running Asterisk 13, replace the package name chan-sccp-ast16 with chan-sccp-ast13which is the correct package for Asterisk After installation, sample configuration files can be found in. A valid sccp. First copy the config file:.
Then follow this tutorial: Overhead Pager over Soundcard. An advanced application for Asterisk is available from i6net. On Debian Stretch based images Asterisk 16 is provided as an optional install.
Follow these installation steps:. Once installed your Asterisk 16 will be continuously updated with patches and security fixes as usual. This has previously reduced the lifetime of SD-cards in many cases. On RasPBX the dashboard scheduler is only run once every hour.I am using version 13 of asterisk on raspbx and it is working great but I would love to have the latest minor version of asterisk updated from I run raspbx-upgrade and it does not update asterisk.
It has updated in asterisk in the past but not since Has version of Is there a way to upgrade asterisk manually from the command line and preserve all my settings? I appreciate any help and thank you for your time. This is because you are using a Jessie based image and unfortunately I have not been able to update the Jessie version of Asterisk for some time now due to problems with the build environment.
But I plan to have this fixed again and then finally update Asterisk for the Jessie images. I'll let you know as soon as a new version is uploaded. I ran raspbx-upgrade and was initally happy to see asterisk was updated The upgradehowever, knocked out my system.
I'm not an expert but I think this update will not work if you are on jessie. Raspbx-upgrade still offered the upgrade on jessie and did not require stretch. The phones were showing forbidden. No incoming or outgoing calls.
I had a backup, a few months old, and I am finally back up but it was a tough day. I still appreciate the effort from Gernot. I also messed up my image because I tried to update jessie to stretch. No good. I would hate to start from a new image again. Hopefully there will be a fix but I will make a backup before I try this again. I'm verry sorry you had so much trouble with your setup. But I'm not sure if the new It works nicely for me, phones are registering and calls work. Just to report that I also had this issue.
Update to Reinstalled version Must be some issue with this new release. I've removed the new version and uploaded However, anybody who already installed it will not get downgraded automatically. I still can't tell why the new version does not work. Eventually one has to reboot the Pi after installing it.I see that the latest image has FreePBX I have instlled and configured RasPBX using the previous image i.
FreePBX That is without having to reconfigure the whole thing from scratch on the new image. Tried naively to just raspbx-upgrade…. You need to ask this over at the FreePBX forums, maybe they have an upgrade tool. They did provide one for upgrading FreePBX from 2.
The upgrade went quickly and smoothly for me - but I only have an experimental RasPBX running in my home for fun. Since it's under Commercial license, I assume that means I have to pay for it?
Is there anyway to upgrade to FreePBX 13 without losing my current setup? Can I do a backup of the existing setup, install the latest image FreePBX13 and Asterisk 11 and then restore my settings and then upgrade Asterisk to 13? Will the configuration work? I actually went back and forth from 11 to 13 back to 11 and am at 13 now while setting up my system and figuring things out.

Gernot - Just installed raspbx.
In the update page I see a message that there is a security issue and I need to upgrade the framework. Go add a comment and a vote. Still an issue this morning. The problem is, that a new installation come with Framework Starting with Version You cannot install, because system is trying to upgrade to framework Therefore all depending modules will fail refuse to install. Click on it. The installer now will upgrade to After this, you are able to upgrade your framework to the needed version After that, you can install your favorite modules again.
And now, hold your applause…. Just wanted to apologize about the trouble. OliverW thanks for helping him with the solution with this. This topic was automatically closed 7 days after the last reply. New replies are no longer allowed. Framework update fails. Tried multiple times, not out of space on the pi. I get the same error in web and the command line. Here is how to solve this: The problem is, that a new installation come with Framework You can also do it at the command line with: fwconsole ma downloadinstall framework --tag Hey guys, Just wanted to apologize about the trouble.
Thank you so much for the clear instruction on how to remedy this annoying issue!I thought I'd seen this somewhere on the forum before, but I was unable to find any discussion on this. Is there an added advantage to running "apt-get upgrade"? It appears to update a good many things in my caseincluding some that could impact security like ssh and the kernel.
You are right, this is in fact a bug in raspbx-upgrade. When I wrote this script initially I wanted it to not update all the Raspbian packages every time it is being called, because most of the updates are not crtitical anyway and it only puts unecessary IO load on the SD card.
So I decided it should only update all the packages whenever there is a new Asterisk version available. But with Rasbian Jessie the behavior already changed to update every time when it is being called.
Unfortunately it is not perfectly compatible with Rasbian Stretch anymore, it should have updated in your case anyway because a new version of the package asterisk13 is available see your post above. I will fix this bug asap and upload a new version.
Thanks a lot for reporting this. I'll post again here when the new version is out. The bugfix is uploaded, from now on raspbx-upgrade always calls apt-get dist-upgrade on each run.
The script updates itself by calling raspbx-upgrade Thanks again for reporting this bug. Help Create Join Login. Operations Management. IT Management. Project Management. Services Business VoIP.
Resources Blog Articles Deals. Menu Help Create Join Login. Forum: General Discussion. Creator: James. Created: Updated: The first and probably the most important reason is security.
A device running Raspbian contains millions lines of code that you rely on. Over time, these millions lines of code will expose well-known vulnerabilities known as Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures CVEwhich are documented in publicly available databases meaning that they are easy to exploit. The only way to mitigate these exploits as a user of Raspbian is to keep your software up to date, as the upstream repositories track CVEs closely and try to mitigate them quickly.
The second reason, which is related to the first, is that the software you are running on your device most certainly contains bugs. Some bugs are CVEs, but bugs could also be affecting the desired functionality without being related to security. By keeping your software up to date, you are lowering the chances of hitting these bugs. To update software in Raspbian, you can use the apt tool in a terminal.
Open a terminal window from the taskbar or application menu:. Next, upgrade all your installed packages to their latest versions with the following command:. Note that full-upgrade is used in preference to a simple upgradeas it also picks up any dependency changes that may have been made.
Generally speaking, doing this regularly will keep your installation up to date for the particular major Raspbian release you are using e. It will not update from one major release to another, for example, Stretch to Buster.
However, there are occasional changes made in the Foundation's Raspbian image that require manual intervention, for example a newly introduced package. These are not installed with an upgrade, as this command only updates the packages you already have installed. The kernel and firmware are installed as a Debian package, and so will also get updates when using the procedure above.
These packages are updated infrequently and after extensive testing. When running sudo apt full-upgradeit will show how much data will be downloaded and how much space it will take up on the SD card. It's worth checking with df -h that you have enough free disk space, as unfortunately apt will not do this for you. Also be aware that downloaded package files. You can remove these in order to free up space with sudo apt clean sudo apt-get clean in older releases of apt.
Upgrading an existing Jessie image is possible, but is not guaranteed to work in every circumstance. If you wish to try upgrading a Jessie image to Stretch, we strongly recommend making a backup first — we can accept no responsibility for loss of data from a failed update.
Oh no! Some styles failed to load. 😵
In both files, change every occurrence of the word jessie to stretch. Both files will require sudo to edit. Answer 'yes' to any prompts. There may also be a point at which the install pauses while a page of information is shown on the screen — hold the space key to scroll through all of this and then press q to continue.
Finally, if you are not using PulseAudio for anything other than Bluetooth audio, remove it from the image by entering:. This section addresses why third-party solutions are of interest and why apt is not optimal for all situations. It also covers existing third-party solutions that support Raspbian. Apt is a convenient way of updating the software of your device running Raspbian, but the limitation of this method becomes apparent when you have a larger pool of devices to update, and especially when you do not have physical access to your devices and when they are distributed geographically.
If you lack physical access to your devices and want to deploy unattended updates Over-The-Air OTAhere are some general requirements:. Unfortunately apt lacks the robustness features, i. This is why third-party solutions have started to appear that try to solve the problems that need to be addressed for deploying unattended updates OTA. Mender is an end-to-end, open-source update manager. A robust update process is implemented with atomic dual system update, there is always one working system partition, and Mender updates the one that is not running.
You can read more On the Mender: how it works web page.A few improvements and additions are already in the pipeline, but I was looking for a convenient way to get new enhancements to existing installations for some time. System upgrades should be capable of:. To achieve this, I wrote a small upgrade tool that is using an additional Debian repository specific to the RasPBX project.
Bug fixes and security patches for software that was installed through the Raspbian repositories are already delivered through apt-get dist-upgrade. On top, the upgrade tool also installs new packages to deliver enhancements and additions as well. To take part in the upgrades, first-time installation needs to be done running this command on the console:.
The downloads page will be continuously updated with short descriptions whenever new upgrades become available. The new system has only been tested with the latest raspbx release, no guarantee if it works with previous versions as well.
Some additional background information: The raspbx-upgrade tool calls apt-get dist-upgradethus security fixes of all Raspbian originated software will be installed. This is the recommended way to keep your system up to date anyhow.
Raspbx-upgrade is installed as Debian package as well, thus if you manually run apt-get dist-upgradeupgrades to raspbx-upgrade will be installed as well. This will however not directly install new software, you need to call raspbx-upgrade to get new additions on top.
If you do not run raspbx-upgradenothing new will be installed to your system and you can still use apt-get dist-upgrade in the way you are used to it. There are no automatic upgrades happening for now. Concerning expected installation lifetime: Debian Wheezy will be officially released as stable soon. From this day, Wheezy will be the stable distribution for at least 2 years.
This is the expected time span during which upgrades can keep your installation up to date, maybe even for longer. I believe you should add the fake-hwclock pre installed…. Can you tell me a bit more about those cases? I decided against adding fake-hwclock by default, for several reasons: 1. In almost all use cases Asterisk runs VoIP calls through the Internet, therefore an Internet connection is present anyway.
Ntpd retrieves local time from the network, there is no real need for fake-hwclock 2. When testing the setup, I found a jump in time caused by ntpd retrieving the time after Asterisk started caused severe instabilities to Asterisk. I had a lot of jitter on calls, and dropped calls. So I decided to have this startup script that ensures Asterisk is started only with correct time. When fake-hwclock is installed, I cannot reliably detect the time is correct or not, and it is highly possible the time jumps later when ntpd suddenly retrieves the correct time.
Therefore, with fake-hwclock installed, I have to fear jitters and drops are happening often with peoples RPis.
Updating and upgrading Raspbian
So I decided against fake-hwclock installed by default. If you want to try it, use the latest image from the downloads page or if you already have the September version, make sure to have the upgrades installed. Then call apt-get update apt-get install asterisk Asterisk 11 seems to work so far, but I could not test much yet.
Therefore, your feedback is highly appreciated! Hi there, Question please re the update. I applied the update to the previous installation and now eth0 does not find an IP adresse from a DHCP server anymore. Ups, sorry for this! I will fix the corresponding upgrade immediately.Installing Asterisk on a Raspberry Pi (Part 1 of 3)
The upgrade tool was written for the RasPBX image from the download page and will most probably fail on other installations. I have just updated the image: raspbx Fetched The repository is not updated and the previous index files will be used.
