Fedora Core 4 with RAID/SATA Driver Support


I have FC5 running Asterisk but there are some issues. As of this date Asterisk is not supported on FC5, only on FC3 and 4. The main problem I am having with FC5 running Asterisk is that remote phone extensions cannot register and have never registered once before even though I see the incoming SIP 5060 on my router log. When I had FC4 installed there was no such problem. But the new set of machines I got have RAID/SATA drives and FC4 cannot install on them because it says it cannot find drivers for them. So now it's either of two options; get a more current FC4 ISO with RAID/SATA driver support or there is an update or workaround for FC5 to resolve this issue. Any suggestions please?

Thanx for the prompt response. Do you know where I can get such SATA drivers and instructions on how to go about this?

Why are you saying Asterisk does not work on FC5 or FC6? I went to www.asterisk.org - can't see any restrictions posted there.

Don't get me wrong, I said I only have issues with remote extensions. Everything else I have tried so far works but that. And if you check http://www.digium.com/elqNow/elqRedi...quickstart.pdf and http://www.digium.com/en/docs/ABE/abe_compatibility.php and http://www.asteriskvoipnews.com/aste...ra_core_5.html

you will see what I am saying. Bottom line is that Asterisk will work on these versions but might have some issues since version packages and directories change they have not been tested and approved by digium themselves. I have updated FC5 and still did not help. I am yet to try FC6.

I am still in need of linux/FC4 SATA drivers and instructions for use.

OK, I see. What's the difference between Business and open-source edition? I'm asking this because building from source will certainly result in properly working copy.

They are both essentially the same just that business edition is privately licensed, has more features and of course support. I have just completed a new install of Asterisk on a fully updated FC6 and still no difference. I have called my ISP and they said port 5060 and anything in that range is open besides the fact that my router log shows it coming in.

Do not know much about RH and FC business. I'd say get RHEL 4 if you feel safer with support. Alternatively use any free Linux and build Asterisk from source. Running an unsupported/discontinued OS (FC3 and 4) is not a great idea IMO.

Thanx for your response. I don't mind getting FC4 to work with the needed SATA driver(s) if it's what will resolve this issue. Until a future time when I can test other newer version that work work as well.

As I said I do not know about FC. I even do not know what kernel is used. For 2.4 you need a kernel patch I'd guess. Switching to 2.6 kernel may require some other stuff upgraded, too. This in turn may break your Asterisk again.

Using FC6 has just added a new problem; during a call to dell to see if they have linux SATA HDD drivers, as usual the IVR requires one to push the numbers appropriate for my call, as I did it does not transmit the dialed numbers to the Dell phone system. So I even pushed all the numbers on the phone without response. Than I called Microsoft just to test, the same thing, then I called my ISP to further test same thing; the digits dialed during a call does not make it to the other side. So for now I am ruling FC6 out as well. Perhaps OpenSuse or AsteriskNow might be an option since I cannot find a SATA driver for the intel g965 chipset.
