There is a more serious point to this than just geeking around, as a client wants me to build my Asterisk skills and develop some proofs of concept.
I decided to try to run Asterisk on a tiny Gumstix computer. This is not exactly pioneering stuff, although there are some rough edges to the existing process for installing AstLinux on the device.
I am still awaiting arrival* of the Gumstix. When it arrives, I will document the process of installing Astlinux on it and getting it to work as a PBX, on this blog.
* There were strange problems associated with shipping the unit to NZ so it has had to come via London, which added extra problems, including a rather hefty £34 VAT and duty charge, despite the fact it was only touching down in London before coming here. Grrrrr ...
