Last night found me pushing the low-end of the performance
curve, my 486 DX2 / 50Mhz, with 20 Mb RAM. I attempted
installation of the latest frozen Debian GNU/Linux. I(t)
failed miserably due to hardware issues. I need to replace
the IDE controller, among other things. ;) The poor thing's
had nothing but DOS on it for so many years, maybe it's
Checked out the latest Asterisk code, and got
it built. I'm working on turning the 486 into a comm
server, hosting my phone/v-mail/fax, etc...
So far, I'm thinking I'll run a rather recent dev kernel, or
2.4 for sure when it's out, since they have the Quicknet PhoneJack driver
in, but for now, I'm still downloading the latest one from
Quicknet, who I'm going to see tomorrow. :) Is VoIP
really the way
of the future? We'll see.
