Re: [nslu2-linux] What firmware should I use for a dedicated Asterisk NSLU2?
- Hi Drew,
If you really want to have your "uncluttered" config dir, just create your own /opt/etc/my-asterisk, put all your configs there (modify astetcdir => /opt/etc/my-asterisk inside /opt/etc/my-asterisk/asterisk.conf) and start asterisk with '-C /opt/etc/my-asterisk' and there you go.

It's not a problem, per se, I just find it annoying. It's not my idea of "best practice".
My modules.conf is stripped down to the minimum for my needs but I prefer to work with an "uncluttered" config dir, just the files that are in use. There is also the risk that something will default to "on" without my knowledge when a new config file arrives.
Am I not entitled to the delusion that I know what I'm doing? :-)
Perhaps it comes from years of dealing with bloat in that well known closed-source OS.

Having the all config files doesn't affect the overall functionality, as long as you unloaded all the 'unwanted' modules. I have all the config files under ./etc/asterisk directory and the config is slimmed using the unload directive in modules.conf.

I run Asterisk 1.4 at home on a de-underclocked slug with the basic
Unslung firmware. The slug is unslung to a 20GB 2.5" hard drive (left
over from a laptop upgrade, it's a few years old) stuck in a $15 USB 2
case. Even 20GB is overkill as the full install uses under 320MB! Look
around for a small HDD on ebay or local stores. Asterisk is installed
and updated with "dpkg", my only complaint is that dpkg insists on
re-installing all the * config files that I have tidily removed (it
doesn't overwrite the files I have modified).
