...VICIbox Demo is a live CD based off of Ubuntu desktop. Included is a functional version of Vicidial 2.0.5 which runs off of the CD...

This allows you to try out VICIDIAL on any computer without having to overwrite your harddrive.
The ISO contains a complete functional install of VICIDIAL 2.0.5 along with Asterisk, MySQL, Apache and everything else needed to run VICIDIAL including a soft-phone and Firefox web browser to use the admin and agent interfaces. You don't even need an internet connection to get everything working because it is all on board the ISO.
For more information or to download the ISO, go to:

Yep wanted to compain about the the Vicibox 3.1.12.
Suse - LOL... Does not play well with DELL Raid Servers... I am not going to get granular down to who made what chip... was sold by Dell as the Perc 4 and Centos runs this quite well.
Ubuntu - LOL... Does not play with APC Smart UPS network software. Issue, /etc folder structure on Ubuntu is not the same as Redhat or Centos, I have an Email from APC - stating, nope sorry never going to support Ubuntu.
Again Centos runs this quite well.
So my question is why are you programmers who choose platforms choose the inferior brands?
As to hardware... DELL and APC are the 2 tops in thier own fields if not by name look at the volume sold.
Why load up a server room and have no shutdown communication from your UPS?
Why toss your hardware raid cards out and put an extra load on your OS?
Too bad Goautodial has been slacking in features. At least they do have Centos.
GoautoDial - 32 bit only, astguiclient always way behind the trunk version.
Redux - Suse
Yours - Ubuntu
Generic scratch installs - SVN trunk seems to give you a blank screen on admin.php.
Makes me want to go postal and slap you guys silly.
So I loaded up my 12th Server today with GoAutodial.... svn:Trunk works well with it.
perhaps you meant to post it on the Vicibox 3.1.12 release announcement along with your model number of your megaraid that it is not compatible with (so others will not purchase that specific hardware and attempt what has just bothered you ... save someone else's hair).
also, if someone else has the exact same model and found a "workaround" for it, they may post an answer for you!

But yes, if you feel so strongly about it then do your own ISO. I suspect Matt is not gonna go with Centos and that is it.

However, to be clear: Bill happens to be in agreement that not including CentOS is not a "Flaw". I like CentOS, don't get me wrong, but I'm of the opinion that anyone needing CentOS should be negotiating with Kumba to get whatever they want OR building a CentOS distro themselves. We have clients who want Ubuntu, so we'll be releasing that soon. But we have very few request for CentOS (of course, that could be because we refer CentOS people to Kumba ... but I personally started in the Linux world on CentOS and like it very much, even if their internal politics are hilarious sometimes).
the fact that you have some specific software that you like to use that is only compatible with a couple operating systems ... does not make CentOS "Better" (and I like it ... but that doesn't make it "better" either). Of course, I like Gentoo even more, but nobody cares about that! LOL

what happens is that one creates the .iso install, and during installation the "latest" install happens and works fine. but two weeks later, Redhat/CentOS makes a ... small change in an obscure package that borks a perl package deep inside Vicidial and now the system won't run right (unstable, bad voice, no dispo screen, something stupider each time and harder to track down).
So a static install (with the Option to upgrade) ... requires that everything be contained on the install DVD (not CD, not enough room). That being possible, of course, doesn't mean anyone has been paid to do it. Kumba did it, but of his own free will (and because it generates revenue, of course, and then only 32-bit).
Maybe we'll do it after the Ubuntu. Assuming Kumba doesn't dive in.
