Asterisk 22.214.171.124~dfsg~beta3-1 has been very unstable for me, mostly or
probably all due to (I think) #539681. My wife has issued an ultimatum
to me: either get things stable again or take Asterisk out of the
picture (the outside telephone line in my house is through a VoIP
provider, and Asterisk is connected to it).
126.96.36.199~dfsg-1 was stable for me but as soon as I upgraded to
188.8.131.52~dfsg~beta3-1 crashes started to happen. I experience several
crashes in chan_sip.so per day. To work around these crashes I had no
option but to enable safe_asterisk, which is something I never had to do
until now (and I've been running Debian asterisk for a few years now).
However, safe_asterisk just restarts Asterisk after a crash, but it does
not remove the annoyance of missing a call or not been able to transfer
I'm actually surprised that more people don't seem to have run into the
problem since 184.108.40.206~dfsg~beta3-1 really seems like a very bad release.
Anyway, I was wondering if you guys would happen to have asterisk
220.127.116.11~dfsg-1 binary packages available somewhere that I can use to
downgrade to while I wait for this bug to be fixed or for new (beta4?)
packages to become available. I've searched the Net left and right and
can't find these old packages. "testing" has 1.4 and I don't want to use
that since my config. has already migrated to 1.6. I'd also like to
avoid the trouble of building asterisk 18.104.22.168~dfsg-1 from sources, if
Thanks in advance.
P.S. Guys, I realize I'm running unstable and you are uploading these
beta packages to unstable, but people running unstable sometimes use
unstable for production-type things. What's the rationale for uploading
a beta of something as critical as a PBX to unstable; wouldn't it be
better to upload mission critical, non-stable, beta software to
