Welcome to Allstarlink. Since no one has responded to your questions I will do my best to
Anyone is free to jump in an add to my response. Se my comments to your questions.
I am new to AllStarLink.
It looks like there is not much documentation for a beginner.
Have you looked at the wiki? https://wiki.allstarlink.org Lots of good information there.
After I loaded the Asterisk image, I did what I always do when I load a
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get upgrade
it took forever to get all the updates to my Raspberry Pi.
Yes, and that is fine. It is updating any installed software to the latest version, but not
app_rpt / Asterisk / DAHDI
Now I am wondering if that was the right thing to do.
Yes, it was!
I peaked over to
the development page and saw there were no updates to the code since
November. And not much before that in 2018 and 2017. Should I not update
As you can see, not much has been done since 2017/2018.
There are a few folks working quietly and slowly behind the scenes.
Since app_rpt is an open source we can always use more folks to help out and contribute.
Especially if you know how!
Is there any development going on?
Yes, more details to come sooner than later!
Will it only work on the old version of Raspbian and not the newest
versions and files?
This has been tested however we have chosen to stay with a stable LTS kernel at this time.
Is there a wish list of things to fix/upgrade?
Yes and in progress.
Is anyone working to make it run on a Raspberry Pi 4?
The current image should run on a Pi4.
Am I asking the wrong questions? Nope, never. I hope this information helps.
