Asterisk on FreeBSD ?

    I found a spare 1.4 GHz laptop with 20GB of disk which should be
    adequate to run Asterisk.

    Next question: how well does Asterisk work under FreeBSD? I realize
    that Asterisk development all happens on Linux, but all my other
    machines run FreeBSD, so if it works well enough, I'd rather not have
    one Linux box to support. Any advice?

  3. The core Asterisk itself works just fine on FreeBSD.

    Unfortunatly, the driver ports for driving the T1 cards and such have
    some issues under FreeBSD. I found the driver code drifts the clock on
    the T1 and eventually the switch takes down the port (using it in PRI
    mode) from too many errors. Not a problem with the same
    box/interface/PRI running in linux. I also had some issues with the FXO
    card I had as well.

  4. I think it does, as it does run on NetBSD, too.
