Install Asterisk and start building custom telephony applications with AsteriskNOW. AsteriskNOW makes it easy to create custom telephony solutions by automatically installing the “plumbing.” It’s a complete Linux distribution with Asterisk, the DAHDI driver framework, and, the FreePBX administrative GUI. Much of the complexity of Asterisk and Linux is handled by the installer, the yum package management utility and the administrative GUI. With AsteriskNOW, application developers and integrators can concentrate on building solutions, not maintaining the plumbing.

Runs Linux

My gym runs linux!

I was working out this morning, and the IT guy was messing with the exercise bike next to me. I noticed the CentOs boot screen, and when I inquired further, I found out that all the equipment uses linux! Looks like our penguin buddy is trying to work off those holiday pounds.

Desktop App Pick

View post on is a way to select various operating system installers or utilities from one place within the BIOS without the need of having to go retrieve the media to run the tool. iPXE is used to provide a user friendly menu from within the BIOS that lets you easily choose the OS you want along with any specific types of versions or bootable flags.

You can remote attach the ISO to servers, set it up as a rescue option in Grub, or even set up your home network to boot to it by default so that it’s always available. – never flash a thumb drive again!

Bug that can leak crypto keys just fixed in widely used OpenSSH

View post on

The vulnerability resides only in the version end users use to connect to servers and not in versions used by servers. A maliciously configured server could exploit it to obtain the contents of the connecting computer’s memory, including the private encryption key used for SSH connections. The bug is the result of code that enables an experimental roaming feature in OpenSSH versions 5.4 to 7.1

Gnome Settings design update

Gnome Settings

A major feature of the latest settings designs is a rethink of the GNOME Settings “shell” (that is, the overall framework of the settings application). We want to move from the current model, that uses an icon grid and fixed window size, to one that uses a list sidebar for navigation, and has a resizeable window.
