Matt,

Versions installed prior to this one will need to be re-installed from
scratch. That was one of the major reasons for doing this release so
that an upgrade mechanism for asterisk could be made available. I would
recommend saving your config files in /etc/asterisk prior to doing the
upgrade, then restoring them after the update is complete and you have
run the setup script.

In the new version, Asterisk update requests can be initiated through
the use of the astupd.sh script in the /root directory

To enable echolink support, all you need is a valid echolink.conf file
in /etc/asterisk. There is a sample echolink.conf file in
/usr/src/configs/examples/echolink. This will need to be tweaked with
your callsign, node number, and location info.

The mailing lists are not searchable at this time, so unfortunately,
you'll have to manually slog through them.

Have you downloaded the ACID system administrators manual? This contains
the answers to a lot of system related questions, albeit it needs to be
updated with the echolink configuration and asterisk update procedures.
