This video is a part of a DIY series where I figure out if it is possible to turn a Raspberry PI into a FreePBX phone server! It worked and was relatively easy for tech head with little Linux experience.

Firstly let me apologies! A number of times in the install and explanation I reference the 64gb SD card as a 64mb card! Fail on my part and please don’t pick me up on it all the time! I know I’m a numpty! All the filming was done on my Iphone! I didn’t want to spend hours editing this! But I do have some more professional looking vids on my channel www.youtube.com/whackstar .
I used the following sources to help build the server. I want to say thank you to the guys at Raspberry PI it is truly a great little machine and your site was very helpful. I also want to say thanks to the guys at Raspberry Pi to Asterisk. Your image worked amazingly well! I will be sending you a thank you in the form of a paypal donation sometime soon.

How to mount Fedora 25 on your Raspberry Pi

Read on about the 1st officially supported release of Fedora for the Pi.
In Oct . 2016, the launch of Fedora 25 Beta was announced, coupled with initial support for the Raspberry Pi 2 and 3. The last “general availability” version of Fedora 25 was published a month later, and since that time I have been experimenting with the many various Fedora spins designed for the most up-to-date versions of the Raspberry Pi.

This article is not as much a review of Fedora 25 on the Raspberry Pi 3 as a group of tips, screenshots, along with my own personal thoughts on the 1st officially supported version of Fedora for the Pi.
