This video is an update 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. The system has now been running for over a month. The last reboot happened 3 weeks ago and its very stable.

Firstly let me apologies! 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 .

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.

Thanks so much for watching please rate and subscribe and if you are really nice I can do another additional video talking about the gear and trunks the PI-PBX connects to.

How you can install Fedora 25 on your Raspberry Pi

Read on about the 1st officially supported version of Fedora for the Pi.
In October 2016, the launch of Fedora 25 Beta was announced, in conjunction with initial support for the Raspberry Pi 2 and 3. The last “general availability” version of Fedora 25 was published 4 weeks later, and since then I have been experimenting with the many Fedora spins meant for the most recent versions of the Raspberry Pi.

This particular article is not as much a review of Fedora 25 on the Raspberry Pi 3 as a range of tricks, screenshots, as well as my own personal thoughts on the 1st officially supported version of Fedora for the Pi.
