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 .
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.

The right way to deploy Fedora 25 on your Raspberry Pi

Please read on about the very first officially supported release of Fedora for the Pi.
In October 2016, the introduction of Fedora 25 Beta was announced, together with initial support for the Raspberry Pi 2 and 3. The final “general availability” version of Fedora 25 was published 4 weeks later, and since then I have been playing around with the an assortment of Fedora spins out there for the latest 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 suggestions, screenshots, and my personal thoughts on the very first officially supported version of Fedora for the Pi.
