Figured out the Asterisk Problem

Even after loading Asterisk@Home, I was still having a problem. Turned out to be a compilation problem with Asterisk that was causing the problem.

The system I am using is an VIA EPIA Min-ITX motherboard. The OS seems to think it’s a i686, but it’s really a i586. This apparently causes Asterisk to crash with this motherboard. A change in the makefile and a recompile later, Asterisk is starting again.
