it feels silly, but here I am.
My Asterisk box is useless, after running a long delayed yum update (CentOS box).
A few details on the box:
cat /etc/redhat-release CentOS release 5.10 (Final)
uname -a Linux hermes 2.6.18-371.4.1.el5 #1 SMP Thu Jan 30 06:09:24 EST 2014 i686 athlon i386 GNU/Linux
asterisk -r Asterisk 188.8.131.52, Copyright (C) 1999 – 2010 Digium, Inc. and others.
Starting Asterisk very verbosely seems to load the dialplan, but at some point I get a segmentation fault. This is new to me!
