Asterisk on FreeBSD ?

I found a spare 1.4 GHz laptop with 20GB of disk which should be adequate to run Asterisk.

Next question: how well does Asterisk work under FreeBSD? I realize that Asterisk development all happens on Linux, but all my other machines run FreeBSD, so if it works well enough, I'd rather not have one Linux box to support. Any advice?

R's, John

The core Asterisk itself works just fine on FreeBSD.

Unfortunatly, the driver ports for driving the T1 cards and such have some issues under FreeBSD. I found the driver code drifts the clock on the T1 and eventually the switch takes down the port (using it in PRI mode) from too many errors. Not a problem with the same box/interface/PRI running in linux. I also had some issues with the FXO card I had as well.

I think it does, as it does run on NetBSD, too.
