Trixbox (formerly Asterisk@Home) is an open source distribution of Linux derived from the powerful CentOS operating system, which in turn is based on the Red Hat Enterprise Linux distro. It’s designed from the offset to be used for deploying a dedicated VoIP (Voice-over-Internet Protocol) system.

It’s distributed as an installable-only CD image

The Trixbox project is distributed as an installable-only CD image using the ISO file format. It is not a Live CD image, which means that it can only be installed on the disk drive of a computer, replacing any existing operating system.

Get a dedicated VoIP server in minutes

This will ensure that you get a dedicated VoIP server in minutes, designed for home or office use. It can be configured to handle a single or several phone lines, as well as several T1s for a million minute a month call center.

Boot menu à la CentOS Linux

When booting the operating system from the BIOS of a computer, using either a CD disc or a USB thumb drive, you’ll encounter a boot menu that is identical with the one of the CentOS Linux distribution. From there, you can start the installation, access advanced boot options, modify kernel settings and general options, as well as to enter a rescue mode.

Features a text-mode installer

Press the Enter key on the boot prompt to start the text-mode installer, which will require you to choose a keyboard layout, set up the location and timezone, as well as to enter a password for the root (system administrator) account. Eject the bootable medium and reboot the machine after all packages have been installed.

It’s based on Asterisk PBX

The best feature of Trixbox is that it’s based on Asterisk PBX, the world’s most popular free private branch exchange software. Besides, Asterisk, the operating system comes pre-loaded with the MySQL database server and many other useful tools that will transform any computer into a business quality phone system.

What's New in version
  • This is a roll-up release with a bunch of bug fixes and the latest version of all our packages. All trixbox users are recommended to upgrade to this release. This release resolves the problems with the package manager not working and some PSTN cards causing kernel panic when the system is rebooted. There are also a number of small GUI fixes and enhancements. I also added support for some of the new Realtek network chipsets that are not supported by CentOS 5.2. For existing systems please do a yum update from command line: 'yum update trixbox'; this will get the fixes to the GUI and the package manager. You can also update ZapTel to get the kernel panic fix.
