Hi python poole,
Thanks for your response. It's definitely a bit of a worry and i'm not sure it's reasonable to be pushing the linux version on the NCH site when it's clearly not ready for production. At the very least a clear warning about it's current status would have saved me a lot of time, I'm not very happy about that. Short of hearing back from NCH re a full production ready and tested version, I'll be organising a refund today. I should add that IVM for Linux doesn't even uninstall.
A note to *nux users, in lieu of a working and properly tested Axon, I compiled and deployed Asterisk on Centos 5.2 (RHEL) in half a day yesterday and it seems to be working very well, it's early days but I'll post a follow up to let you know my thoughts. It'll be soon as I'm already quite overdue for delivering a final/working solution.
