PBX in a Flash + skype

PBX in a flash will not upgrade to latest ASterisk.
I understand a little of why,
however to run Digium’s skype channel I need a newer version of Asterisk, however when I install it asterisk Bricks, not completely but it does not work…
Any one know why ?
I’ve tried…

if you login via ssh it says it is running in the Demon status window,
but under asterisk version running it does not load and phones cannot connect.
However you can connect on the command line using asterisk -r
I have changed the uncommented line in amportal.conf to ZAP2DHADICOMPAT=true

Now down graded again and commented out the line in amportal.conf

Just wondering what I can do…
