Sorry I can’t provide further input. You have a file on your system (or many files) that have UTF8 in the file names in the Asterisk sounds folder. Since Asterisk can’t reliably read UTF8 in file names these files won’t work well so you should remove these files.
Andrew, I went ahead and cleaned up /var/lib/asterisk/sounds/en/custom directory. Restarted the fwconsole. However, I still see the following message on the Dashboard (assume it may have something to do with my problem):
> The file format sln48 is not supported by Asterisk when it should be. Audio conversion quality will be limited to 16k instead of 48k
You also have a Raspberry Pi, which will unfortunately for you destroy a really important file for no apparent reason at exactly the time you don’t want it to happen, You will need to immediately boot to the image you made yesterday when it worked , If you don’t have that image, you need to start preparing for that need
Because the storage on your file system on your memory card is just basically unreliable. If a sound file breaks not a biggie if /usr/bin/asterisk or /boot/initrd* breaks then you will have a bigger problem.
Makes perfect sense! I will try to think of any way to remotely backup my installation to some safe place. This is my home installation with a few dongles and trunks. It was smoothly running for the last 8 months with a less then 10 reboots. But I read that Raspberry Pi can easily make my SD inoperable.
