Welcome to the AllStarLink Wiki

AllStarLink is a world wide network of Amateur Radio repeaters, remote base stations, and hot spots accessible to each other via the Internet and/or private IP networks.

AllStar software runs on a dedicated Linux computer (including the Raspberry Pi) that you host at your home, radio site, clubhouse, school, university, workplace, or computer center.

AllStar is based on the open source Asterisk PBX and is released under the GNU GPL and is free for anyone to use.

The core of AllStar and AllStarLink is the powerful app_rpt application and associated modules that load into the Asterisk PBX system.

Note: The ASL 1.01 installer is a Network installer and still uses the site to download the .deb install files.

ASL Beta Images

The distribution has been updated to Debian 10 (buster) to allow users to use the latest apt packages, kernels, and boot on a Raspberry Pi 2, 3, or 4. The core Asterisk AllStarLink version has also been updated to 2.0.0-beta, and has several updates and fixes. Beta images should only be used by advanced users. Use at your own risk.

ASL 2 Beta Changelog

Have fun!

Install from ASL Repository

As an alternative to installing the ASL image, you can install Debian 10 (11 and 12 soon, I hope) yourself and then add the ASL repo. This is the recommended procedure to install on a VM where a .iso cannot be uploaded. The DAHDI package can be finicky with newer kernels and this won't work if the Linux headers don't match the Linux kernel.

Install the ASL Repository

As root (or with sudo) run the following commands to install the ASL repo. Overwrite the keyring file if prompted.

apt update
apt install curl gpg

cd /tmp
chmod +x install-allstarlink-repository

Install ASL

Next as root (or with sudo) run the following commands to install ASL.

apt -y install linux-headers-$(uname -r)
apt -y install asl-asterisk
apt -y install allstar-helpers
apt -y install asl-dahdi-linux
apt -y install asl-update-node-list

If you are installing on a Raspberry Pi add:

apt -y install asl-raspberrypi-kernel
apt -y install asl-raspberrypi-kernel-headers
