Up a level


Upgrading SARK is simple and straightforward, it uses the regular Debian apt-get installer. Usually you should upgrade both sail and sailhpe to the latest versions on the download site. You can tell which release of sail you have from the Globals panel in your SARK browser.

To upgrade to the latest release simply use apt-get.

apt-get update
apt-get install sail
apt-get install sailhpe

Once done it is good idea to issue a commit at the SARK browser.

Manually upgrading using dpkg

If you wish, you can use dpkg to manually upgrade your SARK/SAIL system or to install a specific release. You can find the actual software packages HERE. There are two packages which together make up the SARK platform. They are sail, which is the SARK/SAIL mainline, and sailhpe which is the architecture dependent switching module. The modules for sail can be found in the noarch folder. The sailhpe switching module is compiled for each of the three Debian architectures we support; i386, armel (SARK200) and armhf (RaspberryPi). For the SARK200 you should download sailhpe from the armel folder.

To find the sail release installed on your box you can use dpkg tell you

dpkg -l | grep sail
ii  sail                            4.0.0-126                          all          SARK  Asterisk Integration Layer (SAIL) - A fast, lightweight switch for Asterisk
ii  sailhpe                         4.0.0-37                           armel        SARK  Asterisk Integration Layer (SAIL) - HPE

There is a folder for software upgrades on the SARK200 at /home/software. So grab the package you wish to install from the sailpbx site like this

cd /home/software

Now you can install the package with dpkg as follows

dpkg -i sail_4.0.0-84_all.deb

Once again, issue a commit once you've done.
