[arm-allstar] hamvoip on DIAL?

hamvoip is a complete package married to the underlying OS Archlinux. The
OS is really immaterial as users have very little interaction with it in
Allstar operation. Archlinux uses a full set of systemd and many of the
Linux flavors are moving in that direction including Ubuntu albeit more
slowly. Most Linux commands are the same
though and if necessary I see no reason why you could not learn those that
are not. The hamvoip installation is effortless and no interaction beyond
what you now know with any other OS is needed. I suggest you try it. It has
many and I emphasize many enhancements over any other flavor of Allstar.

The history of using Archlinux goes back about four years when the
Beaglebone Black was introduced and many OS's were tried. It was the only
OS at the time that would run Allstar successfully. We stuck with it and I
am not sorry we did. It has proven to be a good choice.
