Discussion: Asterisk installation tips

Comments Filter


Just thought I'd put up a quick way for a newb to install asterisk on CentOS
Download the tar files from Asterisk.org and place them in /usr/src then run the following commands (with minor editing)

cd /usr/src
cd libpri-*
make clean
make install
cd ..

cd zaptel-*
make clean
make install
make config
cd ..

cd asterisk-1.*
make clean
make install
make samples
make config
cd ..

cd asterisk-addons-*
make clean
make install
make samples
make config
cd ..

cd asterisk-sounds-*
make install
cd ..

Compliling Asterisk statically

I have installed Asterisk on freeBSD and everything seems to be ok.
Now i must compile it statically... Does anyone know how edit the makefile to do it?

Problems with Proliant ML 350 G3 and RedHat 9

I've found a lot of problems installing Asterisk in ML 350 G3 box with RH 9.
1) RH 9 won't install unless you have a fixed diskette for booting. (Don't try to instal from original CDs)
2) When you try to start asterisk console it will hang up the entire server.

In the same box with Suse 9.1 no problems were detected.

Zaptel building

A little more insight .. there are numerous places in the Makefile where 'linux-2.4' is hardcoded. Adjust these as appropriate, in addition to the other suggestions made. Also, there is a commented section in the Makefile, be sure to uncomment this if you're on an SMP box.

ztdummy and non-intel boards

on the non-intel boards( ALI chipset for example), which was using usb-ohci module, module ztdummy will not work.
ztdummy require usb-uhci module.
use zaprtc from www.junghanns.net can solve this problem.
