Asterisk installation

Before we can start, make sure you have the following:
1. Computer with installed Linux OS (Fedora 7)
2. Asterisk's installation packages

1. Download the Asterisk Installation packages
asterisk 1.4.21.2
zaptel 1.4
Libpri 1.4.10.1
asterisk addons 1.4.8
(For Mp3 Support and MySql)

2. Obtain from a SVN server:

Do not forget that you need to have an installed SVN package. Use the following command:

# yum install subversion


2.1 Latest CVS Head Version

To get the latest head version use this command:

# svn checkout http://svn.digium.com/svn/asterisk/trunk asterisk
# svn checkout http://svn.digium.com/svn/zaptel/trunk zaptel
# svn checkout http://svn.digium.com/svn/libpri/trunk libpri


Check for the availability of some other packages:

rpm -q bison
rpm -q bison-devel
rpm -q ncurses
rpm -q ncurses-devel
rpm -q zlib
rpm -q zlib-devel
rpm -q openssl
rpm -q openssl-devel
rpm -q gnutls-devel
rpm -q gcc
rpm -q gcc-c++

If any of those packages are not installed install them by using yum

yum install bison
yum install bison-devel
yum install ncurses
yum install ncurses-devel
yum install zlib
yum install zlib-devel
yum install openssl
yum install openssl-devel
yum install gnutls-devel
yum install gcc
yum install gcc-c++



3. Compiling Asterisk on most Linux distributions

Extract the tar file and go to the folder where you extracted the files.
#cd /usr/src/asterisk


Important: Follow this installation order: libpri, zaptel, asterisk

-Installing libpri
#cd /usr/src/asterisk/libpri
#make clean
#make
#make install


-Installing zaptel
#cd /usr/src/asterisk/zaptel
#make clean

Note: If you are using kernel 2.6 enter the following command '#make linux26', before doing '#make install'.

-Installing asterisk

#cd /usr/src/asterisk/asterisk
#make clean

Note: If you want to use a mp3 files for music-on-hold enter the following command '#make mpg123', before doing '#make install'.

#make install

If this is your first installation perform 'make samples' to install sample configuration files.

Check your asterisk installation by stating your asterisk daemon by typing safe_asterisk and connect to its CLI (Command Line interface) by typing asterisk -gvvvvvvvvvvvr. Now type this command in the asterisk CLI "module reload".
