asterisk pbx on debian-amd64
I am writing to inform that with a little tweaking I was able to
compile, start and exit asterisk pbx on Debian-amd64.
I am also writing to ask for any criticism or pointers of things I
have done wrong.
My hardware consists of the following:
Tyan Transport GX28
(uses Tyan S2881 mainboard)
2x Opteron 250
2x 512MB registered/ecc memory
4x 300 GB Seagate SATA drives
1x Digium TE410P quad span T1 card connected to 1 PRI and 1 Adtran
I started by installing the debian-31r0a-amd64-netinst.iso from:
I setup a /boot partition, and raid1 partitions for /,/tmp,/var,/usr,/
home and /srv.
after installing, I went ahead and recompiled the kernel for k8-smp,
mostly for practice, but also to get headers, etc, all in line.
then I apt-get installed cvs and downloaded zaptel, libpri and
asterisk source. I also wget installed zlib-1.2.1 source, though
later I found I needed to come back and run ./configure -s in the
directory to eliminate asterisk compile errors.
Zaptel and libpri compiled without error. Unfortunately, mpg123 will
not seem to compile. I plan to follow some instructions at voip-
info.org to use sox and play .raw audio files, or try asterisk's
native mp3 player from asterisk add-ons.
Asterisk initially coughed at zlib until I recompiled as per above.
It also did not like compiling with default gcc-3.3 (did not
recognize -march=k8), so I apt-get installed gcc-3.4, relinked gcc
in /usr/bin, and this solved the problem. Asterisk then compiled and
I was able to start it and use the CLI.
Now I am pretty new to Debian, so if anyone has any suggestions or is
pulling their hair out b/c I am doing things wrong, please tell me.
If there is interest I will be adding information as I learn things
to the voip-info.org tiki:
I emailed the list today just to let others know it can be done and
that these steps might need to be taken, along with looking for
