PSA: I've started hosting this and all its dependencies as prebuilt packages (x86_86 only) in my repository for those that want to install them using pacman without messing around with building from the AUR.

I post here but it's not because of the package upload here it's more the asterisk source related, if it can help someone .

checking for pkg-config... no
checking for LIBEDIT... no
checking for history_init in -ledit... no
configure: error: *** Please install the 'libedit' development package.
==> ERROR: A failure occurred in build().
error making: asterisk

But i install # git sudo binutils make gcc fakeroot wget patch libedit gettext

in reality without the package ' pkg-config ', the compilation fail and say

' Please install the 'libedit' development package '

Maybe i do something wrong, but the error message is misleading

@caleb afaik sadly they are not. The use the "DIGIUM END-USER LICENSE AGREEMENT ". I think this is also why they do not just bundle them with asterisk per default but download them every time you build it.

@hytrax If the extra files are GPL licensed we could add them to the package sources array, place them where they need to be as part of prepare(), then build.

After some searching around, I found: a) Asterisk support Opus upstream. b) when one uses the graphical menuconfig to select Opus support it the downloads some files necessary from Digium. If you download those files for a normal installation and put them in the appropriate places then Opus works (that is what I did) c) no menuselect.makeopts flag I could find made it download the files while building. At least, none that I found.

I might look into this more at a later point in time.

@hytrax Does upstream Asterisk support opus transcoding at all? If so there may be an extra option that needs to be set at build time. I'm happy to consider adding it if it doesn't incur more dependencies than the default. Let me know if you figure out what it is.

@caleb I have built it with the PKGBUILD and Opus passthrough support seems to be there but it cannot transcode from, say, G.722 to Opus. "core show translation" does not list it.

@hytrax The build in my user repository is compiled with the PKGBUILD exactly as posted here (most recently updated by me). There is a dependency on opus so I would have expected it to be found at build time and support to be built in. Do you get something different when you build this PKGBUILD yourself?

It's possible they changed something in recent releases and we need to explicitly enable support now, but I missed anything about that in the change logs.

Is it not compiled with opus enabled? If I use the package form the alerque repo the opus modules are missing and thus transcoding does not work.

@post-factum Thanks for the heads up. It's building now, if it looks like it runs alright I'll post the update shortly.

Thanks for the heads up @Thulinma, updated package coming shortly.
