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.

@nkukard I downloaded the snapshot for 18.1.0-2 as it hadn't hit the repositories at the time, and app_voicemail_imap is not checked in menuselect so the .so is still not being built

@nkukard I'm new to running Asterisk under Arch (coming from Ubuntu Server) so I may not understand how the Arch system works in this case. So at the risk of telling you stuff you already know... ;)

The 3 voice mail options if you run make menuselect manually create 3 different .so files. With your 18.1.0 package, only was created but the /etc/asterisk/modules.conf file told the server to load which didn't exist. I've always built Asterisk from source and used make menuselect to setup the system for my needs, so in this case I would check all 3 options to generate the 3 .so files and let the user decide what to load in modules.conf. If you check those settings do you need a build dependency?

@Astroturf, thanks for the link. Updated to use bundled version.

@brackenhill-mob, please see As far as I can see "imap" was never a build dependency, nor could of of worked due to the imap linking issue. Nonetheless, I've added imap as a build dep and fixed the linker options. Not sure I like it though. Willing to take improvement suggestions.

Agree with @Astroturf re pjproject (especially as it would not compile for me!).

So I downloaded v18.1 from your repository and you appear to have compiled the wrong app_voicemail - I've got when it should be

If you've renamed the .so file for some reason, then /etc/modules.conf is wrong.

What is the reason the bundled version of pjproject is not used? It is the recommended default since Asterisk 15. Asterisk crashes for me when using the pjproject dependency. It works just fine when removing --with-pjproject-bundled=no from PKGBUILD. The bundled version of pjproject also has a very specific config_site.h & a few extra patches (

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.

alerque commented on 2020-07-15 12:07

@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.

hytrax commented on 2020-07-15 09:24

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.

alerque commented on 2020-05-03 13:55

@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.
