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.

Fixed problems which were described by @jeremyvisser.

the systemd service type for asterisk needs to be changed to basic. notify type causes errors when executing the dialplan application System() with bash redirections, or dialplan variables.

in addition, executed System() calls can report success when unable to create a file on the system.

When I try to install the package, I get these errors:

chown: invalid user: ‘asterisk:asterisk’ chown: invalid user: ‘asterisk:asterisk’ chown: invalid user: ‘asterisk:asterisk’ chown: invalid user: ‘asterisk:asterisk’ chown: invalid user: ‘asterisk:asterisk’ error: command failed to execute correctly

I suspect this is because the post-install script is executed before the sysusers.d configuration is loaded.

Also, I noticed the post-remove script does a "killall -q asterisk". However, it's possible to get Asterisk to spawn subprocesses, so it would be better to do a "systemctl stop asterisk.service" in the post-remove script instead.

if you sideloaded opus-support from Digium, remember to update it too. Otherwise you'll get a segfault and won't be able to start asterisk again (what, for whatever reason doesn't happen with 16.0.0-rc3)...

FYI, starting from 16.0.0 Asterisk requires libedit.

systemd .service file can be used from the contrib folder now. Also, I'm not sure why termcap is needed.

Next, it seems, it won't work with pjproject v2.8, so it would be better to switch to bundled one.

Also, consider using sysusers feature to avoid creating users manually in the post-inst hook.

Since supports TLS, might be sensible to switch PKGBUILD source to "${pkgname}-${pkgver}.tar.gz".

That's an interesting idea @bberlin, if I'd manually compiled it at some point and left scraps on the system I could see that happening, but I've tested this on systems that didn't have asterisk and wouldn't have ever had libsrtp and am getting the same results.

Here is from my production Asterisk server:

❯❯❯ find /usr/lib -iname '*srtp*' -exec pacman -Qo {} \;
/usr/lib/libsrtp2.a is owned by libsrtp 1:2.1.0-1
/usr/lib/ is owned by libsrtp 1:2.1.0-1
/usr/lib/pkgconfig/libsrtp2.pc is owned by libsrtp 1:2.1.0-1
/usr/lib/ is owned by libsrtp 1:2.1.0-1
/usr/lib/asterisk/modules/ is owned by asterisk 15.2.0-1

I don't see anything amiss there do you?

bberlin commented on 2018-02-15 12:31

@caleb, it is possible to have both versions of libsrtp installed, the latest gets installed as libsrtp2. Check /usr/lib and see if you have both. You may already have the older one from something else.

@bberline Thanks for responding, but I'm more mystified than before. I have not tried with libsrtp0 because none of the errors I'm getting seem to be related to that at all, but I have libsrtp-1:2.1.0-1 (from the extra repo, I'm assuming this is also the one that doesn't work for you) and that does work for me. Also I've tried with and without bcg729.
