heads up to all-

this package now builds cleanly. there's some very small issues remaining, but Mike Jerrit at upstream (Freeswitch) was a HUGE help and you should offer to buy him a beer.

(@opencode- i presume that was you that emailed me- thanks! got a user not found error when trying to re:, but will create a separate pkg shortly that should be a lot more ALARM-friendly.)

does ALARM have a separate AUR?

if not, i think i could actually include some logic in the PKGBUILD to use a slimmer build if the architecture is detected as ARM. i don't have an ARM to test on, but can you get me the output of (separately):

uname -i
uname -m
uname -p

would that be acceptable or would you want like, a freeswitch-minimal or freeswitch-lite or something? i hestitate to make a separate package as that makes it almost seem like there's a separate upstream project for it.

you actually have some pretty great timing, as well- i have an appointment sometime this week to work with upstream directly to sort out the issues with the build process (they presume it's a compiler bug).

I use FreeSWITCH on Arch Linux ARM Raspberry Pi Zero and wanted a tinier base to build from, so I ended up basically re-writing packages for Arch Linux. There are a couple more things I'd like to do before calling it final for general usage, in particular: a) adding all of the default modules in modules.conf rather than the subset I currently have; b) fixing the systemd .service file to start at boot correctly (though this appears broken upstream as well); and c) adding a separate package freeswitch-demo-config to allow installing the provided config files (I use my own config files written from scratch).

If others are interested, I've put the current version here:

Along with another package for sounds:

@sanerb, let me know if you'd be interested in using these in place of the current ones

with tagged 1.6.8 release (same occurs on 1.6.9):

./configure: line 19628: syntax error near unexpected token `fi'
./configure: line 19628: `fi'
make: *** [Makefile:1433: config.status] Error 2
==> ERROR: A failure occurred in build().

@sysfu did you build any modules or just the base application?

i'm wondering if one of the modules is causing issue, but i doubt it since they build separately.

the 1.7.0 branch seems to fare better, i think, as freeswitch-git builds last i checked.. but that isn't stable yet

I was able to build the 1.6.8 tagged release via git source on OpenBSD 5.9, albeit with some lua errors, have you tried that one?

sanerb commented on 2016-06-03 19:23

honestly, i think they tagged a bad commit. freeswitch-git should build fine. i need to wait for a new release to switch to that tag

jro commented on 2016-05-24 14:48

Just got the same compiler error. It is a pity that apparently nobody has fixed it yet.

sysfu commented on 2016-05-24 02:35

Tried building again today, failed with this error:

./configure: line 19628: syntax error near unexpected token `fi'
./configure: line 19628: `fi'
Makefile:1433: recipe for target 'config.status' failed
make: *** [config.status] Error 2
==> ERROR: A failure occurred in build().
The build failed.

I'll try to comment out what appears to be a superflous `fi' on line 19628 in the configure script and manually run the make command in src/freeswitch.

not yet, unfortunately- i'll see what i can do this weekend. it's such a complicated build process, unfortunately.

@sanerb: did you have a chance to clean up the PKGBUILDs? does this currently build?
