so there's your problem, if you check my makefile, you'll see the 1.4 dependency, i only made this for 1.4 because 1.6 wasn't very stable on openwrt by that time

I don't think stability is an issue here. As of this writing, v1.6 is well maintained by Zandbelt and is also pretty stable.

Re: Asterisk - GUI

yeah i know, "as of this writing" but like i mentioned, i started the asterisk gui packaging in january or something where it had some bugs i "could not live with"

BTW, i'm still working on asterisk-gui openwrt to support 1.6.x->1.8.x

The ticket has been updated smile check it plz

Re: Asterisk - GUI

Have you tested the update with asterisk-1.8.x?

Mazi

Re: Asterisk - GUI

okay i guess i have to make 3 packages, 1 for ast 14 another for 16 and another for 18,

nope i haven't tried asterisk 1.8 yet, i built it to be compliant with backfire, not the "unstable" version, i'll see what i can do

R U saying the configuration files, i.e. /etc/asterisk/manager.conf and /etc/asterisk/http.conf, for each asterisk version are different?

Mazi

Re: Asterisk - GUI

nope, but the dependencies are, for example, for asterisk14 there was already a chan local and an app_exec or app_system included, for asterisk16 i had to had those dependencies, for asterisk 1.8 i have to check , still building trunk

Re: Asterisk - GUI

and another one, asterisk14 used /usr/lib/asterisk for the static http files etc, asterisk16 uses /var/lib/asterisk so i had to include a init script to create the /var/lib and symlink /usr/lib/asterisk to /var/lib/asterisk

Re: Asterisk - GUI

when i have some news about asterisk 1.8 i'll post..

Re: Asterisk - GUI

Thanks.

Re: Asterisk - GUI

The patches have been uploaded to OpenWRT through this ticket #8132, but it hasn't been committed yet. It looks like asterisk-1.8.x complation doesn't include the sound files. So, don't enable the voicemail and sound packages unless you don't mind with the compilation errors.

Re: Asterisk - GUI

Nice nice, they could have made another package instead of replacing 1.6 completely but fine by me smile , okay try this, get my package from the ticket, edit the makefile and change everything that says asterisk16 to asterisk18, it should work, if it doesn't, please post

That's what I had done, i.e. applied the patches, recompiled, installed, and asterisk-gui won't work. Can you try and confirm the asterisk-gui works with asterisk-1.8.x?

Mazi

Re: Asterisk - GUI

okay, i'll try it as soon as i can

Re: Asterisk - GUI

Hello everyone,

Two questions:
1) what Asterisk version is recommended to install on OpenWrt 10.03.1-RC3 (Backfire)?
I don't need latest-"the best", I need stable/working

2) what are mimimum hardware reuqirements?
Is router with 8MB flash ok, or I need more flash space, and/or use external storage via USB?

I currently consider TP-Link WR1043MB (8MB flash) as a platform for my Asterisk at home.

Your comments would be highly appreciated.

If I were you and I already have a NAT/Firewall (WiFi) router, I won't waste more to buy another NAT/Firewall (WiFi) router just to host my PBX System. Instead, I will go for an inexpensive Seagate DocStar to host my PBX System(s). The reason is simply the device is based on a Marvell chipset clocked @1.2GHz with 128MB/256MB RAM/NAND, an RJ45 (10/100/1000Mbps) port, and 4 USB2 ports. This device can easily handle FreeSWITCH that most NAT/Firewall routers (clocked @400MHz) will just bog down. If you do a Google search, you may find some places to offer an inexpensive Seagate DocStar for as little as US$20 or even less.

For further information on how to install OpenWRT on an inexpensive Seagate DocStar, have a look here. Also, you may want to read posts on this discussion thread or another discussion thread.
