I’ve installed and uninstalled and installed asterisk several times. I’ve done this process on other distributions and haven’t had a problem. Basically I do a make:make install on zaptel, librpri, asterisk-22.214.171.124, asterisk-add-ons, asterisk-music in that order. Everything seems to work fine, I can log on with an IAX device and everything… But when I try to start up the CLI (asterisk -r), I get this error msg… “Unable to connect to remote asterisk (does /var/run/asterisk.ctl exist?)”
I go to /var/run and I’m looking right at asterisk.ctl. I tried modifying permissions, and it hasn’t worked. I looked around in asterisk.conf but I don’t know which modification would change things, it all seems fine… Any ideas on what I can do???
