I am struggling to find any decent information about the issues I have with Asterisk.
I have a TP-Link Archer C8 Router. I have put in a 500MB USB drive and split it into partitions using ext2 format.If I give a label of Optware, it will automount to the /opt location.
I followed as many guides as I could find on DD-WRT. I installed Entware to /opt, and then installed Asterisk.
I then started to follow the guide Hello World - Asterisk Project - Asterisk Project Wiki
When it comes to starting Asterisk - astrisk -cvvvvv
I then get 2 errors.
I am an experienced IT specialist, however, I have very little knowledge of routing, less of Linux and even less of Asterisk.
The errors I have are:
No ethernet interface found for seeding global EID. You will have to set it manually.

Unable to open Asterisk database ‘/opt/var/lib/asterisk/astdb.sqlite3’: unable to open database file
ASTdb initialization failed. ASTERISK EXITING!
Now, I have also taken a look, and found that the No Interface error, is looking for eth0. When I do an ifconfig to the router, I can see the eth0 interface, but the mac address it is tied to doesn’t appear in any of the dd-wrt pages, against WAN, LAN or Wireless.
I would really like to get this going.
I have seen a post on here recently that mentions Soho66 and IPv6. This is the same reason I want to go to asterisk, but, I have already decided I will leave Soho66 and get a sip trunk, and take my number with me.
Any help will be greatly appreciated. I have asked for help on DD-WRT and while they are trying to help, Asterisk is not something that they can help much with.
