Asterisk not Starting

Hello everyone,

I’m a newbie trying to get started with asterisk. I have downloaded zaptel and asterisk using wget, unpacked them using tar, carried out make clear, make, and make install on them, and I now typed asterisk -g to see if it works. The respone I get is

bash: asterisk: command not found

When I list the contents of my directory I see asterisk as one of the items in green.

Could anyone help a newbie out please. What could be the problem and how can I solve it?


Hi go to asterisk source dir
run make config
service asterisk start
chkconfig asterisk on

then connect to asterisk using
asterisk -vvvr
