OS CentOS 6.0 x64
Asterisk 188.8.131.52 from source following instructions from wiki (used install_prereq from contrib for dependencies).
Using SIP only.
When starting service via “/etc/init.d/asterisk start” it outputs “Starting asterisk:” and brings me back to prompt.
Running “/sbin/service/asterisk status” it outputs “asterisk dead but subsys locked”. If I continue to check the status repeatedly the service will occasionally show up as running under different pids but immediately goes back to “asterisk dead but subsys locked”.
If I stop the service via “/sbin/service/asterisk stop” it outputs:
Stopping safe_asterisk: [ OK ]
Shutting down asterisk: [FAILED]
However, if I start asterisk via “asterisk -vvvc” it opens the CLI and I can login with a sip client from another computer. Checking the service also shows that it’s running and the pid doesn’t change.
I did run “make config” as well as “chkconfig asterisk on”.
I’ve been using AsteriskNOW but thought Asterisk might be more flexible and am giving it a shot.
Thanks for any help/suggestions or pointing me in the right direction.
