Asterisknow on ubuntu 6.06 server


I have ubuntu 6.06 server running and I want to use Asterisk. Do I have to compile it from source (as suggested here … nux+Ubuntu) or is there a simpler way?

also, should I be looking at AsteriskNow instead of Asterisk?



I’d definitely do the compile approach.

If you choose to do the AsteriskNow method, you’d have to give up the Ubuntu OS. AsteriskNow is supposed to be an “all in one” method of loading Asterisk onto a PC. It includes r-Path as an operating system, and would wipe out your Ubuntu installation.

thanks! compiled it ok with some help from a friend.
