Codec_opus module fails to load


#1

I"m getting the following error message trying in the log file when asterisk tries to load the codec_opus.so module:

[2019-02-07 16:52:32.018] VERBOSE[976] loader.c: Loading codec_opus.so.
[2019-02-07 16:52:32.019] WARNING[976] config_options.c: Cannot update type 'opus' in module 'codec_opus' because it has no existing documentation!
[2019-02-07 16:52:32.019] ERROR[976] codec_opus_config.c: Opus: failed to register sorcery object type 'opus'

I followed the instructions for installing it when building asterisk and see in the output of make install that it got installed:

Installing modules from codecs…
codec_opus: Remote package version 13.0_1.3.0 (263680)
codec_opus: Downloading http://downloads.digium.com/pub/telephony/codec_opus/asterisk-13.0/x86-64/codec_opus-13.0_1.3.0-x86_64.tar.gz to /tmp/tmp.IrZ3LfI3K7/codec_opus-13.0_1.3.0-x86_64.tar.gz
codec_opus: Installing.
codec_opus: Installed.

I can confirm that the documentation files are present:

/var/lib/asterisk/documentation

find thirdparty -type f|xargs ls -l
-rw-r–r-- 1 asterisk asterisk 3660 Dec 11 2017 thirdparty/codec_opus_config-en_US.xml
-rw-r–r-- 1 asterisk asterisk 23456 Dec 11 2017 thirdparty/codec_opus/LICENSE
-rw-r–r-- 1 asterisk asterisk 2498 Dec 11 2017 thirdparty/codec_opus/README

The workaround for me is to install codec_opus_config-en_US.xml into /var/lib/asterisk/documentation root directory, but I don’t understand why the file is not getting picked up from ‘/var/lib/asterisk/documentation/thirdparty/codec_opus_config-en_US.xml’

Is there something that my configuration is missing that registers the thirdparty subdir?

#2

Did you build asterisk from the release tarball or from git/gerrit?


#3

We built the from the asterisk-13.24.1.tar.gz tarball.

Is there a particular dependency I can check on or a flag I can add to configure or menuselect/menuselect that might influence the build to include the thirdparty subdirectory in the searchpath?

My top-level build process is essentially as follows:

contrib/scripts/install_prereq install
./bootstrap.sh
./configure  --libdir=/usr/lib64 --with-pjproject-bundled
make menuselect.makeopts
menuselect/menuselect --disable BUILD_NATIVE --enable codec_opus menuselect.makeopts
make
make DESTDIR=$RPM_BUILD_ROOT install
make DESTDIR=$RPM_BUILD_ROOT config

# install auto log rotate scripts
make DESTDIR=$RPM_BUILD_ROOT install-logrotate

Thanks.


#4

I’ve been trying it multiple ways and can’t get it to fail. I wonder if it’s related to DESTDIR. Let me try that.
Are these commands being run from a spec file? If so, can you try running them directly from the command line without DESTDIR? Can you share the spec file?


#5

I’d be happy to share our spec file, and I will try out shortly running the commands on a clean box directly later on without DESTDIR set.

For more context if it’s relevant, we are running this build in a Centos7 docker container. It’s been a very organic process to get it up and running as this is not our wheelhouse, but it’s worked for us to produce RPMs we use in our production systems.

Maybe I’m shooting myself in the foot somewhere in the files section of the spec file not picking up files I need?

the build is kicked off like so:

Thanks.


#6

I ran the above build instructions on a brand new centos7 instance (not a docker container) and then started up asterisk with my configuration and it worked as expected – codec_opus.so got loaded without complaining about not finding the documentation xml file.

Weird.

So, something is different between the rpm package I’m building up and the direct build from source. Nothing is obvious to me. I did a comparison of the before and after the install and the the files I install from the rpm are the same files that get installed from the direct build.

I’ll have to do more digging. Thanks for the tip.
