Thanks for the help. I still had to do some digging to get menuselect to work but you got me started.
Unfortunately, I’m not sure what all I installed but GTK and GTK2 (std & devel) were required.
At this point, I have not installed the database or Ruby modules. Once I get the basic working, I’ll come back for these.
I would recommend updating your system first until there are no more updates to install:
Rinse and repeat until you don’t see anything else. Note: you may need to reboot the server if a kernel update is included.
Once that’s done, running the following will get you a majority of what you will need to build Asterisk and most other tools you may need to set up:
yum -y install gcc gcc-c++ kernel-devel bison openssl-devel \
libtermcap-devel ncurses-devel doxygen curl-devel newt-devel \
mlocate libtool lynx tar wget nmap bzip2 mod_ssl crontabs vixie-cron \
speex speex-devel unixODBC unixODBC-devel libtool-ltdl \
libtool-ltdl-devel mysql-connector-odbc mysql mysql-devel \
mysql-server php-mysql php-mbstring php-mcrypt flex screen \
ruby ruby-devel ruby-docs ruby-ri ruby-irb ruby-rdoc subversion
You don’t necessarily need all of them, for example, no need for php or mysql if you’re not installing freepbx, no need for ruby if you’re not installing adhearsion, no need for unixODBC or mysql if you’re not setting up asterisk to use the database server, etc.[/quote]
