Gentoo-2006.0


#1

Hello:

Does someone try to istall Asterisk and work great in Gentoo or latest Gentoo-2006.0
Could please post the whole details as in from zero to working system.

Because i read a lot and found out that Librpi and Zaptel can not be installed in Gentoo
Only Asterisk,

How true is this?

I believed and prove in Debian that Zaptel and asterisk looking for Libri. while Asterisk will look for Zaptel during installation.

Please Help

Asterisk, libpri and zaptel work perfectly on gentoo.

All my deployments are on gentoo, over 60 production deployments so far and non have given me problems.

My only advise is stick to more mature gentoo installs like 2005.1

if you want more help contact me via pm ill be happy to help.

I have 4 systems running gentoo 2006.0 with asterisk 1.2.6, the best way to do it is not to use the ebuilds. Just install from source. It compiles clean and works first try every time. Jus tmake sure to install libpri, then zaptel, the asterisk.

Asterisk ebuild has USE for that :

[code] - - bri : Enable ISDN BRI support (bristuff)

    • pri : Enables pri support (>=asterisk-1.0.1)
    • zaptel : Enables zaptel support (>=asterisk-1.0.1)[/code]

No need to install libs separately, portage should do it.
