Getting started with Asterisk. Error compilation!

Hi all,

I’m trying to install Asterisk from CVS. I followed all basic steps shown in several configuration howto’s:

I downloaded sources from CVS:

cd /usr/src/

cvs login (pass anoncvs)

cvs checkout -r v1-0 libpri asterisk asterisk-addons asterisk-sounds

(I’m using a LineJack card so I guess I don’t need Zaptel drivers)

cd …/libpri
make clean; make install
cd …/asterisk
make clean; make install

Now it crashes. I obtain this:


/usr/bin/ld: cannot find -lssl
colelct2: ld returned 1 exit status
make: *** [asterisk] Error 1

I’ve tried to remove -lssl option from last gcc compiling line ( gcc -g -o asterisk -Wl,-E io.o sched.o…) but nothing happens. Please I do need help

Can anybody tell me which is the easiest way to get Asterisk running properly??

Thanks in advance!

sounds like you need libssl development libraries.


Thanks mogorman, I’ll try this

Yeah it works, thank u very much!!!
