[HELP] compilation issues on s390 / s390x hardware

Hi folks,

I ultimately want to get asterisk and festival compiled on a Linux s390 / s390x (mainframe) machine, but having compilation issues. I have tried both 2.4 and 2.6 kernel versions, and getting the exact same error and I think it’s something rather simple.

I’m trying the latest asterisk-, version. Here is the complilation error I get - any ideas would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

have you checked that the development file for ssl are avaiable on you system ? If you have a packaging system like dep or rpm avaiable try searching for a package named libssl-dev or so.

good luck :smiley:

Thanks for the suggestion on the ssl development package - that was the key.

Moving forward, and I think we are almost there, I see an issue that arch=s390 isn’t supported. This is the actual hardware that I’m trying to compile on (Linux on s390 / mainframe) and I wonder - is there a way around this to make asterisk to compile. I’m thinking that this has to work.
