[Help] - FC5 Asterisk will not compile

Hi All,

Decided to rebuild my Asterisk server, Install Ferdora Core 5. Got the Zaptel drivers installed after a little research. I’m get this when trying to get Asterisk compiled.

make[2]: Leaving directory /usr/src/asterisk-1.4.0-beta3/menuselect' make[1]: Leaving directory/usr/src/asterisk-1.4.0-beta3/menuselect’
menuselect/menuselect --check-deps menuselect.makeopts
mxml: Character entity “” not terminated under parent !
Error parsing ‘menuselect-tree’!
make: *** [menuselect.makeopts] Error 255

Anyone have any ideas? My guess is I’m missing a package.




I am having the same problem, did you find out what was wrong?


Is this an issue with the make cmd??
try to install gcc gcc-c++

I’ve been running Asterisk on FC5… thats not my ususal “pain in the ###” type errors…

You must be missing a required component.

Of course I usually follow the “how too” guide as I’m installing Free PBX along side.

yum install gcc*
