Install Asterisk

Hi Experts. Im newbie in asterisk. I worked with elastix a little and now i wanna work with asterisk.
I followed th installation asterisk in … stallation.
after done steps. it must be /etc/asterisk folder, but there isn’t this folder.
why? and how can i solved it? Do i should install it again?
I use linux sentos.
thanks. with regards. Mojtaba

If /etc/asterisk wasn’t made, then it’s likely that “make samples” wasn’t run.

what do you means?
I run it before. What do i do so that solved it?

You ran “make samples” as root and it didn’t create the /etc/asterisk folder? There must have been some output indicating the failure?
