I’m trying to run ‘make menuselect’ on asterisk 18.104.22.168-rc1 but keep getting an error message stating that ncurses and/or newt are not installed, but they are.
This is just a lab vmware environment and I can’t figure out how to install vmtools without installing x, so I can’t copy/paste output here.
I installed zaptel for ztdummy (make clean, make, make install, and make config) with no errors. It may be important to note that I did get an error when executing a ‘make menuselect’ on zaptel indicating that I didn’t have ncurses installed. A quick ‘rpm -q ncurses ncurses-devel’ outputs: ncurses-5.4-15.el4 and ncurses-devel-5.4-15.e14.
Then I cd’d to the asterisk dir and executed make clean and .configure with no errors, but a ‘make menuselect’ ends with “No menuselect user interface found. Install ncurses, newt or GTK libraries to build one and re-rerun ‘make menuselect’.”
I’ve confirmed via ‘rpm -q ncurses ncurses-devel newt newt-devel’ that I have the following installed:
From locate, it looks like the above 4 are installed under /usr/lib so I added that to my path just in case, but I’m still getting the same error when trying to execute ‘make menuselect’ under the asterisk dir.
