Meetme and Zapel?


I try to use the feature of Meetme on my CentOS v4.4 Linux machine
I am using Asterisk 1.4.4

I found that Meetme won’t work if I don’t have Zaptel l!?
Is that Correct ??

now, Zaptel doesn’t want to install
Got some error messages…

My error messages are the same as the one describe :
The asnwer is to install : AUTOCONF !!
But sorry, Which autoconf ? Not sure to undersand… :cry:
how will I get that ?

I read, that the possible reason is the library : libncurses5-dev missing
Should I get this library to get Meetme working ???
If so, that seems NOT to be an RPM. Do you know, which RPM installs this libncurses5-dev ?

Thanks in advance for your help


Try to use following url. They may help you in your requirement. … entos.html

about auto conf use the below url.



I am still in trouble with the Zaptel installation

Follwing the link,I have :

  • Checked all the package requested
  • installled M4 -> OK
  • Install Autoconf-2.60 -> Seems to be OK
    when I start to sintall Zaptel, I stil have :

[root@localhost autoconf-2.60]# ./configure

checking whether build environment is sane… yes
checking for gawk… gawk

So M$ is seen…

Autoconf installation :

[root@localhost autoconf-2.60]#

Now for ZAPTEL


configure: creating ./config.status
config.status: creating build_tools/menuselect-deps
config.status: creating makeopts
configure: *** Zaptel build successfully configured ***
[root@localhost zaptel]#


[root@localhost zaptel]# make

NB If you list the ‘.h’ file, there is no config.h file into ZAPTEL directory ! !??
[root@localhost zaptel]# ls *.h

Finally, I reinstall CentOS v 4.4 and that works fine…
Don’t know what was the problem
