I have installed Asterisk on a FreeBSD-6.0 server via ports and it went well. It appears to have installed all the dependencies and I want to give it a try. No real equipment like IP phones just yet but I wanted to at least set it up and see what can be done with just a simple analog phone and a regular BellSouth connection with a ComCast cable modem.
Ran into a few problems. I installed Asterisk-1.2.4 but it did not place the /etc/asterisk folder for me. So I unpacked the tarball and tried to do a make samples command but that crashed like this:
“Makefile”, line 28: Missing dependency operator
"Makefile", line 31: Need an operator
"Makefile", line 34: Need an operator
Error expanding embedded variable.
So I then tried a simple make but got the same thing.
Any advice out there on what I should try next?
