I’m completely new to Asterisk and fairly new to Linux. After hearing so much about this free PBX, I couldn’t wait to get going so I’ve bought a PC especially for this purpose, installed Mandriva 2006 and am in the process of installing Asterisk itself.
I’ve downloaded the * book, all the softwate I need and have started configuring. Unfortunately, it all went fairly smoothly until I tried to install the Asterisk software. The book states that I would need a bunch of extra software in order to install Asterisk so I downloaded and installed all of them (GCC version 4.0.1, Bison, ncurses, OpenSSL). All of these went in ok using RPMs but as there is no RPM for *, tried the source route. Here’s where I ran into trouble. Initially, I got a few strange errors “Internal compiler error: segmentation fault”. After a couple more attempts at running the make command in succession (it seemed to get further after every attempt), I got to a point where the following error persisted and I can’t get any further with the installation (/usr/bin/ld: cannot find -lssd). I think this suggests that SSL is not present but I absolutely know it is because I installed it.
What have I done wrong? I don’t think I’ve missed any steps.
Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
