Old Asterisk version installation troubles

Team

I am trying to install an older version of Asterisk v1.2.40 on CentOS 6.10 in the following order (as suggested by a lot of sources):

1- https://downloads.asterisk.org/pub/telephony/asterisk/releases/asterisk-1.2.40.tar.gz
2- tar xfvz asterisk-1.2.40.tar.gz
3- cd asterisk-1.2.40
4- ./configure
5- make
6- make install
7- make samples

Unfortunately, I can’t find the file ./configure file (step 4) in the asterisk folder. I noticed, however, the file is actually located in a subfolder [,/editline/configure].
I tried running such a file but all make calls fail afterward with the message:
[make: *** No targets specified and no makefile found.]

Any suggestion will be appreciated!

Thanks

Asterisk 1.2 doesn’t have a configure script.

It appears that is the case. Any ideas or HowTo documentation available?

Something maybe possibly exists somewhere? I have no idea, you’re asking in regards to a version of Asterisk from years upon years upon years ago. That knowledge is out of my brain. May not even build on that version of CentOS, either.

You should re-extract then follow the instructions in README.

You may find you need device drivers. I think it reasonable to assume that the supported ones won’t work on CentOS 6. You may find it doesn’t work well, even for VoIP, without the zaptel driver.

PS Please note there is no team.
