I am a newbie to Asterisk and Linux. I am trying to install Asterisk 1.4.0 on CentOS 4.4. I am getting this error when compiling Asterisk “The configure script must be executed before running ‘make’”. I have tried to run ./configure and got this error “make:*** [makeopts] Error 1”. I cannot find the solution for the life of me to resolve this issue. I am unable to find any resource that might help me on this issue. Any guidance is greatly appreciated.
