Compile Asterisk11.1 For I586 VIA C3 CPU

I’ve compiled asterisk 11.1 for my MiniITX card with VIA C3 Samuel2
800MHz CPU. A small box to play with PBX at home.

I get this error when I start asterisk:

root@pbx01:/usr/src/asterisk-11.1.0# /etc/init.d/asterisk start Illegal instruction Starting Asterisk PBX: asteriskIllegal instruction

I compiled it on debian 6.0.6 with this options:
./configure –build=i386-pc-linux-gnu –host=i386-pc-linux-gnu \
–with-iksemel=/usr/src/iksemel-1.4 –with-pri=/usr/src/libpri-1.4.14 \
–with-dahdi=’/usr/src/dahdi-linux-complete-2.6.1+2.6.1′ –libdir=/usr/lib

I was able last days to compile asterisk 1.8 and it did work perfectly…. except with Gtalk, and this is why I have to compile v11.1
I have gone through these steps (v1.8):

1) ./configure –with-iksemel=/usr/src/iksemel-1.4
2) in Makefile change : PROC=i586 (instead of i686)

3) in makeopts change:
#BUILD_PLATFORM=i686-pc-linux-gnu BUILD_PLATFORM=i586-pc-linux-gnu
#HOST_PLATFORM=i686-pc-linux-gnu HOST_PLATFORM=i586-pc-linux-gnu

4) # make && make install

But I can’t do the same changes for asterisk 11.1 because the makefiles haven’t the same content as for asterisk v1.8

I need asterisk 11.1 to be able to receive and make calls to gtalk accounts

Do you have any idea where is the problem ?

    Try this… In menuselect, uncheck BUILD_NATIVE under Compiler Flags and recompile.
