Asterisk Not Starting After YUM Update

Hi List,

it feels silly, but here I am.

My Asterisk box is useless, after running a long delayed yum update (CentOS box).


A few details on the box:

cat /etc/redhat-release CentOS release 5.10 (Final)

arch i686

uname -a Linux hermes 2.6.18-371.4.1.el5 #1 SMP Thu Jan 30 06:09:24 EST 2014 i686 athlon i386 GNU/Linux

asterisk -r Asterisk, Copyright (C) 1999 – 2010 Digium, Inc. and others.


Starting Asterisk very verbosely seems to load the dialplan, but at some point I get a segmentation fault. This is new to me!

    # standard asterisk command-line. No verbosity

    strace -eopen asterisk -U asterisk -c

    See which module was the one last loaded.

  • DAHDI might be the culprit. You may have had a better version from Asterisk than the “new” one that YUM got you.

    Check to see if YUM gave you a new DAHDI. Who’s your daddy now?

    You may want to rebuild the Asterisk DAHDI and install it over the DAHDI
    from your Linux distro.

  • If you got a new kernel as part of the upgrade, you will need to rebuild at least DAHDI and maybe Asterisk. Just cd to the folder with your DAHDI source code and

    # make install

    The `make` command does the magic for you, and only rebuilds what needs rebuilding. All should be fine after a reboot. If not, run the same command in your Asterisk source folder and reboot again.
