Installing Asterisk 11 on CentOS 6 With Yum

This article describes how to install Asterisk 11 on CentOS 6 using Yum. It will be kept short in order to it to be easy to follow. I’m assuming you are using a fresh install of CentOS 6.4.

This is the second of a series of tutorials about Asterisk and CentOS, the last document was about installing CentOS for Asterisk.

First install dnsmasq package:

# yum install dnsmasq

 

Add the Asterisk repository:

# rpm -Uvh http://packages.asterisk.org/centos/6/current/i386/RPMS/asterisknow-version-3.0.0-1_centos6.noarch.rpm

Asterisk 1.8 and 1.4 SlackBuilds for Slackware Linux

I’ve been working with a set of SlackBuilds that might be helpful for people that want to install Asterisk 1.4/1.8 from source, but,
maintaining the possibility to easily (painlessly) update/upgrade/uninstall/patch/recompile Asterisk.

The Scripts are located here:
https://bitbucket.org/jespinal/slackbuilds/overview

You just need to do:

$ hg clone https://bitbucket.org/jespinal/slackbuilds

And look for instructions on README file.

These scripts might save you some time if you like to maintain your own packages and/or are planning to write an automated installation script
based on customized packages.

There are some pre-created configuration file that might be used as samples or drop in files for rapid deployment.

Addons for Asterisk 1.8

The addons for 1.8 are included in asterisk, look at the menu in “make menuselect” while compiling asterisk.

The reason for including it is because when we occasionally need to change the internal API, it’s difficult to remember which version of the addons package goes with each version of Asterisk. Additionally, changes to the addons packages rarely got released on time in the past. It makes it a lot easier just to include them directly in the main distribution, default disabled.
