[RESOLVED] Installing Asterisk With Yum

Postby jmh033089 » 2012/02/06 03:41:01

First forgive me just got in to Linux, I'm trying to install Asterisk on a VM running CentOS 6.

This is what I need to do:
The first step is to add the Asterisk yum repositories to your CentOS or RedHat system. This is done by creating an entry in the yum configuration directory (/etc/yum.repos.d by default).

Use the text editor of your choice to create a new file named "centos-asterisk.repo" in the "/etc/yum.repos.d" folder. Add the following text to the file:

[asterisk-tested]
name=CentOS-$releasever - Asterisk - Tested
baseurl=http://packages.asterisk.org/centos/$releasever/tested/$basearch/
enabled=0
gpgcheck=0
#gpgkey=http://packages.asterisk.org/RPM-GPG-KEY-Digium

[asterisk-current]
name=CentOS-$releasever - Asterisk - Current
baseurl=http://packages.asterisk.org/centos/$releasever/current/$basearch/
enabled=1
gpgcheck=0
#gpgkey=http://packages.asterisk.org/RPM-GPG-KEY-Digium
Save the new file and create another named "centos-digium.repo" and insert the following text:

[digium-tested]
name=CentOS-$releasever - Digium - Tested
baseurl=http://packages.digium.com/centos/$releasever/tested/$basearch/
enabled=0
gpgcheck=0
#gpgkey=http://packages.digium.com/RPM-GPG-KEY-Digium

[digium-current]
name=CentOS-$releasever - Digium - Current
baseurl=http://packages.digium.com/centos/$releasever/current/$basearch/
enabled=1
gpgcheck=0
#gpgkey=http://packages.digium.com/RPM-GPG-KEY-Digium
At this point your system has been updated to use the Asterisk and Digium repositories in addition to the base CentOS repositories. You are now ready to install Asterisk. To start the installation, execute the following at the Linux command line:

[root@localhost~]# yum install asterisk16 asterisk16-configs asterisk16-voicemail dahdi-linux
dahdi-tools libpri
The system will respond with something like:

[root@localhost yum.repos.d]# yum install asterisk16

[root@localhost yum.repos.d]#
Congratulations, you now have a CentOS or RedHat system with a complete version of Asterisk installed. Test out your new install by starting Asterisk:

[root@localhost yum.repos.d]# asterisk -vvvgci



The only issue is that when I try to add the two new files to /etc/yum.repos.d it tells me I don't have access read only, I have added my user to the root group and restart but still no luck anyone what I'm doing wrong?

You actually need to be root to be able to edit files in /etc/yum.repos.d

I have added my user to the root group, and it still tells me I can't have access...

Wrong approach. Do not try to make your user root, rather become root as required.

It also appears you are running CentOS-5 and not 6.

If more help is needed then please provide more information about your system by running "./getinfo.sh" and showing us the output file.

You installed asterisk for centos5, not centos6.
Clean it up and start over..

If that is the case, then $releasever in the .repo files you showed should have evaluated to 6. Something does not compute.

You failed to follow the link to How to provide information about your system, read, and understand it.

P.S. I see you never got an official welcome. Welcome to the CentOS fora. Please see the recommended reading for new users linked in my signature.

thank you for the welcome, I'm sorry I have created the .bs and ran it in terminal but it just closes.

note:I'm sorry I have been a windows person for over 10 years so its hard to understand a lot of this...

Sounds like an empty file. Try
Code: Select all
cat getinfo.sh
and you should see the same content as the link from the post showed. If it is empty try the copy/paste operation again.
