How to install Asterisk 1.6.2 on Debian Lenny

 

This tutorial I am going to go through the basic installation of the most famous open source PBX Asterisk on the Debian Lenny linux distribution. I assume here that you have already a basic installation of Debian Lenny up and running.

 

Installing Dependencies:

# apt-get install linux-headers-`uname -r` libc6-dev zlib1g-dev bison openssl libssl-dev libasound2 libasound2-dev casino online libslang2-dev libnewt-dev libncurses5-dev binutils cpp-4.1 gcc-4.1 libstdc 6-4.1-dev g make libpq5 libapr1 libexpat1 libaprutil1 libxml2 fxload libusb-dev libiksemel-dev zlib-bin libc6-dev libbluetooth2-dev libxml2-dev
