Thank you for your help! using root user did let it install, after installing the dashboard was clean and appeared error free, but lots of features were not working at all including pjsip, looking in the log reveals Errors talking about LOTS of different missing .conf files. I would venture a guess that about half the .conf files were missing.
For now I am just going to use a Patch file and apply it to an old Debian install. I really wanted to get this going for Ubuntu, but I just don’t have any more free time.
The other option is I could just use the sample config files, that install appears to be working completely.
Maybe I could take the time to learn about the config files, then I could alter the sample files to address any concerns.
Also I did alter the guide to remove the ‘make samples’ command, instead it just copies the .conf files, which does a little bit less stuff than ‘make samples’ would normally do, and I added a disclaimer to the top of the page.
