Is this a manual install?


(Michael Brannelly) #3

wht do you mean exactly? im installing the codec as per the instructions from digium. the instance is a freepbx install


(Tom Ray) #4

Did you install via the ISO or follow the instructions to install manually?

Sounds like you’re missing devel packages.


(Michael Brannelly) #5

ISO install

If you are following the Digium txt file included with the download, it may have assumed that you are installing on a 32 bit system, and the so file got copied to the wrong directory.

Ive copied it to the correct lib64.already

From the logs I posted you can se that it is having issues with the contents of the file, indicating that it was able to locate it.

I just downloaded the latest asterisk freepbx distro, created a vm and installed it. I then tried to install the codec on that machine, same outcome. Hs anyone installed this on freepbx?


(Andrew Nagy) #12

That’s freepbx. What version of asterisk


(Michael Brannelly) #13

13.22.0
