Issue instlling G729 codec

Hi all, getting the following error when installing G729 digium codec on FreePBX 14.03.13

MBICPBX01*CLI> module load
Unable to load module
Command ‘module load’ failed.
[2018-10-27 05:37:03] WARNING[7050]: loader.c:583 load_dlopen: Error loading module ‘’: /usr/lib64/asterisk/modules/ undefined symbol: __ast_cli_register_multiple
[2018-10-27 05:37:03] WARNING[7050]: loader.c:1182 load_resource: Module ‘’ could not be loaded.

Any hints?

Is this a manual install?

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

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

Sounds like you’re missing devel packages.

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

What version of asterisk

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?

That’s freepbx. What version of asterisk


Just out of curiosity, what is the need for g729?
