Mac port packages are available for Asterisk in mac
As a first step, do a port update to get all new packages:
sudo port install asterisk
[This is a long process, it will start installing many dependancy packages]
Possible errors you can see:
1) Image error: /opt/local/bin/a2p is being used by the active perl5.8 port. Please deactivate this port first, or use ‘port -f activate perl5′ to force the activation.
Solution: Check all perl version installed using the given command:
sudo port installed | grep perl
Uninstall old perl version will solve this problem.
eg: port uninstall perl5 @5.8.9_0
sudo port uninstall perl5.8 @5.8.9_3
Also if you can run an update outdate package command, this will be alos helpful:
sudo port upgrade outdated
Continue again the command: sudo port install asterisk
2) Error: Target org.macports.configure returned: configure failure: shell command failed (see log for details).
portaudio failed to install.
Solution: Download port audio files from portaudio website. Replace the source files of portaudio local folded (where the error is located) and Manually install it using the following commands
sudo /usr/bin/make -j2 -w all
sudo /usr/bin/make install
After installation, link this portaudio with port installation using the following command:
port -f activate portaudio
Continue running this command: sudo port install asterisk
3) When installing Asterisk, you may get another error:
For a undefined variable: snmp/agent.c:830: error: ‘RONLY’ undeclared
Solution: Find the file snmp/agent.c and add #define RONLY 1
If Asterisk still fail to install, download the package file from asterisk website and install manually.
