asterisk missing default sounds, voicemail doesn't work by default
Last modified: 2008-07-10 11:21:26 EDT
Hello. I have the latest fedora 9 updates installed.
I'm using the testing version of the asterisk update:
I am moving from my own build of asterisk to trying out the fedora 9 beta
asterisk. In my transition, I found that none of the default sounds,
which should be in /usr/share/asterisk/sounds/, seem to exist. This makes
using asterisk voicemail difficult. I have these packages installed:
[root@highrise ~]# rpm -qa | grep asterisk
[root@highrise ~]# rpm -qa | grep zaptel
When I tried to use the voicemail system, it failed because it wasn't able to
open the sounds. Here is an example error message in the messages file:
[Jul 9 22:36:39] WARNING file.c: File vm-login does not exist in any format
[Jul 9 22:36:39] WARNING file.c: Unable to open vm-login (format 0x4
(ulaw)): No such file or directory
[Jul 9 22:36:39] WARNING app_voicemail.c: Couldn't stream login file
When I copied the sounds from my previous asterisk install in to position,
voicemail started to work fine.
Would it be possible to create a package with asterisk default sounds included?
I could test such a package if requested.
Unfortunately, packaging the existing sounds is not possible because they do not
have a license that is compatible with Fedora's policies. The short term
solution is to download and install the sounds yourself. Longer term work has
been happening on bug 428832.
