Asterisk 1.8 has been retired

Asterisk 1.8 was released in 2010, as an LTS release, that meant it received 5 years of support. At the end of 2015, that ended.

As it's no longer supported or getting security updates, nobody should be using it. As such, the Asterisk 1.8 repository here has been retired.

If you were using the Asterisk 1.8 repository, changing to one of the newer LTS versions should be as simple as disabling the Asterisk 1.8 repository and enabling the Asterisk 13 repository. There may be some challenges with differences in available modules and configuration though, so you would be likely best reading the UPGRADE notes and testing the upgrade before doing it in production.

Recent updates

The automated build process has handled a number of recent Asterisk releases as expected.

Current versions of Asterisk RPM packages in the repository here for CentOS/RHEL 6 & 7 are:

  • Asterisk 1.8.32.3
  • Asterisk 11.21.2
  • Asterisk 13.7.2

Known issue: While testing of the packages has been positive, there is a known issue that RHEL/CentOS 7 RPMs include the '-ices' sub-package but there is no icecast package available through the local repository or EPEL, so, it can't be installed.

Asterisk RPMs

Background

Back in October the official Asterisk wiki page on packages was modified to state that there is currently no official repository for Asterisk packages. Indeed, since then, there have been no new packages released at http://packages.asterisk.org, the last versions available there being, all updated on 23rd October 2015, but released on 9th April 2015 are:

  • Asterisk 13.3.2
  • Asterisk 12.8.2
  • Asterisk 11.17.1
    • Those 3 releases were security releases to address AST-2015-003, the latest security advisory for Asterisk, but, making it to RPM 6 months after release. Leaving people using the official RPMs potentially exposed for 6 months. That's obviously an issue, and I expect the topic of a number of Digium internal conversations that, combined with the fact that it needed quite a bit of love and Digium were potentially suffering from limited in-house time and skills, likely resulted in the decision to drop support.

      Fedora EPEL would appear to be the ideal place to see Asterisk supported, in fact, it was, but following the typical slow and steady approach of EPEL, with Asterisk 1.8.32.3 being the latest release there, released on 9th April 2015 to address AST-2015-003, and only for EL6. Unfortunately, the maintainer of the package on EPEL/Fedora, jcollie, has stepped away from maintaining Asterisk packages also, it's not visably clear where that leaves Asterisk there.

      If you use Asterisk on CentOS or RHEL, you want to be using RPM packages, not messing around with building source tarballs on each of the machines you maintain. I use Asterisk on CentOS, both on CentOS 6 and more recently on CentOS 7 working with quite a few systems that it's important to keep consistent. I need RPMs that receive fixes in a timely manner, so, I've built my own with an automated build system. As I'm sure I'm not the only one who needs this, I'm sharing them here.

      Asterisk RPM repository @ tucny.com

      I'm still testing the builds, and for anyone else who finds there way here, I encourage you to thoroughly test too before deploying into a production environment. Standard boiler plate: These packages are without warranty, you use them at your own risk.

      Using The Repository

      The following steps can get you up and running with the repository quickly:
      1. Download the repo file from https://ast.tucny.com/repo/tucny-asterisk.repo to /etc/yum.repos.d/
      2. Import the signing key using 'rpm --import https://ast.tucny.com/repo/RPM-GPG-KEY-dtucny'
      3. Edit the /etc/yum.repos.d/tucny-asterisk.repo and set 'enabled=1' for 'asterisk-common' and the version of asterisk you want to use
      4. If you are not already using EPEL, you should enable it as some dependencies are provided by EPEL. For CentOS: 'yum install epel-release', for RHEL or other RHEL based distribution, install 'epel-release' following the instructions at The Fedora EPEL Website
      5. Install the packages you want. 'dnf install asterisk' or 'yum install asterisk' can get you started. 'dnf list asterisk*' or 'yum install asterisk*' will list available packages that you may want to install depending on your requirements

      Reporting Problems

      If you discover any issues with the RPMs provided here, please do report them. Please email ast@tucny.com with the details of the system you are using, what packages you are having a problem with, steps to reproduce the issue and expected behaviour.

      NOTE: If you have an issue with Asterisk that is not package related, it would be best to raise these at the Asterisk Issue Tracker.
