asterisk 14.2 on opensuse 13.2

I am trying to install asterisk 14.2 from on an x86_64 server.

I had asterisk 13 installed from the same repository and it would start just fine, but when I saw 14 show up I decided to upgrade to 14 and am starting to regret my decision. Any ideas on how to pursue this error?

I see that the date of the files on the repo of that version is 2017-01-17. That is strange, because it is the same date that openSUSE 13.2 went out of support. It looks thus if they have put a new, but broken, version in the repo in the last possible moment :frowning:

Maybe you can contact the maintainers of the repo.

How do I figure out the maintainer of the repo?

I dropped the maintainer an email yesterday. No reply yet.

I may be on the trail of the problem. One of the co-requisite packages from the repo for digium adapter card support (yes, I have a digium card in the server) is

and it is installed. But, the kernel level installed from yast online update on the server is:

pe2950f:~/# uname -a
Linux pe2950f 3.16.7-53-desktop #1 SMP PREEMPT Fri Dec 2 13:19:28 UTC 2016 (7b4a1f9) x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux

If I understand that right, 3.16.6_2-1.1 is not equal to 3.16.7-53.

I vaguely recall that there is sensitivity in Asterisk concerning the dahdi modules and the kernel.

No reply from the package maintainer.

I grabbed the source rpms for dahdi and asterisk from the /source directory in that repository and was able to rebuild them. I started first by rebuilding only the dahdi package from the dahdi-linux-2.11.1.tar.gz from the source rpm, but the asterisk module still failed with the same error in my original post. I then moved on to make and make install of asterisk from the asterisk-14.2.1.tar.gz in the source rpm. Asterisk now starts ok and gives me a CLI prompt.

It would seem based on my experience that whatever is in the rpm in the repository I cited in my original post is no good.
