Playing with asterisk

Hi,

This week I have been playing with asterisk.

I’m using the 1.8 package from the OBS, and the excellent on line book
here
(O’Reilly).

One little thing is nagging me.

The book is using several recorded voices, and not all are in the
distributed openSUSE package. I found most of what is missing from Ubuntu,
specially for other languages (like Spanish).

What I haven’t been able to locate are the recorded voices upstream. Where
are they?

Files like “main-menu.gsm” or "main-menu-wav

(Yes, I googled. No success).


Cheers / Saludos,

Yes, that’s what I got from Ubuntu. But, where are they both getting them,
what is the upstream source for the voices? They are not included in the
source tar. Or I have not seen them.

I just looked again. I donwloaded “asterisk-1.8.10.1.tar.gz”. In the
"…/asterisk-1.8.10.1/sounds/ directory there are two tars:

asterisk-core-sounds-en-gsm-1.4.22.tar.gz
asterisk-moh-opsound-wav-2.03.tar.gz

but the “main-menu.gsm” file is missing (and many others), and it is in the
ubuntu tar for the same version and in your tar.

Actually the source contains about 300 sound files, and yours about 1200.

The source contains the “core” sounds, missing are what ubuntu calls “extra
sounds”. The packaging in the openSUSE buildservice only contains the core
sounds.

(same thing with the asterisk-10.2.1.tar.gz)

Hi
It’s it the spec file for the src rpm;
http://downloads.asterisk.org/pub/telephony/asterisk/old-releases/

Thanks.

It didn’t occur to me to look at the spec file. You are right, on that site
there is an awful lot of text changelog files (I did look at it days ago, I
though there was nothing else), but there are also some
asterisk-sounds…tgz archives, and they contain the missing files, at
least till 2006. There must be more files somewhere, because those are only
English voices and I saw packaged by Ubuntu or Debian French and Spanish at
least.

There should be somewhere where asterisk keeps those resources, but their
web page doesn’t say. Others have told me that the upstream packaging of
asterisk is a mess.

Sounds are also at
<http://downloads.asterisk.org/pub/telephony/asterisk/releases/>, also
dated 2006.

Hi
If you give me a list of files (the tarballs) that contain the ones
your wanting, along with confirming the install location. I’m happy to
check, build and submit an rpm to the telephony(?) repo for inclusion.

Thanks. In fact, I have opened several bugs against the telephony repo, one
is precisely about the missing sounds (Bug 752508). I was trying to locate
the upstream sources for those.

I have been given by my training partners these:

asterisk-core-sounds-es-g722_1.4.21-1_all.deb
asterisk-core-sounds-es-wav_1.4.21-1_all.deb
asterisk-core-sounds-es-gsm_1.4.21-1_all.deb
asterisk-prompt-es_1.4-1_all.deb

And one more I don’t have in my usb stick. The next class is on Tuesday, I
can ask where they got them from exactly.

Mmm, weird… the mc in 12.1 can look inside without problems, but in 11.4
I can’t. I can not see the package contents, just the metadata.
