Default How to install the kernel source code ?
I try to install the Asterisk iptelephony server.

I have first downloaded and installed the FreeBSD port tree, and this worked OK. Among these ports I also found Asterisk and Zaptel.

So far so good .. but .. when I started the installation process I were awere that the installer asked for the kernel source code.

Does anybody know how to install the kernel souce code in a easy way on PCBSD ?

By the way, I am aware that I'm doing things that might breake my PCBSD installation, but I accept that, as I find it very interesting to see if Asterisk can be installed and run on it. One reason for this is that PCBSD already has a sip telephony client, and by combining Asterisk and the client on one PC it is possible to set up a very advanced and flexible telephony solution, on top the PCBSD installation. Something like a Note book workstation with a built in SIP telephone and PBX switchboard might be quite possible, doing free calls around in the world, etc.

What version are you using? In the 1.4 development versions, you can install ALL source, including the kernel source, by going to 'Control Center>Software And Updates>Add/Remove Software>Optional Components' and choosing to install the system source, which will be installed under '/sys'. As for exactly what file(s) you need to give Asterisk, I haven't a clue.

Thanks a lot for info !

I rearanged a little bit and made the installation as a minimum installation that did not require the kernel source code. While deselecting a lot of options the need for kernel souce code wan't there anymore.

It compiled and went in and it looks like that it is running and working, even though I I have not mede the full testing yet.

Will be looking into how to do a bigger installation with sourcode a litle bit later on. (The sourcode were needed to install the Zaptel module that is normally a part of the Asterisk distro. I believe that it is needed only if you want to connect the PC to the telenet directely via a telecard. If you manage all trafic as iptelephony I think this module is not needed, but I have not tested yet.)

By the way one speciality with a Asterisk installation on PCBSD is that the configuration files ends up an other place than the normal place, so I first thought that the installation was incomplete.
