Comment: Debian 9 Stretch support

About

...

 

Info

Debian 9 “Stretch” is not yet now officially supported by

Fs
.

Dependencies remain to be developed and testing reports are needed from the community.Also, Debian 9 APT has dropped support for SHA-1, requiring our repositories to be re-signed. You will receive errors relating to missing or unusable keys until

Fs
are available from FreeSWITCH repository via the "apt-get build-dep freeswitch" command.

Debian 9 "Stretch" is the reference platform for 

Fs
 as of version 1.8 is officially released.

For now, deploy on Debian 8 “Jessie” which is a proven platform for production systems. Debian 9 is for TESTING ONLY, so you must determine the dependencies and resolve other issues in the meantime.

and is STRONGLY recommended for all applications due to its stability and broad support for the system libraries needed by FreeSWITCH.

Building Debian Packages From Master Branch

Status
colourYellow
titleWARNING
 not suitable for production

The master branch depends on different libraries which are not available as packages in Debian distribution, but are available from FreeSWITCH repository. Thus, you will need internet access to the FreeSWITCH DEB repository.

Code Block
languagebash
titleBuild your own .deb Master package
wget -O - https://files.freeswitch.org/repo/deb/debian-unstable/freeswitch_archive_g0.pub | apt-key add -

echo "deb http://files.freeswitch.org/repo/deb/debian-unstable/ stretch main" > /etc/apt/sources.list.d/freeswitch.list
echo "deb-src http://files.freeswitch.org/repo/deb/debian-unstable/ stretch main" >> /etc/apt/sources.list.d/freeswitch.list

apt-get update && apt-get install -y xz-utils devscripts cowbuilder git screen

# get the latest master. Use the -b flag to get a specific branch
mkdir /usr/src/freeswitch-debs
git clone https://freeswitch.org/stash/scm/fs/freeswitch.git /usr/src/freeswitch-debs/freeswitch

cd /usr/src/freeswitch-debs
# here it's good to run screen with logging, so that you can detach from the shell prompt
screen -L
cd freeswitch
./debian/util.sh build-all -aamd64 -cstretch

# here you can detach by Ctrl-a Ctrl-d and see the log files in /usr/src/freeswitch-debs/log/ folder.
# The build may last about an hour, depending on your CPU speed.
# If the build is successful, you will have a bunch of .deb files in /usr/src/freeswitch-debs
