Warning

We no longer support Debian 8 "Jessie"

...

packages for 

Fs
.

Debian 8 "Jessie" was the reference platform for

Fs
as of version 1.6 and is STRONGLY recommended for all applications due to its stability and broad support for the system libraries needed by FreeSWITCH..

Debian 9 "Stretch" was suitable for the

Fs
 1.8 release.

Debian 10 "Buster" is now recommended for the

Fs
 1.10 release.

Info

2016.02.14 — Please note this important change that went into Master today. As of today, we are no longer using system versions of libyuv and libvpx due to major conflicts with system versions of these libraries.  These are now built static into the freeswitch core.  Also note, mod_vpx no longer exists, it is automatically loaded as part of the core and you will no longer have mod_vpx.so nor have to load it manually.  I'll have more details coming, but let me know if you have any questions. 

Please note for anyone doing cross compiling, this probably means a bit more work for you, I'll be working on fixing that this week.

- Mike Jerris

Building Debian packages from master branch

Status

not suitable for production

The master branch depends on video 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
echo "deb http://files.freeswitch.org/repo/deb/debian-unstable/ jessie main" > /etc/apt/sources.list.d/freeswitch.list

apt-get update && apt-get install -y git curl screen

# we need some prepackaged libraries for video support from this repo
curl https://files.freeswitch.org/repo/deb/debian/freeswitch_archive_g0.pub | apt-key add -

# 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 -cjessie

# 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
