About

Debian 8 "Jessie" is the reference platform for FreeSWITCH™ 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.

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.

Installing from Debian packages

latest release branch:

apt-get update && apt-get install -y curl
curl https://files.freeswitch.org/repo/deb/debian/freeswitch_archive_g0.pub | apt-key add -

echo "deb http://files.freeswitch.org/repo/deb/freeswitch-1.6/ jessie main" > /etc/apt/sources.list.d/freeswitch.list

# you may want to populate /etc/freeswitch at this point.
# if /etc/freeswitch does not exist, the standard vanilla configuration is deployed
apt-get update && apt-get install -y freeswitch-all freeswitch-all-dbg gdb

master branch (eg: "git"):

WARNING not suitable for production

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

Building Debian packages from master branch

WARNING 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 need to import the FreeSWITCH repository PGP key and use the supplied sources.list file.

echo "deb http://files.freeswitch.org/repo/deb/freeswitch-1.6/ jessie main" > /etc/apt/sources.list.d/freeswitch.list
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 -b -i -z1 -aamd64 -cjessie -T /usr/src/freeswitch-debs/freeswitch/debian/apt_sources.list

# 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

Starting FreeSWITCH

Starting FreeSWITCH
cd /usr/local/freeswitch/
./bin/freeswitch -ncwait -nonat
./bin/fs_cli

Note that when installed from packages (as in "latest release branch") the binaries are located in "/usr/bin/freeswitch" (It should also be possible to just use "freeswitch" - double check with "which").
