Source-Based Installation

Source install is for developers or users who need to install AllStarLink 3 on unsupported hardware or operating systems. Installing ASL from source code is primarily for developers. Doing so will require you to download, compile, and install multiple projects. You will also need to be very comfortable using various development tools and the Linux CLI.

The following instructions are for building ONLY Asterisk with ASL's app_rpt.

  • Source install does not include any helpers, Allmon3, asl3-menu, asl3-nodelist, etc.
  • Installs and runs Asterisk as root (this is, in general, bad)

Install script

The phreaknet script compiles and patches Asterisk and DAHDI. You should install the script with the following commands :

cd /usr/src
chmod +x
./ make

Once installed, you can keep the script updated with :

phreaknet update

Install Asterisk 20 LTS

Use -t or -b for developer mode. Both are optional.

  • The -t is for backtraces and thread debug. Thread debugging is resource intensive.
  • Use -b for backtraces only, recommended on 386 or for submitting core dumps.
  • The -s is for sip if you need it still, leave off the -s if you don’t
  • The -d is for DAHDI and is required
  • The -v is to install the latest of the major version specified, 20 in this case
  • Use -f to force a reinstall (upgrade)
phreaknet install -d -b -v 20

Asterisk should be running at this point but not app_rpt. Check the install with asterisk -r.

Clone ASL3 repo

cd /usr/src
git clone

Install ASL3

This script does a git pull of app_rpt and compiles the branch you are on.

cd app_rpt

Install ASL3 configs

This adds ASL3 configs to the full set of Asterisk configuration files. ASL3 modules.conf limits what actually runs.

cp /usr/src/app_rpt/configs/rpt/* /etc/asterisk

After restarting Asterisk (or rebooting the system) you should now have a complete ASL3 install. You can use the following command as a quick check :

asterisk -rx "rpt localnodes"
You should see node 1999.
