How to install FreeSwitch Package on pFsense embedded?


  • Hi all!

    can anyone tell me if it is possible to install freeswitch into an embeddd pfsense image?

    Whe not what are the alternatives? I have got an Alix 2c2 Board and I don't want to change the System.

    Best regards

  • Details can be found in the packages forum ;)

    The short version is that embedded doesn't support packages.  The 1.2.3 nano builds and all full builds do.


  • Well, the latest embedded pfSense (1.2.3-RELEASE) is based on nano. Also, it does support packages. However, for some reason FreeSWITCH is left out of it!

    Is there any way to work around that? How can we download it manually and install it?

    Thanks!

    FreeSWITCH was not left out, it was disabled. The FreeSWITCH package, as it currently exists, requires constant write access to the storage media. That will not work on embedded because it runs with the media in read-only mode.

    If you want to use FreeSWITCH, you can run a full installation on your embedded device. This will cause your CF to wear out faster than normal, but with the ever-increasing longevity of CF media these days, it may not be an issue for you.
