One more time but with feeling I attempt to get Asterisk running in a
guest. Seriously this time. :-)
I have a CentOS 5 host and a CentOS 5 guest with Asterisk 1.6 installed
from the asterisk.org and digium.com repositories.
I can start Asterisk from the command line (though I don't have it
configured) but when I try "service asterisk start" (which uses
safe_asterisk) I get the error:
Starting asterisk: Cannot find specified TTY (9) [FAILED]
The man pages says:
safe_asterisk is a script that runs asterisk in a loop, which
can be useful if you fear asterisk may crash.
The script does not run in the background like a standard
service. Rather, it runs in its own linux virtual console (9,
by default). It also uses the option ’-c’ of asterisk(8) to
avoid detaching asterisk from that terminal.
safe_asterisk also runs asterisk with unlimited core file
size, and thus asterisk will dump core in case of a crash.
To get a "picture" of console 9, from another terminal (e.g:
from a remote shell session) you can use:
I've tried not using safe_asterisk in the init script but I got a simple
FAILED but haven't found an error message -- yet -- as to what the
I'm going to the Asterisk list shortly to find out how/if-it's-possible
to disable or remove this "feature" but would prefer to work with it.
In the mean time is there a way to allow safe_asterisk to use virtual
console 9? Create it in the guest?
