[asterisk-users] Asterisk Not Starting after YUM Update

Hi List,

it feels silly, but here I am.

My Asterisk box is useless, after running a long delayed yum update (Centos box).


A few details on the box:

cat /etc/redhat-release
	CentOS release 5.10 (Final)


uname -a
	Linux hermes 2.6.18-371.4.1.el5 #1 SMP Thu Jan 30 06:09:24 EST 2014 i686 athlon i386 GNU/Linux

asterisk -r
Asterisk, Copyright (C) 1999 - 2010 Digium, Inc. and others.


Starting Asterisk very verbosely seems to load the dialplan, but at some point I get a segmentation fault. This is new to me!

The problem seems to come after the callerid module loads: does this make sense?

BTW: I do have a G729 pack of licenses (they were actually active without any problem before messing with the update)..

What should the clever sysadmin do?

Thanks in advance,
