I'm using Asterisk 18.7.1.
I can't get res_fax to load. I built it accidentally with app_fax
enabled, and was getting this in the log on startup:
[Nov 3 11:52:31] ERROR loader.c: Error loading module 'res_fax_spandsp.so', missing dependency: res_fax
Discovering that app_fax and res_fax conflict, I went back in to make
menuselect and unselected app_fax, so now it says this:
( ) app_fax
and in the resource modules I have this:
so I re-did make and make install and then a full asterisk restart, but
I still got the same "missing dependency: res_fax" error in the log.
I noticed that "noload => res_fax.so" was in modules.conf so I removed
that line and restarted Asterisk again, but it then declined to load,
ending with this error:
[Nov 3 11:54:45] ERROR loader.c: *** Failed to load module app_fax.so
[Nov 3 11:54:45] ERROR asterisk.c: Module initialization failed. ASTERISK EXITING!
and sure enough if I put that line back in to modules.conf, Asterisk
start and I notice that it's been saying this:
[Nov 3 11:54:59] WARNING loader.c: Module 'app_fax' has been
loaded but was deprecated in Asterisk version 16 and will be removed in
Asterisk version 19. Its replacement is 'res_fax'.
I can't figure out why it's still loading app_fax. Any ideas?
