thanks. I installed it and I noticed that the default configuration files are not present in /etc/asterisk/ such as rpt.conf, modules.conf, etc. After the install and when logging in after the reboot I get the error "ASL config files not in /etc/asterisk directory ...Exiting." There is nothing in /etc/asterisk except a custom directory with a blank readme in it.
I tried to issue the command
sudo touch /etc/asterisk/firsttime && sudo /usr/local/sbin/first-time
after the install instructions from Q4. That did not solve the problem.
Do I need to apt-get install asterisk first?
I am using Stretch x64.
