Installing Asterisk from source on Ubuntu

These packages must be installed in order to get Asterisk to compile from source on Ubuntu:

aptitude install bison flex libncurses5-dev build-essential

Actually, bison and flex shouldn’t be needed unless you’re compiling Asterisk 1.0 (which has been obsolete for quite some time now). Another useful hint is to run “make menuselect” in the Asterisk source tree. Then, you can see which modules will not be compiled based on unsatisfied dependencies.

You are correct, though, that libncurses5-dev and build-essential are the minimum requirements.
