[ASTERIK] configure: error: *** uuid support not found (this typically means the uuid development package is missing)

ISSUE: Build error on Asterik , when you want test webrtc feature :)

checking for uuid_generate_random in -luuid... no
checking for uuid_generate_random in -le2fs-uuid... no
checking for uuid_generate_random... no
configure: error: *** uuid support not found (this typically means the uuid development package is missing)


Fix: This issue arises due to missing of UUID generator specified by rfc4122 .

+Linux

sudo apt-get install uuid-dev 

@Unix
yum -y install libuuid-devel


Asterik comes with lots of helpful script available on - asterisk/contrib/scripts/ folder of your ASTERIK source.

So just use the following command on UNIX console to run the asterik pre-requisite script.

contrib/scripts/install_prereq install

And you are done! configuring.

Now --

Make Asterik.

Install UUID by yum or apt-get install if you fail to install with script.
