I'm running Freepbx (x64) with Asterisk 1.8.9.3 on a AMD Athlon II X3 455 Rana CPU

I would like to install the g729 codec.  
Do i download it from Digium or can i use the ones on asterisk.hosting.lv?
It seems that Digium ones need a compile while the ones on hosting.lv do not.

Which is the one i need?

Thx

You haven't stated which Linux you're running, but the ones from asterisk.hosting.lv should load fine as long as you get the one that matches your architecture.

If you're running standard 32-bit, then get the pentium one.  If you're running 64-bit then get the x86_64 one.

You can run the following command on your Linux box to see if you're 64-bit capable:

cat /proc/cpuinfo | grep flags

If the flag "lm" (long mode) appears, you need the x86_64 codec.  It will look something like this:

flags           : fpu vme de pse tsc msr pae mce cx8 apic sep mtrr pge mca cmov pat pse36 clflush dts acpi mmx fxsr sse sse2 ss ht tm pbe syscall nx rdtscp lm constant_tsc arch_perfmon pebs bts rep_good xtopology nonstop_tsc aperfmperf pni dtes64 monitor ds_cpl vmx est tm2 ssse3 cx16 xtpr pdcm dca sse4_1 sse4_2 popcnt lahf_lm dts tpr_shadow vnmi flexpriority ept vpid
