I am installing Asterick 13 on Red Hat Enterprise Linux 2.6.32-431.23.3 on a CLOSED network.
So far I have unzipped and tarred the software. I run ./configure and generates the error below.
What causes this?
 [root@server ~]# cd /usr/local/src
[root@server src]# tar -zxvf asterisk-13-current.tar.gz

[root@server src]# cd /usr/local/src/ asterisk-13.1.0
[root@server asterisk-11.X.Y]# ./configure
Configure error: *** uuid support not found (this typically means the uuid development package is missing)

Configure EPEL repository and install asterisk without turning your machine in a build barn.

Most likely in /etc/asterisk...
man whatever.conf
should more or less describe the file and format.

nothing obvious in the /var/log/messages on asterisk server.
 It is giving me this error  /etc/init.d/asterisk status ......Asterisk dead but subsys locked

anything in particular that I should look for,  there are indications of failure or trouble in the logs?

I will try this on Monday.....Has anyone resolved successfully "Asterisk dead but subsys locked"?  

I have seen a lot internet communications about this system failure, but no one mentioned that they succeeded. I have unsuccessfully tried many of those attempts...just curious.

Learn to use init.d scripts and service. "kill" leaves them out of sync.
