Description:Cant compile Asterisk on CentOS 4 using a RPM based Net-SNMP tried 5.1.2 and 5.4.3.

Configure dies with message:

checking for net-snmp-config... /usr/bin/net-snmp-config
checking for snmp_register_callback in -lnetsnmp... no
configure: ***
configure: *** The Net-SNMP installation on this system appears to be broken.
configure: *** Either correct the installation, or run configure
configure: *** including --without-netsnmp

A change to the configure file fixes the config issue.

Change line 21667 in the configure file.

NETSNMP_libs=`${NETSNMP_CONFIG} –agent-libs`



This will allow the configure to go through without issue, and compile asterisk.

But problems persist when starting asterisk:

Here is the output from running asterisk -vvvgcT

[Nov 27 16:31:51]   == Starting Agent

asterisk: symbol lookup error: /usr/lib/asterisk/modules/res_snmp.so: undefined symbol: init_agent

Compiling Net-SNMP from source works no problem.

This is a distro specific issue. Check the output of net-snmp-config --agent-libs and make sure all libraries mentioned are present. There was an issue previously where this was not true and they had to be installed separately. If I remember correctly it was on CentOS.
