Description:When it comes to the Linux based distributions of the SUSE family, Asterisk has seen many contributions from the community in the past. Although many of those SUSE users are likely to go for a pre-compiled package, the SUSE support should be as complete as possible within Asterisk already. One puzzle piece is the script {{./contrib/scripts/install_prereq}}, which allows a first-time user to install required libraries to compile all Asterisk modules.

After tests in openSUSE Leap 42.3 the following differences to Red Hat were revealed (see ASTERISK-27599):

*undetected* by {{./configure}}

Although the package _binutils-devel_ installs the header file _bfd.h_, no package was found which creates the symlink _libbfd.so_ to the runtime library. The SUSE world only offers a static libary _libbfd.a_, which is not taken by the Asterisk {{./configure}} script. Therefore, Better Backtraces only works if you create that symlink yourself manually.

*not added* because not found:
* [Hoard|http://hoard.org/]
* libresample, not API compatible with libsamplerate either

*not added*:
* libjack-devel

The module app_jack -- the only module which requires jack -- requires libresample as well. libresample was not found. Therefore, no reason was found to install jack, although that is available as package.
