make modules

Generate Config for Makefile

make cfg
  • add extra defines in makefile config
  • cfg for Makefile is config.mak
  • you can edit it and tune as you wish before compilation

Enable Module

If the module is not compiled by default:

  • edit modules.lst
  • remove the name of the module from exclude_modules variable

or type:

make modules-cfg include_modules=<name_of_the_module>


The same can be accomplished with

make cfg include_modules=<name_of_the_module> 

, but this will remake the whole config.

Combined Parameters

Various parameters can be given to make command, an example:

make prefix=/opt/kamailio \
     SCTP=1 \
     CC_EXTRA_OPTS=-I/usr/gnu/include \
     group_include="standard postgres presence" \
     include_modules="snmpstats perl tls" \

or you can save them in the config (they will be used by future make invocations) by givin the same parameters to make cfg:

make cfg prefix=/opt/kamailio \
     SCTP=1 \
     CC_EXTRA_OPTS=-I/usr/gnu/include \
     group_include="standard postgres presence" \
     include_modules="snmpstats lcr tls"
