|April 15 - Weekly macOS testing is done |
Weekly testing of the FreeSwitch Master Development version is suspended due to build errors since August 1 2021.
macOS testing was performed only on Intel Macs, not M1. There is currently no time frame set for when M1 testing will start. However, the 5 remaining prerequisites must have an arm64 version before M1 testing begins.
All 104 homebrew supplied packages now have an arm64 Big Sur version.
None of the 5 Freeswitch supplied homebrew packages have an arm64 Big Sur version.
M1 Arm testing may begin if macOS building resumes.
All macOS versions are installed into new volumes with the latest Apple Command Line Tools. Upgraded systems or libraries are never used.
This is the easiest method to install FreeSWITCH™ and is a good way to get the feel of FreeSWITCH with the least time and effort. The disadvantages are that it can only install the current production version and is very limited because additional modules cannot be easily built if they are not part of the default set.
To perform a Homebrew installation use the macOS Homebrew Installation instructions.
Until further notice, this is the ONLY WAY to install FreeSWITCH on macOS. See Status above.
macOS FreeSWITCH™ Installer (macFI)
The macOS FreeSWITCH™ Installer is the recommended method because it automates all of the manual steps, providing much simpler and faster installation. Other advantages include renaming existing FreeSWITCH™ directories before installation, and creating installation logs. The macFI information and download is located at macOS macFI Installation.
The macOS FreeSWITCH™ Installer performs identical functions as a manual installation with additions such as logging.
A manual installation requires use of the Terminal application to enter commands to setup directories, install prerequisites and FreeSWITCH™.
To perform a manual installation use the macOS Manual Installation instructions,
