Package: asterisk-config
Version: 1:1.4.5~dfsg-1
Severity: important

asterisk fails to install here because asterisk-config fails to configure:

   Setting up asterisk-config (1.4.5~dfsg-1) ...
   Asterisk not yet configured. Edit /etc/default/asterisk first.
   invoke-rc.d: initscript asterisk, action "restart" failed.
   dpkg: error processing asterisk-config (--configure):

I did edit my /etc/default/asterisk file, but I have not yet found what to
put in there to make the package happy. Right now, I have:


in there, but even with the provided asterisk file, with RUNASTERISK=no
merely de-commented it doesn't start.

Whatever prints that message should really be more specific about what
magic to put into that file to make the package happy.
