thanks for this. looks like at some point they switched to supporting 1.1.

This also needs libcurl built using openssl 1.0. The one in official repositories is built using openssl 1.1

EDIT: Other OS libs are also linked with openssl 1.1. Freeswitch cannot run unless it is linked with openssl 1.1

EDIT2: Just replacing openssl-1.0 with openssl in deps fixed the problems. Now freeswitch is running fine.

Thanks to Alex from FreeSWITCH reaching out. He said that what the Signalwire sales representative has relayed to me is inaccurate and that FreeSWITCH itself remains opensource.

As such, I have done some investigation and can get it building again on Arch with gcc8.

An updated package will hit shortly.

i'm aware the package is out of date. please see the pinned comments; FreeSWITCH (Signalwire) is refusing to support anything but Debian. This includes bug reports for compilation errors due to newer versions of gcc. Patches welcome, otherwise there's not much i or we can do here.

sanerb commented on 2018-08-26 07:00


yeah, read the pinned comments.

Hi. Seems like compilation doesn't work with gcc 8.2.0

Having issue with strncpy

src/switch_core_sqldb.c: In function ‘switch_cache_db_status’:

further confirmation per


Arch is not supported and there are no plans to support it in the future.

Feel free to reopen if you can reproduce it with Debian.



i'm open to suggestions on how to proceed from here. i'm guessing it's time to just delete the package, but again- open on how to proceed.

needless to say, i am very disappointed in this move from FreeSWITCH/Signalwire and their sudden shift in choosing to no longer be a part of the opensource community.

so, bad news.

after opening the jira issue, a sales representative from the parent company of FreeSWITCH, Signalwire, contacted me with the following email reproduced in full:

Hi Brent,

My name is Ryan over here at FS. I'm reaching out because I was notified of the JIRA you sent in. As you know there is the open source version 1.6 of FS available yet there isn't much support available any longer. That is due to the recent change to commercialize the newest version so we can better provide support. In order to help you and your company please see the below.

We have developed an enterprise release of FS that pre-dates the open source release (on average 18-24mo) and contains commercial-only solutions. Our effort over the last 12 years to build FS has left us with an amazing base platform on which we are currently building a more professional public-facing offering in both a localized and cloud-hosted version.

The FSA program gives you access to this enterprise branch of FS and is the only version supported by the core developers. We continue to offer professional services as part of the FSA program and have been upgrading our current customers to the FSA subscription.

As a commercial customer you will have your own dedicated HipChat channel for your resources to interface with ours, an account manager and technical contact, and we are available 24x7 excluding US holidays. We have really made a big effort in dedicating our resources to our commercial customers now. The open source community and release will still exist but will only receive security updates, all patches and features will be reserved for the enterprise version.

The only additional information I would like to provide is around pricing and terms, we have done away with all hourly or project based support. All terms are either 12, 24 or 36 months and pricing carries a base fee of $5,000 per month. I would love to learn more about your deployment and can put together an official quote if its of interest.

Please let me know any additional questions, Id be happy to speak with you as well.



this has been confirmed via a direct freeswitch contact address.

so it looks like not only will this bug not be fixed any time soon, if ever, but it also means that they are closing shop on the opensource version.

i recommend either finding an alternative solution or forking the freeswitch project. if someone does fork it, please let me know and i would be happy to maintain an AUR package for it if desired.

@TheDarkula -

it's direct upstream, it'd have to be with Freeswitch devs. i'll do that now and post the link here so you can follow progress, moment please...
