I'm not sure, but the Package seems to need some user interaction. Out of
the box it doesn't work.
Reading "/usr/share/doc/asterisk/README.Debian" tells me:
"By default the package will create user and group 'asterisk' and will run
But there is no user creation in /var/lib/dpkg/info/asterisk.postinst.
After executing the following:
adduser --system --group --home /var/lib/asterisk --gecos "Asterisk PBX
daemon" asterisk
adduser asterisk audio
test -d /var/log/asterisk || mkdir /var/log/asterisk
test -d /var/log/asterisk/cdr-csv || mkdir /var/log/asterisk/cdr-csv
chown -R asterisk.asterisk /var/log/asterisk /var/run/asterisk \
/var/spool/asterisk /var/lib/asterisk /etc/asterisk

Everything runs fine. Are these lines missing or did I made a mistake?
