So, I've been mucking around with Asterisk lately and decided to destroy my install!
Realizing what I had done, I went hunting for the original asterisk-pluto and/or pluto-asterisk packages to repair things but could not find them anywhere locally. I searched ("find | grep [Aa]sterisk") my local deb-cache and the install DVD to no avail. (I'm using the 7.10 RC2 i386 single layer ISO if that matters.) I noticed Tekoholic had similar issues...
In the meantime, I wiped the drive clean and put a fresh install to find asterisk-pluto happily running! Using the adept-manager, it shows the proper package relationships and installed files, but any information for the source package or filename is blank. (I figured the installation grabbed an updated .deb file from the repository and was going to stash it away for safe keeping.)
So, where should I reliably go to pull down the packages if I screw things up again? Apt-get recognizes that other packages depend on asterisk-pluto and pluto-asterisk but tells me it can't locate them in the repositories. Should I add another repository to the apt/sources.list? Do I need to pull down the dual layer DVD ISO? AMD64? Should I rebuild the package from the source? Just looking to make life easer in the future so that small tweaks don't lead to a 6-hour reinstall.
