Sample DAHDI installation

After compiling and installing of dahdi and asterisk, you have to perform some further steps to use your hardware.

This example will show you a few steps how to get asterisk and two Digium cards enabled:

1.) Detect your hardware

  # (this will generate /etc/dahdi/system.conf and  /etc/asterisk/dahdi-channels.conf)
 linux:~# dahdi_genconf

2.) Read systm.conf file and configure the kernel

 asterisk:~# dahdi_cfg -v

3.) Restart dahdi to unload and reload all modules and drivers

  linux:~#  /etc/init.d/dahdi restart

4.) Point file chan_dahdi.conf to /etc/asterisk/dahdi-channels.conf

  # open chan_dahdi.conf and include it under the section [channels]
  #
  # NOTE: You can edit and configure /etc/asterisk/dahdi-channels.conf at any time
  # to set up your specific options there.
  …
  [channels]
  # include /etc/asterisk/dahdi-channels.conf
  …

5.) Restart asterisk

  linux:~#  /etc/init.d/asterisk restart

5.a) Verify your current system status. You should get some output like this:

  asterisk*CLI> dahdi show status
  Description                              Alarms     IRQ        bpviol     CRC4
  Wildcard TDM410P Board 1                 OK         0          0          0
  Wildcard TDM800P Board 2                 OK         0          0          0

5.b) Verify your configured channels

  linux*CLI> dahdi show channels
    Chan Extension  Context         Language   MOH Interpret
  pseudo            default                    default
       1            from-pstn       de         default
       2            from-pstn       de         default
       3            from-pstn       de         default
       4            from-pstn       de         default
       5            from-pstn       de         default
       6            from-pstn       de         default
       7            from-pstn       de         default
       8            from-pstn       de         default
       9            from-pstn       de         default
      10            from-pstn       de         default
      11            from-pstn       de         default
      12            from-pstn       de         default
