Let's install DAHDI!
On Linux, we will use the DAHDI-linux-complete tarball, which contains the DAHDI Linux drivers, DAHDI tools, and board firmware files. Again, we're assuming that you've untarred the tarball in the
/usr/local/src directory, and that you'll replace X and Y with the appropriate version numbers.
See What to Download? for more information on downloading the DAHDI tarballs.

Starting with DAHDI-Linux-complete version 2.8.0+2.8.0, all files necessary to install DAHDI are available in the complete tarball. Therefore, all you need to do to install DAHDI is:
[[email protected] src]# cd dahdi-linux-complete-2.X.Y+2.X.Y [[email protected] dahdi-linux-complete-2.X.Y+2.X.Y]# make [[email protected] dahdi-linux-complete-2.X.Y+2.X.Y]# make install [[email protected] dahdi-linux-complete-2.X.Y+2.X.Y]# make config
is more generic and avoids error messages if the Terminal was not started with the super user.

which is not part of the script install_prereq. In any way, this page here and the page over in DAHDI should be kept in sync, or link to each other at least. The other page does not know about the ‘complete’ package, because it was created earlier. That is OK. However, both pages should follow the same approach, for example:
and not the implicit:
because the make target ‘all’ needs other privileges than the make target ‘install’.
