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.

Install DAHDI before libpri


libpri 1.4.13 and later source code depends on DAHDI include files. So, one must install DAHDI before installing libpri.

Don't need DAHDI?


 If you are not integrating with any traditional telephony equipment and you are not planning on using the MeetMe dialplan application, then you do not have to install DAHDI or libpri in order to use Asterisk.

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:

[root@server src]# cd dahdi-linux-complete-2.X.Y+2.X.Y

[root@server dahdi-linux-complete-2.X.Y+2.X.Y]# make

[root@server dahdi-linux-complete-2.X.Y+2.X.Y]# make install

[root@server dahdi-linux-complete-2.X.Y+2.X.Y]# make config
