Let's install DAHDI!

On Linux, we will use the DAHDI-linux-complete tarball, which contains both the DAHDI Linux drivers as well as the DAHDI tools. 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.


titleInstall DAHDI before libpri

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

titleDon'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.
