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.

No Format

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.
