Overview

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, 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.

Note
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.

Note
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.

[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 

Without Internet Access

When installing on a system without internet access, there are a few additional steps that are required to build DAHDI. The firmware files for the various VPM modules will need to be downloaded and extracted in the source directory. The file specific links provided below are the current versions as of this writing. Please check the link below for the full list of versions.

On a system with internet access, download the following files:

No Format
wget http://downloads.digium.com/pub/telephony/firmware/releases/dahdi-fw-te133-780019.tar.gz

wget http://downloads.digium.com/pub/telephony/firmware/releases/dahdi-fw-te435-e0019.tar.gz

wget http://downloads.digium.com/pub/telephony/firmware/releases/dahdi-fw-a8b-1d0019.tar.gz

wget http://downloads.digium.com/pub/telephony/firmware/releases/dahdi-fw-a4b-b0019.tar.gz

wget http://downloads.digium.com/pub/telephony/firmware/releases/dahdi-fw-te134-780017.tar.gz

wget http://downloads.digium.com/pub/telephony/firmware/releases/dahdi-fw-te133-780017.tar.gz

wget http://downloads.digium.com/pub/telephony/firmware/releases/dahdi-fw-a8a-1d0017.tar.gz

wget http://downloads.digium.com/pub/telephony/firmware/releases/dahdi-fw-a4a-a0017.tar.gz

wget http://downloads.digium.com/pub/telephony/firmware/releases/dahdi-fwload-vpmadt032-1.25.0.tar.gz

Now send these to the Asterisk system and store them in:

No Format
/usr/local/src/dahdi-linux-complete-2.X.Y+2.X.Y/linux/drivers/dahdi/firmware/

Now we can continue the installation on the Asterisk system using the steps below.

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:

No Format
[root@server src]# cd dahdi-linux-complete-2.X.Y+2.X.Y

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

[root@server firmware]# for tarball in $(ls dahdi-fw-*.tar.gz); do tar -zxf $tarball; done;

[root@server firmware]# cd -

[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
