DAHDI Dummy

Or how to fix my ASL node from stuttering when I use it.

Compiling

Raspberry PI ASL 1.01 systems

For ASL 1.01 systems ASL 1.01 system.

  1. ensure your system is up and going, with the kernel pinned per the readme
# apt-mark hold raspberrypi-kernel-headers raspberrypi-kernel

Now run the following commands:

# apt-get install gcc raspberrypi-kernel-headers make vim git  
# vim /usr/src/asl-dahdi-linux-2.11.1/linux/drivers/dahdi/Kbuild remove the # from the dummy file
# cd /usr/src/asl-dahdi-linux-2.11.1
# make 
# make install
# echo -e "#needed for rpi timing \ndahdi_dummy" >>/etc/modules  # add it to modules.conf
# modprobe dahdi_dummy
# service restart asterisk

Others

To build as root:

# cd /usr/src/asl-dahdi-linux-2.11.1/linux
# export MODULES_EXTRA='dahdi_dummy'
# make

Loading module

Now you need to load the module into the Linux kernel for use.

# insmod /usr/src/asl-dahdi-linux-2.11.1/linux/drivers/dahdi/dahdi_dummy.ko

Verify the module is loaded along with other DAHDI dependencies

# lsmod |grep dahdi
dahdi_dummy             3432  0
dahdi                 229561  35 dahdi_dummy
crc_ccitt               1771  1 dahdi

Configuring DAHDI

You will need to do dahdi_genconf and then dahdi_cfg. ASL1.01 is missing this in the service script that starts asterisk. It needs to be added.

Restart asterisk

# service asterisk restart

Run dahdi_scan to view results:

# dahdi_scan
