Hi

What does your zapata.conf look like,

Any one could find a solution for this problem

I am also facing the same problem . While starting asterisk I get the following message in console and asterisk shuts down .

ERROR[3895]: asterisk.c:2982 main: Asterisk has detected a problem with your Zaptel configuration and will shutdown for your protection. You have options:
1. You only have to compile Zaptel support into Asterisk if you need it. One option is to recompile without Zaptel support.
2. You only have to load Zaptel drivers if you want to take advantage of Zaptel services. One option is to unload zaptel modules if you don’t need them.
3. If you need Zaptel services, you must correctly configure Zaptel.

Most interesting stuff is , I could successfully configure the same PCI analog card with 1 FXO in another PC( infact in different country). tried different ways …tried installing and changing the zaptel.conf . Is it because of some country specific configuration i had to do . Or is it because of some thing specific to my machine.

It will be great if some one could give some clue on this .
