Can't run Asterisk please help


#1

Hello

I am a trying to implement Asterisk in one of the branches of our corporation , replacing our current windows based telephone system.
I am very proficient with linux based systems, I’ve been working with them
for a long time now, so please be as technical as you may wish, just help
me overcome this obsticle. I’ve done a lasting research on the issue but with
no success i have came to your forum to get the formal help.

Im implementing Asterisk on a Slackware box. I’ve succesfully configured, compiled and installed all mentioned requirements for Asterisk-1.2.7.

When I run Asterisk: (“Asterisk -vvvc”)

[chan_misdn.so] => (Channel driver for mISDN Support (Bri/Pri))
May 10 11:24:58 ERROR[3136]: chan_misdn.c:3855 load_module: Unable to initialize mISDN
May 10 11:24:58 WARNING[3136]: loader.c:414 __load_resource: chan_misdn.so: load_module failed, returning -1
May 10 11:24:58 WARNING[3136]: loader.c:554 load_modules: Loading module chan_misdn.so failed

even though:

as you can see the chan_misdn.so is present and has execution rights.
so i am somewhat puzzled here, as i could not find any info online.

what could be wrong?
what does it mean that misdn could no initialize?
do i have to have the hardware installed in order for misdn to run?

thank you for your time.

please help.


#2

go into /etc/asterisk/modules.conf and add the following line:

noload => chan_misdn.so

then try to start asterisk…if it works, then you’ve found the issue. now, if you need misdn capability, then i’m not sure what you could do, other than check this page:

voip-info.org/wiki/view/Aste … N+channels

if you don’t need it, then the problem is solved.

HTH.
