I’m having difficulties with the dahdi installation part of the asterisk setup process. Well, I ran into this issue where the ‘make’ for dahdi was looking for the kernel source, and couldn’t find it (I’m running CentOS 5.8 on a hostgator vps, kernel version according to ‘uname -r’ is: 2.6.18-028stab094.3, 64-bit).
I tried ‘yum install devel’ and a few of the variations on that (like xen-devel) and I’m getting this kernel version: 2.6.18-308.8.2.el5-x86_64.
At one point I thought I would be clever and just make a symbolic link in ‘/lib/modules’ that points from ‘/lib/modules/2.6.18-028stab094.3/build/’ to ‘/usr/src/kernels/2.6.18-308.8.2.el5-x86_64/’, which actually did get me past installation, but then when I tried running ‘service dahdi start’ I got the dreaded ‘FATAL: Module dahdi not found’ and [FAILED] on every item, along with the ‘Error: missing /dev/dahdi!’ at the end.
I’ve searched the forums for similar dahdi problems and i’ve found a few, regarding running things like ‘yum update’ and stuff (might not have been this forum I’ve been kind of bouncing between here and centos.org), but none seem to work.
Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
Also, ‘uname -a’ shows: 2.6.18-028stab094.3 #1 SMP Thu Sep 22 12:47:37 MSD 2011 x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux, if that helps any?
