Help needed with Dahdi


I installed asterisk 1.6.5 with dahdi with a Wildcard x100p modem card. I’m unable to get it to work. I need help setting it up. When I try to make a call I get the following error:

Unable to create channel of type ‘DAHDI’ (cause 0 - Unknown)

tester:~# asterisk -rx "dahdi show status"

DAHDI Version:

Channel map:

1 channels to configure.

Setting echocan for channel 1 to mg2

Thanks in advanced.

I was having a similar issue as you, so I might be able to help.

First, can you give us the output of this command?

#cat /proc/dahdi/*

Second, what happens when you type this command at the Asterisk CLI?

*CLI> dahdi show channels

cat /proc/dahdi/*
Span 1: WCFXO/0 “Generic Clone Board 1” (MASTER)

       1 WCFXO/0/0 FXSKS (In use) (SWEC: MG2)

tester*CLI> dahdi show channels
Chan Extension Context Language MOH Interpret Blocked State
pseudo default default In Service
1 default es default In Service


And I missed this in your first post, but the RED alarm is not a good sign. It should say OK.

What does your chan_dahdi.conf have setup for channel 1?

What error messages do you get when you unload and load the module?

*CLI> module unload
*CLI> module load
