Kernel 2.6.16

I am having problems with the zaptel/asterisk and the 2.6.16 kernel. I have read, checked and rechecked all the docs and that din’t help me with my situation.

First I have a problem with udev:
modprobe wctdm gives:
"Unable to open master device '/dev/zap/ctl’
Yes, i have checked the README.udev and make install have allready added the needed files to /etc/udev/rules.d and permissions.d but I just wasn’t able to get it to work until I manualy created nodes for the zap (script made from part of a zaptel Makefile)
ztcfg -vvv now displays 4 channels as it should, also ztmonitor works

But now I can’t get asterisk to work, when starting asterisk -vvvgc it gives:
Unable to specify channel 1: No such device or address … Loading modules failed

file exists in /usr/lib/asterisk/modules

Any hints/tips please!!!

First I’m new in Asterisk, so may be I can’t solve your problem. The new Zaptel create a file /etc/udev/rules.d/zaptel.rules. The device was with properties "OWNER=“asterisk”, GROUP=“asterisk”, MODE=“0660”. It suggest you should create a user & group named “asterisk”.

I’m had problem which bootup due to my system was using ldap auth. I solved the problem by create user & group “asterisk”.

Try it.


I have just figured it out

I have checked all the places but dmesg where it said:
or something like that

i have then checked the connector and found out it was loose

it works now like it should from begening

how did you manually create the nodes?

i have put this in rc.local script
i have copied it from zaptel Makefile

#zaptel dev configuration
rm -f -R /dev/zap
mkdir -p /dev/zap
rm -f /dev/zap/ctl
