- I found another PC in the office to test Asterisk with 3 101P FXO cards. This motherboard is able to assign an IRQ to each card, while the other host used shared IRQs. According to dmesg and lspci, Linux seems happy. So far, so good.
Problem is, when I plug in an analog line in one of the three cards, zttool doesn’t switch from RED to OK, and calling in doesn’t trigger any RING. The other two cards are fine.
What could be the cause? Not enough voltage to power all three PCI cards (along with a NIC and an AGP cards)? Another cause?
- Generally speaking, how can I avoid rebooting every time I make changes to /etc/zaptel.conf, /etc/asterisk/zapata.conf, or /etc/asterisk/extensions.conf?
