Ouch ... error while writing audio data: : Broken pipe?

Hello People,

I have updated asterisk to the latest head without any errors and now when i try and start asterisk I get the following error and asterisk refuses to start:

[chan_zap.so] => (Zapata Telephony w/PRI)
== Parsing ‘/etc/asterisk/zapata.conf’: Found
[root@localhost root]# Ouch … error while writing audio data: : Broken pipe

I am running the latest HEAD version and fedora core 2. What is strange is that I never used to get this problem and asterisk would start up fine.

When searching the digium mailing lists i see this:

lists.digium.com/pipermail/aster … 08337.html

This thread suggests that mpg123 is stopping asterisk from starting. I can verify that this may well be the case because when i look at the running process after trying to start asterisk i can see mpg123. Every time i attempt to start asterisk i see another mpg123 process.

It is extreamly frustrating and any help in getting this working would be highly appreciated.

Thanks for your consideration.


Hello, fixed this problem, it had nothing with mpg123, i had to stop pbx_wilcalu.so from starting in modules.conf and asterisk now boots. Any one know what this file is responsible for and why it stopts asterisk?
