Zaptel package installation

hi, I’m trying to install the zaptel package (debian unstable)
but I get the following error:
debian:~# apt-get install zaptel
Reading Package Lists… Done

Zaptel telephony kernel driver: FATAL: Module ztdummy not found.
Notice: Configuration file is /etc/zaptel.conf
line 0: Unable to open master device ‘/dev/zap/ctl’

1 error(s) detected

/sbin/ztcfg failed. Check /etc/zaptel.confzaptel.

He also says: Recommended packages: zaptel-modules
but that package doesn’t exist :s … age=zaptel

i would contact the package maintainer.

I managed to get a little further.
I can now load the module zaptel
so i do:

modprobe zaptel
modprobe wcfxo
modprobe ztdummy

but modprobe wcfxo gives the following error:
ZT_CHANCONFIG failed on channel 2: No such device or address (6)
FATAL: Error running install command for wcfxo

this is the output of lsmod | grep zaptel:
zaptel 229380 2 wcfxo,ztdummy
crc_ccitt 2432 1 zaptel

the relevant line in lspci:
0000:02:01.0 Communication controller: Motorola: Unknown device 5608

in zaptel.conf i have the following lines:

output of cat /proc/zaptel/1:
debian:~# cat /proc/zaptel/1
Span 1: ZTDUMMY/1 “ZTDUMMY/1 1”

when i start asterisk it fails with the following errors:

so another problem fixed :smile:
