DAHDI stands for Digium Asterisk Hardware Device Interface.
This package contains the kernel modules for DAHDI. For the required userspace tools see the package dahdi-tools.
The Asterisk development team is pleased to announce the first offical release of the Digium Asterisk Hardware Device Interface (DAHDI). The list of packages released today includes:
Both dahdi-linux and dahdi-tools are required to enable DAHDI support in your system. You will need to install dahdi-linux first, then dahdi-tools, and finally you can configure and make Asterisk. dahdi-linux-complete is both dahdi-linux and dahdi-tools combined into one download as a convenience. You still need libpri for PRI support with Asterisk if you are using DAHDI.
DAHDI is supported by Asterisk 1.4.22 and Asterisk 1.6.0. More detailed information about each of the packages is below.
This is the first release of the DAHDI Linux kernel modules package, which replaces the kernel modules from Zaptel. The primary purpose of this release is to rename the package from Zaptel but in addition to several bug fixes some of the new features are:
Echo cancelers can now be applied per channel and selected at configuration time.
Channel memory allocation changed from one large block into smaller blocks in order to reduce out of memory errors on a system that has been running for some time.
Layout changes to support binary packaging.
Neon MWI support added to the wctdm24xxp driver.
Dropped support for Linux Kernel 2.4 as well as the torisa and wcusb drivers.
