    Hello,

    I tried to setup a conference after quite some time having the server, however it seems like it's not working properly.
    I did search google and it appears to be an old bug, however I am running the latest versions (as per elastix basic/updates repos.

    When I am dialling the conference number I'm getting the prompt that "this is not a valid conference number'
    The error in the logs is:
    --
    WARNING[26089] app_meetme.c: Unable to open pseudo device
    --

    Google information points out issues with dahdi. I have never done before anything related to dahdi as I don't have any extra hardware (sip only).

    when I run lsmod |grep dahdi I get nothing.

    I was thinking of removing dadhi and reinstalling it (yum erase dahdi) however this wants to erase almost everything related to Elastix, so I stopped right there! :eek:

    Any suggestions what to do without ending up with a useless system?

    Many thanks,
    N

    Hi, you just need dahdi dummy, try in the web console a hardware Detection an check replace dahdi_channel.conf, after that try dahdi_cfg -vvvvvvvvvvvvvv and lsdahdi.

    Thank you for the reply.

    I tried the HW detection (it lasted quite a bit).
    I then tried dahdi_cfg -vvvvvvvvvvvvvv

    and the result:
    -----
    DAHDI Tools Version - 2.2.0
    Notice: Configuration file is /etc/dahdi/system.conf
    line 0: Unable to open master device '/dev/dahdi/ctl'

    1 error(s) detected
    -----

    I then tried lsdahdi and the response was nothing (just the prompt). No errors no nothing.

    I realised that the directory /etc/dahdi does not exist, so I created it and tried again everything. Same thing, no change.

    Also, the file /etc/dahdi/system.conf is completely blank (empty).


    Any more ideas?
    :(

    Download the Dahdi packages for asterisk website and compile then do the web config replacement and it worked.
    Make sure to have your kernel sources and gcc installed to compile.

    I downloaded http://repo.elastix.org/elastix/1/base/ ... -6.src.rpm and tried to install the sources but I received the following error:

    rpm -Uvh dahdi-2.2.0.2-6.src.rpm
    warning: dahdi-2.2.0.2-6.src.rpm: Header V3 DSA signature: NOKEY, key ID d05c057c
    1:dahdi ########################################### [100%]

    How do I bypass it?

    I did not use the rpm, I compiled it. you can download it from http://www.asterisk.org/downloads or you can add --nogpgcheck if you want to use the rpm. yum -y localinstall --nogpgcheck dahdi-2.2.0.2-6.src.rpm
