DAHDI Telephony Interface Driver
=================================
Asterisk Development Team <asteriskteam@digium.com>
$Revision$, $Date$

DAHDI stands for Digium Asterisk Hardware Device Interface. This
package contains the userspace tools to configure the kernel modules
included in the package dahdi-linux.

Build Requirements
------------------
This package needs the headers from dahdi-linux. Thus you should install
dahdi-linux before building dahdi-tools.

Build System
~~~~~~~~~~~~
gcc and friends. Generally you will need to install the package gcc.
There may be cases where you will need a specific version of gcc to build
kernel modules.


Extra Libraries
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Some libraries are needed for extra utilities that are provided with
DAHDI.

- libusb is needed for building fpga_load, needed for firmware loading of
the Xorcom Astribank.
- libnewt is needed to build the optional but useful utility dahdi_tool.


Installation
~~~~~~~~~~~~
Note: If using `sudo` to build/install, you may need to add /sbin to your PATH.
----------------------------------
./configure
# optional step: select custom configuration:
#make menuselect
make
make install
# To install init scripts and config files:
#make config
----------------------------------


Build Tweaks
~~~~~~~~~~~~
Partial Build/Install
^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^
There are some make targets that are provided to build or install just
parts of DAHDI:

. Build targets:
- make: Build DAHDI userspace programs. partial
targets of it:
* make 'utilname': builds 'utilname' alone (e.g: `make dahdi_diag`)
* make utils: Build libtonezone.
* make libs: Build libtonezone.
. Install targets:
- make install: Installs user space tools into /usr/sbin/ (TODO - list
partial targets)
- make config: should be run once to configure


Installation to a Subtree
^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^
The following may be useful when testing the package or when preparing a
package for a binary distribution (such as an rpm package) installing
onto a subtree rather than on th real system.

make install DESTDIR=targetdir

This can be useful for any partial install target from the list above.


Options For ./configure
^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^
The configure script various several tests and based on them generates
some files ( build_tools/menuselect-deps and makeopts). You can pass it
--with options and variable settings, for instance:

./configure --without-ncurses CC="gcc-4.10"

If you just want to recreate the same files without a full detection
run, use:

./config.status

To re-run ./configure with the same parameters it was run with last
time, use:

./ocnfig.status --recheck


Configuration
-------------
Configuration for DAHDI resides under /etc/dahdi .

/etc/dahdi/system.conf
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
The main method to configure DAHDI devices is using the utility
*dahdi_cfg*. dahdi_cfg reads data from the configuration file
/etc/dahdi/system.conf , figures out what configuration to send to
channels, and send it to the kernel.

A sample annotated system.conf is included in this directory and
installed by default. Edit it to suit your configuration. Alternatively
use the script dahdi_genconf to generate one that should work with your
system. Note that while dahdi_genconf will generate a working configuration,
it will not automatically detect hardware echo cancellation modules. These
will have to be enabled manually in system.conf.

/etc/dahdi/init.conf
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
The configuration file of the dahdi init.d script is
/etc/dahdi/init.conf . That file is used to override defaults that are
set at the beginning of the init.d script.

Reference Configuration
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Sample system.conf
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
include::system.conf.asciidoc[]


Sample init.conf
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
include::init.conf.asciidoc[]


Sample genconf_parameters
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
FIXME: still not properly formatted.

include::genconf_parameters.asciidoc[]


Tonezones
~~~~~~~~~
The file zonedata.c contains the information about the tone zones used
in libtonezone (and hence also in ztcfg). Here is a list of those zones:

include::tonezones.txt[]


DAHDI PERL modules
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
The directory xpp has, in addition to helper utilities for the
Xorcom Astribank, a collection of perl modules to provide information
related to DAHDI. The perl modules themselves are under xpp/perl_modules/ .
In xpp/ there are several utilities that use those modules:
- xpp-specific: dahdi_registration, xpp_sync, xpp_blink .
- General: lsdahdi, dahdi_genconf, dahdi_hardware, dahdi_drivers

The DAHDI perl modules will currently only be automatically installed if you
happen to install the xpp directory. Those utilities require the perl modules
to be installed, however they will also look for them in the directory
perl_modules, and thus can be run directly from the DAHDI source tree. For
example:

./xpp/dahdi_hardware -v

To get usage information on a program, you can also use perldoc
(sometimes provided in a package separate from perl itself). For
instance:

perldoc ./xpp/lsdahdi

Some of them are specific for the Xorcom Astribank and described in its
docuemntation. the others are:

lsdahdi::
A somewhat glorified `cat /proc/dahdi/*`.
dahdi_genconf::
Generates configuration based on the existing DAHDI channels and on
/etc/dahdi/genconf_parameters (replaces genzaptelconf as well).
dahdi_drivers::
A two-liner script (not installed by default) that simply returns the
modules that should be modprobed on this system.
dahdi_hardware::
Uses the information from sysfs and its own knowledge to show
what PCI/USB DAHDI hardware is connected and if it is currently used
by a driver. Shows also some more information for Astribanks from
/proc/xpp .


PPP Support
~~~~~~~~~~~
DAHDI digital cards can provide data channels through ppp as
point-to-point connections. This requires a plugin to the ppp daemon
that is included in the ppp/ subdirectory. To install it:

1. Make sure you have the PPP source / headers installed. On Debian:

apt-get install ppp-dev

2. Run 'make' on the ppp subdirectory:

make -C ppp
make -C ppp install

3. Make sure your kernel has support for both PPP (which is common is
distribution kernels and for HDLC (much less common) - CONFIG_PPP and
CONFIG_HDLC .
