Well, it seems like I’ve been posting on here for help way too often, but for some reason, issues keep coming up.
I have two X100P cards in the box, one for incoming and one for outgoing. There were issues with incoming callers not being able to understand what anyone was saying, it was garbled. If I called in on the outgoing line, everything was fine.
Incoming calls to the main line would sometimes be dropped or sometimes pause for a long time before the IVR kicked in.
I was beginning to think it was the card, so I switched the two cards around(as in swapped PCI slots). After that, no calls worked. I switched them back, still nothing.
If I call on the main line now, nothing happens and the call never goes through. If I call into the outgoing line, it rings, but asterisk doesn’t see any activity. When trying to make an outbound call, it would show a chanunavail message.
I tried running genzaptelconf, but it said it could not load zone “us”. I couldn’t get it working, so I updated zaptel, zaptel-modules, and asterisk through yum.
After that, I think I’m in deeper water than before.
When trying to run genzaptelconf now, I get
"line 0: Unable to open master device ‘/dev/zap/ctl’".
I saw some people mentioning udev, so I tried everything that I saw being suggested to other people, like editing the udev permissions and rules. Nada.
Lsmod shows no zaptel modules loaded, and asterisk shows no channels. I can’t modprobe zaptel modules and “service zaptel start” can’t find the modules either.
Can someone point me towards a possible cause? I realize the card may be bad, but need to get the other one working at least.
