dahdi_dummy is the timing only dahdi driver for olver versions of asterisk. It's not needed on intel as newer dahdi doesn't need it. On the RPi or ARM platforms it's really useful.

Unfortunately John David McGough, KB4FXC of Internet Technologies, Inc has taken this code, removed the author and renamed it as part of the pirated software known as HamVoIP.


I don't care, I just want this to work on ASL 1.01!

Ok, here's the skinny on how to make this work on an ASL 1.01 system.

  1. ensure your system is up and going, with the kernel pinned per the readme


Support Files about this

First email about this from september 2019

It looks like John David has renamed dummy to hrtimer, dummy is designed to
provide good timing on systems lacking dahdi hardware.   I've attached strings
of his module and the dummy one I built today, they are virtually identical.

Please test this if you have asl1.01 on a rpi.

Simply building this seems to fix any studering on asl 1.01 running on a RPi3:

After insmod of dummy module.

Here it is on an intel server running a pci_radio card:

It's identical.

To build as root:
# cd /usr/src/asl-dahdi-linux-2.11.1/linux
# export MODULES_EXTRA='dahdi_dummy'
# make
# insmod /usr/src/asl-dahdi-linux-2.11.1/linux/drivers/dahdi/dahdi_dummy.ko

# lsmod |grep dahdi
dahdi_dummy             3432  0
dahdi                 229561  35 dahdi_dummy
crc_ccitt               1771  1 dahdi

you will need to do dahdi_genconf and then dahdi_cfg.  ASL1.01 is missing this
in the service script that starts asterisk.  It needs to be added.
Restart asterisk
#service asterisk restart

# dahdi_scan
