Sangoma Inconsistancies with Latest Zaptel-1.4

I’m on a tight deadline and the last thing I need right now is kernel/Asterisk/Zaptel/Sangoma issues… This post may just help someone else save some time:

When running Sangoma’s Setup script from their wanpipe-2.3.4-7 release, the following error occurs when it tries to patch the latest zaptel (version 1.4 checked from SVN revision 2399):

Enable TDMV DCHAN Native HDLC Support & Patch Zaptel ? (y/n) y

Did NOT find the seached str:chan->writen\[chan->inwritebuf\] = amnt;
search_and_replace(zaptel-base.c) failed

Applying the following diff to Setup should solve the problem:

< #!/bin/sh
> #!/bin/bash
< ZAPTEL_C_SEARCH_STR="chan->writen\[chan->inwritebuf\] = amnt;"
> ZAPTEL_C_SEARCH_STR="chan->writen\[res\] = amnt;"
<                       chan->writen[chan->inwritebuf] = amnt;"
>                       chan->writen[res] = amnt;"

The change from sh to bash was to overcome the following error:

./Setup: 1014: Syntax error: Bad substitution

Finally, it looks like Sangoma’s current wanpipe will not work with linux-2.6.20.x:

/usr/src/wanpipe/kdrvtmp/sdla_xilinx.c:636:62: error: macro "INIT_WORK" passed 3 arguments, but takes just 2
/usr/src/wanpipe/kdrvtmp/sdla_xilinx.c: In function ‘wp_xilinx_init’:
/usr/src/wanpipe/kdrvtmp/sdla_xilinx.c:636: error: ‘INIT_WORK’ undeclared (first use in this function)
/usr/src/wanpipe/kdrvtmp/sdla_xilinx.c:636: error: (Each undeclared identifier is reported only once
/usr/src/wanpipe/kdrvtmp/sdla_xilinx.c:636: error: for each function it appears in.)

It works fine with linux-2.6.19.x.

I have let Sangoma’s support team know of these issues so hopefully they’ll be resolved before anyone has to actually use this post.

  1. Sangoma technical support came back to me regarding the kernel 2.6.19 vs. 2.6.20 issue:

    “We are familiar with compilation issue on kernel version 2.6.20, you can use our pre-release driver for this kernel. To download pre-release driver please visit .”

    They will investigate the Zaptel issue but as my version is from SVN, I expect they’ll have it fixed in good time for the next release.

  2. google rulz! thanks for the patch i couldnt get anything to work! even the beta as suggested.
