Asterisk 1.2 and chan cellphone
This morning, I accidently found http://bugs.digium.com/view.php?id=8919. It’s a patch for Asterisk 1.4 that adds a channel for a cellphone FXO trunk. I haven’t tried miax (http://www.voip-info.org/wiki-Mobile+IAX) or chan_bluetooth (http://crazygreek.co.uk/content/chan_bluetooth) right now, but I’ve heard that both of them are causing big problems. chan_cellphone looks promising as it will directly add a “CELL”-channel. However, this patch is for the SVN-trunk (Asterisk 1.4) and everything I’ve found about using it in Asterisk 1.2 was “Not possible”. I really don’t want to believe such things. So I just grabbed the source and changed the code in order to compile chan_cellphone solely as a channel driver (as chan_capi does) and using Asterisk 1.2. I’m really happy: It compiled! chan_cellphone compiles successfully without warnings any more for my Debian backports Asterisk 1.2 installation! But I haven’t tried it yet if it will also work successfully. I even don’t have a Bluetooth module at the moment. If you’re interested in the patch please feel free to ask me! In the meantime I’ll try to get a Bluetooth dongle for trying it out.
