problem configuring Wildcard X100P FXO card with Asterisk

I can load the drivers ok:

modprobe zaptel
modprobe wcfxo
modprobe wcfxs

but then when I run /sbin/ztcfg -vv, I get:

root@UbuntuBox1:/etc# /sbin/ztcfg -vv

Zaptel Configuration
======================


Channel map:

Channel 01: FXS Kewlstart (Default) (Slaves: 01)

1 channels configured.

Changing signalling on channel 1 from Unused to FXS Kewlstart
ZT_CHANCONFIG failed on channel 1: Inappropriate ioctl for device (25)


My question is, what does "Inappropriate ioctl for device (25)" mean, and how can I fix it?

Thanks,
Marc

You are running the wrong version of zaptel. Zaptel 1.4 is designed to work with asterisk 1.4

Install zaptel 1.2.22 from http://downloads.digium.com/pub/zaptel/ and that should hopefully fix the problem.

For some reasons it's trying to put your FXO card to FXS mode.

I just googled and this popped up as the first link
http://www.voip-info.org/wiki/index.php?page=Asterisk+config+zaptel.conf

You need to edit zaptel.conf and comment out all the hardware configs not related to fxsks=1

/etc/zaptel.conf:
fxsks=1

/etc/asterisk/zapata.conf:
echocancel=yes
usecallerid=yes
context=incoming
signalling=fxs_ks
group = 2
channel => 1

Thats correct. A FXO interface uses FXS signalling and vice-versa.

Can you post the contents of your zaptel.conf file. I wouldnt just set it to the single line posted above as other configuration lines are important aswell such as the zones. If they are set incorrectly then the card will have problems detecting ringing and engaged tones for example.

Can you also post the output from the 'lspci' command.

Sorry, I should have posted the conf files originally. Here they are, plus the lspci output.

> For some reasons it's trying to put your FXO card to FXS mode.
Do you think this because it says "Changing signalling on channel 1 from Unused to FXS Kewlstart"? I thought it should say FXS here because the channel is FXS.

It has found the card ok.

From your command prompt I assume you have manually installed zaptel/asterisk and are not using trixbox or asterisknow?
What versions of asterisk and zaptel do you have installed?

Does asterisk work with the card or is the error stopping it from working correctly?

Yes, I am using straight Asterisk, version 1.2.24.
Zaptel version is 1.4.5.1

Asterisk does not seem to be working with the card. If I try to place an outbound call, I get:

Nov 28 21:05:51 WARNING[23206]: channel.c:2621 ast_request: No channel type registered for 'Zap'
Nov 28 21:05:51 NOTICE[23206]: app_dial.c:1076 dial_exec_full: Unable to create channel of type 'Zap' (cause 66 - Channel not implemented)

Thanks grblades (again).  

This may sound dumb, but I never realized the Zaptel version numbers corresponded to the Asterisk version numbers; I just thought I was supposed to get the latest of each.

I really appreciate your help.
