You want to install the drivers for your DAHDI-based hardware.
Download the latest DAHDI drivers with tools. DAHDI is available for download from: http://downloads.digium.com/pub/telephony/dahdi-linux-complete
# wget http://downloads.digium.com/pub/telephony/dahdi-linux-complete/dahdi-linux-complete-current.tar.gz
Expand the downloaded file, compile its contents, and install the drivers and tools. Substitute the version of DAHDI for the X.X.X in the command lines below.
# tar -zxvf dahdi-linux-complete-current.tar.gz # cd dahdi-linux-complete-X.X.X+X.X.X # make # make install
DAHDI drivers for all models of hardware are now installed. Please refer to the user manual for your specific card model to determine how to configure and load the driver necessary to interface with Asterisk. The user manuals for all Digium hardware products are available in the Documentation section at http://www.digium.com/en/supportcenter/ .
If your installation has failed, it may be because you are missing one or more of the build dependencies, the kernel headers, or the development tools.
If you plan on using PRI signaling, then you will need to install libpri before compiling Asterisk. Instructions for installing libpri are available at Installing libpri.
Refer to the Installing Asterisk section for information on how to install Asterisk.
