I am using Debian Lenny and I have also tried installing on Ubuntu Karmic

Do you actually have a transcoder card?

No I don't.

I found the error to be rather cyptic so I did not realize it corresponded to a missing transcoder card. How can I disable the lookup for that module?

IIRC the argument for keeping this message is that if you do have a card, a missing module would be much harder to trace.

alexrecarey:  Add "noload => codec_dahdi.so" to your modules.conf if you don't expect to use any hardware transcoders.

I'm going to close this issue for now. If you have any additional issues or questions regarding this issue please use the asterisk-users mailing list. Thanks!
