|Description:||I have installed versions 22.214.171.124 through 126.96.36.199 of asterisk with versions 2.2.0 through 2.2.1 (yes, I've done quite a few installs) and in each and every one of them, after a fresh install I receive an error like:|
[Feb 20 19:49:10] ERROR: codec_dahdi.c:622 find_transcoders: Failed to open /dev/dahdi/transcode: No such file or directory
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.
