Description:I have asterisk installed on Debian Leni with dahdi-trunk and dahdi-tools-trunk working, however meetme complains that there are no dahdi channels, so recording  is disabled, and indeed dahdi show channels gives just the header-- no pseudo channels

From dahdi 2.4.0, internal timing is provided by the core dahdi module and dahdi_dummy isn't (normally) needed.  Your dahdi show channels is normal for that version.

What are your timing options in asterisk.conf?

I think you will also be expected to provide the actual console output.

dahdi version is trunk 9621 and internal_timing is set to yes in asterisk.conf.

Here are the actual lines from the log
[Jan 15 11:04:43] WARNING[8772] app_meetme.c: No DAHDI channel available for conference, user introduction disabled (is chan_dahdi loaded?)
[Jan 15 11:04:43] WARNING[8772] app_meetme.c: No DAHDI channel available for conference, conference recording disabled (is chan_dahdi loaded?)

Note also that the conference works i.e.  parties can hear/talk and even mute/unmute.  Just recording and user intro does not work.

Post the output of 'lsmod' from the shell and 'module show' from the asterisk CLI.

Well, after updating to dahdi-trunk as of early Saturday morning and asterisk as well, it is now working.  Very strange indeed.  I made sure to load dahdi-dummy, but this is supposed to not have an effect.
