Description:Most of the features now are independent of dahdi for a timing source now that there is kernel timing available. app_page.c is still dependent upon dahdi and meetme because it uses meetme to merge the channels. It would be better to remove that dependency if dahdi is not installed since there is still a timing source and confbridge can be used. The recording feature isn't available in confbridge but building without dahdi and meetme should be able to exclude that option if those dependencies don't exist.  It would be better to have a page function available without dahdi and meetme rather than making the application not work at all.

I've reworded your subject after discussions with Russell. The proposal would really be that, because MeetMe() is probably going to continue using DAHDI timing, that app_page should just use ConfBridge() which should be pretty straight forward. While this is actually a feature request that we don't have on the issue tracker, but this is a reasonable request.

Leif, thanks for modifying it as appropriate!  Rob

This functionality was already added in Trunk, to be released in Asterisk 11.
