In dahdi-dkms package the wcte13xp driver is missing (it depends on oct612x driver). So Digium TE13x cards do not work unless the following lines are added to dkms.conf & drivers are rebuilt -

Same problem with Digium TE435 cards. I had to add build instructions for wcte43x and oct612x in dkms.conf to get it working.

Same problem with Digium TE121 cards which loaded the wcte12xp driver in the previous version, 1:2.10.2~dfsg-1ubuntu1 - reverted back to previous version until fix.

It's been over a year and this issue still exists. I would be very happy if someone could provide more guidance/instructions on how to do the "drivers are rebuilt" portion of this so that I could workaround the issue!

@tufelkinder You need to add those lines in dkms.conf in /usr/src/dahdi-2.10.2~dfsg-1ubuntu2/dkms.conf and then rebuild using

dkms build dahdi/2.10.2~dfsg-1ubuntu2

followed by

dkms install dahdi/2.10.2~dfsg-1ubuntu2

I don't remember the exact steps, but I think uninstall/remove using dkms may also be required. I can't play with the only live system I have :-)

^ I did find a "dkms remove dahdi/2.10.2~dfsg-1ubuntu1" to be necessary before building/installing. I think dkms thought it had already built the modules + didn't pick up my config changes.

I also had to modprobe wcte43x to get everything loaded that first time, probably because dkms won't load things into a running kernel. Worked fine after that!
