[asterisk-users] Possible Dahdi compile problem

I am having problems with system crashes in a dahdi/asterisk compile.  The is on a Beaglebone Black running Debian 3.8.13 kernel.

Dahdi is patched and asterisk is also custom so this must be compiled from source. I believe I have the proper header and source files for the running kernel. Both dahdi and asterisk compile and install. When run asterisk runs for anywhere from 10 minutes to a half hour or more and crashes. This is a complete system crash requiring a reboot. There are no indications of why it crashed. No messages and analyzing memory and other parameters before the crash show nothing unusual. 

 This same package arrangement works fine on several other platforms so I discount a problem in the code.

On thing that may give a clue is that when dahdi is installed it creates and puts its modules in  /lib/modules/3.8.13   The system modules are in /lib/modules/3.8.13-bone43   - the bone43 is the patched 3.8.13 kernel for the Beagle Black. The patches are installed in the sources but dahdi insists on putting the modules in 3.8.13  and they are not found there.

I have to mv  /lib/modules/3.8.13/dahdi  to /lib/modules/3.8.13-bone43  and then do a  depmod -a 3.8.13-bone43

Then dahdi installs. I do not use any dahdi modules so no modules install.

In asterisk I get the following -

beaglebone*CLI> dahdi show status
Description                              Alarms     IRQ        bpviol     CRC4  

beaglebone*CLI> dahdi show channels
   Chan Extension  Context         Language   MOH Interpret
 pseudo            default                    default

If dahdi installs and at least appears to work with asterisk does that mean that it is compiled correctly? I am trying to figure out what might be causing this problem.
