They have a package 

with an installer inside (install.sh), but it is turned as full installer :
- download and install  dahdi-linux-complete-2.5.0+2.5.0.tar.gz
- seems makes some compilation for the driver 
- finishes by proposing to install asterisk 

As I installed AsteriskNOW before, it makes no sense to install Asterisk again, I just need to install the driver

In the package I can found src folders, but I don't know how to use them to build the module manually.
The installer seems building allog4c.ko file but it doesn't works installed by this script

I guess it is just a basic operation to know how to compile the module and load it every time the system boots
Then how to configure the channels " chan_allogsm" ..

Thanks for help :-)
