In console.conf.sample it says run the command “console list available”
CLI command.

It does not seem to be present:
console list available
No such command ‘console list available’

These are the only console commands I see:

console answer Answer an incoming console call
console autoanswer Sets/displays autoanswer
console dial Dial an extension on the console
console hangup Hangup a call on the console
console send text Send text to the remote device
console {mute|unmute} [toggle] Disable/Enable mic input

Is chan_console just a super set of chan_alsa?

In 1.4 Console/Dsp was ALSA, is Console/DSP now chan_console?
In 1.8 what do I use for ALSA?

Thanks,

Jerry
