Everything works fine, except voice calls with GTalk do not work.
It gives me the following error when I try to start a call:

(03:13:03 PM) Error creating session: Could not create the valve element
(03:13:03 PM) Error adding stream.
(03:13:04 PM) The call has been terminated.

I have gst-plugins-good, gst-plugins-bad, libjingle, farsight2 and gstreamer installed.
