sflphone
« on: July 07, 2013, 12:11:29 pm »

Being embarrassed by all my requests for new packages, but not having much luck with linphone, I tried to install sflphone, which seems to have some good reviews.  I downloaded the rpm and tried rpm2tgz and that didn't work.  I tried from source and that didn't work.../configure blew up complaining of a dbus error.  I tried vpackager (for the first time) and, though it went a long way and produced a sflphone.SlackBuild, I couldn't get past some kind of a communication or contact error at, I believe, line 127.

So, here I am again, asking for a new package.  Twinkle works well, but is cumbersome to use.  Linphone 3.6.1, with "subscribe=0" works well but the contacts are hard to use and as it defaults to "subscribe=1" linphonerc has to be corrected periodically so that "subscribe=0." Also video doesn't work on my system. Nonetheless, Linphone is very useful and I use it constantly. 

It would be great if VL had a better sip phone in its repositories.

Thanks.  I got an "unable to initialize error. Make sure the Daemon is running" error in a little box.  Here is what is shown in the command window:

I went to the untested repository and installed from there.  I don't believe sflphone is yet in testing.

I mean do you install it manually using installpkg/upgradepkg or via gslapt/slapt-get?

Open /etc/slapt-get/slapt-getrc in an editor as root. Add ONE of the following two lines to it, according to whether you're running 32- or 64-bit:

#DISABLED=http://vlcore.vectorlinux.com/pkg/untested/veclinux-7.0/x86/:CUSTOM
or
#DISABLED=http://vlcore.vectorlinux.com/pkg/untested/veclinux-7.0/x86_64/:CUSTOM

I like to put it just below the first line for "testing", but its placement doesn't matter. You'll want it somewhat near the top, though.

To enable it, same as always:  gslapt > edit > preferences > sources tab > select it   then reload as suggested.

Naturally, you'll want to grab what you want, then disable and reload again.

Make sure that the packages you're after are still actually in this repo -- after a certain amount of time, they're removed. If they've been removed, ask for a rebuild. Use your web browser to look; gslapt will list it regardless if it's on your computer.

If the package is there, uninstall, then install using gslapt. The dependencies should be picked up.

Thank you roarde.  That did the trick.

hata_ph,

I still get the error:
