Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 188260
Avahi support omitted from Ekiga
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:11:29 EST
Description of problem:
The ekiga.spec file includes an explicit --disable-avahi switch to ./configure.
I think with the official 2.0 release and with avahi integration in FC5, this
switch is no longer necessary.
Also the d-bus support is disabled by default (altough I am not sure what it does).
I have modified the spec file, recompiled ekiga, and the avahi support is working.

It is not needed for normal operations - it just allows the user to see other

server. I think it is OK to switch avahi on in the next release.
Fixed in rawhide with version 2.0.2 of Ekiga,
