ekiga -d 4 logfile corresponding to "Actual Results"

Description of problem:

Ekiga answers a phone call correctly when connected to the internal speakers of my laptop, but when used with an external bluetooth headset, it hangs.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

ekiga-3.2.7-1.fc13 (all other components also current F13 as of today)

How reproducible:


Steps to Reproduce:
1. Establish Bluetooth Connection with headset (tested with Sennheiser MM200)
2. Open "Sound Preferences" and swith Profile of headset to "Telephony Duplex (HSP/HFP)" and switch input and output to headset
3. Open ekiga, enter valid SIP account (tested with sip.arcor.de), wait for it to register
4. Call SIP provider from regular telephone
Actual results:

1. No ringtone in calling telephone, no incoming call ringtone in headset
2. Popup message indicates incoming call
3. After clicking "Accept", ringtone in calling telephone starts
4. ekiga hangs and must be killed manually

Expected results:

1. Ringtone in calling telephone
2. Popup message indicating incoming call, incoming call ringtone in headset
3. After clicking accept, phone connection is established

This works as expected as soon as, in "Sound Preferences", I switch back to the internal input/output devices

Additional info:

Hardware: Tested on Dell XPS M1330 with Intel 82801H (ICH8 Family) HD Audio Controller.  This machine has a known bug with the internal microphone


(unfixed for ages) which means that in order to use telephony on this machine, one has to get an external microphone working.

ekiga 3.3.0 beta release has support for PulseAudio so support for BT headsets should be much improved. This is currently in Fedora 15 rawhide if your have the ability to test it.

Comment 3 Bug Zapper 2011-06-02 11:28:21 UTC
This message is a reminder that Fedora 13 is nearing its end of life.
Approximately 30 (thirty) days from now Fedora will stop maintaining
and issuing updates for Fedora 13.  It is Fedora's policy to close all
bug reports from releases that are no longer maintained.  At that time
this bug will be closed as WONTFIX if it remains open with a Fedora 
'version' of '13'.

Package Maintainer: If you wish for this bug to remain open because you
plan to fix it in a currently maintained version, simply change the 'version' 
to a later Fedora version prior to Fedora 13's end of life.

Bug Reporter: Thank you for reporting this issue and we are sorry that 
we may not be able to fix it before Fedora 13 is end of life.  If you 
would still like to see this bug fixed and are able to reproduce it 
against a later version of Fedora please change the 'version' of this 
bug to the applicable version.  If you are unable to change the version, 
please add a comment here and someone will do it for you.

Although we aim to fix as many bugs as possible during every release's 
lifetime, sometimes those efforts are overtaken by events.  Often a 
more recent Fedora release includes newer upstream software that fixes 
bugs or makes them obsolete.

The process we are following is described here: 

Comment 4 Bug Zapper 2011-06-27 17:52:07 UTC
Fedora 13 changed to end-of-life (EOL) status on 2011-06-25. Fedora 13 is 
no longer maintained, which means that it will not receive any further 
security or bug fix updates. As a result we are closing this bug.

If you can reproduce this bug against a currently maintained version of 
Fedora please feel free to reopen this bug against that version.

Thank you for reporting this bug and we are sorry it could not be fixed.
