Re: [Ekiga-list] Newbie, help: Account mgmt problems

Thanks for your reply!

As for the data corruption issues, this seems to happen iff I leave the field "Authentication User" blank in the Edit Account dialog. If I fill this (with same vale as User) data is not corrupted and Ekiga runs fine. So, I don't have any blocking errors for the time being. But the presence stuff still seems a little odd e. g., Ekiga displays an account as Registered despite a login failure.

I've started a thread on Fedora Forum to see if there are Fedora users having similar problems. No luck so far.

I'll try your recipe, and look a little more into this. Not this evening, though ;-) Stay tuned..

If you can do this,it may help to resolve:
 - ekiga-config-tool --clean
 - ekiga-config-tool --fix-permissions
 - ekiga-config-tool --clean-schemas
 - ekiga-config-tool --install-schemas

--Disable the STUN support while running the configuration wizard; --Make 2 new sip accounts and while running the configuration wizard,register with one of the new users. --Add a sip account to ekiga with authentication user being the same as user name. If this doesn't help, probably there might be some library to be installed to keep the values in the respective fields. I have been able to run Ekiga 3.0.2 with H264 enabled on Ubuntu 8.10,8.04 without any similar issues.

    First of all I should add that I'm on Fedora/X86_64.

    Did the ekiga-config-tool thing. After a reinstall, and disabling
    the stun server,  there is only two accounts: my ekiga account and
    an account at <>.
    Situation after a Chat | Quit + restart:

    - The data for both accounts is corrupted (password moved to
     "Authentication User",  Password + Timeout set to random values).

    - The account is presented as "Registered" despite that it isn't
    logged in at the
     server  (I can verify this on the server side  for the
    mysecretary account).

    - Invoking the Account | Edit Account dialog with correct,
    unchanged data
     effectively toggles the account between Registered and Unregistered.

    - With data OK, successfully logged in to
    <> and making
     a Chat | Quit the server does not understand that the client is
    disconnected (still
     presented as present/logged in by server). Possibly a server issue?

    - The server eventually understands that the client has
    disconnected after the
     timeout specified fot the account.

    I have a feeling that there are at least two things here: data
    corruption and presence mgmt. But, I'm a newbie and should thus
    not have any feelings ;-)

        Try purging the configuration totally (ekiga-config-tool
        --clean) and
        start from scratch. There is no known bug corrupting the
        accounts data.
