You should send us the -d 4 output of both ends, you are probably hit by
"packet greater than 1500 bytes" bug.

ekiga should have been compiled with libnotify devel package.  If not,
you could however press the green phone icon to accept the call.

How have you obtained ekiga package?  From OpenSUSE repository or have
