Yes I have a link somewhere with Suse RPMs.
I have no news from the creator, but I'll add Suse RPMs on
for the next release.

H.323 doesn't permit that. GnomeMeeting already chooses the right codec,
but the only common codec between GnomeMeeting and Netmeeting is G.711
which is of bad quality in terms of bandwidth. That is why we have to
make people add artificially MS-GSM to Netmeeting. There is no other
way, except paying the licences fees to include the Netmeeting codecs into
OpenH323 and GnomeMeeting...
