It seems to be right for the quicknet driver. Just to be sure, could you
give the output of the command 'cat /proc/ixj'.

You said you have GnomeMeeting v0.96. Since v0.96 GM can detect
automatically with Druid menu. So be sure you run Gnomemeeting from an X

I don't how rpm's based system controls the dependency but here is what
I get from Debian (thanks to the maintainer):

As you can see, there is a lots of packages need to be installed.

Espcially, please check if the libraries below are also installed:

  - libxml
  - libopenh323
  - libpt

Could you start a normal X session with Gnome ?

% I have just installed X on the machine in question.

% Previously it did not have X installed.

I don't know if the time delay in voice conversation (between 150 and
350 ms) is still repected in a VNC session.

If your workstation is a Linux system (or FreeBSD alike), it could be
simple to use GM on this machine and let your gateway does its job
properly: routing/forwarding.

Did you mean Gnome couldn't start ?
