Has Fedora *ever* had a functional soft-phone? I ask this because I
have tried many, and none of them *ever* worked -- in the usual sense
that one would expect a phone to work, ie. not hanging or crashing or
dropping calls or having massive opaque configurations.
I've successfully used Twinkle for the last three or four years,
despite its bitrot and lack of updates from upstream. I *once* had
Ekiga working, but it gave me so many problems a few years ago that I
had given up on it. Sounds like it's time to get it working again, or
try to get some of the next generation open-source softphones
compiling for Fedora and then packaged.
I'm now using a Polycom IP phone and it's great. Just works.
I ever spent (Red Hat bought it for me).
I have a whole zoo of hardware IP phones (and am willing to donate
phones to a good home!) too, but I spend enough time on the road that
a softphone is nice to have as well.
