[sip-comm-dev] Little problems on Mac OS 10.3


#1

Hi all,

I'm new to this mailing-list so please consider me as a total newbie when it
comes to SIP Communicator... and don't shoot me for this post ;o). (If you
wanna shoot somebody for posting this, shoot emcho, he forced me to do so
;-P).

I installed SIP Communicator on my mother's computer last week-end as she
needed an SIP client. She's running a Mac OS 10.3 computer, and I used an
installer (can't tell exactly which one it was). The installation worked
without a hitch, but in the end, I couldn't lauch SIP Communicator. I tried
to launch the run.sh script directly, but it failed, so I soon realized the
problem was coming from the environment variable defining the path to the
java binary location: it was pointing to "opt" instead of "usr" on this
system. What's more, the script couldn't execute correctly because of wrong
line-terminating caracters (but this conversion problem should be
double-checked since it might come from the text editor I used to edit the
file on this system).

. IMHO, it would be better to replace this variable with a variable pointing
directly on the binary, using something like: export JAVA_BIN=`which java` .
Is there a special reason why this variable wasn't set this way (portability
issue maybe)?

. This modification enables to launch SIP Communicator by hand (sh run.sh),
but it still doesn't work when simply clicking on the directory. I added the
".app" extension to the directory containing SIP Communicator, but it still
doesn't work. I guess I missed something? I'm not very familiar with MacOS
and its .app directory tree.

. I couldn't manage to establish an SIP communication (outgoing as well as
incoming). It rings, but when accepting the call, I get a "failed!" popup
and the following console output (should I post the outputs at the end of
the mail or as attachments next time?) :

I'm afraid I forgot to catch the output when initiating a call, but I'll add
that next time. Is this a "normal" output (maybe caused by a badly
configured router)?

As you noticed, my descriptions are quite vague since I was really in a
hurry when I did all this (I spent only one night at my mum's place), so I
couldn't dig deeper (especially check the router/NAT). I'm in Germany at the
moment, so I won't be able to give more information or to test anything.
I'll be back there next week-end.

Cheers,
Chris (onibaku on java.net).

Hi Chris,

Since you're having problems with the Mac package, let's all shoot
Romain ;-).

Actually, are you using the MacOSX specific package?

to launch the run.sh script directly, but it failed, so I soon realized the

This makes me think you are using the generic installer. The MacOSX package does not have such script.

Please try a package from:
