[sip-comm-dev] Problem to launch SIP Communicator


#1

Hi,

I installed sip-communicator-1.0-alpha3-nightly.build.1139.exe in JRE 1.6.0 environment.
When I launch it, a windows appears displaying different loading:
Contact List Services Interfaces, ICQ Protocol Provider, SSH ... until Notifications
The windows disappears and nothing else.

In my opinion, sip-communicator <sip-communicator-1.0-alpha3-nightly.build.1139.exe> doesn't run because the servers are not found, isn't it ?
How to configure the loading before launching SIP Communicator ?

Regards,
Patricia Marreau.

Hello to all

I have successfully been working with SIP-Communicator for some time,
but always on Windows.

I'm trying to run it on Linux now but I always get that message saying
that it can not be installed because it can't find the alsa-oss.

But documentation on alsa says that all kernels after 2.6.xxx have alsa
included, and I have tried my installations on fedora 9, and red hat
Enterprise Server 4, which have the more recent kernels.

My HW is a HP xw4300 Desktop workstation.

So my questions are:

Which Linux Distribution do you have successfully used and recommend?

Does it come with the alsa-oss ?

Best Regards and thanks

Carlos

alsa-oss is an ALSA wrapper for OSS providing sound for software still using OSS (it was a Linux sound system before ALSA). It doesn't come with kernel so you should install it by yourself. In Debian:

# apt-get install alsa-oss

If still doesn't work check if you have support for it in kernel:

akoo@localhost:~$ zcat /proc/config.gz | grep OSS
# CONFIG_CHR_DEV_OSST is not set
CONFIG_SND_OSSEMUL=y
CONFIG_SND_MIXER_OSS=y
CONFIG_SND_PCM_OSS=y
CONFIG_SND_PCM_OSS_PLUGINS=y
CONFIG_SND_SEQUENCER_OSS=y

Cheers,
Maciej

Hey Patricia,

The notification service is the last to load before the user interface
so the splash screen is actually expected to disappear after it. What's
curious is the fact that you don't see the UI after it disappears. Here
are a few suggestions that may help:

* SIP Communicator has a systray module and it may actually start
minimized in there if that's how you closed it one of the previous times
you used it. I know that windows hides some of its systray icons so you
may want to have a look in there and see if you can find the SIP
Communicator icon.

* If there's a problem with the systray module, and the application is
minimized then there would be no way for you to restore it. In this case
you'd have to reinitialize your SC instance so that it would not start
minimized any more. The easiest way to do this would be to simply delete
our configuration directory which is $HOME/.sip-communicator, which on
windows would give you something like C:\Documents and
settings\Patricia\.sip-communicator

Let me know if neither of these works
Cheers
Emil

Hi Carlos,

You need the alsa-oss package of your distribution, not only the alsa-oss module of your kernel. In example on Debian, you can install it on typing: "apt-get install alsa-oss".

Hope this helps,
Vincent

Do you have a webcam attached? On one of my computer a buggy Logitech driver causes java to hang for aprox. 2 minutes, before it crashes and sc does not start with this webcam attached.

I also have trouble with the loading of SC. And its when SC check the
devices (see in Eclipse)... but after 2 min (or if I launch a second
instance of SC) SC start...

I have also seen problems when I use hibernation mode with XP, the computer
don't turn off and it display that my webcam is the problem. Maybe there are
a connection...
