Maybe you heard already about that OpenWengo thing. OpenWengo is a community of Free Software enthusiasts. The OpenWengo community is sponsored by Wemgo, a French SIP provider, itself backed by Neuf Cegetel, a French telco. WengoPhone, a SIP compliant VoIP client and a multiprotocol instant messanger (MSN, AIM, ICQ, Jabber, Google Talk). We’re talkig here about WengoPhone NG (Next Generation) which is the version in development.

Currently I’m working on a RPM package for WengoPhone NG. I’ve written some patches to build it on x86_64 and to fix some bugs to build it on SUSE. The problem is that I can’t link the application at the moment cause SUSE doesn’t provide libQtUiTools in their QT4 packages (SUSE LINUX 10.1 and factory). To drop it at the build service a bug fix for the boost package is needed too.

I hope that my patches will be in SVN soon and that SUSE will fix the packages. I don’t want to create a fixed QT4 package 🙂

Update: WengoPhone has been renamed to QuteCom in 2005. The project is dead in the meantime.

  1. Hi!

    I am looking for a way to make VoIP video calls from my openSuSE 10.2 PC with any other PC running windows, and openwengo/wengophone seems to be the best way. Thus, I am very interested in your project. Did you make any effort in building RPMs for SuSE? I tried the Wengo NG 2.0 binaries, but they seem not to be very stable.

    Or can you suggest any other SIP or phone client with video capabilities? I tried Ekiga as well, but the MS Windows version seems to be too unstable to use (I mean – I have to convince people of using another program than Skype, which works fine on Windows … but lacks video capabilities on Linux).

    Greetings,

  2. Hi,

    there is no release yet, we’re still working on WengoPhone 2.1. There are some problems with ALSA and some bugs on x86_64. As soon as they are fixed, I wil provide a RPM for openSUSE.

  3. That sounds great. Would you suggest using Wengo Classic meanwhile? And is there a binary for openSuSE 10.2? I’ve read that there are some issues with wengo classic on SuSE …

    Whenever there is a working Linux (with sound …) and Windows release candidate, I would like to test the 2.0/2.1 versions … They are ready when they are ready, I suppose. What do you think: When will this happen?

    Thanks for your great work on wengo!

    Eriol
