Removes resolve check from Ekiga configure.
Comment 2 Hamlet 2017-10-02 00:30:37 UTC
This is how RedHat resolves the issue:

I have attached an equivalent patch for Gentoo ebuild net-voip/ekiga-4.0.1-r1.
Comment 3 Carl Michal 2017-11-15 14:56:29 UTC
The patch in comment 1 does the trick for me.
Comment 4 Max Steel 2017-11-20 10:30:48 UTC
Had the same Issue on my Machine. Patch #1 works for me.

Comment 5 Nico Baggus 2017-12-12 01:53:16 UTC
Current version doesn't build during emerge -e @world  needed for conversion to Gentoo 17.
Comment 6 Pavel Goran 2017-12-27 15:49:01 UTC
Why is it masked and planned for removal?
Comment 7 Pacho Ramos gentoo-dev 2017-12-27 16:09:08 UTC
Apart of its own issues, the issues with the opal and ptlib versions this needs to use like:

We are waiting years for upstream to finally release ekiga 5 and stop relying on the old versions of this libs (and many other old libs it is also requiring), but that release never comes. I also remember to have reported bugs in the past to it and they fixing it only in the unreleased master branch, not to the ekiga-4 one
Comment 8 Nico Baggus 2017-12-27 20:11:33 UTC
Pitty, as this was the last usable voip client.
Comment 9 Nico Baggus 2017-12-27 20:19:05 UTC
IMHO the project is dead, in 2015 Ekiga 5.0 was announced, last dev 
downloadable prerelease was from sep 19, 2016.
