Description:I am running Ubuntu Intrepid and Asterisk I cannot get a call either from Empathy to Asterisk or from Asterisk to Empathy to work via Jingle. Asterisk-to-Empathy produces the following in my logs:

[Jan 12 13:54:17] ERROR[15414] chan_gtalk.c: no gtalk capable clients to talk to.

while from Empathy to Asterisk produces:

[Jan 12 13:55:27] WARNING[32515] chan_gtalk.c: Capabilities don't match : us - 0x3f1fff (g723|gsm|ulaw|alaw|g726|adpcm|slin|lpc10|g729|speex|ilbc|g726aal2|g722|jpeg|png|h261|h263|h263p|h264), peer - 0x0 (nothing), combined - 0x0 (nothing)

This is with telepathy-gabble 0.7.16.

I was communicating with a telepathy developer, getting help debugging this issue. After looking at the log which I'm attaching, he couldn't see why asterisk wasn't accepting empathy's jigngle negotiation. He also felt that the code for gtalk channels wasn't terribly robust as it didn't check namespaces or whether tags were being open before closing, so I gather he felt that the problem was on asterisk's end. Google searches seem to indicate that at one point empathy was able to call asterisk, so I gather this is a regression on someone's part.

Attached is an empathy log of all XML network traffic.

Thanks blitzrage. It looks like the Mantis email notification still has problems for I did not receive any message.

Can you please try to set up a call with Asterisk 1.6 or SVN trunk? I remember I applied a fix to make Empathy 0.23.1 work with it a few monthes ago.

I don't know the corresponding telepathy-gabble version though.

Please also send us an Asterisk console debug output, thanks!

nolan: did you have any chance to test Empathy with later versions? Any Asterisk debug available?

No response from reporter for monthes, closing this one. Please reopen with more testing results and debug traces.
