using Empathy (telepathy-rakia) aka sofia-sip can never make a call successfully (emission) , tested with getonsip.com.

but when we call a sip account in empathy (reception), empathy shows a dialog with answer , abort buttons but when we answer there is no connection.

- SIP registration succeeds normally of course.

Additional info:
* version 0.8.0-1
* my debug log (attached)
This task depends upon

I can confirm this.
No matter which number im calling, it just rings for me, but not on the other side. Registration sucessful, as well.

please report upstream, there is nothing we can do here.

Same for me. No problems with the same version of telepathy-rakia in debian jessie and fedora 21. I think it's time for an update.

If I read this conversation correctly the bug is related to sofia-sip:


They still providing a patch here:


If this is a possible solution for the problem described here it will be wonderfull if someone could add it. Thanks!

Okay. I think that's the problem. After compiling sofia-sip with the patch the problem disappears.

More information you can find here http://sourceforge.net/p/sofia-sip/bugs/121/. It seems sofia-sip is not maintained upstream at the moment so we have to apply the patch manually.

I think we have to change the title to [sofia-sip]. It is an upstream bug but we have to solve them here by applying the patch.

Bug 44439 seems to be duplicate.

I just ran into this same problem again.

It is still not fixed upstream in Sofia-SIP, and does not seem it ever will (last update 2011-03-11).

The supplied patch fixed the problem for me. Is there any chance we can permanently apply this patch to the Arch package?
