Skype's the only thing I can get going. That does work very nicely.

I agree

Sound quality's not always so good, but getting Skype to work is very easy.

I agree skype is the best and perhaps only option in Linux. However I have a query related to skype. Installing skype (rpm) on Redhat & SLES has always been a pain in the neck. The same rpm gets easily installed on OpenSuse & Debian.

So in Redhat I use skype source files. However the tarball is really old (1.4) where as skype rpm version in business is 2.0.

How can I get the latest version of Skype Source Tarball. I couldn't find it on the skype site

Is Skype not proprietary? I would be surprised if you can get source code.

Skype works pretty well, I've had problems with skype+soundblaster_audigy, but it works well with my current setup.

During the big skype crash, me and two friends migraged to gizmo - worked flawlessly with one, but with the other one the calls would get dropped after some time.
Might be worth a try... I liked the program, and the fact that it can connect to SIP clients.
Ekiga did work in theory, but calls got dropped way too often - might just need a better sip server. I think the program itself is fine.
