Compiling Ekiga on Slack 12.1
I'm getting this error when running configure

configure: error: conditional "HAVE_GNOME_DOC_UTILS" was never defined.
Usually this means the macro was only invoked conditionally.

I'm using these options for configure
./configure --disable-gnome --with-pwlib-dir=/usr/local --with-opal-dir=/usr/local --disable-avahi --disable-doc --disable-scrollkeeper

Anybody have any ideas how to get this thing compile?
Anybody compiled Ekiga successfully on Slackware 12.1?

What SIP app are you using with Slack 12.1?

I'm on Gentoo and had a look at the build-logs for ekiga.
The relevant difference here seems to be the:
which is not shown when you run ./configure --help
This is how it got configured for my system - of course I have Gnome and want this dependency...

./configure --prefix=/usr --host=i686-pc-linux-gnu --mandir=/usr/share/man --infodir=/usr/share/info --datadir=/usr/share --sysconfdir=/etc --localstatedir=/var/lib --enable-dbus --enable-sdl --enable-avahi --disable-doc --enable-gnome --disable-scrollkeeper --disable-gtk-doc --build=i686-pc-linux-gnu

There is a SlackBuild for this :

Slackovado - if you are not aware of SlackBuilds then you should be. Look into them...

Or else, ready packages (SlackBuild scripts included) for ekiga plus the dependencies opal & pwlib here:

I just compiled the version and it's working perfectly!

Ok, thanks everyone.
I did compile using the slackbuild and it worked.
I like compiling my own and it usually works fine except when something is broken at the source like Ekiga.

Does anyone have a good sip/voip provider they use?
