I did a very quick test this morning.
I managed to setup my ekiga.net account (very easy) and call the echo-room. It did'nt crash, so that's an improvement compared to ekiga.
But I did'nt got sound back from the echo-room, I guess it's more an issue with me unable to get the internal mic working.

It's probably been years since my last time attempting to use Linphone, but I think I will install it on my desktop and/or laptop to see what happens when I play with it...

Not any better.
Edit : I found this to enable the internal Mic. I should test this when I'm back home
From what I understand while the output is ont the card0 device0 the mic is on card0 device1. linphone dont seems to allow me choose this device for input. I do have a choice :

Anyway... I took some time to test the app.
I set up a sip2sip account and then a POIVY account. The first problem I ran into is that it wouldn't ask me for my SIP password. I am not sure what exactly went wrong but sometime later it did ask me for my password. (actually it seems to ask my SIP account password every time I open the app now).
I was able to call but I had no sound during the call. I actually hear the ring but then nothing. I tried all the sound option (oss and alsa) but nothing seem to work.
It's too bad because it seems like a good app to have on the Pandora. Hope someone can figure this one out. I am not an expert at troubleshooting audio problem.
I actually installed it on my Opensuse and it works like a charm there
Finally, if you just want to test VOIP I recommend you register with sip2sip: https://mdns.sipthor.net/register_sip_account.phtml
It's one of the few provider where you only need a valid email address to get a free SIP account. Then you can call 3333 for audio test (music) or 4444 for mic test (echo).

OK so for gizmo maybe this is useful for you, CPU, but maybe you already know about it: http://support.gizmo5.com/index.php?_m=knowledgebase&_a=viewarticle&kbarticleid=83
in x-lite, my gizmo settings are
username & authorization username: 11 digit gizmo phone number
password: gizmo password
everything else i think is default
Works well for me most times and i would hope linphone's configuration would be just as easy.....
Ah so i am a little over 2000 in the queue and unfortunately do not have a pandora to give this port of sebt3's a whirl. If anyone else wants to but doesnt know what voip is, here's how:
This guide shows you how to use google voice and sipgate for an essentially free (paid with privacy) voip service.
I use gizmo5 instead of sipgate (lower latency) but gizmo was acquired by google and strangely have had new signups closed since...
But i can verify using x-lite that sipgate and gizmo5 both work with google voice.
Here's to hoping i'll be able to make calls to my friends with my pandora and a bluetooth headset when i get it!!

@maplesugarlover: Technically speaking, google isn't proprietary, it's just not a full VOIP solution. It's actually half (as it's dial-in only on the user's behalf... even if it calls you before it calls the number you're trying to call. I actually don't find that as a bad thing, as it's a free way to have one number across all your phones (VOIP, home and cell) because you can have calls ring on all types of phones. Gizmo isn't proprietary either, it's just old.
The company was bought by Google to further their VOIP ideals (which shows as things moved forward VERY quickly after they acquired Gizmo). Technically speaking, they assimilated the old company, but was curteous enough to not just cut off old users and allow them to still use their old gizmo5 (and grandcentral) user info as well as allow the gizmo website to stay up, even though it doesn't take new registrations. It could have been a LOT worse had they bought Gizmo and shut down everything that WAS Gizmo in the idea of furthering Google only. Of course, this is where I stand on the concept, it's not necessarily all facts (aside from what is obviously true about my statements).
But I wouldn't call Google proprietary... You could say that the Google voice technology in itself is closed source, but that's only partially true... the code to do what they do is already out there, if not in a "complete form" to mimic them, then pieces here and there that can be put together. And I think the only reason it's considered any level of closed is because they are not done working on it. And, like all things Google, when it comes to coding, they open the source when they feel they are done (enough) with it to be ready for public consumption.
But I digress. And I'd rather not hijack this thread with our conversation if you wish to continue. If you'd like, we can open a separate thread and discuss this further. This thread is meant for the praise and accolades of sebt3 for his Linphone accomplishment.

Building an app is not an accomplishment. I didnt changed a single line of code. I just built an app that have been proved to work on the ARM plateform.
This thread is meant for the praise and accolades of sebt3 for his Linphone accomplishment.
Still, it dont work.
If someone could help me with that alsa mess, I'll be gladfull. As the pandora definatly need a voip software.

there is no pulseaudio support on pandora (at least to my knowledge), and dont want to mess with that (it is still uninstalled on my own PC)
no one ever really got back to me on whether pulseaudio is functional on pandora just yet... guess I'll google it and see if I can toss some info related to that in this thread to see if you can get it working for linphone. You did say you compiled it from source (as opposed to porting the Android version over) correct? If so, I know it has pulseaudio support built in, as I saw the settings for such in the desktop version of the program.

I honestly hope someone is working on implementing it within the pnd environment... it's the only thing I know of that switches channels on the fly (and does a good job of it as well)! ...and that's a feature i'd like to have (case in point, pairing a set of nice bluetooth speakers to it and switching the audio over while the media player is running so I don't skip a beat when I come home from a run or bike ride and wanna continue my workout at home... or if I wanna switch a VOIP call from a bluetooth headset to bluetooth speakers or the built-in audio connected to regular speakers to put the person I'm talking to "on speakerphone" ).
