2.6.5 is in the unstable branch. 2.5.3 is the current stable release. I tried updating to 2.6.5 automatically and it was a monumental disaster. I'm pretty sure that it can be upgraded to 2.6.5, but it needs to be done manually, with the requirements carefully chosen and not just let opkg install whatever it thinks it needs willy nilly. Whether this has already happened for the Pandora or will need to be done after release, I don't know.Prometheus said:Well, Pidgin's already included, though I'm not 100% sure which version is being used. I would guess it's the most recent one in the Angstrom repository, though, which is 2.6.5-r1.0.5, which as far as I can see does have voice support (though for what I'm not sure - I don't use its voice chat features).
Voice works perfectly in the XMPP (gtalk) plugin, same with web cam. It doesn't work in MSN, AIM, or YIM which are all closed specs which keep changing every so often.paddy said:As far as i know there is no working voice chat on Pidgin ,however it is included
in the software ,just has never worked for me or anyone else from the ubuntu forums.
There might be earlyer versions that do work but im not aware of them.

Assuming there aren't any closed source plugins, should be fine.borgqueenx said:What about vlc player and all its plugins?
So I upgraded Pidgin on my beagleboard to 2.6.5, which should have voice support over XMPP, but I can't for the life of me figure out how to make it work. Even on my desktop which is 2.6.6 I can't remember how I did it. The options for audio and video calls are greyed out. I was fairly certain that I'd used voice chat over Pidgin before, but now I'm wondering if I imagined the whole thing.WizardStan said:Voice works perfectly in the XMPP (gtalk) plugin, same with web cam.

edit: by which I mean a more recent version of Pidgin w/ XMPP works with voice and web cam. The 2.5.3 included in the stable Angstrom repository is a couple years old and doesn't have those.
Thanks gruso. Any good experience with voice control software? Because more then half of those apps dont work very well...Gruso said:> Will voice commands work?
Depends on software. If someone writes/ports something with voice recognition, yes.

Yep, it's a TRRS jack designed for just that.
> Will some kind of msn messenger work WITH working webcam support?
There's bound to be something out there that will do it.
 Wait, are you asking specifically about Pidgin, or just general questions?
As of version 2.6 (released on August 18, 2009) Pidgin has a voice/video framework which uses Farsight2 and is based on Mike Ruprecht's Google Summer of Code project from 2008. That release provides the ability to have voice/video conversations using the XMPP protocol (including Google Talk), though the implementation is not yet fully complete. The framework will also allow for voice/video conversations on other protocols, such as MSN and Yahoo, in the future.
