Bug#408407: ekiga: no audio plugins are detected on AMD64 (32bit
chroot does work)

> On my AMD64 bit workstation Ekiga does not start up because it can not detect audio plugins.
> I have installed the libpt alsa plugin (like explained in bug 375279) but this does not work.
> - Bug #375279 (Ekiga: no audio plugins are detected) looks close but does not help to resolve this.
> * When I use a 32bit chroot on the same AMD64 system, Ekiga works perfectly.
> - The Ekiga CVS snapshot from http://snapshots.ekiga.net/debian/ have the same problem.
I looked through old postings from the gnomemeeting and ekiga development mailing lists,
and this seems to be a more or less common problem.
In this posting, it is suggested you double check the permissions for the plugins and
try to strace ekiga to see why the plugins fail to load.
As others users have no problems on AMD64 I'm guessing this bug isn't architecture
specific and can be downgraded to important, but I leave that decision to the maintainers.
