If you want to use Linphone, please make sure that you are using ALSA sound drivers and not OSS.
Linphone should work with OSS, but most of the time you will get the most mysterious erors you have ever seen, and _if_ you hear sound, it will be slow and bad quality with OSS drivers. With ALSA sound drivers, sound quality and response is perfect.
