Updated mumble packages fix broken codec support

Publication date: 08 Mar 2015
Type: bugfix
Affected Mageia releases : 4


Mageia 4 ships with an old version of mumble, 1.2.3, which uses the CELT
codec by default. Unfortunately CELT 0.11.3 provided in Mageia 4 is not
compatible anymore with mumble. This leads to very horrible sounds when
trying to discuss with other users via a mumble server.

This update disables celt 0.11 support in mumble so that it falls back
to celt 0.7.1 which is also provided by Mageia 4, or speex. This makes
for a usable mumble client although not optimal. We are sorry about this
situation and made sure Mageia 5 will have a greater mumble experience,
with the recent OPUS codec which replaces CELT in recent mumble versions.
