01:10 bigbrovar hi guys am helping to configure koha for my schoool library .. am head deep in the reading the doc.. but am having problems with AmazonAssocTag part
01:25 chris ahh which version of koha bigbrovar?
01:25 chris amazon recently changed their TOS so the amazon stuff has recently changed
01:27 chris[…]bebf3e05a08830235
01:27 chris on master
01:43 bigbrovar thanks chris
01:43 bigbrovar am using koha 3.o
01:43 bigbrovar 3.0*
01:44 bigbrovar and yeah the amazon secret access key
01:44 bigbrovar and i have added the key to koha
01:46 chris yep, im not sure that 3.0.x has that patch
01:46 bigbrovar hmm
01:46 chris ie, that its doing what the new amazon TOS says it needs (they only started enforcing it this month)
01:47 bigbrovar what is the latest stable version of koha
01:47 chris 3.0.3 .. 3.0.4 is due in the next week or so
01:47 bigbrovar oh ok
01:47 bigbrovar hmm
01:47 chris and 3.2.0 not too much longer than that
01:47 chris (i just cant see that code change in the 3.0.x codebase yet)
01:48 bigbrovar am really very new to koha how easy is it to upgrade from one instance to another
01:48 bigbrovar like one version to another
01:48 chris[…]9fcd0d726c0191bad
01:49 chris how did you install, from a tarball or from git?
01:49 bigbrovar tarball
01:50 chris when 3.0.4 comes out you can download that, then you run
01:50 bigbrovar u think it would come with the patch?
01:50 chris perl Makefile.PL --prev-install-log /path/to/koha-install-log
01:51 chris yes it will, ill make sure it does ... otherwise amazon won't work :)
01:51 bigbrovar maybe i should just wait for the 3.2.0
01:51 pianohackr|work is now known as pianohacker
01:51 chris 3.2.0 has a LOT of new features
01:51 chris so might be worth waiting for
01:51 bigbrovar because am still configuring koha now
01:51 bigbrovar it has not been deployed
01:51 chris right, might be best to wait then
01:51 pianohacker The sysprefs editor, for one, will be much nicer :)
01:52 chris hehe yes it will :)
01:52 bigbrovar so i might was well wait
01:52 bigbrovar as*
01:52 chris sounds like a plan
01:52 bigbrovar if i might add which distro do u run koha on?
01:53 pianohacker debian's the preferred one
01:53 pianohacker What are you using?
01:53 bigbrovar version?
01:53 bigbrovar ubuntu lts
01:53 chris lenny for production
01:53 bigbrovar 8.04
01:53 pianohacker Ah. I've had success installing on ubuntu as well
01:53 bigbrovar oh u run it on lenny?
01:53 bigbrovar hmm
01:54 chris lenny has most of the perl modules as .debs
01:54 pianohacker (I run on Arch Linux for my production servers, but I'm weird)
01:54 bigbrovar hehehe
01:54 chris i think only one or 2 have have be CPAN'd on
01:54 bigbrovar pianohacker: arch is great
01:55 bigbrovar hmm
01:55 bigbrovar i have a lenny disc
01:55 bigbrovar but i have not tried debian before (yeah i know)
01:55 pianohacker Yup. I can barely stand dpkg after dealing with pacman
01:55 bigbrovar am a still a noobie at this whole linux shit
01:55 pianohacker But having things available as .debs makes life so much easier
01:56 pianohacker You're doing much better than some others that have passed through this channel, trust us
01:56 bigbrovar pianohacker: what i love the most about arch is the one config file rule them all philosophy
01:56 pianohacker bigbrovar: Yup, another advantage
01:57 pianohacker exim configuration on ubuntu, for one = slow, painful method of suicide
01:57 bigbrovar yep
01:57 chris postfix ftw :)
01:57 bigbrovar hehe
01:57 pianohacker postfix++
01:58 bigbrovar hmm so what do u guys feel .. if am going to reinstall koha which distro is best = easier ubuntu or debian lenny
01:59 pianohacker You could probably do well either way, but debian is a little better supported
02:00 bigbrovar hmm debian it would be then .. can u link me with a good guide on how to install koha on lenny
02:00 pianohacker I think there's one in the tarball
02:01 bigbrovar never installed debian before so am a lil nervous but i run arch so it cant be that hard (not that arch was hard but u get the point)
02:01 bigbrovar oh ok
02:01 chris INSTALL.debian-lenny
02:01 bigbrovar great then
02:01 chris ubuntu is just debian really
02:02 bigbrovar cool i have the cd .. so 3.2 would be a major release
02:02 pianohacker Yes
02:02 chris lots of neat new stuff
02:03 bigbrovar hate to sound like a bug but now am salivating .. when do u think it would be released?
02:04 chris there will be a beta release next month
02:04 chris and a full release in october (Thats the plan anyway)
02:05 bigbrovar great
02:05 bigbrovar main while i can get familiar with koha using the 3.0 installation i have
02:05 pianohacker Yup
02:06 chris if you are interested there is a developers meeting coming up next week
02:06 bigbrovar oh cool when and were here?
02:06 pianohacker[…]etingnotes09sep02
02:06 pianohacker Here, yes
02:07 chris ahh beat me :)
02:07 bigbrovar great
02:07 pianohacker That's what munin needs, is a wiki search
02:07 chris oh that would be great pianohacker
02:08 bigbrovar although i will be more of a non listener than anything
02:08 pianohacker That's part of what they're for
02:08 chris yep
02:08 pianohacker Worst comes to worst, there'll be a transcript posted after the meeting
02:08 bigbrovar i meant more of a listener than anything
02:09 bigbrovar guys do u work in the library or you are just admins /devs or all of the above
02:09 pianohacker I work in a library as a sysadmin, and do some dev work
02:09 pianohacker Your basic Koha nerd
02:10 bigbrovar hehehe
02:10 bigbrovar am just a noobie sysad still cutting his teeth in the trade
02:10 bigbrovar know next to nothing about libraries ..
02:11 * chris works for
02:11 bigbrovar but felt we needed a library system so i googled and koha came up
02:11 bigbrovar so here i am
02:11 pianohacker That's how my library found Koha, proud tradition
02:11 * chris is translation manager for koha, and is busy updating .po files
02:12 bigbrovar wow u guys are doing an awesome job btw
02:13 bigbrovar in case i want to host koha instance its same as a general like wordpress instance right
02:13 bigbrovar or is there a special way to host it
02:13 pianohacker Kind of. It's Perl instead of PHP
02:13 bigbrovar which host would u recommend for koha
02:14 pianohacker Oh, I see. Hosting with a general webhost is kind of difficult with Koha, due to the Perl module requirements
02:14 chris well it needs a bunch of perl modules
02:14 chris yeah what pianohacker said :)
02:14 pianohacker hehe
02:14 bigbrovar hmm
02:14 chris so one that will either let you install those, or will install them for you
02:15 bigbrovar would have to google more on that
02:15 chris those perl modules depend on yaz too
02:15 chris id recommend a vps
02:15 pianohacker One possibility would be a virtual private server (like Amazon S3 or RackSpace Cloud)
02:15 chris over just your plain host
02:15 bigbrovar just get more interesting :)
02:15 pianohacker dangit
02:15 bigbrovar hmm
02:15 chris is a good option too
02:16 pianohacker yup
02:16 pianohacker There's also zebra
02:16 chris hmm southerly has just hit
02:16 * chris gets the dogs in
02:16 pianohacker Have you heard about zebra? Installing it is just oodles of fun
02:16 bigbrovar were i install say a debian/ubuntu instance in the cloud and run koha from there right?
02:16 pianohacker exactly
02:17 bigbrovar wow i hope that wont be too expensive for a small school like ours :)
02:18 pianohacker If you don't need people from outside the school to be able to see your OPAC, you could just host it yourself
02:18 chris *nod*
02:18 bigbrovar yeah that is the plan
02:24 bigbrovar thanks guys
02:24 bigbrovar hope to be at the meeting for 2 sept
02:24 pianohacker Cool. Good luck
02:26 bigbrovar are u guys on identica ? the microbloging thingie
02:27 chris i am
02:28 bigbrovar your handle if u dont mind?
02:28 chris
02:28 bigbrovar mine is bigbrovar
02:29 pianohacker Not me, unfortunately :) My github is my main identity
02:29 pianohacker Sorry,
02:31 bigbrovar hehe
02:31 bigbrovar chris: sub u
02:31 chris ohh nigeria very cool :)
02:31 bigbrovar yeah but its not what u think :)
02:34 chris I dont know of any other Koha libraries in Nigeria
02:34 chris there are quite a few in Kenya
02:34 chris
02:34 bigbrovar well Nigeria is a MS country :(
02:35 bigbrovar we are the only school based on foss
02:35 bigbrovar like all our computers run ubuntu
02:35 bigbrovar including lab pc and laptop we give to students
02:36 chris good for you guys :)
02:36 bigbrovar and as usual the MS guys came and offered to throw 200 free* vista licenses at us
02:36 chris yeah, thats their usual trick
02:36 chris they are like drug dealers .. the first one is free, then you are hooked
02:37 bigbrovar was glad to show them our computer labs happily running linux
02:37 chris hehe
02:37 bigbrovar and told them when / if we need them i would give am a call
02:37 bigbrovar i was really polite though
02:37 chris *nod*
02:38 bigbrovar there came with their suits and wimo smart phones .. and asked why we use FOSS in the first place
02:38 bigbrovar because there have even better products
02:38 bigbrovar all we had to do was to sign a lil agreemement
02:39 bigbrovar and we get tons of free* MS goodies
02:39 bigbrovar hehe
02:39 chris hehe
02:41 bigbrovar its going to be hard for FOSS to take hold here
02:41 bigbrovar MS has an iron grip on things
02:42 bigbrovar but i hope i can help change that
02:42 bigbrovar at least let people know there is an alternative
02:42 chris at least the kids at your school will be being exposed to something else
02:42 chris so thats a good start
02:43 bigbrovar well its a uni
02:43 bigbrovar and 2nd degree uni
02:43 bigbrovar
02:44 bigbrovar
02:45 bigbrovar chris: do u work in a school too
02:45 chris nope, i work for a company who specialise in FLOSS
02:46 bigbrovar wow what area of FLOSS
02:46 chris
02:46 chris thats who i work for
02:47 bigbrovar thinking of starting one here too .. but it would be hard
02:47 chris catalyst does a lot of moodle and drupal work .. amongst lots of others
02:47 bigbrovar but its one thing i have in mind
02:47 chris very cool
02:47 bigbrovar oh ok
02:47 bigbrovar we will be moving to moodle too
02:47 chris have you seen mahara?
02:48 chris
02:48 bigbrovar and our website run on drupal (although we are movign it to plone)
02:48 chris it works well with moodle
02:48 bigbrovar wow
02:48 chris we are working on getting single sign on with moodle + mahara + koha
02:49 bigbrovar ddamn that would be hot
02:50 chris all we need is a good student management system
02:51 bigbrovar hmm tot moodle was no ?
02:51 chris thats a good course management and delivery system
02:52 bigbrovar true
02:52 chris but more one for tracking who has paid fees, etc
02:52 chris with something like that, there would be everything a school/university needs
02:53 bigbrovar yeah u right just what we need too
02:53 bigbrovar have u tried lots of resources there
02:53 chris *nod*
02:53 chris i havent looked recently, i should look again
02:55 bigbrovar[…].php?form_cat=310

19:07 chris is it just me or is every image on busted?
20:05 sekjal joined #koha
20:05 sekjal hopefully everyone is out having a good weekend.
20:06 sekjal but for those who are in chat, I've got a bit of an urgent problem I could use help with
20:14 chris sup sekjal?
20:16 sekjal trying to run my circulation state capture program
20:17 chris right
20:17 sekjal It should take in the patron's barcode, perform GetMemberDetails(0, $barcode), and then pass that value to AddIssue()
20:17 chris k
20:17 sekjal the return value of GetMemberDetails I'm calling $borrower
20:18 sekjal and I'm calling AddIssue($borrower, $itembarcode, $duedate, 0, $checkoutdate)
20:19 sekjal whoever, when I do that, I get a compilation error saying:
20:19 sekjal "Can't use an undefined value as a HASH reference at /usr/share/koha/lib/C4/ line 1007
20:19 sekjal line 1007 reads:
20:20 sekjal $borrower->{'borrowernumber'}
20:20 sekjal where $borrower should be lining up with what I fed the subroutine
20:21 chris right, it sounds like GetMemberDetails is failing
20:22 chris ie $borrower is undefined
20:22 chris what barcode are you passing in the first time?
20:22 chris and if you run
20:23 chris select borrowers.*,category_type,categories.description from borrowers  left join categories on borrowers.categorycode=categories.categorycode where cardnumber=your_barcode;
20:23 chris in the db, does it return a result?
20:25 sekjal empty set
20:25 sekjal so, I never got that barcode in the system....
20:26 chris yep
20:26 chris that looks like the problem
20:26 chris in order to handle that
20:26 chris I would do
20:26 chris if ($borrower) {
20:26 chris do your stuff
20:26 chris } else {
20:27 chris warn "Borrwer with barcode $barcode does not exist";
20:27 chris }
20:27 chris or print it, so you have a list of barcodes taht failed
20:27 chris wow typing fail today
20:27 sekjal alright.  looking at that particular barcode, it is oddly short.... I should look it up in the old ILS
20:31 sekjal hmmmm, apparently that particular barcode no longer exists
20:31 sekjal yet it was just extracted from the system
20:31 sekjal so....
20:31 sekjal ::confused::
20:33 chris yeah that is weird
20:33 sekjal still won't compile, even with the if/then statement
20:34 chris whats the error its giving you now?
20:34 sekjal the same
20:34 sekjal can't use an undefined value as a HASH reference
20:35 sekjal same line of
20:35 chris if its undefined that if should fail, and that line should never get called
20:35 chris can you pastebin the snippet of code please?
20:35 chris
20:37 |Lupin| joined #koha
20:37 sekjal oh, right, my code... just a sec
20:37 |Lupin| good evening koha
20:37 chris hi |Lupin|
20:38 brendan joined #koha
20:38 chris hi brendan, still at the airport?
20:38 brendan yup -- looks like the delay is now two hours
20:38 sekjal chris:
20:38 sekjal hi, brendan
20:38 richard joined #koha
20:38 richard hi
20:39 brendan hello all
20:39 |Lupin| hey brendan, god luck with your plain
20:39 brendan sekjal -- how was the wedding :)
20:39 chris ahh you cant use if (defined
20:39 chris cos my $borrower;
20:39 chris defines it
20:39 chris try just
20:39 chris if ($borrower) {
20:40 sekjal same error
20:40 chris (its undefined by the time it hits AddIssue
20:40 sekjal brendan: the wedding was great
20:40 sekjal went by so fast...
20:40 brendan excellent news
20:41 |Lupin| sekjal: you are now married ?
20:41 sekjal brendan: sorry I couldn't be around to greet you in person
20:41 brendan it does go by so fast doesn't it
20:41 sekjal yes, I am indeed married
20:41 brendan you get some good camping in
20:41 sekjal much to my delight
20:41 chris how bout if ($borrower && $borrower->{'borrowernumber'}){
20:41 sekjal we did
20:41 chris and congrats sekjal :)
20:42 brendan yes congrats sekjal
20:42 |Lupin| congrats too, sekjal
20:42 sekjal thank you all
20:42 * |Lupin| is tempted to say "good luck", also... :/
20:42 sekjal okay, adding the second condition got my 'else' statement to print once, then the same error after that
20:43 chris weird
20:43 |Lupin| k, good night all
20:43 sekjal goodnight!
20:43 |Lupin| good day nz
20:43 brendan sekjal what are you working at the moment -- just trying to catch up
20:43 sekjal circ state capture
20:43 |Lupin| left #koha
20:44 sekjal trying to pass my script a file with item barcode, patron barcode, out date, and due date
20:44 sekjal and have the script use AddIssue to checkout the list appropriately
20:44 chris i cant see how that if condition can be true ie $borrower->{'borrowernumber'} is true
20:44 chris and it still fail in AddIssue
20:45 sekjal unfortunately, I'm having some trouble turning my patron barcode into a patron object
20:45 sekjal yeah, it just doesn't jive
20:45 sekjal I'll admit I'm pretty new to Perl, but I'm an old hat at logic
20:45 chris yeah :)
20:46 chris what i would try is before the AddIssue call
20:46 chris use Data::Dumper;
20:46 chris warn Dumper $borrower;
20:46 chris that will dump the $borrower variable and we can see what is actually in it
20:46 chris we could then do the same in AddIssue
20:46 brendan one thing that I got hung on before -- was that the patronnumber and the kohapatronnumber never matched for me before
20:47 chris brendan: it's using barcode
20:47 brendan right
20:47 brendan so no need to worry about that
20:47 chris to find the koha borrower, .. but for some reason weirdness is happening
20:47 sekjal I tried to preserve patron number on import.... no dice
20:48 brendan does your system have the problem with multiple barcode numbers per patron
20:48 brendan I think you said you got deleted that before your import
20:49 sekjal Stuart did some kind of fancy footwork to delete extra barcodes, leaving only the most recent
20:49 brendan right
20:49 sekjal however, for some reason, we are only importing a small subset of all the existing patrons
20:49 sekjal supposedly, all the active patrons should be migrated over
20:50 sekjal for a complex definition of 'active'
20:51 chris my ( $charge, $itemtype ) = GetIssuingCharges(
20:51 chris $item->{'itemnumber'},
20:51 chris $borrower->{'borrowernumber'}
20:51 chris );
20:51 chris is the bit failing in C4::Circulation eh?
20:52 chris cos that is all one line as far as perl is concerned
20:52 sekjal its failing in:
20:52 sekjal $sth->execute(
20:52 chris ahh ha
20:52 chris one line again
20:52 sekjal $borrower->{'borrowernumber'}
20:52 sekjal specifically
20:52 chris i now suspect $item->{'itemnumber'}
20:53 chris thats part of the same line
20:53 chris $sth->execute(
20:53 chris $borrower->{'borrowernumber'},      # borrowernumber
20:53 chris $item->{'itemnumber'},              # itemnumber
20:53 chris $issuedate,                         # issuedate
20:53 chris $datedue->output('iso'),            # date_due
20:53 chris C4::Context->userenv->{'branch'}    # branchcode
20:53 chris );
20:53 chris eh?
20:53 sekjal yes, there
20:53 chris thats all one statement, so we know $borrower->{'borrowernumber'} is true
20:53 chris so i bet $item->{'itemnumber'} isnt
20:54 chris but we can check that
20:54 chris by dumping those 2 just before that execute
20:54 chris use Data::Dumper;
20:54 chris warn Dumper $borrower;
20:54 chris warn Dumper $item;
20:55 chris that will at least confirm what we actually have at that point
20:56 sekjal add those lines to
20:57 chris yes please
20:57 chris just before the execute statement
20:58 sekjal nothing different on the terminal
20:58 sekjal did this data dump somewhere else?
20:58 chris you could change the warns to prints
20:59 sekjal ah.  sorry, I was using the wrong copy of
20:59 sekjal argh
20:59 chris ahh that would do it ;)
21:00 sekjal that did something
21:01 chris cool want to pastebin it?
21:02 sekjal
21:02 chris well they both exist then :)
21:03 chris hmmm
21:03 cato joined #koha
21:04 sekjal brb
21:05 chris C4::Context->userenv->{'branch'} is my final suspect then
21:06 chris that is set $self->{"userenv"} = undef;
21:07 sekjal hmmm, that seems likely
21:07 sekjal how can I define the branch from my script?
21:08 chris ahh yeah i see what it does, it gets taht from the active user (ie the logged in one)
21:08 chris that doesnt exist in this case
21:08 chris try
21:09 chris hmm
21:09 chris set_userenv
21:10 chris C4::Context->set_userenv($usernum, $userid, $usercnum, $userfirstname, $usersurname, $userbranch, $userflags, $emailaddress);
21:10 chris in your script somewhere near the top
21:11 sekjal do those values need to be consistant with an existing user?
21:11 chris $userbranch is one you really need
21:11 chris lemme check the code
21:11 chris no
21:11 chris it just populates a hash
21:11 sekjal k, I'll try it
21:12 chris they are inserted into the statistics table
21:12 chris so a migration user might be good
21:12 chris actually no that is only the branch too, yeah branch seems to be the one you really need
21:15 sekjal still won't work for me
21:16 chris damnit
21:16 chris still the same error?
21:16 sekjal yes
21:16 chris ok, where your dumper statements are
21:16 chris can you put
21:17 chris warn  C4::Context->userenv->{'branch'};
21:17 chris it should dump out the value you set it to in your script
21:18 sekjal same error, but now on line 1006.... which is the line of the statement I just inserted
21:18 sekjal so I think we found the problem
21:18 chris *nod*
21:18 chris so userenv is still blank
21:19 chris so it looks like our set didnt work
21:19 chris can you paste that line in?
21:20 chris ah i see the problem
21:20 sekjal C4::Context->set_userenv(1, 'sekjal', 1, 'migration', 'fake', 'MED', 0, '');
21:21 chris ah ha
21:23 chris add this before that line
21:23 chris C4::Context->_new_userenv(123456);
21:24 chris so we make a new userenv (thats our session id)
21:24 chris and then populate it
21:24 chris hopefully that was the missing piece
21:24 sekjal it certainly was one
21:24 sekjal I'm getting something....
21:24 chris C4::Auth does all this when a user logs .. (course we are not doing that)
21:25 chris logs in ever
21:25 chris even
21:25 chris sheesh
21:25 sekjal unfortunately, most of it is FOREIGN KEY violations
21:25 chris :(
21:25 chris those at least should be less opaque to solve
21:25 sekjal that seems like it could be solved by picking a better branch code
21:27 sekjal I REALLY wish I could pick this up tomorrow....
21:28 chris ah yeah, pick a branch code that is in the branches table
21:29 brendan alright boarding the plane now -- gotta run -- sekjal you are in excellent hands...  good luck -- there's still plenty of time and coffee left !
21:29 chris have a good flight brendan
21:29 sekjal thanks, brendan.  fly safe!
21:30 brendan left #koha
21:32 hdl_laptop left #koha
21:38 sekjal alright, some stuff seems to be getting through
21:38 sekjal lots of bad barcode errors, but that's a whole separate issue
21:39 chris *nod*
21:39 chris cool, well thats progress of a a sort :)
21:40 sekjal yes
21:40 sekjal I can live with that
21:40 sekjal for tonight at least
21:41 chris sweet
21:41 sekjal just got to get the bibs to successfully index on the prod system, then I think I can go
21:41 sekjal do some remote maintanence from home tonight
21:42 gmcharlt evening folks

23:05 * chris wonders how sekjal is doing
23:07 sekjal chris: looks like the circ state is working okay; I just need to figure out why certain barcodes are bad
23:07 sekjal in-house use seems to be okay, though it won't show up on the default report when run (but its in there)
23:08 sekjal and it looks like all but 2 of 11616 patrons imported
23:08 chris nice
23:09 chris thats a pretty good success rate
23:09 sekjal and the barcode failure are only 44/764
23:10 sekjal I think I can improve that if I don't pre-select which barcode to use; just try them all, and only complain if none take
23:10 chris right
23:11 sekjal I've got an hour before the train, so that leaves me some 45 minutes to see if I can figure it out on my test machine
23:11 sekjal if so, I can go home, and run it there
23:11 chris good luck
23:12 sekjal thanks, chris, for all your help
23:12 chris no worries
23:47 sekjal left #koha
