23:52 CGI899      hello all, We are doing our first import into koha and want to know about how long does it take to import the file into koha?
23:43 imp         dunno, never heard one :D
23:42 rhcl        Well, nothing can be as bad as the old Compaq G1's and G2's.
23:42 imp         my experience is, the older sun products are loud and at the lower frequency range, the new ones are /screaming/ more or less higher ;)
23:41 rhcl        just need to add a data disk
23:41 rhcl        But yea, the specs are pretty decent.... 8 GB of memory, dual SCSI drives, dual Opteron CPU's, DVD...
23:40 imp         ok :D
23:40 rhcl        Well, I just ordered two. I'll let you know. :)  But I have a server room that's already loud.
23:39 imp         rhcl: the hardware sounds great :) (and i guess it's loud as hell :D)
23:39 rhcl        If you can work with Solaris 10 anyway. :)
23:35 rhcl        this might be one option...  http://www.techsoup.org/stock/Category.asp?catalog_name=TechSoupMain&category_name=Sun&Page=1
23:34 rhcl        For US libraries needing a Koha server, or maybe even for vendors to suggest to library clients for a server to minimize costs...
23:33 imp         or is the irc server really unreachable, even for the ones on the same network?
23:32 imp         maybe somebody should put the freenode channel here into the topic too?
23:31 chris_n     masonj: at least not for the next minute or so ;-)
23:30 masonj      i was all set to send a ranty email to the list, bout TC... looks like i wont need to now
23:29 brendan     and we're back
23:28 chris       lets hope telstraclear dont bust their routes again
23:28 masonj      .
22:00 munin       schuster: The operation succeeded.
22:00 schuster    @later tell owen - can you look at bug 2930?  Is this something that is a template change or???  It is an enhancement, but would seem to be fairly easy.
21:59 schuster    catch him tomorrow...
21:59 schuster    Owen gone yet?
21:37 wizzyrea    yes, I encourage this
21:37 hdl_laptop  Well... speaking of TimeMachine.... My inner machine is going down for some rest see you ;)
21:36 chris       ok im going to get some more sleep, try to shake off this flu
21:36 chris       but the good thing is it isnt contigent on any of the other work
21:36 imp         just get everybody on a plane and let's travel with the sun -> more hours per day ;)
21:36 hdl_laptop  jwagner: developer is one thing, brain somtimes seems to be other one ;)
21:36 chris       c4::search is rapidly moving to my top priority for 3.4
21:35 cait        ;)
21:35 cait        hdl_laptop: yes, someone should rewrite that... need more hours
21:35 jwagner     and C4::CloneDeveloper
21:35 gmcharlt    hdl_laptop: you forgot C4::TimeMachine
21:34 hdl_laptop  Well days are only 24 hours ;)
21:34 hdl_laptop  TT2.....
21:34 hdl_laptop  I forgot DBIx::Class
21:34 hdl_laptop  and complexity
21:34 hdl_laptop  And planned by order of priority
21:34 jwagner     There ought to be some way to schedule regular virtual hackfests.  Not everyone is going to get to NZ for Kohacon, and any regional meetings aren't going to include everyone.
21:33 hdl_laptop  Circulation - Serials - items - Search engine.
21:33 hdl_laptop  jwagner: should be organised with some virtual rooms.
21:33 chris       monolithic_modules--
21:32 jwagner     hdl_laptop, hackfest or virtual hackfest?
21:32 chris       yeah
21:32 gmcharlt    hdl_laptop: possible could break it down further - QueryParser, Search, Search::Zebra, Search::NoZebra (if we must ;), Search::Solr, etc. + ResultsFormatter
21:32 hdl_laptop  I think it would be good to be able to discuss such things with more ppl...
21:31 hdl_laptop  gmcharlt: I would not even scare everyone out of 3.2 with such an idea ;)
21:30 gmcharlt    but I agree that it would be nice to have it be a priority for 3.4
21:30 hdl_laptop  I can see two modules at least. Query and Engine with submodules.
21:30 gmcharlt    hdl_laptop: yeah, redoing it is not an option for 3.2 - we'll have to keep the spit-and-bailing-wire going
21:29 hdl_laptop  But redesign would be really really not trivial.
21:29 hdl_laptop  gmcharlt: chris I am really really concerned about C4::Search.
21:27 hdl_laptop  getting facets and process of items for status out of the getRecords would be first step
21:26 hdl_laptop  But indeed, C4::Search needs serious work
21:25 hdl_laptop  http://git.biblibre.com/cgi-bin/gitweb.cgi?p=koha;a=commit;h=0cd0da000b6d7903c9a23000163ed9f87d0ab540
21:25 hdl_laptop  chris_n: maybe this kind of thing is what you want to do.
21:24 pmlozeau    yep total newb
21:24 chris       :)
21:24 pmlozeau    finally learning and understanding how irc works
21:24 hdl_laptop  sorry... was back reading logs.
21:24 pmlozeau    hi chris
21:23 chris       hi pmlozeau
21:23 hdl_laptop  But it hard codes all the ccl rather than getting it from the ccl.properties files.
21:23 munin       04Bug http://bugs.koha.org/cgi-bin/bugzilla3/show_bug.cgi?id=3584 major, PATCH-Sent, ---, nahuel.angelinetti@biblibre.com, ASSIGNED, Set a default index to search on.
21:23 hdl_laptop  bug 3584
21:22 hdl_laptop  nahuel sent fixes for the C4/Search on 3.0
21:21 hdl_laptop  again,
21:21 hdl_laptop  chris_n:
21:21 chris_n     bbl
21:20 chris       cool
21:19 imp         just remind me next week and i'll take a look if it's something possible to do for me
21:18 * chris_n   adds another item to the fix list of C4::Search
21:17 chris_n     searchResults counts each item available separately regardless of if it is a duplicate copy or not
21:17 chris_n     the logic is out of sync with the display
21:16 chris_n     exactly
21:16 gmcharlt    branch (number items not checked out, lost, or missing)  - although duplication is odd
21:14 chris_n     in opac-search.pl: exactly what information is this line supposed to convey: Availability:  Copies available:  Jones Library (1), Jones Library (1),
21:14 imp         :D
21:14 cait        ;)
21:14 imp         cait: pssst ;)
21:13 cait        he has to learn for an exam, dont help him to avoid it
21:13 jwagner     I definitely heard that too!
21:13 imp         cait: nope, "programming languages and compilers", the practical exercise
21:13 chris_n     hehe
21:13 cait        poor imp
21:13 chris       :)
21:13 chris       sounds like imp just volunteered to me
21:12 imp         but i never wrote anything big in perl
21:12 cait        swp?
21:12 * imp       wrote a parser for a programming language at the uni
21:09 gmcharlt    there's the Google-style type syntax that most people *really* want
21:08 gmcharlt    there's CQL
21:08 gmcharlt    yeah, there are several - CCL itself is ill-defined
21:08 chris_n     imp: all of them :-)
21:08 imp         is there a formal definition of the /language/ the parser should be able to parse?
21:07 cait        :)
21:07 imp         :D
21:07 chris       heh
21:07 * chris_n   runs out of the room screaming
21:07 chris       yeah i think a tighter syntax that is more consistently parsed is the win
21:06 gmcharlt    + possibly a URL rewriter to handle old style search links - I suspect that as part of rewriting the parser, we'll have to constrain the syntax it accepts a bit
21:05 gmcharlt    s/lined up/silly enough to be standing around so that we can dragoon them into/
21:05 chris       one being the parser, another that does the search
21:05 chris       im thinking it would be better split into 2 modules
21:05 cait        hi all
21:04 chris       no one has been crazy enough to volunteer yet
21:04 gmcharlt    chris: who's lined up to redo C4::Search?
21:03 chris       that whole query parser is just a big mess
21:01 chris       cool thanks, yeah that second patch (the quick comment out) was ill advised
20:59 chris_n     then I'll submit this fix and mark the other patch as deprecated
20:59 * gmcharlt  waggles finger at chris, though - breaking OPAC search links, though?
20:59 jwagner     Don't worry, I'll hand them right back.
20:59 * wizzyrea  has passed on her memes, and now has no reason to exist
20:59 wizzyrea    my work here is done.
20:59 wizzyrea    !!!
20:59 gmcharlt    chris_n: it is, but none of our options are particularly good
20:59 chris       it was pretty hugely broken, in that anything with a : couldnt be searched on
20:58 chris_n     lol
20:58 jwagner     to quote wizzyrea: Squeeeeeee
20:58 chris       yep
20:58 jwagner     But the _end result_ is going to be a fix for the 3:10 type search, right?  (she said hopefully)
20:58 chris_n     gmcharlt: do you agree that this is a less havoc-wreaking fix then the former?
20:57 jwagner     Oh, well, win some/lose some....
20:57 chris       the other stuff is what we are trying to fix
20:57 chris       but it broke other stuff
20:57 jwagner     YEAH!!!!!
20:57 chris_n     I'm not sure I've caught all of the limit operators or not
20:57 chris       jwagner: it fixed that
20:57 jwagner     chris or chris_n, is this going to solve the problem of searching for a title like 3:10 to Yuma?  (can't search if it has the colon in it)?
20:56 chris       yeah, the whole C4/Search is slated for a rewrite
20:56 chris_n     gmcharlt: but less stuff than before :-)
20:56 gmcharlt    as any other ccl indexes that people may have built permalinks off of would still be broken
20:56 chris_n     and the query parser ought to be fixed
20:56 chris       nope, that seems like a much nicer one, the original problem broke any searches that had : in them
20:56 gmcharlt    still breaks a lot of stuff
20:56 * chris_n   thinks it is preferable to the many code changes required otherwise
20:55 chris_n     do you see any problem if I submit that change?
20:55 chris       yup
20:55 chris       that's better
20:55 chris_n     appears to be a more tolerable workaround
20:55 chris_n     $query =~ s/(?<=(ti|au|pb|su|an|kw|mc)):/=/g;
20:55 chris_n     so
20:55 chris_n     this causes a bunch of links in opac-detail.pl to break
20:54 chris_n     you submitted a patch that commented out $query =~ s/:/=/g;
20:54 chris       yep
20:54 chris_n     chris: C4::Search... about line 1099
20:53 munin       brendan: The current temperature in Northwest Goleta, Goleta, California is 16.3�C (12:46 PM PST on January 28, 2010). Conditions: Clear. Humidity: 62%. Dew Point: 9.0�C. Pressure: 29.99 in 1015.5 hPa (Falling).

20:53 chris       chris_n: yep whats up?

20:52 chris_n     wow, sorry munin
20:52 wizzyrea    Oh THAT

04:04 Amit        heya si
04:03 Amit        heya richard
04:01 masonj      performance wise... which i can actually do now :)
04:01 masonj      i wanna see what the difference is between a 32bit-PAE install, and a AMD64 install
03:59 si          lets you address more RAM, and they have > 4GB RAM on their servers
03:59 masonj      i was expecting to compile the yaz/zebra stuff myself at least, but no..
03:58 si          hlt has been on amd64 koha for a while
03:58 masonj      twas a *very* easy setup tho
03:58 richard     :)
03:57 masonj      bout 2 days ;)
03:57 richard     how long have had koha set up on the AMD64 box?
03:57 masonj      heya richard
03:57 richard     hey masonj and Amit
03:54 Amit        k
03:54 masonj      fyi: http://www.debian.org/ports/amd64/
03:52 masonj      i will get back to you with my results ;)
03:51 masonj      im curious to see if there are any performance improvements to 64bit koha
03:51 Amit        ok
03:51 masonj      i have not started benchmarking 32bit and 64bit systems yet
03:49 Amit        ok
03:49 Amit        Intel
03:49 masonj      centos x86_64  = debian AMD64
03:48 masonj      CentOS-5 x86_64 (AMD64 and Intel EMT64) architectures.
03:48 masonj      aaah...
03:46 Amit        what about koha performance with AMD64
03:46 Amit        not on AMD64
03:46 Amit        no Centos 64 bit OS
03:46 masonj      centos AMD64?
03:46 Amit        on centos
03:45 Amit        yes i have already done on 64bit OS
03:45 masonj      1 year ago, even?
03:45 masonj      you have already done this AMD64, yes?
03:44 masonj      i have just started playing with koha3 on a debian AMD64 dual-core box
03:44 Amit        mason: yes after long time everything is fine here
03:44 masonj      busy with much koha stuff?
03:44 masonj      long time no chat, how is everything over there?
03:43 Amit        heya mason
