22:30 mib_mike    Thanks again, that will solve my problem.
22:29 gmcharlt    ensures that the item data is embedded in the bib record so that it can be indexed
22:29 mib_mike    Thanks, gmcharlt.  What does sync_items_in_marc_bib.pl do?
22:24 gmcharlt    sync_items_in_marc_bib.pl, rather
22:24 gmcharlt    then run the isync_items_in_marc_bib.pl script
22:24 gmcharlt    mib_mike: roughly speaking, insert into items select newbiblionumber, newbiblioitemnumber, other, other, columns from deleteditems where itemnumber = foo;
22:22 mib_mike    One at a time! Please!
22:19 mib_mike    What would be a good way to do that?
22:19 mib_mike    One of the original biblio records has been recreated, and I'd like to add the deleted items to it.
22:18 mib_mike    It looks like some one deleted the corresponding item records using koha, as they are in the deleteditems database.
22:17 mib_mike    When I say "deleted" I mean via mysql, not koah.
22:17 mib_mike    To make it work, I deleted some records with bad marc
22:16 mib_mike    I was having problems reindexing my catalog.
22:16 mib_mike    Hi guy
21:47 wizzyrea    pretty unlikely though
21:47 wizzyrea    I keep hoping that they'll turn our downtown into a pedestrian mall
21:47 darling     is still better than a lot of places for sure
21:47 darling     it's sure different, and nice, is why it's been so annoying when they removed one of the pedestrian malls
21:46 wizzyrea    but, I do feel your pain, I really liked being able to walk around so easily and not fear for my life from cars all the time
21:46 darling     true
21:45 wizzyrea    at least you have a chance to dodge between them
21:45 wizzyrea    better than 10 cars though!
21:45 wizzyrea    I know!
21:45 robin       and very fast
21:45 darling     wizzyrea, they're very big buses
21:45 wizzyrea    we don't design for people, we design for cars.
21:45 wizzyrea    seriously, here, you'd just as soon be hit by one car, then another and another if you tried to walk anywhere
21:44 wizzyrea    at least it's only busses
21:43 darling     oooo, I feel some gimp fixes coming on...
21:43 richard     interestng that they don't show busses on the image
21:42 robin       yeah. I still haven't been hit, but I know it's going to happen soon.
21:41 darling     i miss the wellington where you could walk down the street w/out getting run over by buses as often
21:40 darling     ooo, 2 for 1 mojo coffee
21:36 robin       http://advent.wellingtonnz.com/ <-- for anyone still missing Wellington...
20:53 darling     it'll do that
20:53 darling     yeah
20:53 darling     hehe
20:53 wizzyrea    :) happy friday darling (that still sounds funny to me)
20:53 darling     happy friday morning, kohaland
20:15 hdl         yes... working (9PM here.)
20:14 wizzyrea    I'm doing well, and you? Almost Friday!

19:28 cait        ok, changing laptops, will be back in a few minutes
19:28 cait        perhaps a field that takes the barcode and cancel the hold would be nice

19:26 ibot        what's up, richard
19:26 richard     hi
19:23 sekjal      the Holds Awaiting Pickup screen's 'Over' tab just lists them, and provides a Cancel button, but there doesn't seem to be a way to bulk or automatically cancel them, if there are a lot
19:22 sekjal      for holds that have been waiting longer than the ReserveMaxPickUpDelay system preference number of days, what should be done with them?
19:21 sekjal      holds question

19:04 cait        that's the reason...
19:04 cait        that's because the trains get late
19:04 cait        ah, the heading says it's because the routing switches(?) freeze

18:48 cfouts      trains ought to be able to plow through, I would hope
18:47 cait        travelling by train on the weekend - hope I will not have any trouble
18:47 cait        worse in the north - I am on the south border
18:47 cait        cfouts: it's still ok down here I think

18:20 chris       i liked the lord of the rings one too
18:20 chris       smart
18:20 * druthb    is old enough, of course, to remember both the first season of South Park, and the first season of it's...ermm...predecessor in youthful humor, Beavis & Butt-Head.
18:20 chris       yep
18:19 trea        it was pretty awesome that blizzard agreed to give them a server and the help to get that one done
18:19 chris       the world of warcraft episode though ... that was something approaching art
18:18 chris       if you werent into it by the 9th season .. you were never going to be :)
18:17 * druthb    remembers now why she never quite managed to get into South Park...
18:16 chris       heh
18:14 owen        [off] If I'm going to get into cat pee I'd rather it be for this: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Major_Boobage
18:12 trea        guess that's the price you pay for antioxidants
18:12 owen        Yup. Who knew?
18:12 trea        apparently the acai berry smells like a cat box?
18:11 trea        i actually have some orange flavored emergen-c in my cupboard at home
18:11 trea        oh dear
18:11 owen        trea: Someone gave me some of that stuff
18:10 chris       http://www.emergenc.com/index.php/products/original/acai-berry
18:10 chris       hehe
18:10 owen        It's never good when people walk by your office saying 'What smells like a cat box?'
18:10 chris       thats a particularly bad smell
18:10 trea        wait, what?
18:10 chris       hehe
18:10 owen        that's what everyone thought when they smelled that drink
18:09 chris       still drinking cat pee owen?
18:09 owen        Hi chris
18:08 chris       morning
17:52 cait        hi trea :)
17:48 trea        hello cait
17:47 cait        hi #koha
17:17 jcamins     Time to eat lunch so I can get uptown by 2.
16:45 kf          bye all - bbl :)
16:41 nengard     k
16:40 wizzyrea    (but I haven't tested… I've got one of my librarians on the phone >.<)
16:40 wizzyrea    then yea it sounds like it's not working for whatever reason
16:39 nengard     oh wait - just two of them and then tested between the two
16:39 nengard     yes
16:38 wizzyrea    and you set that for every library?
16:36 nengard     they want no transfers or checkins
16:36 nengard     we turned it off for all item types
16:36 nengard     or transfer rules
16:35 nengard     wizzyrea - by rules you mean circ rules?
16:33 * kf        is getting tired obviously
16:33 kf          and you are here
16:33 kf          see it now :)
16:33 sekjal      and we're working on getting some sponsorship right now, actually
16:32 sekjal      yes, the RFC was written by me
16:32 sekjal      oh, yes, I just responded to that email
16:32 kf          hdl: I talked to sekjal about hourly loans, it's his rfc (I think) and afaik it's not sponsored yet
16:30 wizzyrea    well it's by itemtype, I'm assuming you were testing with an itemtype that you set rules for?
16:29 nengard     brb
16:29 wizzyrea    oh I see… looking
16:29 nengard     it's all very confusing and i'm pretty sure it doesn't work in any case
16:28 nengard     but the description on the page only mentions checkins - not transfers
16:28 nengard     no numbers can be entered
16:28 nengard     wizzyrea it's just a check box - allow or don't allow
16:27 druthb      No, it's not a holiday, nengard; it's just been pretty quiet this morning.
16:27 wizzyrea    maybe that's a misconception
16:27 wizzyrea    I always thought that branch transfers prevented a sending library from sending too many items
16:27 druthb      chocolate chip! :)
16:26 nengard     looks like i might have to come back when more people are around ... is it a holiday and I didn't know it?
16:26 nengard     (asked by a librarian in the room)
16:25 nengard     what kind
16:24 nengard     heh
16:23 * druthb    doesn't have an answer, but offers cookies instead!
16:22 nengard     not the answer i wanted :)
16:21 wizzyrea    hmmm
16:21 druthb      howdy, class, from Washington, DC!
16:19 nengard     this too seems to say it will do that but we're not seeing that happen - so i want to confirm that i understand properly and if i do then i might need to report a bug
16:18 nengard     the way i read this tool it limits letting branches checkin items from other branches - but it also mentions transfers and so i'm confused.  we want to prevent books from being transferred and we want to prevent people from checking in books at branches other than the one that owns the book
16:18 nengard     i have a branch transfers limit question - it's a long one
16:17 wizzyrea    hi from Kansas :)
16:17 nengard     hi all - i'm in training say hi to the class
15:56 cfouts      greetings, kf
15:55 kf          hi cfouts
15:51 magnus      dinnertime!
15:43 cfouts      good morning/afternoon hdl
15:39 wizzyrea    stupid spam filter
15:39 druthb      hi, hdl.
15:39 wizzyrea    …oh I feel dumb
15:39 hdl         hi druthb
15:39 hdl         hi cfouts
15:38 * druthb    waves to cfouts.
15:30 jcamins     Of course, the speed had less to do with the Mac-ness and more to do with the fact that the new computer is an order of magnitude more powerful than his old one.
15:30 * magnus    thinks hate is too strong a word, but...
15:29 * magnus    hates his mac
15:29 sekjal      for the convenience factor, I probably should have gone with Mac.  Open source is better, but it can take longer to beat into submission
15:29 * jcamins   installed Linux under VirtualBox, too. It took a half hour.
15:29 druthb      hmmmm.
15:28 * wizzyrea  still loves her mac, openness and ideological arguments aside.
15:28 owen        Shiny, shiny cookies.
15:28 wizzyrea    (we have cookies)
15:28 wizzyrea    welcome to the dark side
15:28 wizzyrea    heh
15:26 jcamins     It was almost eery.
15:25 * jcamins   just switched to a Mac, and was amazed at the complete lack of problems he encountered setting it up last night
15:25 owen        No fair, Linux drivers trump just about everything
15:24 sekjal      wizzyrea: I'll see your git irritation, and raise you "issues with proprietary graphics drivers on Ubuntu"
15:24 munin       hdl: The operation succeeded.
15:24 hdl         @later tell nengard sorry for delay
15:23 munin       hdl: The operation succeeded.
15:23 hdl         @later tell nengard list koha-docs finally created...
15:16 * wizzyrea  mutters with irritation at git. This worked last week you little wank.
15:14 jcamins     Sadly, he'll have to wait until he moves.
15:14 * jcamins   desperately wants a baking stone
15:14 wizzyrea    :)
15:14 wizzyrea    FOODNERDS
15:14 * jcamins   got a candy thermometer for the holidays last year.
15:14 wizzyrea    yea, it's totally easy
15:13 jcamins     Isn't it easy, too?
15:13 * wizzyrea  may require a candy thermometer, however.
15:13 jcamins     :D
15:13 wizzyrea    it was guuuud
15:13 wizzyrea    jcamins: we made your fudge last night
15:08 druthb      :)  come on down.  leave problems behind.
15:08 * jwagner   plots to sneak down the hall & grab yet another one....
14:59 druthb      Chocolate chip.  They're from my grocery, but they're pretty decent.
14:58 * trea      loves cookies
14:58 trea        \o/
14:57 * druthb    waves to trea, and offers a cookie.
14:52 sekjal      hi, magnus
14:51 magnus      hi there sekjal
14:39 druthb      hi, jcamins!
14:38 magnus      hiya jcamins
14:37 jcamins     Good morning, #koha
14:30 kmkale      bye all
14:16 * magnus    thanks druthb for the anchor, might come in handy
14:16 * druthb    hands magnus an anchor, just in case.  Wouldn't want him to blow away!
14:03 druthb      Hi, kf_a !
14:01 kf_a        morning us :)
14:01 * magnus    is experiencing wind of "Near gale, 16 m/s" - but there's probably a bit more in the gusts
14:00 Nate        morning magnus!
13:59 magnus      hiya Nate
13:45 Nate        mornin!
13:44 * druthb    waves to Nate.
13:43 * druthb    gets out her slingshot, loads a cookie, and aims west.
13:43 jwagner     owen, these ARE real cookies!  but I'm eating them all up :-)
13:43 owen        So far it's a pretty awesome diet.
13:42 owen        Thanks druthb, but I'm on a diet: I only eat real cookies.
13:42 * druthb    waves and offers a cookie to owen.
13:09 jwagner     Hi kmkale
13:05 kmkale      hi druthb jwagner
13:04 kmkale      so far I got ybook reader, lucidor, fbreader and calibre
13:00 * jwagner   eats cookies
12:59 * druthb    arrives, with cookies.
12:59 kf_a        sorry, have to go - next meeting
12:59 kf_a        ah, the address looks right in the mail on koha-patches
12:59 marcelr     perhaps something with sendmail config on test server
12:58 kf_a        hm?
12:57 marcelr     kf_a: got an error on your email address??
12:52 kf_a        marcelr++
12:52 kf_a        marcelr: thx for sign-off!
12:45 kf_a        sorry, I don't use reader software
12:32 kmkale      Want o put it on a Kiosk with this Touchscreen in the library
12:31 kmkale      can anyone recommend me a nice book reader software for Ubuntu? One which has good page flip animation etc?
12:21 kmkale      first ibot now ghosttalker nice going #koha
12:20 kmkale      :)
12:20 jcamins_a   Despite the fact that I've been talking for forty-five minutes or something like that. ;)
12:20 jcamins_a   I'm not really here.
12:20 jcamins_a   Hi, kmkale.
12:20 kmkale      hi jcamins_a
12:20 jonefuroy   i would hate to proove you wrong!
12:19 jcamins_a   You can do this! :D
12:19 jonefuroy   see ya guys! bye!
12:19 jcamins_a   Good luck, jonefuroy.
12:18 kmkale      no multitouch but still nice
12:18 kmkale      hehe just got the Dell SX2210T touchscreen working with Ubuntu 10.10 Awesome!! :)
12:18 jonefuroy   but ill dual boot debian and ubuntu... haven't tried debian before so why not!
12:18 jonefuroy   iwe tried install ubuntu 2 times now..
12:17 jonefuroy   but now i have to go! Thank you guys! I'l be back like crack!
12:17 jcamins_a   jonefuroy: if you really want Ubuntu, probably INSTALL.ubuntu works.
12:17 magnus      nah, you are being a very determined librarian! :-)
12:16 jonefuroy   im just being a baby! ill install dabian and begin from scratch!
12:16 magnus      without the satisfaction of having done it the hard way, that is...
12:15 jonefuroy   i know... but I wanted to do it myself...!
12:15 magnus      it won't import records, but should give you a running koha
12:15 jcamins_a   jonefuroy: if you were setting up the computer from scratch, I'd suggest just trying the install.DEBIAN instructions.

12:15 magnus      jonefuroy: there IS a cd
12:14 jonefuroy   thank you jcamins_a , magnus and eweryone else!
12:14 magnus      uninstalling and reinstalling might be worth a try as a last resort
12:14 jonefuroy   im dying here! cant any of you just make a cd that does ewerything by it self! (including importing my catalouge) ;)
12:13 jcamins_a   I also need to cook some breakfast.
12:13 jcamins_a   I don't know what to suggest.
12:13 jcamins_a   Hm.
12:13 jonefuroy   mysqladmin: connect to server at 'localhost' failed error: 'Access denied for user 'root'@'localhost' (using password: NO)'
12:11 jcamins_a   Try connecting now.
12:11 jcamins_a   o.O
12:11 jonefuroy   start: Rejected send message, 1 matched rules; type="method_call", sender=":1.3005" (uid=1000 pid=12217 comm="start) interface="com.ubuntu.Upstart0_6.Job" member="Start" error name="(unset)" requested_reply=0 destination="com.ubuntu.Upstart" (uid=0 pid=1 comm="/sbin/init"))
12:11 jonefuroy   i did : $ service mysql start
12:11 jonefuroy   Rather than invoking init scripts through /etc/init.d, use the service(8) utility, e.g. service mysql start  Since the script you are attempting to invoke has been converted to an Upstart job, you may also use the start(8) utility, e.g. start mysql
12:10 jcamins_a   What are the errors this time?
12:09 jonefuroy   hmmm new errors, but i think it maybe helped
12:07 * jcamins_a is getting his operating systems confused...
12:07 jcamins_a   sudo /etc/init.d/mysql start
12:07 jcamins_a   No, like this:
12:06 jcamins_a   I think that's right.
12:06 jcamins_a   It will if you restart the computer, but you can avoid that by running: sudo /etc/rc.d/mysql start
12:06 jonefuroy   jeeez!
12:06 jcamins_a   MySQL doesn't automatically start on Ubuntu.
12:05 jcamins_a   There we go.
12:05 jcamins_a   Ah-ha!
12:05 jonefuroy   no but check this mysqladmin: connect to server at 'localhost' failed
12:04 jcamins_a   And you tried just hitting enter when it asks you for the password?
12:04 jonefuroy   mysqladmin -u root -p create koha
12:04 jcamins_a   The instructions from the how-to are kind of odd, so I'm not sure where this could have gone wrong.
12:03 jcamins_a   Hm.
12:03 jonefuroy   should i remove mysql and do a fresh install?
12:02 jonefuroy   nope
12:02 jcamins_a   And you don't recall setting the password earlier?
12:02 jcamins_a   Okay.
12:01 jonefuroy   ERROR 1045 (28000): Access denied for user 'root'@'localhost' (using password: NO)
12:00 jonefuroy   Update root MySQL password (if dselect didn't do it for you already)
12:00 jcamins_a   (without the -p)
12:00 jcamins_a   jonefuroy: try running: `mysql -uroot`
12:00 magnus      jonefuroy: what did you do to get the error?
11:59 magnus      jonefuroy: not stupid, but learning, which is good! ;-)
11:59 kf          ok, going to lunch - see you all later!
11:59 kf          ah
11:59 jonefuroy   I started from scratch... newest koha following http://git.koha-community.org/gitweb/?p=koha.git;a=blob;f=INSTALL.ubuntu.lucid;h=0ee096ed244a0b25f7b6be893723c3a5a2602bad;hb=HEAD
11:59 kf          http://everydaytechy.blogspot.com/2010/05/install-koha-30000-on-ubuntu-910.html
11:58 kf          but now I can install koha in under an hour :)
11:58 kf          hope you can solve your problems and it was hard for me too the first time (knowing nothing about linux)
11:58 jcamins_a   I'm trying to find the howto you used, so I can hopefully offer you non-speculative advice.
11:58 jonefuroy   see ya kf ! thanks
11:58 jonefuroy   kf but i feel so stupid
11:58 kf          it's lunch time here - and I have a meeting later :(
11:58 magnus      what did you do to get the error?
11:57 jcamins_a   This keyboard is going to take some getting used to...
11:57 magnus      you can do it, jonefuroy!
11:57 jonefuroy   if i did... how can i reset it... i dont think i did... im not shure
11:57 kf          jonefuroy: it's really not that hard and people will try and help you - don't give up!
11:57 jcamins_a   Did you set a password for MySQL/
11:57 jonefuroy   i'm sooo close to giving up :')
11:57 kf          are you at the web installer step?
11:56 kf          :)
11:56 jonefuroy   ok! Im stuck again... Access denied for user 'root'@'localhost
11:56 kf          and hi jared
11:56 jcamins_a   Right.
11:56 kf          and ask here if you get stuck :)
11:56 jcamins_a   I mean, the instructions that come with Koha.
11:55 jcamins_a   Very. I'd suggest following the instructions.
11:54 jonefuroy   i know... strange to put that in howto...
11:41 jcamins_a   Gstreamer is used for audio on Linux.
11:41 jcamins_a   I haven't learned how to scroll back on my new computer yet, but I can definitely say that gstreamer is *not* needed by Koha.
11:38 jonefuroy   hmrf ...
11:37 kf          me neither
11:24 magnus      never heard of it...
11:20 jonefuroy   and gstreamer aswell was maybe a bit odd?
11:18 magnus      yeah, shouldn't be any reason to install java!
11:17 jonefuroy   ill try again with the newest version!
11:16 jonefuroy   i had to take a phonecall
11:16 jonefuroy   sorry guys!
11:13 kf          jonefuroy: you can download it and look at the install files like magnus suggested - ubuntu is pretty easy to install. I think the howot is perhaps not ideal - I never needed java like it suggests
11:11 kf          jonefuroy: and 3.2.1 has a lot more nice features :)
10:57 magnus      i would stick with the INSTALL.*-files: http://git.koha-community.org/gitweb/?p=koha.git;a=tree
10:53 kf          I think the tests failing should not happen in a newer version - although it's probably not as bad as you think
10:52 jonefuroy   but is it because its old i get the errors?
10:52 jonefuroy   i used this: http://everydaytechy.blogspot.com/2010/05/install-koha-30000-on-ubuntu-910.html
10:52 jonefuroy   testing ... and maybe learning how to install so i can use it in production later...
10:51 kf          the installation manuals are updated in the newer releases too
10:51 kf          which howto are you using?
10:51 kf          is this for production or testing?
10:51 jonefuroy   i try to do ewerything the howto says...just as it says it
10:50 kf          that's old
10:50 jonefuroy   koha-3.00.00
10:49 ibot        yes, kf?
10:49 kf          ibot?
10:49 ibot        which version are you upgraing from ?
10:49 kf          jonefuroy: which version?
10:48 jonefuroy   and a lot more... :(
10:48 jonefuroy   make: *** [test_dynamic] Error 255
10:48 jonefuroy   Failed 2/19 test programs. 2/38 subtests failed
10:48 magnus      what does it say?
10:47 jonefuroy   when i run : sudo make test it seems like iwe done something really wrong...
10:45 jonefuroy   :)
10:45 * jonefuroy = the Fury Koha Newbie NR1
10:44 kf          junefuroy, sorry
10:44 kf          hi magnus and jonefury
10:44 magnus      good plan! ;-)
10:44 magnus      too many new things at once? ;-)
10:44 jonefuroy   iwe been trying to understand what im doing and not just c&p ewerything... ;)
10:43 jonefuroy   new computer, new network and new try, but still having problems...
10:43 jonefuroy   hi magnus
10:42 magnus      hiya braedon|l and jonefuroy
10:42 jonefuroy   hello folks!
10:33 munin       magnus: The current temperature in Bodo, Norway is 5.0�C (11:20 AM CET on December 02, 2010). Conditions: Light Rain Showers. Humidity: 76%. Dew Point: 1.0�C. Windchill: -2.0�C. Pressure: 29.74 in 1007 hPa (Steady).
10:33 magnus      @wunder bodo, norway
10:29 munin       kmkale: The current temperature in Mumbai, India is 30.0�C (3:40 PM IST on December 02, 2010). Conditions: Smoke. Humidity: 66%. Dew Point: 23.0�C. Pressure: 29.74 in 1007 hPa (Steady).
10:29 kmkale      @weather Mumbai
10:22 praba       ya.. and books we have around 3 million
10:12 magnus      btw: that sounds like an impressive amount of borrowers! ;-)
10:12 magnus      i'm afraid i'm out of ideas...
10:11 praba       yea.. let me give a try on that.. is there any other ideas that i can try ???
10:10 magnus      importing csv into the db is as you say another option
10:10 magnus      you could create a script that turns your file into SQL-commands and then run tht against the database
10:09 praba       There is no command line solutions.. thought to try csv to sql import but high risk involves in it so keep thinking
10:08 magnus      hm, i don't think there is a command line script for importing patrons...
10:08 praba       i want to reduce the time
10:08 praba       ya exactly..
10:08 magnus      hm, so you can upload, but the processing is taking too much time?
10:08 praba       already 2 lakhs patron is there in DB..
10:07 praba       file is not big but it is taking too much time to import thats the problem
10:06 magnus      and they are still too big?
10:05 praba       ya.. I have splitted the files and each contains 10K to 25K
10:04 praba       <magnus>: FYI i have already turned off borowers log.. and using "ignore if patron exists"
10:04 magnus      praba: one alternative is to divide the huge file into smaller ones
10:03 praba       magnus : the given doc says the standard import.. but in my case. i have half a million patron that has to be imported into koha.. now it is taking too much time to import in GUI mode. any other alternate to this ??
09:48 magnus      praba: http://koha-community.org/documentation/3-2-manual/?ch=x5928
09:35 praba       i have large number of borrowers that has to be imported in to koha
09:34 praba       hiii ... any solution for borrower quick import?
09:29 marcelr     morning all, joining #koha I am looking for someone to signoff three small patches
09:17 kmkale      fredericd: i checked it. the patch is applied and cleanly
09:16 kmkale      fredericd: yes
09:15 fredericd   kmkale: The JavaScript code is in the template. Do you conduct your test using 'en' templates?
09:00 kf          kmkale: sorry, never seen that and have a meeting now :(
08:59 munin       04Bug 4955: critical, P5, ---, henridamien, NEW, adding to basket with no item throws error
08:59 kmkale      fredericd: perhaps the patch should also check for itemtype as suggested here.. http://bugs.koha-community.org/bugzilla3/show_bug.cgi?id=4955 ??
08:52 kmkale      can anyone help me with why I get "Can't use string ("") as a HASH ref while "strict refs" in use at /home/kk/kohaclone/cataloguing/addbiblio.pl line 683" when I create a new ACQ framework by from any framework such as default or fast add and  try catalouging with it?
08:47 kmkale      fredericd: whereas in my default framework I have 952$v, g & p as mandatory
08:46 kf          ah :)
08:45 kmkale      kf: will comply ;)
08:45 kmkale      fredericd: I applied the patch and it allowed me to save by just selecting the item type
08:45 kf          wilco?
08:45 kmkale      s/wico/wilco
08:45 kmkale      kf: wico
08:41 kf          it's not good :( you could update the bug with your findings - perhaps it will push it back into people's minds too and someone will fix it.
08:40 kf          yeah
08:40 kmkale      and *lots* of messages in the error log
08:40 kmkale      exactly
08:40 kmkale      kf: yes
08:35 kf          if you do it should save without error - if you forget you will get an evil looking perl or xml error
08:35 kf          kmkale: have you selected an item type for your item?
08:34 kf          kmkale: let me check
08:32 munin       04Bug http://bugs.koha-community.org/bugzilla3/show_bug.cgi?id=4955 critical, P5, ---, henridamien, NEW, adding to basket with no item throws error
08:32 kmkale      i think i have ran into bug 4955 here :(
08:25 kf          good morning #koha
08:14 kmkale      anyway modifying default
08:13 kmkale      humph. I tried to create a new ACQ framework this time by copying the Fast Add Framework. No go. Still I get "Can't use string ("") as a HASH ref while "strict refs" in use at /home/kk/kohaclone/cataloguing/addbiblio.pl line 683" when I try catalouging with it.
08:12 fredericd   great. Just modify barcode subfield
08:09 kmkale      ok may be I can
08:09 kmkale      as I cant see a way of making default frameworks 952 fields mandatory
08:09 kmkale      deleting and retrying to create acq framework
08:08 kmkale      yes I created by copying from default framework
08:08 fredericd   Is your ACQ populated with subfields. Have you created them by copying default framework subfields?
08:07 fredericd   kmkale: Sorry I'm wrong. It works with a new created ACQ framework. No bug there. I forgot to populated my new ACQ framrwork with subfields
08:06 kmkale      btw if i try a new catalaouging with the newly created ACQ framework I get a *Can't use string ("") as a HASH ref while "strict refs" in use at /home/kk/kohaclone/cataloguing/addbiblio.pl line 683.* error
08:05 kmkale      ok. will try making a few 952 fields in the default framework as mandatory
08:05 fredericd   You can try with default framework
08:04 fredericd   kmkale: I have also that... It may be another bug. I take a look. But the patch doesn't deal with that
08:00 kmkale      still I get "No ACQ framework in Acquisitions :(
08:00 kmkale      then I made a few fields in 952 as mandatory for the ACQ framework
08:00 hdl         kmkale: it will use that one for Acquisitions :D
07:59 kmkale      I went to Home › Administration › MARC Frameworks  and created a new framework with code ACQ
07:59 hdl         kmkale: create a framework named ACQ
07:59 fredericd   Ignore it. It's not related to the bug handled by the patch
07:58 kmkale      how do I get rid of the "No ACQ framework.." box?
07:58 fredericd   kmkale: Modify an item field of your default framework
07:58 fredericd   hdl: hello
07:58 kmkale      fredericd: but I dont see any * marks, so how will I know if its supposed to stop if these are not filled in?
07:57 hdl         hi fredericd
07:57 hdl         hi all
07:55 fredericd   Default framework is ok in this case
07:55 fredericd   kmkale: It's not a problem. The bug is independant of the use framework
07:54 kmkale      fredericd: ?
07:42 kmkale      fredericd: I have created a new MARC framework with code ACQ. Still when I try to add to basket in acquisition it says No ACQ framework. What am I doing wrong?
07:38 kmkale      ok. I have marked 952 $ e, g & v as mandatory for the acq framework
07:35 fredericd   After applying the patch, you will get an error message
07:35 fredericd   kmkale: ok. That's it. You will see that you can save the order. That's the problem
07:35 kmkale      is that ok?
07:35 kmkale      then apply the patch and retest
07:34 kmkale      fredericd: creating a acq framework now. WIll mark a few 952 fields such as price etc as mandatory and test
07:34 fredericd   The patch add some JavaScript which prevent saving the order with mandatory item fields empty
07:34 fredericd   kmkale: You can see * BUT you can also save the order with * item fiels empties
07:24 cait        ok, have to get ready for work - will be back later!
07:24 cait        subfields of 952 / 995 depending on your MARC flavor
07:23 cait        and you can create a new framework called ACQ and mark things mandatory for testing
07:23 cait        ah, first you can check if you have marked a subifled in your default framework as mandatory - only those should show up as mandatory in acq
07:23 kmkale      1 min on call
07:23 kmkale      no
07:22 cait        kmkale: do you have an ACQ framework created?
07:22 kmkale      fredericd: I created a new branch of origin/master and trying acq before applying the patch. I cant see any fields with a * while adding item to order :(
07:15 praba       cait : I have chosen ignore if it exist
07:14 cait        I noticed it was slower when I chose overwrite instead of ingore at the bottom of the page - not sure it will help much.
07:13 praba       cait: i'm matching cardnumber with existing borrowers.. how to stop matching with existing borrowers?
07:05 praba       fredericd: thanks fredericd.
07:04 praba       fredericd: No i didn't do that.. i ll do that now
06:59 fredericd   praba: Have you disabled BorrowersLog syspref?
06:58 cait        if you can try again a bit later - people here change during the day - lots of timezones involved
06:58 fredericd   praba: Do you speak Perl?
06:58 praba       yea. Looking for help..
06:57 cait        and use a script or search/replace things to make it to sql - but perhaps someone else can help you much better with this question
06:56 cait        you would have to look at the table structure carefully
06:56 praba       or how can i change .csv files to sql to put in DB directly..
06:55 cait        praba: afaik ther eis no script you can use from the command line
06:55 praba       cait :: is there any terminal way to import borrowers?
06:54 cait        perhaps you should try loading them via mysql - but be careful with your codes and numbers.
06:54 praba       yea.. moreover mydb already having 3 million books
06:54 cait        that's a lot to load from the browser
06:54 cait        praba: wow
06:54 praba       cait: half million borrowers
06:53 fredericd   A bug could be filled for that
06:53 fredericd   borrowers loading in generally slow. Since it's just a matter of populating one table (more if attributes), I don't understand why
06:52 praba       cait:Total borrowers is around 5 lacs.. already i have loaded 3 lacs to mysql db in GUI mode.. still i have 2 lacs data in different csv files .. each contains 8K to 25K in terms of number
06:52 cait        praba: what is a lacs?
06:52 praba       Totals borrowers is around 5 laacs.. already i have loaded 3 lacs to mysql db in GUI mode.. still i have 2 lacs data in different csv files .. each contains 8K to 25K in terms of number
06:51 cait        fredericd: ok :)
06:51 fredericd   cait: yes. I count on that to make the acquaintance of translators
06:50 cait        are you matching them with existing borrowers? (this makes things slower in my experience)
06:50 cait        praba: how many borrowers are you trying to load?
06:50 cait        fredericd: ok - drop you a short mail after we registered?
06:49 praba       cait:: you could also create sql statements to fill the table??  how to do this cait ??
06:49 munin       cait: The operation succeeded.
06:49 cait        @later tell owen I updated and rebased 5422_state on my repository - could you perhaps test again?
06:49 fredericd   cait: Right/permissions will have to be reaffected
06:49 munin       cait: Error: "ater" is not a valid command.
06:49 cait        @ater tell owen I updated and rebased 5422_state on my repository - could you perhaps test again?
06:48 praba       i have spited files with 8K to 10K borrowers in size.. but the whole process ll take almost 6 days it seems to complete 5 lacs..  right now i'm having members around 3 lacs in mysql db so its too slow to import
06:47 cait        fredericd: pootle question: you wrote we have to register again on the new site - what about the rights/permissions?
06:46 cait        fredericd: good to see this getting fixed!
06:46 cait        I have only imported up to 1000 borrowers - that was reasonably fast on our server
06:45 praba       ya.. Thats wat i'm doing it.. But still it takes lat of time to import
06:45 munin       04Bug 5446: normal, PATCH-Sent, ---, henridamien, NEW, Item creation in Acquisition module doesn't control mandatory fields
06:45 cait        praba: you could also create sql statements to fill the table - but this has it's on risks and the borrower upload tool is much safer. I would try to split your file into smaller files if loading from the browser takes too long.
06:45 fredericd   and bug description here: http://bugs.koha-community.org/bugzilla3/show_bug.cgi?id=5446
06:45 kmkale      wilco
06:44 fredericd   http://lists.koha-community.org/pipermail/koha-patches/2010-November/013107.html
06:44 fredericd   The patch is here:
06:44 kmkale      sure
06:44 fredericd   It's very basic
06:44 kmkale      yes if I can understand it ;)
06:44 cait        you could split up your borrower file
06:44 fredericd   kmkale: Would you be available to test a patch and sign-off?

03:56 Brooke      right. Found a glove. Fought solely sabre. Heard a non Librarian correctly use the word "metadata" in a non Library setting. I can die happy, or alternatively go to sleep.

03:32 robin       ibot: status
03:30 Brooke      heh
03:28 ibot        it has been said that i am still small - he needs to learn more :)
03:28 chris_n     ibot: ibot?
02:29 robin       no problem :)
02:29 wasabi      and robin, for the tmux tip ;)
02:29 wasabi      aaah, thanks ibot
02:28 ibot        rumour has it tmux is like screen
02:28 wasabi      tmux?
02:28 wasabi      tmux is like screen
02:28 ibot        wish i knew, wasabi
02:28 wasabi      ibot: tmux?
02:27 wasabi      tmux?
02:25 wasabi      screen and putty even, lol
02:25 wasabi      ive used some gonzo home-grown setups in the past
02:25 robin       I've never used it, but I know people who quite like it.
02:25 robin       also have a look into tmux, it's like screen
02:25 robin       oh
02:25 robin       it really is
02:25 robin       let me know what you end up with
02:25 wasabi      term/screen setup is a black art, for sure!
02:24 wasabi      i hope to experiment with a better setup over xmas
02:24 robin       no worries
02:24 wasabi      anyhoo, i now have more options, thnx to you
02:23 wasabi      not everything i do is in a screen session
02:23 wasabi      yep, ive avioded that method so far
02:22 robin       Also, screen has some copy/paste ability itself
02:22 robin       not something I have to do a lot, fortunately.
02:22 robin       yeah, that's a bit annoying.
02:22 wasabi      on multi-screen text
02:21 wasabi      but using my screens scrollback, i cant 'cut' properly
02:21 wasabi      yes, i do already… ish
02:20 robin       wasabi: use screen's scrollback
02:19 wasabi      … switch my term perhaps
02:19 wasabi      might has to do some more experimenting...
02:18 wasabi      bugger, the screen bottom-menu has borken my term's scrollback
01:32 robin       definitely a benefit :)
01:31 wasabi      s/session/window/
01:30 wasabi      yes, i no longer have to rely on a terminal.app to do my screen session switching
01:25 robin       it's quite useful
01:25 robin       hehe
01:24 wasabi      lol
01:24 wasabi      i wanted that for my screen , for about 5 years! :/
01:21 robin       sweet as
01:21 wasabi      bamm!, thanx :)
01:20 robin       hardstatus string "%{.bW}%-w%{.rW}%n %t%{-}%+w %=%{..G} %H %{..Y} %d/%m%C%a"
01:20 robin       hardstatus alwayslastline
01:20 robin       hardstatus on
01:20 robin       $ cat /home/robin/.screenrc
01:20 robin       wasabi: sure thing, I'll just paste it here, it's short
01:20 wasabi      i wanted to upgrade to your 'status-bar' thingy :)
01:20 wasabi      any chance you could flick me your .screen.conf file?
01:19 robin       wasabi: yup
01:19 wasabi      robin:  about?
00:13 wasabi      wow, those race-suits are blingy
