01:06 jcamins   andrewma: no one really knows much about C4::Ris anymore.
01:27 andrewma  Hi @jcamins. I see. I have corrected all the warnings except one and that relates to MARC data not stored in utf8. Is utf8 common everywhere now? I should I contact Galen Charlton directly, it interfaces with MARC::Charset::marc8_to_utf8 ?
01:28 jcamins   I don't think I understand what the question is
01:29 jcamins   You probably don't need to contact gmcharlt, though it looks like he may have done a little bit of work on it.
03:32 andrewma  In Ris.pm, the sub charconv() is called in lots of places. It includes a call to marc8_to_utf8() but there are two things I note. 1) the marc8_to_utf8 is not imported via use and 2) it would only get called if a variable $uniout is set to "t". I have searched the entire source tree and find no $unuiout defined anywhere.
03:33 jcamins   Ris.pm is actually another project that was copied into the Koha codebase at some point.
03:35 jcamins   Which is why it feels so different.
03:35 andrewma  If my analysis is correct, I can conclude that charconv() is effectively no longer required and the routine removed entirely. I would really appreciate finding someone who could check my findings.
03:36 * jcamins would suggest submitting a patch doing what you theorize is correct, and adding a note for the QA team about your concerns. And maybe check with paul_p and rangi to see if either of them know anything about it.
03:39 andrewma  Thanks for your help, I have emailed Paul as it was his comment that I was looking to address. Now I just need to learn how to submit a patch - something for me to do tomorrow as it is really late here! Appreciate your help

17:04 andrewma  Hi, I have an installation of koha on a debian box, but now want to also configure a dev environment on the same machine. I think my problem is that the zebra server configuration.
17:08 andrewma  The koha-common daemon is using data from /etc/koha/sites but the dev environment has its config files under /root/koha_dev/etc/zebradb.
17:11 cait      hm i think i wouldn't install it as root
17:11 cait      but create a new user for it
17:33 andrewma  Thanks cait. I am tryign again with non-root user, having opened up permissions to be able to do it (using a virtualbox environment)
17:36 andrewma  The other thing I haven't got in my environment is a sample database of books/publications etc. I have got the environment up and running and create create patrons etc. But have no books to for  them to check out!
17:37 andrewma  Is there anything I can install locally? I have seen the demo site for koha and the set of contributed test database sites.
17:47 andrewma  I had been following this doc on Installing koha on a virtual machine: http://www.joshhertel.com/koha
17:49 andrewma  But I have now found http://wiki.koha-community.org/wiki/Setting_Up_Koha_in_Virtual_Environment_%2B_Using_That_as_a_Development_Environment which should get me a bit further. This doc has a part 1 that is similar to Josh Hertel's doc.
17:49 andrewma  THe wiki also has a section to create a book, so I'll give that a go too.
17:54 cait      cool :)
17:55 cait      i don't know the iinstructions you first followed but i'd recommend following the wiki instructions
18:44 andrewma  The first instructions used VirtualBox which I have used before, so they were helpful.
18:46 andrewma  Just done the dev environment set up and modifed mainpage.pl to add <!-- Dev environment --> at end, and it displayed it in the source - SUCCESS :-)
19:45 kathryn   morning :) Catalyst are  teaching some clients how to fix bugs today! If you know of any little beginner bugs like typos and tagging things, please let us know :)
19:46 cait      hi kathryn - have fun!
19:47 eythian   cait: that's not a bug number! :)
19:47 cait      i know :(
19:48 kathryn   cait thanks :)
20:16 cait      kathryn: when oyu don't have a result on z39.50 search - Try Another Search has wrong capitalization
20:32 cait      hi tcohen
20:37 cait      does someoneelse see bug 13459?
20:37 huginn    04Bug http://bugs.koha-community.org/bugzilla3/show_bug.cgi?id=13459 normal, P5 - low, ---, oleonard, NEW , Datatables paging slightly broken
21:02 cait      someone around?
21:12 kathryn   thanks cait !
21:44 andrewma  Having got a dev evironment up :-) I would like to configure multiple languages to check into translation issues like bug 13350
21:44 huginn    04Bug http://bugs.koha-community.org/bugzilla3/show_bug.cgi?id=13350 trivial, P5 - low, ---, koha-bugs, NEW , Untranslatable strings in aqbudgetperiods.tt
21:44 andrewma  Any tips, please?
21:47 andrewma  Sorry, should RTFM first!
21:48 cait      andrewma: there is a page on the wiki, sec
21:48 cait      additional languages?
21:48 cait      additional languages is http://wiki.koha-community.org/wiki/Installation_of_additional_languages_for_OPAC_and_INTRANET_staff_client
21:48 cait      additional languages
21:48 wahanui   it has been said that additional languages is http://wiki.koha-community.org/wiki/Installation_of_additional_languages_for_OPAC_and_INTRANET_staff_client
21:48 cait      ah :) that one
21:49 cait      and now wahanui knows too
22:02 andrewma  Thanks for the links, as the manual refers to  misc/translation/install-code.pl which I assume has been removed and replaced by the translate command.
22:02 cait      yes
22:02 cait      which manual are you looking at?
22:04 andrewma  The manual opened from the Help link: http://manual.koha-community.org/3.18/en/administration.html#l18nprefs
22:04 cait      yes, we need to fix that
22:10 cait      andrewma: i reported a bug
22:10 cait      have to leave now - good night all
22:15 andrewma  Thanks cait! Bye!
22:17 andrewma  Have installed fr-FR and had several warnings emitted: unconsistent %s count. I guess these will need looking at too.
