11:00 toins kados, i'm not surprise by this result because in _new_Zconn there is : my $host = $context->{'listen'}->{$server}->{'content'};
11:00 toins and $server is equal to 'biblios'
11:00 toins and in koha.xml there isn't <server id="biblios"> ...
11:01 kados your koha.xml is different than mine then ;-)
11:01 toins when i change 'biblios' to 'biblioserver'
11:01 toins $host = tcp:@:9900
11:01 toins and it impossible to connect to 'tcp:@:9900'
11:01 kados why?
11:02 kados your koha.xml should have these sections:
11:02 kados <listen id="biblioserver" >tcp:@:9900</listen>
11:02 toins because when $Zconn->connect($host, 0);
11:02 kados <!-- BIBLIOGRAPHIC RECORDS -->
11:02 kados <server id="biblioserver"  listenref="biblioserver">
11:02 kados    <directory>/koha/zebradb/biblios</directory>
11:02 kados    <config>/koha/etc/zebra-biblios.cfg</config>
11:02 kados    <cql2rpn>/koha/etc/</cql2rpn>
11:02 kados </server>
11:02 kados <serverinfo id="biblioserver">
11:02 kados        <ccl2rpn>/koha/etc/</ccl2rpn>
11:02 kados        <user>kohaadmin</user>
11:02 kados        <password>K0h4R0ck$</password>
11:03 kados </serverinfo>
11:03 toins $host must be like this => localhost:9900/biblios (for example)
11:03 toins i have this yes...
11:03 kados the host is not the problem
11:04 kados are you sure ccl2rpn exists?
11:04 kados the file is in the right place?
11:05 kados and check permissions on the file
11:05 toins ok
11:05 kados make sure the user running zebra can read it
11:10 toins all seem good :-/
11:47 tumer kados: with IE at or you have "home" and "your library" buttons apperaing on top of title and blocking it
11:47 tumer while in search they are correctly on the left
11:47 kados tumer: interesting
11:47 kados tumer: could you file a bug for that?
11:48 kados tumer: I'm sure Owen will take care of it asap
11:48 tumer i thought you could do it now thats why
11:48 tumer k
11:48 kados :-)
11:49 owen That makes me mad... I know I had that fixed once. I wonder what changed...
11:49 tumer owen do you still need a bug report?
11:49 owen No, I'll take care of it
11:49 tumer it was not there a couple of days ago
11:50 tumer kados:did you read me about GSM?
11:50 kados tumer: no

11:53 kados tumer: I would like to ... ping me again when you go live with it
11:53 tumer k

13:03 cm kados, are you in?
13:08 hdl kados ?
13:08 dewey i think kados is becoming a true Perl Monger...
13:09 hdl is there a pb with cvs ?
13:09 cm no.  I was just wondering which version of should be in dev_week.
13:10 cm I remembered last week he had problems committing one to dev_week, and it was committing to head instead.
13:11 cm I keep having to roll back to 1.28, because the one in dev_week, produces errors for me.
13:44 kados cm: I think hdl is working on that
13:45 cm ah, good.
19:17 qiqo hi
19:17 dewey niihau, qiqo
19:17 qiqo how are you dewey
19:18 qiqo just wana ask a couple of questions..
19:18 qiqo im having problems installing koha and i get this message: DBI connect('Koha:','kohaadmin',...) failed: Can't connect to MySQL server on '' (111) at /usr/local/koha/intranet/modules/C4/ line411
19:19 qiqo this is 2.2.6
19:29 kados hi qiqo
19:29 kados looks like maybe your mysql user doesn't have permissions or maybe mysql isn't running
19:31 qiqo i think its running
19:31 qiqo its in memory
19:32 kados try connecting to mysql using the username and password in koha.conf
19:32 qiqo yup it connects using mysqcc
19:34 qiqo il try to upgrade to 4.1
19:34 qiqo im using 4.0
19:34 kados hang on
19:35 kados first off, you should be using 4.1
19:35 qiqo ahh ok
19:35 kados I think I told you before, 4.0 doesn't properly handle the charsets
19:35 kados also
19:35 kados there are differences in the way that the password field are handled between mysql versions
19:35 kados not sure if 4.0-4.1 is a prob
19:35 kados chris: do you know offhand?
19:37 qiqo so 2.2.6 is not compatible with 5.0?
19:37 kados correct
19:37 kados mysql 5.0 changed a lot of things
19:38 kados and there's not really any incentive for us to modify Koha
19:38 kados by incentive I mean: noone is interested in sponsoring this change
19:38 qiqo uhuh
19:41 qiqo its a sad thing that people from libraries would prefer the expensive ILS rather than funding opensource projects
19:41 qiqo a rich university here acquired millenium ils.. for almost a million dollars
19:42 qiqo yeah.,
19:43 kados millenium is garbage
19:43 qiqo haha as ive thought
19:43 qiqo then theyd have to pay for each module
19:43 qiqo silly people
19:44 chris one thing to check qiqo
19:44 chris is mysql listening on
19:44 qiqo yeah?
19:44 chris ie on the network
19:44 qiqo how do i check,
19:44 qiqo i think so,,
19:44 chris rather than just a socket
19:44 chris telnet 3306
19:45 chris also check your /etc/my.cnf file
19:45 chris or /etc/mysql/my.cnf
19:45 chris look for skip-networking
19:45 qiqo Connected to
19:45 chris if thats there, it will only be listening on a socket
19:45 qiqo so ill comment that out?
19:45 kados which should be OK
19:46 kados not all of my koha servers have networking enabled chris
19:46 chris well u are trying to connect to it over the network
19:46 kados not if it's, that's non-routable
19:46 chris yes but you probably dont try to connect to them on
19:46 chris thats still a network socket
19:46 kados right
19:46 chris not a unix socket
19:47 qiqo errm
19:47 chris but now i have to get back to work, busy as hell over here :)
19:47 qiqo theres no skip network thing
19:47 qiqo there is bind
19:47 qiqo i can connect thru mysqlcc
19:51 qiqo i think the upgrade fixed the problem
19:53 qiqo ei brb take a showe
20:01 qiqo guys why is the background white?
03:04 hdl hi
03:06 thd good morning hdl
03:07 thd hdl: I have an encoding question from BNF records
03:07 btoumi hi all
03:08 paul hello world
03:08 thd hdl: BNF records have strange characters enclosing non-filing article characters
03:09 toins hello world
03:10 thd hdl: I have them as c288 and c289 but they do not map to any likely non-asian character
03:11 hdl thd: should be either [] or <>.
03:11 thd hdl: why do they not map correctly?
03:12 hdl thd: why are there wars ? :D I don't know.
03:12 thd hdl: do you know which of [ ] or < > is preferred?
03:13 thd hdl: that is which are preferred by AFNOR cataloguing rules
03:14 thd ?
03:15 hdl thd: a third :
03:15 hdl |
03:16 hdl Look at 331 field... Intermarc.
03:16 hdl (Extract from BNF catalogue)
03:17 hdl But I don't have any other clue to answer your question.
03:17 hdl I know though taht some librarians LOVE <> for non filling characters.
03:24 osmoze hi
03:24 dewey hey, osmoze
