13:17 Anarka heys :) is there some more detailed information on how to get ZOOM working on windows ?
13:17 Anarka it seems so easy by the changelog but....
17:02 milo93 hi all:)
17:02 milo93 Anarka thank you for bringing me here
17:02 milo93 so kind of you
17:03 milo93 I'm configuring apache for 2.2.6 on debian
17:03 milo93 intranet (8080) is ok
17:03 milo93 but I can't access opac main
17:04 milo93 apache shows something related to mod_python
17:04 milo93 precisely this:
17:05 milo93 [Wed Nov 29 13:59:59 2006] [notice] mod_python: Creating 20 session mutexes based on 20 max processes and 0 max threads.
17:05 milo93 [Wed Nov 29 13:59:59 2006] [notice] Apache/2.0.54 (Debian GNU/Linux) mod_python/3.1.3 Python/2.3.5 PHP/4.3.10-18 mod_perl/1.999.21 Perl/v5.8.4 configured -- resuming normal operations
17:05 milo93 any help will be enormously appreciated
17:05 chris hmm koha doesnt use python at all
17:06 chris so i doubt that is what is causing the problem
17:06 chris have you looked in /usr/local/koha/log/opac-error_log ?
17:07 milo93 yep but I check it again now since it didn't make much sense to me
17:09 chris also, 2.2.7 has been released, so if i was you, id probably go with it
17:21 milo93 chris I think saw something else
17:21 milo93 I can't open it
17:22 milo93 I changed permissions but it just does not open
17:22 milo93 I will go for 2.2.7 but I would like to have a demo working
17:23 milo93 I'll be back in a mom
17:30 milo93 it seems there's a problem with line 12

17:30 chris right missing perl module
17:30 milo93 sorry if this is a little invasive
17:30 chris you using debian right?
17:31 milo93 yes
17:31 chris apt-get install libdate-calc-perl
17:31 chris oughta do it
17:31 milo93 great!
17:31 milo93 thank you so much chris
17:32 chris np
17:34 milo93 :))
17:34 milo93 it works fine:)))
17:34 milo93 thanks again
17:35 chris no problem, i think the 2.2.7 installer checks thats installed, 2.2.6 didnt obviously
17:36 milo93 no i didn't in fact it checked  some missing modules I add to add before installing but not libdate-calc-perl
17:36 milo93 it didn't*
17:42 milo93 chris may I ask you something else?
17:43 chris yep
17:44 milo93 Configuring on windows I can't come over a problem with
17:44 chris ahh
17:44 milo93 trying to add an empty biblio I get an internal server error related
17:44 chris i should have said ask me anything except about windows
17:44 milo93 to XML::Marc
17:44 milo93 it can't locate default record format
17:45 chris i dont know anything about running koha on windows
17:45 milo93 ah ok :)
17:45 chris all the developers use a unix type system, like linux
17:45 chris and rob weir kindly ports it to windows .. but we dont test/develop for windows .. if it works there its a bonus :)
17:46 milo93 yes:) I got it when I tried to get help through the lists ... lonely
17:46 milo93 but it doesn't matter i think I will stick to debian
17:46 milo93 configuring it (3 days ago) has been quite something
17:48 milo93 I mean something extraordinary, having a working OS with a 100MB cd
17:49 milo93 i know this is so newbie
17:49 milo93 :)
17:50 chris :)
17:55 milo93 but what's most amazing is koha
17:55 milo93 you've done such a work
17:56 mason and he's just had a baby too!
17:57 milo93 !
17:57 chris hehe, lots of other ppl work on koha
17:57 milo93 congratulations!!
17:57 chris thanks
18:00 milo93 yeah I know, what I mean is that if you compare the costs of koha and the costs of say Aleph500 here in Europe, you have less for an incredible sum of money
18:01 chris yeah Koha is really getting there, if you look at koha zoom
18:01 chris
18:01 chris and the upcoming koha 3.0 ... they do some neat stuff that even the really expensive systems dont
18:02 chris whereabouts in europe are you milo?
18:05 milo93 sounds great
18:05 milo93 Milano - Italy
18:05 milo93 I am a University librarian
18:05 milo93 150.000 documents
18:06 milo93 I am trying to develope a koha demo both for the library of my university and for a filming school
18:07 milo93 the latter is quite interesting since their collection could start with koha
18:08 milo93 in my university we are planning to migrate movie catalogue on koha as a start up
18:08 milo93 at least that's what I would like
18:10 chris excellent
18:10 chris you might like to take a look at near east university
18:10 chris they run Koha
18:10 chris Tumer (who works there) has done a lot of koha work too
18:10 chris lemme get the url
18:11 chris is their main site
18:11 chris and[…]koha/
18:12 Anarka milo93 a lot more going on here ;)
18:13 chris and Anarka is from sweden?
18:13 milo93 :)
18:13 milo93 hi anarka
18:13 milo93 thanx again
18:13 Anarka chris well... living in sweden :)
18:13 Anarka np :)
18:13 chris ah right
18:14 Anarka im trying to setup koha on a school library but with a "very" unusual install... using IIS
18:14 Anarka it does work :P
18:15 Anarka at least until now we havent really started using it
18:15 chris yep, that will be the real test :)
18:15 Anarka the zoom problem is still there
18:16 Anarka and without z3950 search... well i kinda dont want to even start using it
18:16 milo93 Did yoy solve z39.50? chris it seems quite neat catalogue they have, didn't know they use marc 21 in turkey
18:16 chris so what stops z3950 on windows, you can install Net::ZOOM ?
18:16 Anarka nah we did the next good thing... came home :P
18:16 Anarka no... thats the problem
18:17 chris ah, whats stopping that, installing yaz?
18:17 milo93 you should use debian, it took me three days to do what it took me two weeks in windows
18:17 Anarka i kinda feel stupid because it looks so simple in the cvs and now in 2.2.7
18:17 milo93 and i am a total newbie
18:17 Anarka milo93 i use debian... but the school doenst ;) debian is your friend
18:18 Anarka the changelog... basically says... install zoom and there you go
18:18 chris yep
18:18 Anarka its the install part that seems hard
18:18 milo93 yep i guessed
18:18 chris yep, installing perl modules on windows isnt easy, especially when they rely on some c libraries
18:19 chris i think people have done it though
18:19 milo93 my marc 0.83 is still there uninstalled
18:19 Anarka so it isnt that simple as the changelog suggest it ?
18:19 chris oh it is
18:19 chris all you have to do is install zoom
18:19 Anarka eheh
18:20 chris its just the OS making that hard :-)
18:20 chris but Tumer runs koha on windows
18:20 Anarka i will only touch that next week... i hope i can get better info until then
18:20 chris and he definitely has z3950 going
18:20 Anarka hummm
18:21 chris in fact he wrote the new z3950 search stuff
18:21 Anarka no guide for installing it ?
18:21 chris so you could ask on the koha-devel list how he did it
18:21 chris well there might be at indexdata
18:21 Anarka ok :) tnx for the tip
18:21 chris ZOOM wasnt written by the Koha team, its a 3rd party module we use
18:22 chris so they ( might have some docs on installing it on windows
18:22 Anarka honestly i was a bit it wont work on IIS... but after a few trial and error its working
18:22 Anarka i installed it at home using debian... damm... that was easy :)
18:22 chris yeah theres no reason why it shouldnt work with any webserver
18:23 chris but varying degrees of trickiness involved :)
18:24 Anarka like... copy main dir... try a few menus in koha, error file missing copy file to the desired location
18:24 Anarka not the best method but... it works :P
18:26 chris :)
18:27 milo93 guys I am leaving I have a working ILS to configure
18:27 milo93 :D
18:27 Anarka nice :)
18:27 milo93 good luck Anarka
18:27 Anarka tnx :)
18:27 milo93 tnx chris
18:27 milo93 for everything
18:28 chris no problem
18:28 milo93 bye all
