16:34 owen Hi kados
16:35 kados owen++
16:44 thd good morning kados
16:44 kados morning thd
16:45 thd kados: there are serious problems installing a Perl module for Koha on Debian
16:47 thd kados: PDF::Reuse::Barcode requires Barcode::Code128 which fails tests after make
16:47 thd kados I even tried older versions and they all fail tests
16:50 kados hmmm
16:53 kados thd: you used the cpan module or the debian package?
16:53 thd kados: I could not find the Debian packages wh‎slef built
16:54 kados thd: what you want is:
16:54 kados apt-get install libpdf-reuse-barcode-perl
16:55 kados that will handle all the dependencies for you
16:55 thd kados: I tried all the CPAN versions
16:55 kados don't use CPAN
16:55 kados use the debian packages
16:55 kados remove all the CPAN versions
16:57 thd kados: I could not install any CPAN versions unless I chose to install after a failed make test
16:58 kados thd: wget
16:58 kados thd: chmod 755
16:58 kados ./ PDF::Reuse::Barcode
16:59 thd kados: It is not installed
16:59 thd and never was on my system
17:00 thd kados: However I do not have libpdf-reuse-barcode-perl as an available package
17:01 thd kados: Where did yours come from?
17:01 kados maybe try google and/or backports?
17:01 kados I just looked on google :-)
17:01 thd :)
17:06 thd kados: I see it on Google in testing and unstable but it is not in backports which or I would have it and I just updated my package lists
17:09 thd kados: does slef not have some packages which he built from unstable?
17:10 thd kados: I have this well documented problem which has plagued several versions of Barcode::Code128[…]07/msg544810.html
17:11 kados thd: you'll have to ask slef
17:11 thd :)
17:12 kados thd: remember that I haven't instlaled Koha in over a year ;-)
17:12 kados well, I haven't installed dependencies on koha
17:12 thd kados: I assumed that you  would know the source of your installed package :)
17:14 kados you assumed incorrectly :-)
17:24 kados fbcit-away: you around?
17:28 kados paul or hdl here?
17:40 thd kados: I finally found it.  I knew I had it somewhere. ;)
17:45 kados cool
17:56 thd kados: given the problems maybe those Debian packages should be noted in the README.txt
18:33 kados thd: good idea
18:33 kados thd: did you finally get them working?
18:35 thd kados: I did not have time to test because I am preparing for French class but I will find out tonight
18:36 thd I would have had more sleep if I had found that page last night :)
02:08 kados thd: you around?
