12:07 kados fbcit: weird, I haven't seen that before
12:07 kados normally it just kicks you back to the directly
12:08 fbcit yea, it does not happen every time
12:08 fbcit perhaps it is because I have four or five tabs open within a given koha session
12:09 fbcit perhaps can't figure out which cookie to eat :)
12:19 hdl hi
12:20 fbcit hello hdl
12:20 fbcit how are things over the big pond today?
12:20 hdl weather is crappy.
12:20 hdl But sunshine in my head and in my heart.
12:21 hdl how are you ?
12:22 fbcit fine! weather here (NC) is foggy
12:22 fbcit we've been making up for a very long drought with much needed rain
12:29 fbcit hi acmoore
12:30 fbcit I think I fixed the results navigation issues in
12:33 acmoore good morning.
12:33 acmoore oh, good.
12:34 acmoore I saw a patch from you yesterday that looked like it made a bunch of changes to that. It looked good to me.
12:34 acmoore I vote for @results2 as one of the worst named variables of the year.
12:34 acmoore thanks for eliminating it.
12:34 fbcit the navigational links were passing the incorrect type
12:34 fbcit hehe
18:40 fbcit gmcharlt: I think should force a logout before redirection to the installer when it notices a kohaversion change
18:41 fbcit if I am logged in the staff interface as a superlibrarian but not as kohaadmin and the redirection occurs, koha appears to get confused after the update
18:42 fbcit ie. after the update I am presented with an installer login again rather than the standard koha login
18:42 gmcharlt fbcit: I'm not sure that's strictly required at the moment because uses with a /tmp store for CGI::Session, but would agree if/when (as I hope) C4::Auth and InstallAuth get merged
18:42 fbcit I then have to login twice to get back to koha
18:42 fbcit that probably explains the confusion then
18:42 fbcit why isn't installer using C4::Auth to begin with?
18:43 gmcharlt not sure
18:43 gmcharlt for a fresh install, you obviously can't use the DB for CGI::Session storage
18:44 gmcharlt so always defaults to /tmp
18:44 gmcharlt but I'm not sure why that couldn't just be handled with a conditional in C4::Auth
18:58 MatthewMetzger I think I'm seeing a serious memory leak with Koha's on ubuntu hardy.
19:00 MatthewMetzger I upgraded my server from Dapper LTS to Hardy and I'm seeing hang and take large processor percentages and 90% of RAM
19:11 MatthewMetzger I am using the alpha release. Is there an easy way to upgrade from alpha to beta (just tell me if it's in the read me as I'm downloading the beta now).
19:15 atz MatthewMetzger: did you install w/ git?
19:15 MatthewMetzger atz: no I installed from the tar.gz download
19:15 MatthewMetzger I'm downloading[…]0.00-beta2.tar.gz now
19:15 atz you can try just unzipping the tar over the same directory
19:16 MatthewMetzger is there a document on the upgrade procedure? Or I could  try just unzipping the tar over the same directory:)
19:16 atz (shutdown first, unzip, startup, connect to staff interface)
19:16 MatthewMetzger :)
19:16 MatthewMetzger atz: I'm assuming you mean shutdown koha. How is that done.
19:16 MatthewMetzger it's a perl script
19:17 atz apache2ctl stop
19:17 atz (affects all your apache sites)
19:17 MatthewMetzger that stops apache completely (other apache virtual hosts, too) right?
19:17 atz right
19:18 MatthewMetzger thanks. That might mean I'll have to do it after hours.
19:18 MatthewMetzger Thanks for your help!
19:18 atz np
19:24 atz MatthewMetzger: if you are using zebra, that kind of search performance is odd.
19:24 MatthewMetzger I'm not using zebra.
19:24 atz ah.... definitely check that out
19:24 MatthewMetzger I noticed another problem after the  upgrade. This may be the culprit.
19:25 atz zebra is the bomb.
19:25 MatthewMetzger Text::CSV  unknown
19:25 MatthewMetzger in
19:25 atz that's optional
19:25 atz i think
19:25 MatthewMetzger okay. good to know.
19:26 atz if you want reports in CSV, mostly
19:26 MatthewMetzger it was installed before, but I think hardy bumped perl up to 5.10, instead of 5.8
19:26 atz ah, you may get some undiscovered bugs in 5.10
19:26 MatthewMetzger Can you point me to a document on how to get Zebra running properly? I tried before, but couldn't get it up.
19:26 atz which will be useful for us  :)    not so much for you
19:27 MatthewMetzger Do you recommend trying to force it back to 5.8?
19:27 atz not really
19:27 atz you might get more warnings in the logs though
19:28 MatthewMetzger All I can really report is that take up 90% or RAM, much more cpu and sometimes crashes the machine.
19:28 MatthewMetzger often, actually.
19:28 atz yeah, it's just an SQL query if you're not using zebra
19:29 atz how many records did you load?
19:31 MatthewMetzger I believe over 5000
19:31 MatthewMetzger it seemed to work fine on the old server, but the new server chokes on it.
19:31 MatthewMetzger so it's not a hardware performance issue.
19:31 atz hmm... might be an XML parsing thing
19:32 MatthewMetzger Can I force koha to use perl 5.10? reports Perl version: 5.008008
19:33 MatthewMetzger perl -v reports This is perl, v5.10.0 built for i686-linux
19:33 atz interesting... maybe your apache is setup to stick w/ 5.8 ?
19:34 MatthewMetzger would that setting be in apache conf file?
19:35 atz that or in the apache user (or "nobody" or whatever users) environment
19:35 MatthewMetzger www-data (ubuntu)
19:37 atz here's a note about ubuntu and zebra
19:37 atz[…]s-td15456847.html
19:37 MatthewMetzger thanks.
19:38 atz but I think that is fixed.... hmrm
19:38 atz maybe gmcharlt can confirm?
19:39 MatthewMetzger I'll put it in my project notes. It looks like something that would be easy to fix.
19:39 atz yeah basically:  mkdir /var/run/koha/zebradb
19:40 MatthewMetzger speaking of fixes, I should definitely upgrade to beta2 before trying to solve some of these performance issues.
19:42 atz you might look in your mysql.slow_query.log  (if it exists)
19:44 gmcharlt atz, MatthewMetzger: confirm that is fixed as long as you use to start Zebra
19:45 MatthewMetzger thanks for the confirmation (not using zebra yet).
19:46 MatthewMetzger locate mysql.slow_query.log gave me no result.
19:46 atz it might not be turned on... it can be an arbitrary filename in my.cnf
19:46 atz or on the command line for mysql
19:48 MatthewMetzger It's not turned on. I'll turn it on now by uncommenting #log_slow_queries       = /var/log/mysql/mysql-slow.log in my.cnf
22:05 kados great patches today, /me pushes some of them up
09:39 zak masonj
09:40 zak thanks for the email ...i think i got it working when i changed the gif file
