15:03 rhcl Would it seem to make any sense to use something like marc4j to write a java app to convert Sirsi's 999 fields and Koha's 952 fields?
15:03 rhcl
15:04 rhcl sed s/and/to
15:04 gmcharlt rhc1: sure it makes sense, if Java is one's language of choice
15:06 rhcl We've just hired a part-time tech assistant here, and I'm toying with the idea of us taking that on as a project. He and I are both are probably a bit more familiar with Java (or Python mabye) than anything else.
15:07 gmcharlt rhcl: if you go with python, pymarc is a pretty strong project
15:07 gmcharlt edsu and gsf on #code4lib maintain it
15:08 gmcharlt looking at website, the marc4j project seems to have been quiet for the past couple years
15:08 rhcl OK, maybe we'll take a look at that too. Michael is in his last year of college, and just finished a second-level java programming class, so it's fresh in his mind, and he's pretty enthusiastic about NetBeans.
16:45 atz greets shedges
16:45 shedges greetings
16:46 atz i enjoyed a good unconference at OCLC w/ several of your underlings this week
16:47 shedges sorry bout that, trying to get connected to another site, too
16:48 shedges you liked the BarCamp?
16:49 atz yeah, for a first gathering, it went pretty well.  Got to pick the brain of the Cols. Public Lib. regarding their homebrew ILS.
16:49 atz written in COBOL 85, no less!
16:49 shedges it's an old one, for sure

17:10 shedges ~few~ is what bothers me
17:11 nengard ahhhh
17:11 shedges we're getting there
17:11 nengard makes you feel any better i have 2 for another book to write that are due next week :) i too am procrastinating
17:11 nengard gmcharlt - blogging is not writing :) hehe
17:11 nengard it's venting
17:12 nengard no research needed
17:12 gmcharlt depends on how much one agonizes about it ;)
17:12 nengard question on drupal4lib - are there any libraries using koha integrated with drupal?
17:12 kados nengard: I think paul and hdl are working on that for some of their customers
17:13 gmcharlt nengard: also, from India:[…]007-resources.htm appears to be about a workshop about it
18:06 danny2 hello #koha
18:07 gmcharlt hi danny2
18:07 danny2 I am working on setting up a fresh install of koha on ubuntu 8.04, has anyone gotten this to work successfully?
18:07 danny2 I am stuck at trying to get to the web installer and I am getting production mode - trapped fatal error
18:08 atz danny: afaik, a fair number of people are successfully using ubuntu 8 (not sure about the exact version)
18:09 danny2 i've run perl Makefile.PL and it doesn't complain about any dependencies
18:11 pianohacker danny2: Anything helpful in the koha error log?
18:13 danny2 pianohacker: looks like several DBD::mysql errors
18:14 pianohacker Hm
18:14 danny2 [Fri Aug 15 14:12:21 2008] DBD::mysql::st execute failed: Table 'koha.language_subtag_registry' doesn't exist at /home/koha/kohaclone/C4/ line 178.
18:14 danny2 is the first one
18:14 pianohacker Oh, that's normal for the installer, I believe
18:14 pianohacker What's at the end?
18:14 danny2 [Fri Aug 15 14:12:21 2008] Can't call method "id" on an undefined value at line 278.
18:15 pianohacker Huh

18:16 danny2 sorry for the spam
18:16 danny2 thats all of them
18:16 pianohacker brb
18:16 pianohacker lunch
18:18 gmcharlt danny2: what is output of  perl -e 'use CGI::Session::Serialize::yaml;'
18:21 danny2 gmcharlt: Can't locate CGI/Session/Serialize/ in ....
18:22 gmcharlt thought so
18:22 gmcharlt there's a Debian package (libcgi-session-serialize-yaml-perl) that could be isntalled - don't know if it's hit Ubuntu yet
18:22 gmcharlt otherwise, could cpan CGI::Session::Serialize::yaml
18:25 danny2 woo! I had to force install it cause it failed tests, but that worked
18:25 danny2 thank you gmcharlt!
22:21 pianohacker gmcharlt: around?
22:28 gmcharlt pianohacker: what'sup/
22:28 gmcharlt ?
22:29 pianohacker gmcharlt: I'm making a patch for dbversion (just posted to wiki)
