08:12 abdullatef hi there
08:13 abdullatef i need support here
08:14 abdullatef my friend has installed Koha on debian
08:14 abdullatef but unfortunately
08:14 abdullatef the search is not working
08:16 hdl_laptop hi abdullatef
08:16 hdl_laptop Seems like it is a zebra problem
08:16 hdl_laptop Is the zebra server launched ?
08:16 abdullatef oh
08:17 hdl_laptop look at INSTALL.debian
08:17 abdullatef i'm not sure
08:17 abdullatef ok i'll try to look at it
08:18 abdullatef actually, out IT staff has installed it for us
08:19 abdullatef i'll check with him
08:20 abdullatef i'm currently refering this manual
08:21 abdullatef is it mentioned on the manual?
08:23 hdl_laptop in the source your ITstaff downloaded, it should be in a text file INSTALL.debian
08:23 abdullatef ok
08:23 abdullatef thank you very much

11:40 jdavidb hi, cait!  :D
11:40 jwagner Guten tag, cait
11:40 hdl_laptop howdy ?
11:40 cait jdavidb: trying to restart zebrasrv by crontab like you showed in chat some days ago :)
11:42 jdavidb It's a handy way to do it.  In case of a reboot, or (rarely) zebra just falling over on its' own, that little line cranks it right back up again.
11:42 cait yes, very handy.. if I get it to work :)
11:43 collum joined #koha
12:05 cait hah, it works :)
12:05 jdavidb :)
12:07 chris_n g'morning
12:08 jdavidb hi, chris_n. :)
12:09 * chris_n watched Discovery streak up the East Coast through binoculars early this morning
12:09 chris_n very cool
12:15 owen joined #koha
12:16 hdl_laptop cait jdavidb one could also want to setup monit as a handy way to monitor zebra crashes.
12:17 hdl_laptop and relaunch zebra service
12:18 cait hdl_laptop: thx hdl_laptop
12:18 jdavidb hdl_laptop: That'd work, too.  When I thought this cron trick up, I needed something right quick to deal with reboots, and that came to mind.
12:19 cait im still a linux newbie - just glad everything is working now :)

12:43 owen Present!
12:43 hdl_laptop hi.
12:43 hdl_laptop Have you worked on opac-basket and IE integration lately
12:43 hdl_laptop I think so.
12:43 hdl_laptop But I see no patches on master.
12:44 owen IE integration?
12:44 hdl_laptop Internet Explorer.
12:44 owen Yes, but is there a particular problem you're referring to?
12:44 hdl_laptop We have some problems with opac-basket and Internet explorer.
12:44 tomascohen left #koha
12:45 owen hdl_laptop: I don't think I have any pending patches that addressed IE issues directly. I'd be happy to take a look. Is there a bug report for it?
12:45 hdl_laptop|en|Sous%20IE7%20et%208%2C%20les%20paniers%20n​e%20fonctionnent%20pas%20%C3%A0%20l%27opac%20%​3A%0A*%20on%20peut%20ajouter%20une%20et%20une%​20seule%20r%C3%A9f%C3%A9rence%2C%20il%20refuse​%20d%27ajouter%20les%20suivantes%0A*%20quand%2​0on%20veut%20aller%20voir%20le%20contenu%2C%20​il%20r%C3%A9pond%20%3A%20panier%20vide%2C%20m%​C3%AAme%20qd%20on%20a%20mis%20une%20notice
12:55 owen hdl_laptop: On the first problem, does that refer to adding items to the cart from the search results page?
12:56 hdl_laptop yes
12:57 hdl_laptop those might be old. But I don't have seen them adressed on master branch
12:58 owen That one works fine for me in Internet Explorer 8
12:58 owen And I can open the cart just fine. It shows everything I added.
13:00 hdl_laptop thanks for testing anyway

14:28 ebegin Guten tag cait!
14:28 ebegin Hi Owen!
14:28 ebegin Bonjour hdl_laptop!
14:32 ebegin about Bug 4208
14:32 ebegin
14:32 munin Bug[…]w_bug.cgi?id=4208 critical, P1, ---,, NEW, Many submit buttons are not translatable in 3.2
14:33 ebegin any idea how to bring the buttons' label translation back?
14:33 cait there is a patch and I think chris already updated po files
14:33 cait I wrote the bug report
14:34 owen No patch attached to the bug
14:35 cait
14:35 cait this is the patch, I think its not in head and not sure its what chris did
14:36 ebegin ok, danke cait!
14:36 owen it makes it hard to trace the status of bugs if submitted patches do not reference the bug number and patches are not attached to the bug report
14:36 cait but I can find "renew all" and others in pootle now
14:37 cait owen, you are right. I told chris I would test the po-files but had no chance before the easter holidays.
14:43 ebegin Actually, that patch seems to be submitted by hdl.
14:45 cait yes, chris just told me he had updated the po-files - dont know what he did. I just thought it might be that patch.

14:49 wizzyrea chris_n I"m so jealous, I always wanted to watch a shuttle launch
14:49 wizzyrea and now I'm running out of chances
14:50 chris_n wizzyrea: we had run out too, except a reschedule caused this one to fall in the twilight zone
14:51 chris_n it was very nice; we saw ISS on the pass before launch and then the shuttle 15 min or so later
14:54 wizzyrea and lucky that you didn't have any clouds!

15:56 chris_n wizzyrea: LOL :)
15:56 DarrellUlm Hmmm, but then the Zebra on a VM...move that off?
15:57 DarrellUlm It is not that bad, 140,000 items, 110,000 bibs. It works well for a test machine.

17:07 owen Is it possible to use the tar command to extract the contents of an archive to the current directory rather than to the subdirectory the tar file wants to create?
17:16 jdavidb I think there's a flag for that, owen, but i've never used it.
17:34 nengard stupid question
17:35 jwagner nengard, should we take that personally????
17:35 jwagner :-)
17:35 nengard still typing...
17:36 nengard how do i query my items table to find items where the barcode is null? when  i do this "select barcode from items;"  i see about 10 but when i just try to get their itemnumbers i get no results ...
17:36 nengard mysql> select * from items where barcode = 'NULL';
17:36 nengard Empty set (0.00 sec)
17:37 jwagner select * from items where barcode IS NULL ?
17:37 ebegin owen, the way I'm doing it is that I'm creating the directory first, then cd to that directory and tar xvfz <tar file dir>/<tar file name>
17:37 nengard DUH!!!!! i'm on so many damn drugs!!
17:37 nengard worked
17:37 nengard thank you!!
17:38 ebegin Anybody can explain me what the Rotating Collections feature is used for?
17:49 nengard ebegin - it's getting removed from 3.2 ....
17:49 nengard which is why i didn't document it and can't answer your question :) hehe
17:49 ebegin :)  ok, so I want loose time transalting the related strings! Yeah!

18:46 joetho_ks2 I was reading something about this last week (the "rotating collections" feature) and thought it might bear some exploration
18:46 joetho_ks2 Our consortium has a rotating collection that is currently not automated at all.
18:47 joetho_ks2 We have plans to automate it someday, but are not in a huge hurry.
18:47 owen joetho_ks2: The start of a rotating feature was added to 3.2, but last I heard gmcharlt was going to take it out because it's not quite ready for prime time
18:47 joetho_ks2 For one thing, it rotates to libraries that are not part of our consortium, which presents some problems
18:48 joetho_ks2 This collection also rotates to libraries that are not automated at all, which presents an even bigger problem.
18:49 joetho_ks2 And we thought through some of the issues involved in making something like this work in an ILS and looked around some.
18:49 tomas left #koha
18:49 joetho_ks2 Didn't find anything, but again- we are not in a hurry to open this particular bag of worms.
18:50 joetho_ks2 So I am not surprised that it is being moved out of the beta 3.2
18:51 joetho_ks2 note to self: contact Paul (?) sometime and see if he is going to work on it again for a later version
