05:37 chilts or thinking of it another way, that's the commit message (the string) which belongs to the commit above (the Author, Date, etc lines)

13:46 bigbrovar I guys, I just setup koha and imported converted our spreadsheet  to marc using marcedit and imported the result to koha, everything seem to run fine except i cant search from opac interface, when i try to search for anything i get No results match your search for “kw,wrdl: An Introduction to Philosophy ” in AUST Library Catalog. msg. I have followed the suggestions here[…]on/faq/searching/ but still no go. I read
13:46 bigbrovar that my problem might have something to do with stem preference called ‘OpacSuppression. but am lost on what to do and would appreciate if someone can hold my hands here..

15:25 chobbs bigbrovar:  Just saw your msg in the IRC log re: OPAC searching - I think you may have helped me with your question. I just re-imported my catalog and can't see in OPAC either.
15:25 bigbrovar chobbs: join the club
15:26 chobbs 942n controls suppression. I had not used that prior to my last import, and I think I now have all 90K records suppressed :)
15:26 chobbs Did you set 942n in your MARC import file?
15:26 bigbrovar chobbs: what does control suppression mean, and how can it be enabled
15:27 chobbs It means it does just what you're seeing - hiding biblios from OPAC until the record is unsuppressed.
15:27 chobbs We use it with our current ILS to allow our centralized ofice person to do quality control on bibs before they're visibleto the world through OPAC.
15:27 bigbrovar chobbs: am not sure.. i imported from a spreadsheet converted to marcedit am just a sysadmin trying to help my school library.. know lil of library software but i do learn fast
15:28 chobbs That's exactly where I'm at :)
15:28 chobbs Learned a lot more about library systems in the last 4 months than I ever thought I'd know :)
15:30 bigbrovar chobbs: hmm ok the value for opacsurpression is off in my koha instance
15:31 bigbrovar chobbs: do u suggest i reimport my catalog ( only i dont know how i set 942n doing importing stabe)
15:31 chobbs Hmmm. That seems right. Have you reindexed using
15:31 chobbs If that setting is off, 942n shouldn't matter.
15:32 chobbs Weird, I just looked and all of my records ar enow showing in OPAC.
15:33 * chobbs wonders how/when he fixed that
15:35 bigbrovar chobbs: well on or off still same problem.. I tail -f the koha error.log and here is what get spilt out when i search for something "script not found or unable to stat: /usr/share/koha/opac/cgi-bin/opac/opac-tmpl,"
15:38 chobbs that comma at the end looks weird...
15:38 chobbs Could be difference in how Koha is installed, but my opac-tmpl resides in /usr/share/koha/opac/htdocs/opac-tmpl
15:39 bigbrovar I also set this to run every 10 min "KOHA_CONF=/etc/koha/koha-conf.xml PERL5LIB=/usr/share/koha/lib/ /usr/share/koha/bin/migrat​ion_tools/ -b -a -z >/dev/null" and when it runs i get this error
15:41 bigbrovar this is the full error
15:41 bigbrovar chobbs: yeah i should imagine so
15:42 chobbs Looks like that error is benign:[…]part-one-of-many/
15:43 chobbs ^^ the rebuild error that is
15:44 chobbs Try this to find out if opac-tmpl exists anywhere within your system: find /usr/share/koha/ -name 'opac-tmp*'
15:44 chobbs I see the comma is just an artifact of the error msg, not the actual path - good :)
15:44 bigbrovar ok
15:44 bigbrovar "/usr/share/koha/opac/htdocs/opac-tmpl"
15:45 bigbrovar I got that
15:47 chobbs So now we just need to figure out how to get to use that instead of the non-existent one in cgi-bin
15:47 * bigbrovar god i have been at this koha thing now for all weekend.. time to grab some food :(
15:51 chobbs bigbrovar:  Check your Apache settings. Looks like is aliased out of the htdocs folder; all other files should be coming form htdocs. Here's the relevant section from my koha-httpd.conf:

20:54 chris hi nelsonf
20:54 nelsonf hi chris!
20:55 richard hi chris and nelsonf
20:55 nelsonf I'm trying to learn perl and need to install to my WinXP machine
20:56 nelsonf Should I install the same version as our live Koha install?  Doya know?
20:56 nelsonf hi richard
20:56 chris you want to install koha on WinXP ?
20:56 * richard isn't sure about installing perl on windows
20:57 nelsonf our Koha installation is on SUSE
20:57 chris yeah, i would strongly recommend you use virtualbox, and run a virtual machine with linux on it
20:58 nelsonf hmm, then use the same version of perl?
20:58 chris id use the same version of everything
20:59 chris that way its the same as live, and you can learn with something you know
20:59 larsw the package for HTTP:OAI is now in Debian unstable:[…]ttp-oai-perl.html
20:59 chris w00t
20:59 chris awesome
20:59 larsw the four others Koha needs that are not in Debian are in the queue
21:00 larsw there's a good chance Debian squeeze will have everything Koha needs (not Koha itself, but all of its dependencies), which should make things easier
21:02 nelsonf thanks chris, I'll look into virtualbox.  hope my little laptop can handle it :-)
21:11 chris cool
