13:36 jcamins Hello.
13:36 jcamins hdl: how do you enable xpath searching in Zebra?
13:37 hdl jcamins: you just have to add enable xpath to your etc/zebradb/etc/default.idx
13:37 hdl and reindex
13:39 hdl sorry not default.ids
13:39 hdl sorry not default.idx
13:39 hdl but record.abs
13:40 hdl xpath disable changed to xpath enable
13:42 jcamins Got it, thanks.
13:43 jcamins Any chance you now how to search for all records that do *not* have a specific string?
13:44 jcamins *know how, even
13:45 hdl RPN Queries zebra helps you
13:45 briceSanc joined #koha
13:45 jcamins Ah, thanks.
13:46 briceSanc Hello !
13:46 ebegin Hey briceSanc!
13:47 hdl The _ALLRECORDS index name is used for total database      export. The search term is ignored, it may be empty.            Z> find @attr 1=_ALLRECORDS @attr 2=103 ""                 Combination with other index types can be made. For example, to      find all records which are not indexed in      the Title register, issue one of the two      equivalent queries:            Z> find @not @attr 1=_ALLRECORDS @attr 2=103 "" @attr 1=Title @attr 2=10

14:28 jcamins I have encountered the weirdest bug in the Cataloging module.
14:29 wizzyrea uhoh
14:29 jcamins If you duplicate a 650 field, twice, then try to add a subfield 'v' to the third 650, and delete the extra subfield 'v' from the first 650, Koha erases your entire record.
14:30 wizzyrea Q!
14:30 wizzyrea !!
14:30 jcamins At least, it seems to.
14:30 jcamins (and you're wondering, what possible reason could there be for such a ridiculous series of steps?)
14:31 nengard strange!! off to try it myself :) see if it happens for me too
14:32 jcamins You have to have stuff in all three 650 fields.
14:50 ivanc left #koha
14:51 wajasu left #koha
14:55 nengard jcamins - got distracted like a puppy with ADD :) time to try it for real this time :)
14:56 jcamins At a later date I will try to track down the actual bug and fix it. Right now I just want to check that I'm not nuts, because it is kind of a weird workflow.
14:56 jcamins ;)
14:58 nengard it does happen as you explained!
14:59 nengard but also another problem
14:59 nengard i clicked the clone on the third 650 subfield v and it cloned it on the first, not the third
14:59 nengard this I think is related to the problem
14:59 jcamins Yeah, I have a bug report on that, I think.
14:59 jcamins Or not.
14:59 jcamins Hm.
15:00 nengard see bug 3264
15:00 munin Bug[…]w_bug.cgi?id=3264 normal, P5, ---, oleonard, NEW, UnCloneField() / minus button  in MARC authorities editor can clear all subfields.
15:01 jcamins Yup, that's the problem.
15:01 nengard :)
15:01 nengard what i don't see is the one about clone cloning the wrong field
15:01 nengard so i might add that bug - unless you are
15:02 jcamins If you want to add that bug, be my guest. I won't have a chance to do it until tomorrow.
15:02 jcamins And if you add it, it will definitely be there.
15:05 * owen has looked at bug 3264 before, but couldn't figure it out without rewriting the js from scratch
15:05 munin Bug[…]w_bug.cgi?id=3264 normal, P5, ---, oleonard, NEW, UnCloneField() / minus button  in MARC authorities editor can clear all subfields.
15:07 jcamins Is anyone using biblios in place of the Koha editor anymore?
15:08 * owen had high hopes for it back in a more optimistic time
15:08 jcamins Likewise.
15:09 jcamins How is there no subfield $3 for the 501 field?

15:20 Yemeni anyone could help me with porting in Koha 3 to run in Windows?
15:21 Yemeni see, I've successfully installed Koha 3 in Windows, but, when testing, the MARC records batch-import tool didn't work properly.
15:22 Yemeni everything else worked..
15:22 Yemeni Koha logged a "Premature End of Script Headers".
15:23 owen Yemeni: I don't know anything about it, but I know there should be more to that error than that
15:24 jcamins Yemeni: I think the usual recommendation for running Koha under Windows is "use a virtual machine." The only person I know of who has run Koha on Windows is chris_n.
15:24 Fred left #koha
15:26 Yemeni owen: I'm not into perl so I don't know exactly where things went wrong, but my hunch is telling me the error relates to outputting HTML headers
15:27 owen Yemeni: "Premature End of Script Headers" is a generic Perl error. There should also be a more specific one in your error log
15:27 nengard jcamins it is my understanding that all development and support for biblios stopped when chris when to work for librarything
15:27 Yemeni owen: that's the only error Koha reports
15:27 owen In the log, or onscreen?
15:28 Yemeni on the log
15:28 Yemeni see, the runs in the background (AJAX call)
15:28 jcamins nengard: Okay, that's what I figured.
15:29 Yemeni jcamins: I only have one server, which is a Widnows server, so I'm doing my best to deply Koha 3 in it
15:29 nengard jcamins bug 5206 submitted
15:29 munin Bug[…]w_bug.cgi?id=5206 major, P5, ---, gmcharlt, NEW, cloning a subfield clones the wrong one
15:29 Yemeni jcamins: and it actually ran smoothly, except for the batch-import of MARC records
15:29 jcamins nengard++
15:29 nengard keep getting sidetracked but i do eventually do these things :)
15:30 wizzyrea has anybody had any trouble printing from firefox to starsp200's?
15:30 wizzyrea sp200, that is
15:32 Yemeni hmmm I'll try to make the call to non-AJAXified and see what things go on the screen

16:09 wizzyrea have you guys seen this one before?
16:09 wizzyrea[…]83c1-a5eaee27878e
16:10 jcamins Nope.
16:11 jcamins How many pages of results were there?
16:11 wizzyrea I'm not sure
16:11 chris_n Yemeni: I had no problems doing a bulk import
16:11 jcamins wizzyrea: I'm wondering if there might be a bad record somewhere.
16:11 wizzyrea yea, that's what I think too
16:11 chris_n Yemeni: have you check the koha-error_log?
16:27 stephane_ joined #koha
16:30 Yemeni chris_n: are you still around?
16:31 chris_n sure, for a few minutes
16:32 Yemeni oh
16:32 Yemeni I only get a "Premature end of script headers"
16:32 Yemeni error logged
16:32 chris_n check the shebang line in that pl script
16:33 chris_n btw, what flavor of perl are you using?
16:33 Yemeni the #!C:/strawberry/perl/bin/perl
16:33 chris_n hmm... that's ok
16:33 Yemeni I use strawberry (latest version)
16:33 stephane_ left #koha
16:34 chris_n do the apache logs show any additional info?
16:34 Yemeni nada
16:34 chris_n ie. access.log and error.log
16:34 chris_n it seems that this is caused by pathing problems iirc
16:35 Yemeni I'll print warn messages and try to figure out where things when wrong
16:35 chris_n I'd have to look on my install and that's at home
16:36 Yemeni by the way, you have Koha 3 running correctly on windows?
16:36 chris_n yup
16:36 chris_n but not in production use
16:36 chris_n and I'm not sure it will be stable in production use on Win32
16:36 chris_n it's a bit sluggish on my test box
16:36 Yemeni you had to modify any sources?
16:37 chris_n and that is only with ~7K records
16:37 chris_n most of my source modifications are in HEAD
16:38 Yemeni well I couldn't test its performance because I couldn't upload marc records you see
16:38 chris_n there may be one or two missing, but I have not done much modifying beyond the installer and
16:38 Yemeni i modified and koha-conf.xml
16:38 chris_n I'll take a look when I get home and see if I've missed anything I did
16:38 Yemeni hmm let me check with th about page
16:38 chris_n Yemeni: what version
16:39 chris_n of koha?
16:39 Yemeni 3
16:39 chris_n 3.??
16:39 chris_n there's 3.0.x and 3.2.beta
16:39 Yemeni .00.06
16:40 chris_n ahh... I'm running fairly recent 3.2 code base
16:40 chris_n so maybe some difference there
16:40 Yemeni I dodn't touch the beta
16:40 Yemeni oh I see
16:40 chris_n we run the beta in production here
16:40 chris_n its pretty solid atm
16:40 Yemeni oh really, no problems?
16:41 chris_n none
16:41 chris_n stable will be out in the very near future
16:41 chris_n so for a new install there is little to justify using 3.0.6
16:41 Yemeni hmmm then I'll download the beta and make my experiments on it
16:42 chris_n k, well I'll let you know if I find any changes which affected the importer on my win32 install
16:42 Yemeni or at least copy their source code of the mar-importer
16:42 hdl left #koha
16:42 Yemeni *marc
16:43 chris_n Yemeni: I'd be interested in looking at your mods to the installer, however
16:43 jcamins Yemeni: what size library do you have? If chris_n noticed performance problems with 7k records, that's a pretty big issue with Win32. On Linux it will run comfortably with 165k+ records.
16:43 chris_n are you using git or some sort of version control?
16:44 Yemeni I think I have subversion installed on my NetBeans
16:44 chris_n jcamins: keep in mind that I have done very little tuning or testing on that platform
16:44 * wizzyrea has going on 300k bibs, it's strainy but it works.
16:44 Yemeni I'll show you the mods (email?)
16:44 chris_n Yemeni: can you send me some diffs
16:44 wizzyrea oh sorry, 350k something
16:44 Yemeni jcamins: 6-10k only
16:44 chris_n Yemeni: chris.nighswonger [at] gmail [dot] com
16:45 Yemeni olright
16:45 chris_n tnx
16:45 Yemeni welcome, thanks to you too
16:45 * chris_n has been working toward at least having a working option to install on win32 with strawberry
16:45 Yemeni catch-up later
16:45 chris_n bye
16:47 chris_n jcamins: I'd love to have time to drop about a million bibs into it and see if the smoke got out :-)
16:48 * chris_n thinks its great when the cpu fan sounds like a jet
16:48 jcamins chris_n: heh. I bet it would be spectacular. We started having performance problems on our VM when we had 200k records, but that was with no tuning.
16:49 jcamins I don't think I would want to try that on my home computer, because what would happen if it died? ;)
16:49 jcamins Plus, that would require me having a Windows computer.

18:53 munin Bug[…]w_bug.cgi?id=4289 enhancement, PATCH-Sent, ---, oleonard, NEW, Add a syspref 'OpacNotPublic', to hide OPAC search-bar and force authentication on all OPAC pages
18:53 jcamins I've tested it fairly thoroughly, and it works, but I'm not sure how to sign off on it, since the attached file is a regular patch and not a git patch.
18:54 chris Ahh was the git patch sent to the list?
18:54 jcamins Oh, I'll check.
18:55 jcamins I wasn't around back then.
18:56 cait what is the difference between a git patch and a regular patch?
18:56 cait can't you download the patch file and git am it?
18:56 jcamins I don't think it was, no.
18:56 cait this is the way I do the testing
18:56 jcamins cait: It doesn't say who did it, etc.
18:56 cait ah
18:57 cait right, it seems like some lines are missing at the beginning
18:58 chris Did you apply it alright?
18:58 jcamins The db revision needs to be changed, but other than that it worked.
18:58 chris wasabi did it, id comment on the bug ask him to resend
18:58 jcamins Okay.
18:58 chris Then colin can qa it
18:59 chris And if it passes there no reason why it can't go in 3.4
18:59 jcamins Thanks.

19:03 cait chris: how do you get someone to sign-off on your patches? :)
19:03 chris How do I do it?
19:03 cait I am depending on the community here
19:03 chris 2 ways
19:04 chris Attach to the bug and update it asking for signoff, and email the devel list to ask too
19:04 chris Or
19:04 chris git send-email to a person
19:05 chris Like you might agree to sign off on magnus
19:05 chris And he for you
19:05 cait hm ok, i need to work something out then
19:06 cait it's easier if you have developing coworkers ;)
19:06 chris The first option is a good one too, emailing thr list saying I've attached a patch please signoff on it
19:07 cait i have a long list of not pushed patches, not sure what will get in 3.2 and what will have to wait for 3.4
19:07 sekjal are sign-offs by coworkers just as good as sign-offs by others?
19:07 jcamins cait: I'd offer, except I think I rarely use the features you work on. Plus, I still haven't gotten e-mail set up.
19:07 chris yes
19:08 cait I think chris signed-off on one of my acq patches
19:08 tcohen left #koha
19:08 chris Id expect all companies with more than one developer to be able to get at least one coworker signoff
19:08 chris Yup I did
19:09 cait bug 5090
19:09 munin Bug[…]w_bug.cgi?id=5090 critical, PATCH-Sent, ---, katrin.fischer, NEW, New order from empty record does not save publication year and ISBN
19:09 chris That's why mail to the devel list is good ppl will go, oh I like that, ill try it
19:09 chris And can then sign off on it too
19:09 cait yeah, but some things are perhaps not that important for all
19:10 chris They can ignore that email
19:10 sekjal okay, great!  I'll get a rigourized sign-off procedure in place for ByWater
19:11 jcamins chris: I'm glad you're not expecting companies with only one developer to have coworker sign-offs. ;)
19:11 chris Anyone who complains about getting a mail asking for a signoff pn the devel list, well they will get no sympathy from me :)
19:11 cait jcamins: I will be happy to sign-off on your patches too
19:12 cait I did some of owen, because I was the one reporting the bug
19:12 cait if someone is in the mood, here is my list ;)
19:12 cait[…]id=koha:dev:start
19:12 chris You can't have too many signoffs
19:14 jcamins chris: If I sign off on a patch with an e-mail address that isn't active yet (STILL waiting for my MX records to refresh), will that break anything?
19:14 chris Nope that's fine
19:14 jcamins Cool, thanks.
19:17 rhcl joined #koha
19:18 cait chris: why not use bugzilla to track the sign-offs?
19:18 cait perhaps we could have a new status or somethong for sign-off after patch-sent
19:19 chris Could do
19:19 cait it would be easy to search for patches not signed-off that way
19:19 chris That's what I suggested :) combined with a mail to the list
19:19 chris Cos ppl don't look at bugzilla all the time
19:20 chris Passive + active ftw
19:20 cait hm ok
19:20 cait just thinking to make it easier
19:21 cait I am used to follow the bugzilla mailing list too
19:21 chris Ill add another status, seeking signoff
19:21 sekjal sounds like some git-hooks might be useful here
19:21 chris When I get back to wellington
19:21 sekjal something to automatically do certain actions when a patch is formatted and sent
19:22 chris Sekjal: would need to be local hooks
19:22 sekjal chris:  right
19:22 sekjal but we could put the code up on the wiki, and let developers install/modify it for their local machines
19:22 chris Sent is probably too late
19:22 owen Can you pass a datetime to strftime()?
19:23 chris Ie we want the patch to be signed off before its sent ideally
19:23 chris (Sent to the patches list that is)
19:23 cait attach te patch to bugzilla before sending it out then?
19:24 chris Attached to the bug, signed off, then sent
19:24 cait yep
19:24 chris Or sent to someone, signed off, then to the list
19:24 sekjal oooh, this sounds like it's calling for a flowchart!
19:24 cait flowchart++
19:24 * cait volunteers sekjal to draw a flowchart
19:24 wizzyrea
19:24 chris That way patches to the lsit should all apply
19:24 wizzyrea >.>
19:25 sekjal wizzyrea: you use Gliffy, too?! neat
19:25 chris (Might not work) but at least they have been tested to apply
19:25 wizzyrea I do. Only the free version
19:25 wizzyrea tho
19:25 sekjal I paid for a year, but let it lapse
19:25 wizzyrea I always cheat by printing to PDF (because I use a mac and you can do that)
19:25 sekjal got to keep all my existing Gliffs in excess of 5
19:25 sekjal so I just rename and recycle
19:26 wizzyrea ooh clever
19:26 sekjal I keep worrying they're going to close that loophole...
19:26 * owen found a nice tool for windows that lets him print multiple pages to a single PDF
19:28 chris Ok better start my day bbl
19:35 owen So I guess strftime() needs a time. What do I do if I have an ISO date instead?

19:45 chris_n can someone confirm that cgi-bin/koha/members/ does *not* filter on borrower X?
19:46 Yemeni joined #koha
19:46 Yemeni hello everyone
19:47 Yemeni any Perl-geek around?
19:48 Yemeni I "still" have a problem running in windows
19:49 Yemeni getting a "Premature End of Script" error logged by Koha
19:50 Yemeni I think the problem arises when "close STDOUT" is called
19:53 cait chris_n: I wrote a bug report for that but thought it was fixed
19:53 chris_n cait: maybe... I'm working to upgrade our production box now and see if it goes away
19:54 cait ok, I will give you the bug number, it's probably marked resolved
19:55 Yemeni chris_n: I downloaded the latest revision of from koha 3.2, but it turned out to be exactly the same as of koha's 3.00.06
19:56 chris_n Yemeni: sorry; I'll take a look at my install and see if I can see what's up
19:57 Yemeni hmmm, second thought, I think the problem is in sharing the db connection between the parent and child process (?)
19:57 cait chris_n: can not find it :(
19:59 Yemeni I commented the "close STDERR" and this time the error became:
19:59 Yemeni DBD::mysql::db ping failed: handle 2 is owned by thread 922904 not current thread 264e3cc (handles can't be shared between threads and your driver may need a CLONE method added) at C:/koha/lib/C4/
19:59 chris_n cait: no worry; if it still shows up in HEAD, I'll fix it
19:59 cait ok
19:59 jcamins Yemeni: I think handle 2 is STDERR.
19:59 chris_n the wonderful thing about things breaking on a production install is that they get fixed quick :-)
20:00 owen Okay, how about this: anyone know the best way to take an ISO date and format it according a specific pattern?
20:01 jcamins owen: I do not, but apparently there's a Date::ISO package for Perl.
20:02 jcamins I don't know what it does, but I'll throw that out there anyway.
20:03 Yemeni @jcamins oh it seems right
20:03 munin Yemeni: Error: "jcamins" is not a valid command.
20:04 Yemeni jcamins: oh it seems right
20:04 Yemeni I'll see if that leads somewhere
20:04 jcamins Handle 1 is stdout.
20:05 jcamins Maybe stdin is handle 0? I'm just guessing about that one... I've never had to redirect stdin to anything.

20:30 richard hi
20:38 wizzyrea can someone check this for me, it's kind of complicated but I'll try to explain
20:38 wizzyrea itemtype circ rules
20:38 wizzyrea create a rule for an itemtype that you want to be from home library only in library A
20:38 wizzyrea with a specific patron category
20:38 wizzyrea like, child
20:39 wizzyrea and a rule for the default category defining the same itype as holds from home library only
20:39 wizzyrea in library B
20:39 darling joined #koha
20:40 wizzyrea create only the default rule for home library only, with the same itype as library A
20:40 wizzyrea make an item with your itype
20:41 wizzyrea place holds on it for a default home library A patron, a default library B patron, and a child library A patron
20:41 wizzyrea and a child library B patron
20:41 wizzyrea ugh lol, this is impossible. :)
20:42 wizzyrea oi, never mind. I'm going to have to write this all out.
