00:45 tdavis hey I have a question about contributing code...anybody up to helping me contribute?

00:50 tdavis hey I have a question about adding some code that has given me trouble on more than one occasion...anybody up to help?
00:53 tdavis or maybe just point me in the right direction to editing with GIT
00:54 hdl ask your question
00:56 tdavis in the Koha sites need to add directory access to the opac and admin in order to get it up and running (for a debian install)
00:56 tdavis at least that has been my experience
00:56 tdavis first of all im not sure if it is just me so I'm a little nervous about adding it to a code revision
00:57 tdavis So i suppose my question is...where do I go from here...
00:57 NateC left #koha
00:57 eythian a) what do you mean by directory access, I don't think you need to do something like that (but it's possible your setup is a bit different, and adding it would make it more robust)
00:58 eythian b) you can make a patch and ask someone to look at it. In this particular case, ask me :)
00:58 tdavis Well I followed the INSTALL.ubuntu file to a T and was having problems
00:58 eythian oh wait
00:58 eythian not debian packages?
00:58 eythian in that case, I'm not the best person to help
00:58 tdavis yeah not the packages
00:58 tdavis but the sites file
00:59 tdavis for apache
00:59 eythian but regardless, create a bug and attach a patch to it, and send it to koha-patches, and someone will look at it and accept it or not.
00:59 tdavis ok, and koha-patches is on the community site correct?
01:00 eythian jup
01:00 eythian well, it's a mailin list and I'm sure it's documented there.
01:00 tdavis ok I'll see if i can dig it up...thanks for the help

14:43 Barrc Does anyone know how to stop the SIP server from expecting a login? That is, to make it start and sit listening on the socket for SIP strings instead of a login. Version 3.2.x
14:45 gmcharlt Barrc: briefly, have it use raw instead of telnet as the communications protocol
14:46 gmcharlt Barrc: slightly less briefly, that means setting the transport in SIPconfig.xml to RAW
14:47 Barrc gmcharlt: Thanks!!
14:47 Guest156 might that have consequences though, like, if you're using self-check, it won't know which branch you're coming from?

14:47 Guest156 is now known as wizzyrea
14:48 SharonNEKLS joined #koha
14:48 Barrc Well, you would most likely have a SIP instance for each branch and only log the self check in to the one for that branch?
14:49 Barrc So, SIP on TCP port 6001 for Branch A but SIP 6002 for Branch B etc.
14:49 wizzyrea I suppose you could do it that way
14:49 gmcharlt yes, that would work
14:49 wizzyrea I've always just used users
14:50 gmcharlt also, for obvious reasons it's a good idea to not expose raw SIP ports to the world
14:50 Barrc Problem with using users is that not all new devices that use SIP support telnet conncetions, only sockets
14:50 Barrc we can authenticate via SIP though

17:19 lavamind hello
17:19 lavamind I'm trying to get send out a serials claims notification but no email is sent
17:19 lavamind I've made sure email is enabled an the cronjobs are se tup
17:27 tcohen hdl: mit license is incompatible with koha for inclusion?
17:29 hdl left #koha
17:39 mizst tcohen: as far as I know, MIT license is compatible with anything. But specifically Koha is GPL, and MIT is compatible with GPL.
17:39 tcohen mizst: thanks
17:50 rhcl lavamind: it will help if you post what message server you are using. Postfix? Sendmail?
17:50 rhcl Can you send email manually from your server, using, for example, mailx?
17:50 lavamind rhcl: postfix, but the notification doesn't even get there
17:50 lavamind yeah, no problem
17:50 lavamind I'm thinking that maybe I'm not testing it right
17:52 rhcl what does your /var/log/ show?
17:52 rhcl and possibly also /var/log/messages
17:54 lavamind rhcl: my mail log shows a bunch of entries like cron warnings sent to root
17:54 lavamind like I said, the notifications arent hitting postfix at all
17:55 lavamind I think its either a setup issue, or I dont know how to send notifications :/
17:55 lavamind [Fri Mar 11 12:29:53 2011] [error] [client] [Fri Mar 11 12:29:53 2011]  at /srv/koha/instances/koha_prof/in​tranet/cgi-bin/serials/ line 77, referer: http://prof.koha.cmaisonneuve.[…]serials/
17:56 lavamind Bad or missing From address: '',
17:57 rhcl humm, sounds like something possibly internal to Koha, which I'm less familiar with than the OS sysadmin stuff.
17:58 rhcl Obviously you'll have to fix the "From Address" issue.
17:58 mizst lavamind: just curious ... is sendmail or nullmailer also installed on the same system?
17:58 lavamind yeah, I've send KohaAdminEmail and the site's email adress
17:59 paul_p left #koha
17:59 lavamind mizst: postfix takes over sendmail
17:59 mizst sometimes it does not, in some rare cases.
17:59 lavamind it installs a handler from sendmail stuff, and removes sendmail
17:59 mizst in those cases, you have to remove them.
18:00 lavamind mizst: on debian here, so shouldnt be an issue
18:00 mizst okie
18:00 lavamind debian packaging : flawless ;)
18:00 lavamind well, for stuff like postfix anyway
18:03 lavamind hrmm : From           => $userenv->{emailaddress},
18:03 mizst I found in ubuntu that some of the dependencies of koha include nullmailer and it gets installed by itself. So it's something to be cautious about.
18:05 lavamind mizst: the squeeze package doesn't seem to have that dependency, as its not installed on my system
18:13 mizst btw, your other emails in koha are working and only the claims notifications don't work?
18:17 lavamind I got it, its working
18:18 lavamind I was using user "zero" ie, "koha"
18:18 lavamind I had to create a borrower profile, set an email adress for it, give it superlibrairian permissions
18:19 lavamind when I'm logged using a "real" user, it works
18:20 mizst thanks for documenting that one. :-)
18:20 tcohen left #koha
18:22 lavamind now my problem is the email encoding is borked
18:31 lavamind the contents of the letter is iso8859-1, i don,t get it
18:31 lavamind the database is utf8 through and through
18:40 lavamind yay ok I had to convert the text; might have been copy-pasted from a webpage or something
18:43 mizst how did you convert the text?

21:02 rangi did you report them ?
21:03 cait yes
21:03 cait hm or no
21:03 cait one of them
21:03 rangi if so yep that's ok

21:24 tdavis Has anybody successfully implemented an AD LDAP configuration with Koha?
21:25 rangi yes
21:25 tdavis was there a tutorial you used or are you just that good
21:26 rangi you just need to edit the koha-conf.xml file to have the right settings
21:26 rangi there are inline comments
21:26 tdavis I am relatively sure I have the right settings in that file...are all those fields required (such as address)
21:27 rangi or you can read the pod in
21:27 tdavis If i am having problems binding do you know where the error and warn logs go?
21:27 tdavis sorry I am pretty new to Koha
21:27 rangi the apache logs
21:27 tdavis ah
21:28 rangi you might want to switch debug on
21:28 rangi to get more info
21:28 tdavis ok, i can do that in the web interface correct?
21:29 rangi partially, the is an env variable you can set too, or set $debug=1 in the .pm file
21:30 tdavis ok thanks
21:31 rangi you have tested the connection from the command line on the server eh?
21:31 rangi with ldapsearch
21:32 tdavis i haven't but i definitely can...i was hoping that is what the logs would tell me
21:33 rangi yep worth testing to confirm its not firewall, or password etc
21:34 tdavis thanks, I really appreciate it
21:35 rangi no problem
21:35 rangi hope you get it going
21:37 tdavis me too, IT at my school hates me so this has been interesting
21:40 rangi ahh that won't make it easier
