11:45 druthb joined #koha
11:45 Oak heya druthb :)
11:45 druthb hi, Oak. :)
11:45 jcamins_away is now known as jcamins
11:45 jcamins Greetings, Oak and druthb.
11:45 druthb good morning, jcamins. :)
11:45 slef Oak: for...?
11:46 slef biab
11:46 Oak the last I configured Koha about a year ago. I tried installing it on this Slackware 13.37 today.... and I am doing something wrong with configuring Apache VirtualHost settings... I think
11:46 Oak this is httpd.conf:
11:46 jcamins Oak: use Debian.
11:47 jcamins Or Ubuntu.
11:47 Oak this is koha-httpd.conf:
11:47 Oak hmm
11:48 Oak I get a "Forbidden You don't have permission to access / on this server." for http://localhost:8080/
11:48 Oak okay, done. that's all the info. now I'll shut up
11:49 jcamins I don't know much about configuring Apache.
11:49 jcamins It just works for me on Debian. ;)
11:49 Oak okay :)
11:51 druthb Oak, it looks like you're not listening on an outside port..your Listen statements all point at  Probably should change them to *:80, *:8080.
11:52 Oak oh ok let me try that
11:52 druthb (It therefore wouldn't be listening on the ethernet card.)
11:54 Oak druthb, ok now I am not getting a '403 Forbidded'. Now I am getting: "Unable to connect"
11:54 Oak Firefox can't establish a connection to the server at localhost:8080.
11:54 jcamins Add Listen 8080 to ports.conf.
11:54 druthb jcamins++
11:55 * jcamins should have breakfast.
11:56 * druthb did, but that was a couple of hours ago now.
12:16 Oak oooh fixed it.
12:18 Oak \o/
12:22 Oak okay, this: PDF::API2::Simple  and  Graphics::Magick  are still missing
12:24 Oak Can't locate inc/Module/ in @INC (@INC contains: /usr/lib/perl5/site_perl/5.1​2.3/i486-linux-thread-multi /usr/lib/perl5/site_perl/5.12.3 /usr/lib/perl5/vendor_perl/5.​12.3/i486-linux-thread-multi /usr/lib/perl5/vendor_perl/5.12.3 /usr/lib/perl5/5.12.3/i486-linux-thread-multi /usr/lib/perl5/5.12.3 /usr/lib/perl5/site_perl /usr/lib/perl5/vendor_perl .) at Makefile.PL line 1.

12:25 Oak that's for PDF::API2::Simple
12:26 Oak other says: Warning: Cannot install Graphics::Magick , don't know what it is.
12:26 Oak Try the command
12:26 Oak i /Graphics::Magick /
12:26 Judit left #koha
12:34 Oak :(
12:39 Oak this bug:[…]lay.html?id=28125
12:45 Oak PDF::API2::Simple  installed \o/
12:46 druthb \o/
12:47 Oak now still Graphics::Magick is missing
12:47 Oak but Koha installer saying however 'All dependencies installed.' and is ready to proceed
12:48 jcamins Graphics::Magick is not required.
12:48 Oak aha
12:48 Oak ok then
12:50 Oak latest Koha installed \o/
12:51 Oak now I
12:52 Oak never mind
12:52 druthb lulz
12:52 Oak :)
12:53 Oak i should probably write a wiki entry on how to install Koha in Slackware 13.37
12:54 druthb Oak++
12:55 Oak yay ++
12:55 druthb @karma Oak
12:55 huginn druthb: Karma for "Oak" has been increased 7 times and decreased 0 times for a total karma of 7.

13:01 jcamins Our alarm just went off. Time to get up.

13:04 * jcamins wins "best person" award today.
13:04 * jcamins gave his cat yogurt.
13:05 druthb ooo...i bet the cat appreciates that.
13:05 jcamins Oh yes.
13:14 jcamins Myshkin just jumped up and tried to eat all my yogurt.
13:17 druthb well, you gave him some, so it must be *all* his.
13:17 druthb cat_logic++
13:38 slef Oak: sorry not to be around, but read the apache docs about how virtual hosts work. There are many possible working successful configurations.  And probably more non-working ones.
13:39 slef Oak: If you write up instructions, I'd link to the apache docs instead of giving a configuration that works for you, because it won't work for someone else who's doing some other stuff with their virtualhosts
13:39 Oak slef, no worries, thank you, I found that <Directory /> had a line 'Deny from all'
13:40 Oak i removed that line and it started working
13:40 slef Oak: ow! That's almost certainly a bad idea!
13:40 Oak oh?
13:40 slef Oak: better to add a later <Directory /path/to/your/koha> with an "allow from all"
13:41 Oak aaah
13:41 Oak and add Deny from all again? wait, let me try that,
13:41 slef otherwise some smartarse finds a way to create a link to / on the filesystem and everyone can browse your whole fs
13:42 slef About[…]Instances_of_Koha I keep meaning to ask why not use SetEnvIf instead of multiple VirtualHost sections that are 98% identical.
13:43 slef guess it depends if you want multiple instances of the same Koha or different ones
13:44 Oak slef,
13:44 slef Oak: let me go remind myself if it's allow from all or deny from none :)
13:44 Oak great, works works! thank you so much
13:45 Oak uh oh one extra 'works' there
13:45 slef np... and it's "allow from all"
13:46 Oak i noted instructions this time how I configured everything... I can send you those notes... and you can decide if they can be helpful for anyone installing Koha on Slackware
13:46 Oak or not
13:47 Oak this helped me:
13:51 Oak ... electricity will be out in few minutes

14:15 prawesh joined #koha
14:17 prawesh could someone help me??
14:20 cait joined #koha
14:21 jcamins prawesh: what's your question? No promises that we'll be able to help, but we certainly can't help if we don't know what your question is.
14:21 prawesh ok
14:22 prawesh i am using koha in ubuntu
14:22 prawesh due to couple of power down of the server, the database got corrupted
14:22 jcamins It is very unlikely I'll be able to help.
14:22 jcamins That's a very old version.
14:23 prawesh ok
14:23 prawesh so what should i do
14:23 jcamins I don't know.
14:23 jcamins I'd just restore from a backup.
14:24 prawesh i've n't completely finished telling my problem
14:24 jcamins Oh.
14:24 prawesh everythings fine expect for printing the barcode
14:24 prawesh its amazing that, for old items stored, the barcode gets printed in pdf
14:25 prawesh whereas for new items either saved in old records or fresh new records, are printed blank
14:25 prawesh and i am testing it with the barcode, test100, test101 and on
14:25 jcamins That's really weird.
14:26 prawesh i tried to reindexing the biblio
14:26 prawesh still no progress
14:26 prawesh i tried the mailing list...and well not responded by anyone
14:27 prawesh is it because of old version
14:27 prawesh ??
14:27 jcamins Probably.
14:27 jcamins We're up to 3.4.1 now.
14:27 jcamins Soon to be 3.4.2.
14:27 jcamins 3.0.5 came out years ago.
14:27 prawesh actually it was for our client
14:27 prawesh hey how hard is it to upgrade to new one
14:28 prawesh ??
14:28 jcamins I don't think it's very hard.
14:28 prawesh really
14:28 jcamins I never upgraded from 3.0.x, though.
14:28 jcamins Wait, yes I did.
14:28 jcamins It's easy.
14:28 prawesh really
14:28 prawesh everything intact
14:28 jcamins Just follow the instructions.
14:28 jcamins Yeah.
14:28 jcamins However, the client I upgraded didn't use anything other than cataloging and circulation.
14:29 jcamins No acquisitions or serials.
14:29 prawesh ok my client use circulation, acqusition, cataloging, patrons
14:30 jcamins You'll want to make a copy, and test it, first.
14:30 prawesh i am just worried about the biblio which has crossed 60,000 and patrons
14:31 jcamins Everything other than acquisitions definitely works, though, and I imagine acquisitions works, too.
14:31 jcamins 60k records on one biblio?
14:31 jcamins s/records/items
14:31 prawesh sorry records
14:31 jcamins Oh, what's the problem with 60k records?
14:31 prawesh no problem, i am just worried if they get lost while upgrading to new version
14:32 jcamins Oh.
14:32 jcamins I doubt it.
14:32 prawesh you doubt that it will get lost or it won't get lost
14:34 jcamins I doubt that it would get lost.
14:34 prawesh oh
14:34 jcamins I mean, try it on another system, first, but I don't anticipate any problems.
14:34 prawesh ok
14:35 prawesh i guess i don't have any other option better than upgrading after testing
14:37 prawesh thank u for ur help
14:37 jcamins You're welcome.
14:37 jcamins Good luck.
14:38 prawesh thank u

16:04 slef has anyone got a particularly clever way of deduplicating/uncolliding barcodes when libraries merge?
16:05 slef and, bizarrely, it looks like some of these barcode collisions are from the same library, which I didn't think the previous LMS allowed either.

23:32 eythian Judit: that's pretty strange. Have you triple-checked your rules?

23:38 rangi cos its got from last year, but if you plot that all, you cant see a thing ;)
23:38 Brooke it would really be cool for the future
23:38 Brooke if there were a way to track devs in there
23:38 Brooke cause y'all are terribly competitve
23:38 rangi its all in bugzilla
23:39 rangi you want a graph by username?

23:41 cait_m rangi: great chart :)
23:41 Brooke morena Bobo!
23:41 Judit so any circulation rules expert around
23:42 * Brooke kept her rules logical, so prolly not.
23:42 cait_m Judit: I don't see a reason koha would do that - if your rules are not set up to do so - have you checked that the rules apply to the library you are logged in at?
23:42 Judit my rules are simple, but not working
23:42 Judit yes, i have set the library first
23:43 BobB Hey Brooke, are you going to KohaCon?
23:44 Brooke try and stop me, mate./
23:44 BobB Cool !  Irma and I are planning to go too.
23:44 Brooke oooooh
23:44 Brooke wunderbar :D
23:45 BobB Just to Mumbai/Thane, and maybe a side trip to Pune.
23:45 Brooke neat
23:46 BobB we kinda think its close by, yet we have to travel overnight and it costs almost as much as going to Europe.  Then double it!
23:46 Brooke ooof
23:46 BobB But it'll be a really exciting place to visit, eh
23:46 Brooke make sure ye talk to jransom
23:47 Brooke she got summat not so bad through Singapore methinks
23:47 BobB I have to offer KMK a paper, but I'm not sure what.  Irma has an idea but I'm struggling a bit.  :(
23:48 BobB So JRansom is going... Awesome
23:48 eythian hmm, I need to try to write something for it too
23:48 * rangi pushes some patches to make the graph change
23:48 BobB Is Nicole going, do we know?
23:49 druthb Nicole is not going.
23:49 BobB ethyian, I think deadline is upon us?
23:49 BobB Hi Ruth, OK, so maybe I could offer a paper on community stuff.  Nicole is prolly better at that, but if she can't make it ...
23:50 eythian it's close, yes. I'm planning on turning one of the workshop segments into a talk.
23:50 rangi jo and i are doing a collaboration
23:50 eythian I think the deadline is next month, right?
23:50 BobB eythian even
23:50 rangi BobB: its touching on the community stuff, so you might want to check with her
23:50 druthb Hi, Bob! :)
23:53 BobB rangi: gotcha, will do.
23:54 rangi oh look, the graph just changed :)
