00:00 * Brooke nods.
00:00 rangi actually most of that is us dumping the records
00:00 rangi that takes way more time than the actual index
00:00 libsysguy haha
00:00 Brooke left #koha
00:01 rangi its writing them all out to a file to be indexed, i think is about 80% of the time
00:01 libsysguy oh is that what the biblio dump is doing
00:01 libsysguy gotcha
00:02 libsysguy then when the zebraidx bit kicks in that the actual index
00:02 rangi yep
00:02 eythian I wonder if there's some magic we could do to make that faster, e.g. use two threads, one dumping, one indexing.
00:03 tcohen rangi, I played with a 1.5M registers database and zebra was a bit slow :-P
00:03 rangi ive never had zebra be slow
00:03 rangi even with a 15 mill load
00:03 libsysguy wow
00:03 tcohen i meant the indexing
00:03 libsysguy that is a huge load
00:03 rangi yep, that too
00:03 rangi dumping the files takes way way way longer than it
00:03 tcohen marcxml?
00:03 wahanui well, marcxml is a representation of the usmarc in xml
00:04 rangi it took about 1 hour for the zebraidx to run
00:04 rangi mind you, it was on a grunty box
00:05 chrisdothall afternoon koha :)
00:05 rangi eythian: yeah, i think for an incremental we could, the full rebuild tho, it cant start indexing until everything is dumped
00:05 rangi i wonder if we could have a few threads dumping
00:06 rangi i wonder if its I/O bound, or the xml parsing thats slow when writing
00:06 rangi i know when zebraidix is running, its IO
00:06 rangi so fast disk helps a lot
00:06 eythian well, it could do one batch of 1000, merge that in, while that's happening, dump the next 1,000, etc.
00:07 libsysguy mmm SAN
00:07 eythian assuming a full index will let us merge like that
00:07 rangi it should
00:07 eythian and it won't slow the whole process down
00:07 rangi just the first batch would do the reset
00:07 eythian ah yeah
00:07 libsysguy are you guys running Koha off a VM or an actual server?
00:07 rangi so you'd get partial results
00:07 eythian both, but mostly vms.
00:07 eythian well, I mean merge into a temp area
00:08 eythian like it does when it's doing it normally, and then copies it over (or whatever it is)
00:08 rangi yep it doest that with the shadow
00:08 rangi but it still has resets the whole thing first
00:08 rangi or maybe it doesnt
00:08 rangi i cant remember
00:08 tcohen maybe a full reindex in a new dir?
00:08 eythian yeah, that's what I'm thinking
00:09 eythian but I'd have to understand more about how it works than I do
00:09 tcohen you should stop any zebraqueue daemon/cronjob I think
00:09 eythian yeah, I've been meaning to put some locking into the package implementations, as doing a rebuild after an import kills any performance
00:10 eythian (when you have cron jobs spinning up too)
00:10 libsysguy ^^
00:10 tcohen zebraqueue cronjob will try to update the indexes
00:10 libsysguy learned my lesson the hard way on that one
00:10 tcohen as you do a dump then reindex, you'd like to have all those
00:11 tcohen new zebraqueue table rows marked done=0
00:12 Irma joined #koha
00:12 eythian yeah, I've forgotten to turn that off sometimes, came back and it was crawling and had 5 zebra things running at once.
00:13 tcohen the path zebraidx -c /etc/koha/koha-conf.xml will use for the databases
00:13 libsysguy kill -9 kill -9
00:13 tcohen is defined in /etc/koha/zebradb/zebra-*.cfg
00:13 eythian <-- libsysguy
00:13 tcohen you might have a copy of the config files with another paths defined
00:14 libsysguy omg yes i;ve see that
00:14 libsysguy and its awesome
00:14 eythian I think locking would be better, there's no point having two running at the same time anyway
00:16 rangi I used to respect this guy till I found out he uses emacs. Everyone knows vim is for the true OGs.
00:16 tcohen I thought clearing the indexes before indexing was a problem
00:16 * libsysguy uses emacs...what are you getting at rangi...
00:16 rangi actually i do too
00:16 rangi just thought it was a good comment ;)
00:16 libsysguy that is basically a holy war
00:17 eythian no, it's that you have a database full of done=0, and a bunch of processes decide it's their job to fix it.
00:17 eythian $ ps ax|grep [v]im
00:17 eythian 8979 pts/0    Sl+   24:31 vim

00:17 eythian 28646 pts/11   Sl+    0:34 vim en/modules/members/ en-NZ/modules/members/
00:17 eythian ^-- that's how you do it :)
00:17 eythian and wow, that first vim process has had a lot of use.
00:18 rangi heh
00:18 tcohen monfils rocks right now
00:18 libsysguy ok so riddle me webserver is up and serving...but i cant get to the outside world
00:19 rangi[…]does-180-internet
00:19 eythian you can't get to the outside world from the server?
00:19 tcohen netstat -atnp | grep apachee
00:19 libsysguy yeah...something is weird
00:20 eythian depends how it's set up, either a firewall, or it doesn't have a bridge or NAT interface to let it get beyond itself
00:20 libsysguy listening on 80 and 8080
00:20 eythian often in virtualbox I have two network interfaces, one is a virtual LAN on the host machine and one is NAT to let it connect externally.
00:20 libsysguy can you guys see
00:20 eythian But you'd want a bridge if you want it to be reachable from outside most likely
00:21 tcohen yes
00:21 eythian yep
00:21 libsysguy and it looks...not broken lol
00:21 eythian ironically, the accessibility link is a javascript link that doesn't work
00:21 libsysguy well i guess you know how i feel about that
00:23 tcohen eythian, what I recommended was an option for reindexing while still serving some searches
00:23 tcohen got to leave, good night!
00:23 tcohen left #koha
00:24 eythian > By 1775, killings were so unremarkable at cricket matches that one William Waterfall was given a lighter sentence for cricket-related manslaughter than sheep thieves and bigamists convicted during the same week.
00:25 libsysguy yes
00:25 libsysguy oops
00:25 libsysguy wrong window
00:25 eythian .com
00:29 libsysguy ok so when i try and pull the 5549 branch i get this error: fatal: git checkout: updating paths is incompatible with switching branches.
00:29 libsysguy i didn't get that last time i checked it out
00:29 rangi you dont have some uncommitted changes lying around?
00:30 libsysguy nope just pulled from master
00:30 libsysguy wait...i did move over my prog directory
00:30 rangi that;d do it
00:30 libsysguy boo
00:30 libsysguy can i just stash?
00:30 eythian yeah
00:30 rangi yup
00:30 libsysguy hmm it said there was nothing to save
00:34 libsysguy but it let me checkout master again in a new branch
00:34 aogle left #koha
00:59 libsysguy could somebody lend me a hand and see if they can checkout the bug 5549 branch?
00:59 huginn Bug[…]w_bug.cgi?id=5549 enhancement, PATCH-Sent, ---, ian.walls, ASSIGNED , Hourly Loans
00:59 libsysguy it shows up when i do git remote show origin
00:59 libsysguy but won't let me check it out
01:13 rangi whats it say?
01:13 libsysguy fatal: git checkout: updating paths is incompatible with switching branches.
01:13 wahanui i already had it that way, libsysguy.
01:13 libsysguy Did you intend to checkout 'new/awaiting_qa/bug_5549' which can not be resolved as commit?
01:14 rangi right try
01:14 rangi origin/new/awaiting_qa/bug_5549
01:14 rangi id do something like this
01:14 rangi git checkout -b my_5549  origin/new/awaiting_qa/bug_5549
01:14 libsysguy that whole time
01:15 libsysguy all i needed was the word origin
01:15 rangi heh
01:15 libsysguy rangi++
01:24 libsysguy rangi, for hourly loans i installed the  libdatetime-set-perl package but im still getting an error saying it can't find
01:24 libsysguy is there something im forgetting
01:27 rangi yeah i think you need 2
01:28 libsysguy is it this one libreadonly-perl
01:28 rangi DateTime::Format::DateParse
01:28 rangi libdatetime-format-dateparse-perl
01:28 rangi probably
01:28 rangi DateTime::Set (libdatetime-set-perl)
01:28 rangi theres a pattern in how debian names them
01:29 libsysguy yeah that was it...ill add that to the ticket
01:29 rangi cool thanks
01:34 rangi[…]+Wake+Up/57239977  <-- for tomorrow

03:17 Barb joined #koha
03:17 rangi hiya Barb :)
03:18 * rangi is chris, who has been emailing with you
03:20 Barb Hi, nice to meet you here! Could you get some other ideas....from your community?
03:21 rangi yes, kristina had a few ideas, where do your interests lie?
03:23 rangi im just asking her if she can hop online too
03:23 anitsirk joined #koha
03:23 rangi there she is ;)
03:23 rangi anitsirk: i forgot the good idea you had for Barb
03:23 anitsirk :-) hello
03:24 anitsirk ah right.
03:24 Barb Hi, nice to meet you kristina!
03:24 anitsirk hi barb. :-)
03:24 anitsirk alright: range forwarded us in the office your email. fantastic that you want to do something with koha.
03:25 anitsirk do you plan to continue with the work you start in your master's thesis?
03:27 Barb I would like to publish the project report as an article..
03:29 anitsirk Ok. i was thinking then instead of us giving you a task that may not suit your interests, why don't you pick a topic?
03:29 anitsirk from your email we cannot easily judge what your areas of interest in info management are. thus we could suggest topics to you that may make you run away ;-)
03:29 anitsirk and of course, we don't want that.
03:31 anitsirk so, could you tell us a little bit more what you are interested in, what you maybe also want to specialize in in your master's, whether you'd be interested in looking at code and enhancing features or whether you would prefer to work on the front end investigating usability, researching workflows and making improvement suggestions etc.
03:31 Barb I am interested in doing some evaluation of usuage of open resources in Germany. I am also intersted in record management and information literacy...
03:32 anitsirk so very much around the use of the software?
03:33 Barb I am library focused...
03:33 anitsirk for information literacy, i can't think of a good intersection with koha as you would be looking at the users and how they deal with information / technology etc.
03:33 anitsirk record management sounds more like that it can be koha-focused
03:34 anitsirk have you already worked with koha or seen it live?
03:34 rangi katrin from germany who works on koha there, will be on later, when she wakes up
03:34 anitsirk and: what do you mean by record management?
03:35 rangi she might have some ideas too
03:36 rangi she is a librarian too (and a developer)
03:37 anitsirk katrin will be a good bet as she knows the german library landscape. :-) i only remember what i saw as a user
03:44 Barb Basically, I am interested in front service, means usuage of the koha application. I had a look at the demoversion, but not the real version. I think it would be good to know about libraries that use koha. I also red that the application of koha in Germany is limited, are you interested in such evaluation about the reasons? I did a brief literature review of the last 2 years and there are some publication about koha or where koha had been compared
03:47 rangi yeah there are a quite a lot now
03:47 rangi but all behind pay wall
03:47 rangi s
03:47 rangi i think talk to katrin, because she was sayng a german student was just finishing such a report
03:48 rangi so, id hate you to double up
03:48 rangi Barb: i will check with katrin that its ok, and then send you her email address
03:48 rangi others will probably read the log of this chat, and come up with good ideas too
03:54 Barb OK.
03:58 Barb Could I get access to the application that you were talking about in your email, that needs to get checked?
03:58 rangi
03:59 rangi is a good place to start
03:59 rangi it gives you access to both the opac, and the staff client
04:01 Barb ok, thanks
04:02 rangi also, if you wanted to you could mail the koha mailing lists, and introduce yourself
04:03 rangi[…]ha-mailing-lists/
04:09 anitsirk sorry for not having stayed on. i needed to attend to something else.
04:10 Barb Ok, I will send an email, perhaps somebody has got an idea....
04:14 rangi yep thats a good idea
04:14 rangi there are a few thousand librarians on the list
04:14 rangi one of them is bound to have a good idea ;)
04:19 anitsirk yes, i'm sure they will. if you are more interested in how libraries use it, i suspect that the librarians reading the list will come up with some great ideas which you can ponder and mesh with your own to come up with a good research project, Barb.
04:23 Barb ok, thanks
04:24 Barb Thank you for your time and a nice chat, hope see you soon... Have a nice weekend! (have to go to lecture)
04:25 Barb left #koha
04:28 anitsirk have a great weekend as well.

12:26 druthb MUMPS was a heckuva database engine, for its' time.  But its' time was a looooong time ago.

12:28 danmc Massachusetts General Hospital Utility Multi-Programming System
12:28 druthb silly magnuse!
12:29 magnuse then koha could spread like a virus...
12:29 magnuse see, it has something to do with hospitals
12:29 druthb It's a sloppy language--no declarations, one datatype that is implicitly typed according to context...
12:29 libsysguy joined #koha
12:29 druthb Good morning, libsysguy.  :)
12:30 magnuse hiya libsysguy
12:30 libsysguy well it is morning druthb
12:30 libsysguy but not so good
12:30 * druthb offers hugs and cookies
12:30 libsysguy I am waging war with zebra and daemon
12:30 libsysguy aww thanks druthb
12:31 * libsysguy accepts hugs and cookies
12:32 libsysguy do you guys have zebra added to your daemon?
12:32 druthb i just use start to crank up zebra, and a cron job to process the zebraqueue.  Have never used the zebraqueue daemon.
12:34 libsysguy i just put it in there so if the server goes down and comes back up searching is working
12:34 slef hi all
12:34 libsysguy hey slef
12:35 druthb That can be done with, too.  make sure the user and group are right at the top of the file, and then ln -s to it from /etc/init.d, and add it to your boot sequence.  Works a treat.
12:36 slef The daemon is currently deprecated. I think someone is working on bringing it back, because we need it for more synchronous index updates.  It's on my to-look-at list.
12:36 slef As in the zebraqueuedaemon.  The daemon program used to launch zebrasrv is clearly not.
12:37 slef I've usually got koha-zebra-ctl or something based on it that starts up daemon to run zebrasrv in init.d, but you can also add it to cron @reboot or launchd if you prefer them.
12:38 druthb wahanui: botsnack small screaming child from the campsite next door
12:38 wahanui :)
12:38 libsysguy yeah that is what i was trying to do self
12:38 * slef looks at druthb oddly
12:39 * druthb is living deliberately as a nomad, slef.
12:39 slef libsysguy: man update-rc.d # or is something going wrong?
12:39 slef druthb: heh, unlike me who is without an office this week because of repair works.
12:39 tcohen joined #koha
12:40 slef yay tcohen hi! Sorry I wasn't around yesterday
12:40 tcohen hi slef
12:41 tcohen no problem
12:41 druthb slef:  for the most part, we love it.  but this toddler needs to be disciplined, seriously, before someone meaner than me--and who is a later sleeper than me--decides to drown him in the pool.
12:42 slef druthb: duct tape is versatile.
12:42 druthb indeed.  and I have a small roll in the tool
12:43 slef tcohen: in your last comment, do you mean "promising" more than "interesting"?
12:43 danmc druthb:  neato.  moving every day or just once in a while?
12:43 tcohen slef: indeed
12:43 tcohen yes
12:43 druthb once in a while.  Our current spot--we'll be here a total of 19 days, then move...  next stop is Indianapolis, then Sioux Falls, a week at each.
12:44 libsysguy i think something is wrong slef
12:45 slef libsysguy: why do you think that?
12:45 libsysguy i have this error: |update-rc.d: error: unable to read /etc/init.d/koha-zebra-daemon
12:45 slef libsysguy: ok, and ls -l /etc/init.d/koha-zebra-daemon says?
12:45 libsysguy ilrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 28 Aug 12 02:26 /etc/init.d/koha-zebra-daemon -> ./misc/bin/
12:46 libsysguy minus the i
12:46 libsysguy that is a typo
12:46 slef ok, and what's in /etc/init.d/misc/bin/ ?
12:46 libsysguy you mean ~/kohaclone/misc/bin/
12:47 libsysguy -rwxr-xr-x 1 koha koha 2874 Aug 11 10:10 misc/bin/
12:47 slef libsysguy: no, I mean what I typed because that's where your symlink is pointing.
12:47 libsysguy 0_0
12:47 slef libsysguy: if it doesn't exist, you got your ln -s command wrong.
12:48 slef which is probably what's wrong ;-)
12:48 slef libsysguy: be careful with relative paths in ln -s. They dereference from the symlink location, not your current one.
12:49 libsysguy gotcha
12:49 libsysguy cursed lazy symlinking
12:50 slef cat /etc/init.d/koha-zebra-daemon # in your original situation would probably complain
12:50 slef update-rc.d's error is correct but unhelpful
12:50 libsysguy exactly
12:51 libsysguy that got it
12:51 libsysguy thanks slef
12:51 libsysguy ill remember not to lazy link
12:51 slef libsysguy: oh it can be useful, as long as you know what's happening
12:51 libsysguy yeah true
12:51 slef like symlinking a README to ../README and still working when you mv a tree
12:51 libsysguy now back to my origional problem...fixing searching :-\
12:52 slef tcohen: use vars is obsolete (see man perlmodlib), but I know you didn't introduce that.
12:57 slef tcohen: and you need environment variables to avoid the catch22 of having to parse the config file to find what memcached the config settings are stored in, right?
12:57 tcohen exactly
12:57 slef tcohen: a clearer comment than "memcached stuff" in line 82 would be good, but I can't see anything wrong with your approach.
12:58 slef this is bug 6193 for those playing along at home
12:58 huginn Bug[…]w_bug.cgi?id=6193 enhancement, PATCH-Sent, ---, tomascohen, ASSIGNED , Use memcached cache koha-conf.xml configuration variables
12:58 slef why shouldn't this go in master yet?
13:00 tcohen i think it can go into master, I ust wanted more people to test it
13:02 kf wahanui botsnack raspberry icecream
13:02 wahanui :)
13:02 slef tcohen: ok... I'll apply it to my development server now.
13:03 tcohen :-D
13:04 libsysguy ok so i think i am forgetting something in my is in the daemon
13:04 slef urgh, but first I just got this update from origin/master
13:04 slef mode change 100644 => 100755 etc/koha-httpd.conf
13:04 libsysguy and searching aren't i started zebrazrv by hand
13:05 libsysguy and searching works
13:05 slef why does etc/koha-httpd.conf need to be +x?
13:06 slef change introduced by bug 6277
13:06 wahanui slef: that doesn't look right
13:06 huginn Bug[…]w_bug.cgi?id=6277 enhancement, PATCH-Sent, ---, paul.poulain, NEW , CustomLog by default
13:06 wahanui left #koha
13:06 wahanui joined #koha
13:06 slef hehe
13:08 slef ok, have queried it on that bug :(
13:10 slef whee and that makes tcohen's patch generate a warning :(
13:10 moodaepo left #koha
13:10 slef still seems to have applied, happily
13:12 slef doing a make install because the koha-httpd.conf has changed
13:12 slef actually we could skip a lot of that if it's a dev install
13:12 slef another thing to do one day
13:13 slef oooh that failed messily :-/
13:13 slef so sorry tcohen but I can't test this today :-/
13:13 tcohen found a problem on the patch?
13:14 slef oh no, I'm an idiot.
13:14 slef Redoing.
13:14 slef I missed a "../" off my Makefile.PL command.
13:15 kf slef: it's friday...
13:16 slef it's lunchtime... I'll finish testing this afterwards. :)
13:16 libsysguy ok so my zebra server and zebradaemon are both in the daemon but i've got no search results
13:16 slef zebradaemon?
13:17 libsysguy zebraqueue**
13:17 libsysguy sorry
13:17 libsysguy its been a long day already
13:17 slef zebraqueuedaemon?
13:17 libsysguy
13:17 slef Does that work again now? I thought we still needed to use -z
13:17 slef from cron
13:17 libsysguy well i built it last night
13:18 slef and have you run -r -a -b to initialise the index?
13:18 slef I really should reread the INSTALL :)
13:18 libsysguy ohh
13:18 libsysguy ok...well ill do that and see if it back in like 5 hours
13:18 libsysguy :-\
13:19 kf I think there are 2 different demans
13:19 slef oh yeah, it's mentioned in there, "What's Next" steps 3 and 4
13:19 kf koha-zebraqueue... something is deprecrated
13:19 kf and ignore all the typos
13:21 kf and ln -s /home/katrin/koha-dev/bin/ /etc/init.d/koha-zebra-daemon  will start zebrasrv
13:21 kf hm not that line... but the koha-zebra-daemon
13:21 tcohen koha-zebraqueue usage was discouraged, in favor of a cronjob
13:21 * kf goes to hide from friday
13:21 kf tcohen: yes - I was talking about starting zebrasrv
13:22 kf or trying to talk about it but not making much sense
13:22 tcohen kf: friday, we're all in love
13:22 tcohen there's no cure for that

13:58 kf hm no
13:58 kf did you add your bugzilla logins?
13:58 kf what is your error message?
13:58 libsysguy ^^
13:59 wizzyrea you probably need to define your path in your .profile
13:59 wizzyrea dunno where you put it in your path
13:59 wizzyrea but you would edit .profile and add something like
13:59 wizzyrea if [ -d "$HOME/bin" ] ; then
13:59 wizzyrea PATH="/usr/sbin:$HOME/bin:$PATH"
13:59 wizzyrea fi
13:59 wizzyrea you'd need to put your gitbz path in ther
13:59 wizzyrea there*
14:00 wizzyrea oh wait
14:00 wizzyrea my bad
14:00 wizzyrea sec
14:00 wizzyrea in .bash_profile

14:13 kf hm
14:13 druthb1 joined #koha
14:13 kf it still works for me and I don't remember putting it in there
14:13 kf might have to check again
14:13 wizzyrea it's because you probably had that path already configured
14:13 wizzyrea or you symlinked to a path you had in there
14:14 kf ok
14:15 wizzyrea kf:
14:15 wizzyrea in my case, on an unedited .bash_profile, I didn't have /usr/local/bin, so the instructions on the wiki would have caused the exact problem nengard was seeing.

14:21 wizzyrea a default squeeze install, apparently
14:22 slef buh, really?
14:22 * slef checks one
14:22 libsysguy i did...i thought
14:22 wizzyrea it could be a leftover from lenny
14:22 wizzyrea but it wasn't in mine
14:22 libsysguy no it was a clean net install
14:22 libsysguy but maybe i added it...
14:23 slef no I just checked one of our recent squeezes and it has /usr/local/bin
14:23 wizzyrea must be a lenny leftover, as it was an upgraded bo
14:23 wizzyrea box
14:23 wizzyrea but I know I didn't remove it
14:23 wizzyrea and I had to add it
14:23 wizzyrea (because, why would you remove it?)
14:23 slef our lenny systems have it too
14:23 wizzyrea (that would be dumb)
14:23 * libsysguy breathes a sigh of relief knowing he's not crazy
14:23 wizzyrea I don't have an explanation
14:23 wizzyrea but it wasn't in mine
14:24 wizzyrea and it wasn't in nengard's
14:24 slef strange
14:24 slef very strange
14:24 libsysguy when I can't explain something i just blame quantum entanglement

14:55 davemenninger pardon if this is bad form ;) but does anyone in here know if there are any IRC channels where people talk sirsidynix?
14:56 oleonard Wouldn't you rather stay here and be converted? :)

14:57 libsysguy we just moved from Sirsi
14:57 slef libsysguy: C4::Members::GetBorrowersWhoHav​eNotBorrowedSince('2099-01-01') perhaps? </evil>
14:57 libsysguy heh slef you got me
14:57 libsysguy but now i really want to add a stub for that
14:57 slef a stub?
14:58 libsysguy
14:58 slef libsysguy: there's probably a nicer way to do it with C4::Members::Search or SearchMember
14:59 libsysguy yeah I was going to use GetMember but i didn't really know what to pass it to get all of the members
14:59 wizzyrea davemenninger: a cursory search doesn't bring back much that's collaborative about sirsidynix with respect to IRC
15:00 libsysguy and I'd rather use the built in functions rather than just writing my own sql
15:00 slef libsysguy: roflmao. I think C4::Members::SearchMember('%') may work but that's probably unintentional.
15:00 libsysguy hahaha
15:00 slef but let's face it, if you've got API access, you can break it 1001 ways, so does it matter?
15:00 oleonard davemenninger: There's not a rival IRC gang that comes here once in a while to rumble, if that's what you thought
15:01 davemenninger haha, thanks
15:01 slef wizzyrea: ooh, let me try the IRC search site
15:01 libsysguy oleonard: that would be awesome
15:01 davemenninger yeah - i'm newly in the role of server admin at my library
15:01 slef heh, was that you davemenninger?
15:02 libsysguy davemenninger: SO AM I!!!
15:02 wizzyrea you might as in code4lib
15:02 wizzyrea s/as/ask
15:02 libsysguy davemenninger: what is your library?
15:03 davemenninger hmm, is #code4lib on freenode?
15:03 davemenninger yep, i'm the only person in oftc/#code4lib and oftc/#sirsi
15:04 davemenninger i'm at the cincinnati public library
15:04 rhcl sirsi used to have an online "something" -- a forum or chat or ??? that was fairly participative for the users, but Sirsi, bless 'em, discontinued it after they were bought out by Microsoft
15:04 wizzyrea yea, code4lib is on freenode
15:04 davemenninger no wonder... :)

15:05 davemenninger i'm considering using koha though for a side project
15:05 davemenninger is there still an EC2 image for it?
15:06 slef no idea but I suspect so. The wiki would know
15:06 libsysguy hmm might be difficult to run on EC2 since they have their own db implementation separate from mysql
15:07 libsysguy you'd have to have EBS set up
15:07 libsysguy i think
15:07 davemenninger boo
15:07 wizzyrea nah, you can run mysql in an instance
15:07 libsysguy well...i just have the free developer version of ec2
15:07 wizzyrea you don't have to use their db solution
15:08 libsysguy I wish my library would buy the good stuff :p
15:08 wizzyrea you could do it without EBS too
15:08 wizzyrea though it's quite a bit more volatile (I wouldn't do anything important without EBS)

16:54 nengard under $100
16:54 nengard doesn't have to be wireless - but wireless is nice :(
16:54 nengard I mean :)
16:56 wizzyrea hm anybody noticed that fines are not caluclating?
16:56 wizzyrea correctly
16:56 wizzyrea as example
16:56 libsysguy like how
16:56 wizzyrea Stopped by Thursday evening to check out books.   He had an existing fine of $11.00 on his account.   He was informed by the Circulation Clerk that he could go ahead and check out books if the fine was not over $10.00.
16:56 wizzyrea
16:56 wizzyrea Jeffery gave the clerk $1.00.   When the clerk applied the money to the account,  the entire balance was deleted leaving his balance at $ 0.00
16:57 libsysguy and you were using partial payments?
16:57 libsysguy bug 3498

16:58 wizzyrea idk
16:58 wizzyrea that's the report I got we're looking for more now
16:58 libsysguy ok well i think if you click pay fine then it pays the whole fine
16:58 libsysguy nengard can back me up
16:58 nengard it should yes
16:58 nengard if you click pay it pays the whole fine
16:58 nengard this is how it is in koha master right now

17:04 sekjal there are several Partial Payments implementations out there
17:05 sekjal the problem is that most of them don't fix the underlying structural problems with the accounts table
17:05 wizzyrea if it's not in mainline koha, we don't have it
17:05 wizzyrea just sayin
17:09 oleonard sekjal: Bug 3498 is a fairly old implementation that colin updated. It just popped up because I added 'needs signoff'

20:34 huginn New commit(s) needsignoff: [Bug 6716] Database Documentation <[…]w_bug.cgi?id=6716>
20:36 nengard i found three fields in the borrowers table that we don't use anymore ... or that i can't figure out how we use
20:37 libsysguy if i had a test instance i'd help :'(
20:38 sekjal nengard:  which 3?
20:39 nengard ethnicity, ethnotes, flags
20:39 sekjal flags is used
20:39 nengard how?
20:39 sekjal user permissions
20:39 nengard oh!!!
20:39 nengard thanks
20:39 nengard will put that in
20:39 sekjal its a really weird usage, though
20:40 sekjal it's an integer, but the different permission values are bit-wise ANDed together
20:40 sekjal so, superlibrarian is 1
20:40 nengard how do i mark an attachment as obsolete without attaching something else?
20:41 sekjal view all -> details -> edit details, then check obsolete
20:44 nengard thanks
20:44 nengard did it using git bz
20:44 nengard new patch submitted
20:44 nengard sekjal is there a way to see what each permission code is?
20:44 nengard oh .. but you said it was really wierd so it's not easy to figure out by reading that field?
20:45 sekjal nengard:  select * from user_permissions;
20:45 cait nengard: git bz attach -e
20:45 nengard cait that's how i did it
20:45 cait brings up an editor, uncomment the lines of the attachements you want... ok
20:45 cait :)
20:46 sekjal err, wait, no
20:46 nengard hehe
20:46 nengard was just reading that and was confused
20:48 cait I never figured out how it worked - the flags thing
20:48 cait perhaps sekjal can explain
20:48 sekjal select * from userflags
20:48 nengard hmm, that's not all of them
20:49 nengard so i have a patron with a 214 in that field
20:49 sekjal the 'bit' column is which bit of the binary value of borrowers.flags
20:49 nengard does that mean they can catalogue, circulate, and borrowers
20:50 cait hm
20:50 sekjal should mean they can circulate, catalogue, borrowers, reserveforothers, borrow
20:50 sekjal since 214 = 11010110 in binary
20:51 nengard oh my goodness
20:51 sekjal and bits 1, 2, 4, 6, and 7 are set
20:51 nengard i have no idea how to write a report to figure those things out
20:51 sekjal nengard:  spot check me against that patron?
20:51 nengard so i hope no one asks me
20:52 sekjal nengard:  I can give you that report
20:52 nengard checking permissions
20:52 nengard she has circulate (all), catalogue, borrowers, reserveforothers(all), borrow,items_batchmod
20:52 nengard so you're missing one
20:53 sekjal nengard:  ah, right, any subpermissions will be stored in a different table
20:53 sekjal user_permissions
20:53 nengard oh my goodness!!!!
20:53 nengard hehe
20:53 nengard can you see my head exploding??
20:53 * wizzyrea can
20:54 nengard i'm skipping those tables - sekjal can document them :)
20:54 cait hehe
20:54 nengard cait (since you helped me before) does the patch on 6716 look like what we decided for documentation of the mysql?
20:54 druthb left #koha
20:54 cait I checked it right now - it does :)
20:54 nengard good stuff
20:55 nengard gonna keep going then
20:55 cait have you checked that you can load the table into an empty database
20:55 cait ?
20:56 cait to rule out that small typos creep in and the syntax works as it's supposed to
20:56 sekjal to see if a borrower has a certain permission: select borrowernumber, flags from borrowers where flags & <<flag bit>>, where <<flag bit>> is the desired value from userflags;
20:59 cait *sighs*
20:59 cait I forgot my mysql root password
20:59 cait again
21:01 cait hah, found it
21:08 nengard cait you're testing to see if you can add the table?
21:08 libsysguy cait was it taped under the keyboard
21:08 cait no it wasn't
21:08 cait and nengard - yes, trying to :)
21:09 nengard fingers crossed
21:09 cait hmmm
21:10 cait can you paste me the new thing from your kohastructure?
21:10 cait wihtout the - and + and all that?
21:11 nengard yes
21:11 cait nengard: look here - it seems we are missing a space after the 2 dashes perhaps
21:11 cait[…]/en/comments.html
21:11 cait From a “-- ” sequence to           the end of the line. In MySQL, the           “-- ” (double-dash)           comment style requires the second dash to be followed by at           least one whitespace or control character (such as a space,           tab, newline, and so on). This syntax differs slightly from           standard SQL comment syntax, as discussed in           Section, “'--' as the Start of a Comment”.
