12:55 Culiforge shouldn't I have a php.ini file somewhere?
12:57 jcamins_away Culiforge: not for Koha.
12:58 jcamins_away Koha is written in Perl.
12:58 Culiforge ok, why would my localhost access be so painfully slow. (i'm running koha on localhost atm)
12:59 jcamins_away Culiforge: too much other stuff running?
13:00 Culiforge I don't think so.. 10.04 ubuntu-desktop and what's needed to run koha along with firefox on a 3.2GHz intel proc
13:00 jcamins_away How much RAM?
13:01 Culiforge ~blush~ 512
13:01 Culiforge should have 2G by midweek though (not that it helps now)
13:01 jcamins_away That's why.
13:02 jcamins_away FF will merrily eat up the entire 512.
13:02 Culiforge but all my regular web browsing is quite snappy
13:02 jcamins_away That's because FF isn't getting swapped out.
13:02 jcamins_away Just Koha.
13:04 Culiforge speaking of swap. I was just over on #ubuntu and was told that ubuntu really doesnt' like to use swap file.. as I watch my memory spike merrily while my swap sits at 12% like a lump
13:04 jcamins_away Yeah, that's correct.
13:05 jcamins_away However, it will swap eventually.
13:05 Culiforge just not much eh?
13:06 jcamins_away It will try not to, but FF is a RAM hog.
13:07 Culiforge some suggest chrome.. might there be anything else lightweight that I might use specifically for koha work?
13:07 jcamins_away I just opened up FF on my Mac and it is using over 200MB of RAM.
13:07 Culiforge at startup?
13:07 jcamins_away I'm not using FF. I just *opened* it.
13:08 jcamins_away Yup.
13:08 Culiforge man.. that's just wron
13:08 Culiforge wrong
13:08 jcamins_away You'll see huge improvements when you put in 2GB.
13:10 Culiforge yeah, I noticed that on my wife's laptop... I ordered 2G and they sent it to me.. but they sent me sodimm.. luckily it fits nicely in the laptop so the $14 i spent on it isn't all lost
13:10 Culiforge it would have cost me that just to send it back
13:12 Culiforge does the Z39.5 lookup have issues with 13 digit isbn's or is that more of an "on the other end" problem?
13:12 jcamins_away It's probably a problem on the other end.
13:13 jcamins_away LC's Z39.50 server has issues with ISBN.
13:13 jcamins_away Or, rather, with the way Koha queries for ISBN.
13:13 Culiforge I see
13:14 Culiforge is there a way to adjust how it searches.. ie. matching any instead of all search fields.. boolean if you will?
13:15 jcamins_away Not easily.
13:15 jcamins_away You'd have to hack the code a bit.
13:15 jcamins_away Well, a lot.
13:16 mbalmer left #koha
13:16 Culiforge ahhh, definitely not for me then
13:18 Culiforge so do you pretty much stick to the LoC Z server for lookups then?
13:19 jcamins_away Me? No.
13:19 jcamins_away is now known as jcamins
13:19 jcamins I use a lot of Z39.50 servers.
13:19 jcamins But I catalog very specialized collections.
13:20 Culiforge was it you who told me you go around setting up private libraries.. or was that someone else?
13:26 jcamins That was me.
13:26 cait hi Culiforge and jcamins :)
13:27 Culiforge hi cait
13:27 jcamins Good morning cait.
13:28 Culiforge so would there be a way to suppress the auto insertion of the isbn when I do Z lookups then?
13:28 cait more good afternoon )

13:31 cait brr
13:31 jcamins Culiforge: auto-insertion of ISBNs?
13:31 jcamins Z39.50 lookups only use the ISBN if you enter it.
13:32 Culiforge when I open my marc record from the import... under the edit tab there is replace with Z record option that opens the Z search window and fills in the data you have
13:32 jcamins Ah.
13:33 jcamins I think you just have to remove that manually.
13:33 jcamins You could probably write some Javascript to remove the contents of the ISBN box, but you'd have to figure out how yourself.
13:35 Culiforge *jcamins pokes cul with a pointy stick because he knows he can't do that*  :)
13:36 jcamins Culiforge: I wasn't going to be quite that blunt. ;)
13:36 Culiforge It's alright, I'm a big boy I can take it. That and I'm generally good natured.
13:51 Culiforge uh-oh.. something's not right... I should have about 20 items added but when I pqf=@attr 1=_ALLRECORDS @attr 2=103 "" nothing comes up
13:51 jcamins The Zebra server isn't running.
13:52 cait don't worry
13:52 cait we've all been there
13:54 Culiforge so why is it not starting at startup...
13:56 jcamins How did you install Koha? Packages?
13:57 Culiforge pfft.. from the deb pkg I think
13:58 jcamins Hm.
13:58 jcamins That's odd.
13:58 jcamins I've never had any problems with it not automatically starting.
14:08 francharb is now known as francharb_afk
14:16 Culiforge ok, I think I've got it started but I'm not sure
14:16 Culiforge it won't let me rebuild the index
14:17 Culiforge -a -b -z 2>&1 > /dev/null is syntax right?
14:17 jcamins You should use the scripts provided by the package.
14:17 jcamins sudo koha-rebuild-zebra instancename
14:18 Culiforge where instance name is ?
14:18 jcamins The name of the instance you set up using the package.
14:18 jcamins You said you used the Debian packages to set up Koha, right?
14:18 Culiforge I believe so
14:18 jcamins You would've given it some sort of name.
14:19 jcamins Run sudo koha-list
14:20 Culiforge no output from command line, is that right?
14:20 Culiforge sry on the rebuild command
14:21 jcamins There shouldn't be any output from the rebuild_zebra command.
14:21 Culiforge right, ok.. but still no search results.. so apparently I didn't get the zebra server running
14:22 jcamins Run ps aux | grep zebra
14:22 Culiforge gary      6115  0.0  0.1   3376   800 pts/0    S+   09:21   0:00 grep --color=auto zebra
14:23 jcamins Yeah, it's not running.
14:23 jcamins searching faq?
14:23 jcamins wahanui is still missing. :(
14:27 cait oh
14:28 cait perhaps we should mail gmcharlt again?
14:28 cait or is wahanui from rangi?
14:28 jcamins I'm not sure.
14:38 Culiforge ok, time for sunday chores and stuff.. bbl

21:36 rangi of ubuntu or debian?
21:37 cait left #koha
21:38 eythian I've had pretty good luck with both.
21:38 rangi yeah debian usually just works
21:38 rangi lucid to maverick went bad, but the rest of ubuntu seemed ok
21:52 chris_n ubuntu
