13:56 kyle I've been testing the patch for Bug 7231. It works great, as long as there is no dollar sign in 020$c. Is it acceptable for Koha to choke when currency symbols are used in price fields?

13:59 kf kyle: I would note that on the bug, if the standard says you can do that, it should not choke
13:59 oleonard What do you mean by "choke?" It should have error-handling at least.
13:59 kyle jcamins: I'll do that. Thanks.
13:59 kf I mean the marc21 standard
13:59 kyle oleonard: it doesn't really choke, it just doesn't pull the price over. You get an empty field instead of the price.
13:59 kf we probably need it to search for numbers, and decimal , and decimal .
14:00 kyle I suppose in a way it is a graceful failure, because you can really put anything you want in there, it's not limited to a single dollar value anyway.
14:01 kf kyle: about 345 - that looks weird, perhaps unimarc?
14:01 kf but it should check the syspref if that is the case
14:01 jcamins kf: the currency symbol is usually included in 020.
14:01 jcamins kf: I think that's RDA.
14:01 kyle Not unimarc either, I don't know why it's in there. Paul wrote the code.
14:01 jcamins No, maybe not.
14:01 kf it is, but not related to price
14:01 jcamins 365 is price.
14:01 kf kyle: wonder why there is no UNIMARC/MARC21 thing
14:01 kf same field?
14:02 kf
14:02 kyle In the sub it uses 020 for marc21, and 010 for unimarc.
14:02 kf I think that is failed qa
14:02 kf oleonard: ok with me reopening 2780?
14:02 kyle but that is not directly related to the patch in question.
14:02 kf bug 2780
14:02 huginn` Bug[…]w_bug.cgi?id=2780 minor, P3, ---, oleonard, RESOLVED FIXED, capitalizing strings
14:02 oleonard Yes
14:03 * oleonard didn't even know it was closed
14:03 kf I didn't even know it existed :)
14:03 kf I wondered about the capitalization for some time
14:03 kf it's very mixed up right now
14:03 * oleonard had it filed in the corner of his brain for nagging open bugs he didn't want to deal with
14:04 kf heh

14:04 kf Publisher Location
14:04 oleonard I agree 100%, and am personally to blame for much of it.
14:05 kf I don't want to blame anyone - I only want a rule to follow!
14:05 kf so next time I am working on those templates... I know which is the right form! :)
14:05 kf Advanced Search   | Browse by author or subject   | Tag Cloud
14:06 kf oleonard: does the rule always work? that the first word should be capitalized?
14:06 kf and names and languages, countries (of course)
14:06 oleonard I think so. If we find what we think is an exception we can discuss.
14:08 kf Perhaps starting in the opac would not be a bad idea
14:08 kf making it more consistent carefullly

14:17 lculber jcamins:  you said to call if I needed help. HELP!!  Do I install indexing mode for authorities as dom?
14:17 jcamins Yup.
14:17 jcamins If you're doing a new installation, you should apply the patch for bug 7284 first, then do the installation.
14:17 huginn` Bug[…]w_bug.cgi?id=7284 major, P3, ---, jcamins, Needs Signoff , Authority matching algorithm improvements
14:17 jcamins That'll save you a reindexing step later. ;)
14:18 lculber thanks.  I thought I saw the patch, but in the git but maybe not.  I'll make clean start over.
14:19 jcamins If you're part-way through the installation process, it's pretty easy to copy the new DOM config over manually and reindex.
14:20 lculber I need the easiest way possible. Which would you recommend.
14:20 jcamins Have you put any data in the database yet?
14:20 lculber No. I'm just starting the install now
14:20 jcamins In that case, the easiest way is to apply the patch, then rerun the installation.
14:21 lculber Got it. Thanks.  I'll come back if I need more help.  Thanks.

16:11 oleonard I wonder, in light of Bug 7339, whether we need to re-think how we handle contextual help
16:11 huginn` Bug[…]w_bug.cgi?id=7339 critical, P5 - low, ---, paul.poulain, Signed Off , Help System in IE8-9 Does Not Load With 500 Error
16:12 wizzyrea are people actually using the ability to edit that help?
16:12 kf it gets overwritten with update
16:13 wizzyrea then no, probably not.
16:13 kf and the directories have the wrong permissions when installing
16:13 kf in my experience
16:13 wizzyrea same
16:13 kf so you have to change the permissions... and save them from being overwritten
16:13 wizzyrea which means that if we want to keep them
16:13 wizzyrea they probably need to move to somewhere like /etc/
16:13 oleonard Sounds like a pretty sucky feature :P
16:13 kf the idea is good...
16:13 wizzyrea yea, the idea *is* good
16:14 kf perhaps the way to do it is wrong
16:14 wizzyrea but I think the help should probably be kept in the db?
16:14 kf and it would be like a small cms
16:14 kf saved in the database
16:14 kf and you could add custom sections.. that would be save when updating
16:14 wizzyrea we already have that kind of functionality with "news"
16:14 kf yep
16:14 laurence joined #koha
16:14 kf I was exactly thinking about news :)
16:14 wizzyrea great minds :)
16:14 kf the problem witht hat is... that database stuff is not translatable
16:14 kf *sigh*
16:14 wizzyrea well
16:14 wizzyrea the sample strings would be translatable?
16:15 kf translating in sql is very hard
16:15 kf and it's a lot of text
16:15 wizzyrea ah yea ok
16:15 wizzyrea so
16:15 kf a way to parse them into a separate po file.. that would be kinda cool
16:15 wizzyrea well how could we do it so that it would be easier to translate, but still ... ^^ this
16:15 kf I think magnuse was fighting translating the help :)
16:15 kf you could save it for last, starting with the interface
16:16 kf with separate files
16:17 wizzyrea what about
16:17 wizzyrea if in the translation script
16:17 wizzyrea when you install a language
16:17 wizzyrea it dumps out the help from the db into a .po file
16:18 wizzyrea then you "install" the new help
16:18 wizzyrea when you're done
16:18 kf hm
16:18 kf I am not sure this wil work
16:18 kf you will still want all versions
16:18 wizzyrea keep in mind, I've got no idea how it actually works.
16:18 kf installing a language should use the po file to generate sql to write that into your database
16:18 kf ah
16:18 kf but
16:18 kf perhaps we could just keep the text files
16:19 kf as is
16:19 kf and add a text block you can edit to them
16:19 kf on top
16:19 kf might be easier
16:19 kf so you can make additions...
16:19 wizzyrea or, instead of
16:19 wizzyrea writing to the files
16:19 wizzyrea keep the extra stuff in the db
16:19 wizzyrea and display it along with the stuff that gets updated
16:20 wizzyrea so your changes are always preserved
16:20 wizzyrea but the help could change around it
16:20 wizzyrea does that make sense?

16:40 kf sorry
16:40 kf covered in tickets here...
16:41 wizzyrea do you know if the new floating rules fall victim to the same issue that the other hold policy rules do, in that they don't fall back correctly (i.e. every library must have them defined for an item type for it to work across all branches/patron categories/item types)
16:41 wizzyrea I'm going to assume that problem still exists.
16:41 kf no idea
16:42 wizzyrea that was for sekjal :)
16:42 sekjal wizzyrea:  I believe that problem is resolved
16:42 wizzyrea with this patch or in general
16:42 sekjal I remember testing with default library rules only, and having it work
16:43 sekjal my patch didn't change any mechanics for the hold policies in general
16:43 wizzyrea k
16:43 sekjal just piggybacked on what already existed
16:43 wizzyrea k
16:43 wizzyrea cool
16:43 wizzyrea ty

18:52 Culiforge Does anyone know if there is a koha rpm for fedora?
18:55 jcamins Culiforge: there is not.
18:57 Culiforge jcamins: thx, saw someone on fed boards say there was a YUM repo for it for CentOS in which they also said that cent and fedora enterprise were the "same'
18:57 Culiforge figured I'd check here with the knowledgeable folks
18:57 jcamins Culiforge: maybe I'm wrong, then.
18:58 jcamins However, to the best of my knowledge, the last RPM was for 3.0.
18:58 cait wizzyrea: do you remember which menus were broken after applying the translation patch?
18:59 Culiforge so then my next question, the boss wants koha on fedora 14.. wiki has instructions for fed 7. what's best method in your opinions for installing..
19:00 jcamins Culiforge: persuade him to use Debian.
19:00 jcamins Barring that, run Debian using kvm.
19:00 Culiforge jcamins: wish I could.. he's hooked on fedora because of rpmtools
19:01 jcamins Doesn't kvm let you run Fedora but also run Debian?
19:05 Culiforge jcamins: I asked around in the Fedora forums this morning for some advice and got soundly thrashed for it.. Makes me wanna dump Fedora right now if that's any indication of what their community is like
19:06 jcamins Culiforge: I haven't heard anything good about installing Koha on Fedora/RH.
19:07 Culiforge jcamins: I'll have to talk to the boss-man/fedora-man about it.. he seems to think it's easy-peasy
19:08 sekjal Culiforge:  I can tell you from experience that RedHat installations are an absolute nightmare (if not flat out impossible).  Not sure how much of that applies to Fedora

19:22 lculber Can I still proceed. Everything else looks right.
19:22 jcamins If that file isn't there, the patch probably hasn't been applied correctly.
19:22 wizzyrea ^^
19:22 jcamins The other files that are called for are required for all Koha installations, it just so happens that they have to be updated by the patch.
19:23 jcamins The following commands should take care of the installation:
19:23 jcamins Actually, I'll use (one moment while I paste them)
19:25 lculber All your nice settings are in the system preferences. I was so excited. :(
19:25 jcamins Oh, they are?
19:25 jcamins Hm.
19:26 jcamins If they show up in the system preferences, the problem is probably a typo in my instructions.
19:26 jcamins If you run git log, does it show a *really long* commit message about bug 7284?

19:45 jcamins export PERL5LIB=/home/lculber/kohaclone
19:45 jcamins Then rerun.
19:45 jcamins schuster: At this point I'm having other people test so that we can get the improved linking into Koha ASAP, so there's probably no point in sending it.
19:47 schuster Sorry I've been so behind in helping test...  I finally found my usb drives to help me move files around here at the office!  For me to do testing and interact I have to do it at home right now so it is a pain.  Needs to look into what it would take to open stuff here at the office.

21:29 cait I tihnk I know what happened
21:29 cait the authimport used our 001 numbers
21:30 cait and the bibliographic data I used had $9 fields...
21:30 mtj morning #koha
21:30 * mtj waves to all
21:30 cait and it's only working for some because the X at the end got cut off in auth_headers

21:31 jcamins cait: right.
21:31 jcamins That'll do it.
21:31 cait yeah
21:31 cait got only confused because it was only a few entries where it worked
21:31 cait sorry
21:32 drojf1 we never used authorities since we had no real library system. if we will start to use them, will we have to link them by hand after importing? or is there some magic to do that for us?
21:32 * wizzyrea waits for it
21:32 jcamins drojf1: cait is testing the magic for linking. :)
21:32 wizzyrea there it is.
21:33 cait hehe
21:33 drojf1 :)
21:33 jcamins You should test it too.
21:33 cait he is so predictable :P
21:33 wizzyrea hehe
21:33 jcamins See how it works for you.
21:33 * wizzyrea is trying to get authorities out of her production system
21:33 cait oh
21:33 cait is tomorrow blue cat wednesday?
21:33 drojf1 not tonight, had a long day of filemaker boredom. but i will try tomorrow
21:33 drojf1 that is, i will try to try :)
21:34 drojf1 which bug is it?
21:34 jcamins Bug 7284.
21:34 wahanui well, bug 7284 is the first step to making that happen.
21:34 jcamins cait: yup.
21:34 huginn` Bug[…]w_bug.cgi?id=7284 major, P3, ---, jcamins, Needs Signoff , Authority matching algorithm improvements
21:34 cait say hi to chester :)
21:35 jcamins I will. :)
21:36 cait wow 4 new system preferences?
21:36 jcamins Yeah.
21:36 jcamins And actually there's one undocumented feature.
21:36 jcamins I realized that last night.
21:38 * drojf1 is too tired to even read the whole description now :(
21:38 * jcamins will update the bug to reflect it.
21:39 * wizzyrea loves surprises
21:39 cait drojf1: I go one sentence .at a time
21:39 ago43_lunch is now known as ago43
21:40 cait ok, I tested the first part
21:40 cait but now I am not even sure what BiblioAddsAuthorities does
21:40 jcamins It sets whether you can edit authority-controlled fields at all.
21:41 drojf1 i will try tomorrow. i have the feeling that i wont be too koha-productive though since i will actually go to the library. there are always people to bother me with non-koha things ;)
21:41 drojf1 cait: maybe you can write me a walktrhough for the walkthrough and i follow in your footsteps ;)
21:42 cait lol
21:42 jcamins cait: I thought about eliminating it, but thought that might be a problem for QA.
21:42 jcamins I mean, that QA-ers wouldn't like it.
21:42 cait sorry, I  am stuck in the labyrinth myself
21:42 drojf1 i hope you used bread crumbs
21:42 cait yarn :)
21:42 cait bread crumbs get eaten by the cats
21:43 jcamins cait: but yarn gets played with!
21:43 eythian hi everyone
21:43 cait hi eythian
21:43 wizzyrea holy snaps.
21:43 jcamins eythian! You should join the 7284-signing off party!
21:43 cait jcamins: yeah... so i am LOST!
21:43 wizzyrea I did not know that members/ even existed.
21:43 * wizzyrea feels a bit dumb now
21:43 jcamins cait: :(
21:43 jcamins cait: I thought I made it very clear.
21:43 cait wizzyrea: apparently noone knew
21:43 jcamins I guess not?
21:43 cait jcamins: yes, but my yarn got played with...
21:44 drojf1 lol
21:44 * cait thinks it was the blue cat
21:44 cait jcamins: it's only getting late and I had a long day - will try to continue tomorrow
21:44 cait I have set up the database now and cataloging behaves like it should so far :)
21:44 cait no worries
21:46 drojf1 i dont know if we even have a framework for authorities now. or specs for one. i see a whole new world of fun in front of me
21:46 collum left #koha
21:47 jcamins drojf1: the authorities framework comes by default.
21:47 drojf1 yes but we have to decide what fields we will use
21:47 drojf1 and i hope i am not the person to do that
21:47 eythian jcamins: authorities scare me a little I think :)
21:48 drojf1 have not looked at that much yet
21:48 drojf1 eythian: me too :D
21:49 jcamins eythian: that's how we know you're human. :P
21:50 cait lol
21:50 cait drojf1: if you set an installation up with the sample files, it should work for playing with jcamins patch
21:50 wizzyrea oh - uh, I should do THAT
21:51 wizzyrea rather than do what I'm doing :P
21:51 wizzyrea cait++ for always having the best ideas.
21:51 cait ?
21:51 wizzyrea using the sample data.
21:51 wizzyrea der.
21:51 cait ah
21:51 drojf1 cait: yeah i thought so. but its an issue for our import too and i have not heard much from my colleague about it. so i guess nothing happened in that field for us
21:51 cait I meant the frameworks
21:51 cait you will still need authority records I guess
21:51 wizzyrea hrmph.
21:51 wizzyrea :)
21:51 cait heh

22:01 wahanui marc21 is at[…]hic/ecbdlist.html ,
22:01 wizzyrea i'm vaguely surprised that there is no reference to marc being evil or needing to die in there.
22:01 drojf1 :D
22:02 eythian wahanui: marc
22:02 wahanui
22:02 eythian there you go
22:02 wizzyrea keke

22:03 * drojf1 sneaks off to bed
22:03 drojf1 good night #koha, have a nice meeting
22:04 wizzyrea jcamins:[…]-from-drille.html
22:04 cait night drojf1
22:05 jcamins That's pretty cool, but I'm not sure how practical it is.
22:05 jcamins I prefer my reading lamps to shine line down from overhead.
22:05 wizzyrea it's not - just a use for very old (not rare) books
22:06 druthb $140-150 for that?  dang.  I'm in the wrong bizness.
22:07 wizzyrea it's not too late!
22:07 * wizzyrea imagines them made out of old romance novels
22:07 wizzyrea spicy!
22:07 druthb lulz.
22:07 cait lol
22:07 cait wizzyrea++
22:09 druthb 11 or 12 bucks for the bulb, find the books at goodwill (or make a library book sale VERY happy), plus some wiring, a switch, and a bulb base....

22:14 cait good night all
22:14 wizzyrea gnite cait
22:14 druthb wizzyrea++   #gots her reasons, m'kay?
22:15 lculber Okay, well now when I try to get to it using the ip address I can't see the data.  I can see it in the database, but not in the browser
22:15 wizzyrea but you get the web interface?
22:15 cait will not be around for the meeting :(
22:15 cait 3am... *sigh*
22:15 lculber Yes, but it is empty.
22:16 cait left #koha
22:16 wizzyrea meaning that you can click around, but there's nothing in there to look at?
22:16 wizzyrea or that the page is entirely blank
22:16 wizzyrea sorry to be dense :)
22:16 lculber I can click around but it doesn't even look like the right version. It looks like 3.6, when it should be master - that's what I cloned
22:17 wizzyrea well 3.6 and master would look very similar.
22:17 wizzyrea but, the point is
22:17 lculber In about it says. 3.6. 0. 0
22:17 wizzyrea ah, are you running more than one instance on this test machine?
22:17 magnus_afk 64 bugs that need signoff - more awesomeness! i'll do my best to tackle bug 6440 tomorrow, if noone beats me to it
22:17 huginn` Bug[…]w_bug.cgi?id=6440 enhancement, P5 - low, ---, julian.maurice, Needs Signoff , Koha's OAI-PMH does not support sets
22:18 wizzyrea that one is all yours :)
22:18 magnus_afk wizzyrea: yay ;-)
22:18 lculber wizzyrea,  yes, afraid there is another instance - 3.6.2 and it's beautiful.
22:18 magnus_afk g'night #koha, and happy hunting!
22:18 magnus_afk is now known as magnus_away
22:19 lculber I gave the other instance a name of koha_test and tried that, - no go, and so tried the ip.  Same thing.  I don't know what else to try.
22:19 jcamins lculber: probably you need to run updatedatabase.
22:19 melia_lunch is now known as melia
22:20 jcamins lculber: or, how did you set up multiple instances?
22:20 wizzyrea I don't think that would keep her from seeing things like patrons, for example
22:20 jcamins wizzyrea: ah, hm.
22:20 * jcamins didn't read all the way back.
22:20 wizzyrea I suspect that there is some confusion about which koha-conf.xml it's looking at
22:20 lculber I set up the multiple instances using the instructions on the wiki
22:20 wizzyrea oh, link?
22:20 wahanui rumour has it link is a bit confusing
22:20 wizzyrea forget link
22:20 wahanui wizzyrea: I forgot link
22:20 slef bleah anyone want a cataloguing question?
22:21 jcamins slef: no, what is it?
22:21 wizzyrea hahaha
22:21 Space_Librarian depends...
22:22 slef when cataloging a book that was donated, can the donor's name go in the marc21 anywhere?
22:22 jcamins slef: 561.
22:22 jcamins Or...
22:22 jcamins 541.
22:22 jcamins Probably 541.
22:22 wizzyrea nm I found it, lculber.
22:23 wizzyrea ok so
22:23 slef jcamins: 542 looks good. ta.
22:23 slef jcamins++
22:23 jcamins 541.
22:23 jcamins 542 is for copyright.
22:24 slef 1
22:24 slef sorry
22:24 slef kindle keyb a bit fiddly
22:24 wizzyrea ..... kindle?
22:24 * wizzyrea faints
22:24 slef yeah
22:24 slef it runs debian
22:24 wizzyrea hehehehe
22:24 wizzyrea nice one
22:24 slef low power
22:25 slef free 3g
22:25 wizzyrea actually that's quite awesome.
22:25 wizzyrea easy to read :)
22:25 schuster Why in the MARC and not just the item record itself?
22:25 slef although 3g only in the browser
22:26 schuster That way when the Library "weeds" the donated copy and another copy comes in you don't think that was the donated copy. and your MARC record is still "clean"
22:26 slef so I just regret the amaxonism and foxconn
22:26 talljoy is now known as Jeeeeoooy
22:26 slef schuster: very good point
22:26 schuster OPAC note is a good spot for the item - Donated by- and still searchable by Koha.
22:26 schuster I have moments...
22:26 slef schuster: best ask them why they put them in the bibs on the current cat
22:27 wizzyrea slef - it's getting difficult to buy ethically produced electronics. :(
22:27 slef so that'll take a week...
22:27 wizzyrea they're like the nike shoes of the current generation
22:27 schuster probably because that was the only place they could put it to be indexed. - slef
22:27 slef wizzyrea: getting???
22:27 wizzyrea well i'm not sure you actually *can* buy ethically produced electronics.
22:28 jcamins lculber: where is your master install located?
22:28 jcamins I mean, koha-dev, koha-dev2... ?
22:28 wizzyrea i was *trying* (poorly) to be optimistics
22:28 wizzyrea :P
22:28 slef wizzyrea: we've always had this prob. Ever sinceI've looked into it
22:28 schuster ok done for now!  I'm working on my batch picture upload command line and borrower batch command line utilities for cron jobs that we have running
22:29 maximep left #koha
22:29 wizzyrea slef: :(((
22:29 slef wizzyrea: it's the only bit of the coop codewe completely fail on and always have
22:30 schuster left #koha
22:30 wizzyrea don't even know where to begin on that problem.
22:30 slef and niw lots of stuff has conflict minerals in
22:30 slef now
22:30 slef me either
22:30 lculber jcamins:  master was downloaded to /home/lculber/kohaclone but it was installed to the regular koha paths like /user/share/koha_test
22:31 lculber the instance is called koha_test
22:31 slef I've a bamboo keyboard and some uk-made stuff
22:31 slef but it's minor
22:31 wizzyrea *nod*
22:31 slef @marc 952
22:31 wahanui The 952 field is used by Koha to store item data in MARC21 and is described at[…]_fields_%289xx%29

22:37 jcamins lculber: oh, in that case you need to adjust the export... commands to match /usr/share/koha_test/*
22:38 jcamins Probably you need to adjust your Apache config to point to /usr/share/koha_test too.
22:38 wizzyrea sounded to me like she had apache sorted :)
22:41 mbalmer left #koha
22:41 lculber We got it.  It was an apache configuration issue.  And then the database did need to be updated. Thanks for the help wizzyrea and jcamins. I was going nuts.
22:42 ago43 is now known as Albertus
22:43 lculber Now about says
22:43 trea left #koha
22:43 wizzyrea squee!
22:43 jcamins Hooray!
22:44 lculber Yes!  My data is all there and I can start testing. Sorry it's taken me so long. Thanks for your patience and help.
22:46 lculber jcamins:  We have lots of authorities and the only ones that are linked are the ones since we moved to Koha in May.  How would you like us to start?
22:47 lculber Ones added I mean.
22:47 lculber Most of them are older from old system
22:51 jcamins lculber: there's a complete test plan on the ticket, but you might also just try turning LinkerRelink and LinkerKeepStale on and turning AutoCreateAuthorities off.
22:51 jcamins See if that gets the links set up the way you want.
22:51 jcamins Or, maybe even better:
22:52 jcamins Turn LinkerKeepStale off, and set LinkerOptions to "broader_headings"
22:52 jcamins (leaving LinkerRelink on and AutoCreateAuthorities off)
22:53 jcamins Then run -l -v > ~/linker.log
22:54 jcamins Do you have a lot of duplicate authorities?
22:54 Guillaume left #koha
22:56 lculber This is exciting. Will  work now?  I saw that was one of the tests.  Should I hold off on it?
22:56 jcamins It should.
22:57 lculber We shouldn't have any duplicate auhtorities as far as I know - but that doesn't mean we don't
22:57 jcamins The best thing to do for testing would probably be to work through the test plan on the bug, then try the combination of settings I just gave you and see if that links everything you feel should be linked.
22:57 jcamins Hm.
22:57 jcamins You might want to also use the FirstMatch LinkerModule.
22:58 jcamins (for the final test)
22:59 jcamins The test plan will enable you to confidently sign off on the bug for Koha.
23:00 luisb left #koha
23:00 jcamins The configuration I suggested will hopefully meet MDAH's needs long-term. :)
23:00 lculber Fantastic. I'm going to get the cataloger who specializes in authority work to work with me. She will be excited and know what to watch for. We are SO excited!!
23:01 lculber jcamins++
23:01 jcamins :)
23:01 * jcamins is very excited to have this in Koha, too.
23:01 lculber Off for testing. thanks!
23:02 jcamins You're welcome.
