11:35 jcamins If anyone is around, is there any chance you could run `perl xt/author/Text_CSV_Various.t`?
11:38 jcamins Actually, never mind.
12:25 francharb hey there
12:25 jcamins Good morning, francharb.
12:25 * jcamins is working on his git tr (=test release) alias.
12:26 francharb I don't have the distinction between today's issues and previous issues. Is is a bug or syspref to activate (which would be weird...)
12:26 francharb hi jcamins
12:26 jcamins francharb: you mean when you're checking items out?
12:26 francharb yes
12:26 jcamins I think that's a bug.
12:26 francharb snifff
12:27 jcamins I'm not 100% sure, but I think there used to be a clear distinction.
12:27 francharb I'm sure there was one
12:27 francharb but I'm not sure when we lost it
12:27 jcamins That I don't know.
12:28 francharb I will report it on bugzilla
12:28 francharb if nobody did already...
12:28 jcamins I don't recall noticing any bug reports about that.
12:28 francharb so it may be a new bug
12:29 jcamins Yeah. :(
12:29 francharb my guess is that it's related to the new UI css
12:29 francharb but at the same time, humm
12:30 francharb I don't know actually
12:30 francharb will see
12:30 * francharb is adding one more point on his TODO list
12:48 jcamins Grr. debian/build-git-snapshot doesn't die when it fails. :(
12:48 francharb sounds bad
12:49 jcamins francharb: only if you want to warn the user "hey, you, the package build FAILED!"
12:49 jcamins And I do.
12:49 jcamins So, yeah, kind of bad. :(
12:49 francharb :(
12:51 jcamins Okay, figured it out.
12:51 jcamins I need to add "use autodie qw(:all);"
12:53 jcamins Or maybe not.
12:53 jcamins I will report a bug and assign it to eythian, and hopefully he'll know how to fix it.
12:55 francharb cross fingers
12:55 francharb ;)
12:55 jcamins Bug 8050.
12:55 huginn Bug[…]w_bug.cgi?id=8050 normal, P5 - low, ---, robin, NEW , debian/build-git-snapshot should warn user if it fails
12:58 jcamins Woohoo! I successfully built the packages!
12:59 jcamins @later tell eythian I need your patches for the 3.6.x Debian changelog.
12:59 huginn jcamins: The operation succeeded.
13:39 Irma left #koha
13:41 jcamins It takes about twenty minutes to test building a release.
13:42 jcamins Next I have to figure out how to test make install.
13:44 jcamins Bah. The script doesn't quite work.
14:09 jcamins Yay!
14:09 jcamins The script worked!
14:10 francharb ++
14:10 jcamins Okay, _now_ I need to figure out how to test the make install bit.
14:10 francharb good luck! ;)
14:11 jcamins Maybe I should have it install the package, too.
14:13 jcamins Thoughts on that?
14:14 francharb not at all
14:15 * jcamins thinks about it.
14:15 francharb jcamins, I'm a librarian with little technical skills actually... ;)
14:15 jcamins Well, there's no reason *not* to install the package, given that I do the releases on separate VM that doesn't use packages.
14:16 francharb well... I'm trying hard to think about it
14:16 jcamins :)
14:16 francharb but all I can do is to cross my fingers I think!
14:16 jcamins I think I'll do it.
14:16 francharb ;)
14:17 jcamins If I can figure out the file name of the package it creates.
15:24 jcamins Testing package building is really, _really_ boring.
15:28 Culiforge joined #koha
15:30 Culiforge I need to use my machine temporarily for something other than koha... is it enough to just koha-stop-zebra or do I need to koha-disable as well?
15:31 jcamins Culiforge: why do you need to shut down Koha at all?
15:31 jcamins first question?
15:31 wahanui rumour has it first question is "What are you trying to do?" or or what is the goal
15:33 Culiforge jcamins: I believe the numerous indexing is interfering with a graphics program I'm running... I could be wrong but I'm just checking different things out
15:33 jcamins Culiforge: then yes, stopping Zebra should be enough.
15:33 Culiforge jcamins: sweet-o, thanks
15:34 jcamins However, I'd probably just do koha-disable, because that stops Zebra, too.
15:34 jcamins (as well as giving you a nice message so you don't think that your system has stopped working)
15:34 jcamins (and by "nice message" I mean your site won't come up)
15:37 Culiforge jcamins: alright, that sounds a better one. Like I said just checking things out cause I cant seem to find why my system bogs down while doing A/V work.. 3.2GHz proc and 2G of ram should more than be enough for it to breathe easy so I'm sure there's something amiss
15:38 jcamins Culiforge: I wouldn't think 2GB of RAM would be enough for any video work.
15:38 jcamins However, for still images that should be fine.
15:40 Culiforge jcamins: it's nothing heavy, just re-encoding, not full on editing or anything. It might have been an update that got passed that's making things work differently
15:49 Culiforge left #koha
16:00 pastebot "jcamins" at pasted "rangi: My script" (47 lines) at
16:01 jcamins chris_n: you might also be interested in the script I wrote:
16:02 jcamins I got frustrated with type the same "prove" command over and over.
16:02 jcamins Then it got more complicated.

20:03 jcamins Does anyone know how I extract a tar file to a particular directory?
20:04 druthb1 tar -xvf <filename> <target directory, default current wd>
20:04 druthb1 (I think)
20:05 jcamins druthb1: turns out you use -C dir
20:05 druthb1 Puh.
20:05 * jcamins wasn't sure where he'd get an answer so he asked on a bunch of channels. :)
20:44 francharb joined #koha
20:44 francharb left #koha
21:56 jcamins Well, there should probably be a way to choose *not* to do certain steps other than commenting them out, but the script works pretty well. :)
