19:33 francharb I'm going to test it as soon as I can
19:33 jcamins Yeah, I only used it on 3.6, so I didn't know that there was some change that made it not work on 3.8.
19:34 jcamins I found out yesterday.
19:34 jcamins Took me four hours to figure out how to login. :(
19:34 francharb at least, you found something to make it works...

20:15 francharb bye all!
20:15 francharb good night
20:15 drojf hi mveron :)
20:15 francharb good day
20:15 francharb ;)
20:15 drojf night francharb
20:17 mveron hi drojf
20:17 drojf working late?
20:18 mveron Looking England Italia and doing some Koha stuff.
20:18 mveron e.g. Bug 8301
20:18 huginn Bug[…]w_bug.cgi?id=8301 enhancement, P5 - low, ---, veron, NEW , Display additional system information (preferences) on About page to minimize support cases
20:20 drojf cool! i like it
20:20 drojf mveron++
20:20 mveron Thanks...
20:21 mveron I'm walking now through the documentation to find some other preferences to check
20:23 drojf maybe these things could also show up at the preference screen when trying to have bad combinations. or prevent them even? somehow it should not be possible to save settings that break things in the first place
20:25 mveron drojf: I agree, but I think it would require a lot of work regarding the preference system.
20:25 jcamins Yeah. Also, there are very few combinations of system preferences that are just *wrong*.
20:26 drojf probably. i don't know much about that yet, i just made my first syspref :)
20:26 mveron With my proposition we can catch the most common error or mistakes
20:26 jcamins Having NoZebra set to "Do not use" is the only one that is absolutely, definitively, a mistake.
20:28 eythian do you have that backwards?
20:28 eythian (sysprefs in the negative should be banned I think)
20:29 mveron ?
20:29 jcamins There are other things that often cause problems, but we can't really prevent people setting them, because they are there for a good reason.
20:29 jcamins eythian: no, I have the right.
20:29 jcamins eythian: NoZebra = "Do/Do not use Zebra."
20:29 jcamins NoZebra should be entirely eradicated.
20:29 jcamins NoZebra does not even sort of function.
20:29 eythian oh right. Yeah, it's a terrible name for a preference. Forgetting the context like I just did inverts its meaning
20:30 jcamins Right.
20:30 eythian but yes, it should be removed.
20:30 mveron jcamins: See comments on Bug 8298
20:30 huginn Bug[…]w_bug.cgi?id=8298 normal, P5 - low, ---, gmcharlt, NEW , Can't call method "subfield" on an undefined value at (sub _AddBiblioNoZebra)
20:30 eythian also: we need to have better detection of the Zebra server going missing
20:30 drojf i think it is only there so you can switch from nozebra to zebra. that is odd ;)
20:30 jcamins mveron: yes, I saw that.
20:31 jcamins Removing NoZebra is on my to-do list.
20:31 jcamins Unfortunately, my to-do list is much too long, and that is just not something that makes it very high.
20:31 drojf remove nozebra now, remove zebra later :D
20:31 mveron eythian: Zebra not running could be a great thing on the About: System" Tab, but I do not know how to get the information
20:31 jcamins drojf: well, let's keep Zebra awhile longer.
20:32 mveron I mean an information like "Zebra sever not runnig, please start it"
20:33 jcamins mveron: agreed. I don't know how to check that either.
20:34 mveron Do a search on letter 'a'. if we have no results Zebra is supposed not tu run  :-)
20:34 mveron to run
20:34 drojf depends on the language
20:34 jcamins ^^
20:35 drojf and/ or script
20:35 mveron и  :-)
20:37 drojf is there a way in perl to check if a file exists on some webserver?
20:37 drojf (not related to checking for running zebras)
20:38 jcamins drojf: -d ?
20:38 jcamins drojf: I'm not quite sure what you want, though.
20:39 jcamins drojf: if you mean on a remote web server, perhaps you could try downloading the file?
20:39 drojf yes a remote webserver, not the local one
20:39 eythian mveron: well, if you do a search, presumably an error condition occurs somewhere that we could pick up and say something meaningful other than "no results found"
20:39 drojf yes, i thought there might be something better
20:40 jcamins drojf: I think you just have to do a HEAD request?
20:40 eythian drojf: do a head request, see if you get a 404 error
20:40 mveron eythian: Thanks. I'll do some tests
20:42 drojf sounds good, thanks
20:43 drojf mveron: that game could use a goal or two
20:44 mveron drojf: Yes, waiting...
20:58 rangi jcamins: what do you want your username to be? jcamins?
21:03 jcamins rangi: jcamins would be perfect.
