05:40 umer joined #koha
05:46 umer I have a very strange problem. I have two installations of koha one is 3.2 and other is 3.8, I imported mrc files for records in both the installations seperately and (mrc files have items information as well). For zebra indexing i use the follwing command on both the installations
05:46 umer perl /path/to/ -b -r -v
05:47 umer Now, in koha 3.2 it works great. all the records and items are added into the serch and every thing is perfect. But in 3.8, items are not added into the search and when i search for a book, then items against the record says availability: no items available, however there are items present in that record. what could be the issue?
05:50 umer can anyone please help me with this??

10:23 mtompset Greetings, Oak. Long time no chat. What's new with you?
10:24 Oak hm, nothing much. trying to get organized and do stuff I want to do. you know, the usual.
10:27 mtompset Hmmm... koha-common has upgraded?
10:30 slef slides?
10:30 wahanui kf should be writing slides. Get to it! Schnell!
10:31 mtompset i guess I installed the 3.8.3 version before.

10:43 Barrc1 joined #koha
10:46 Barrc1 Hello all - would anyone have an idea, in pseudo terms, what might cause user A, who logs into OPAC, to be presented with user B's details page (and account)?
10:48 slef Barrc1: caching? Them having some overlap in cardnumber and/or username?
10:49 drojf obvious but probably not the case: user A using the login and password of user B; also maybe user A being the koha database user may trigger crazy things
10:49 Barrc1 slef: Yeah, I thought caching too, but seemed to have ruled that out at this stage. Overlap in cardnumber / username? What are you thinking ?
10:50 slef Barrc1: that user B is trying to login with their cardnumber, but that's also user A's username (near the bottom of the details page)
10:50 slef so they're actually logging in as user A
10:50 slef which is possible if passwords are weak or the same
10:51 Barrc1 OK, I see what you mean now. That is unlikly too (although I will check), one thing I left out (on purpose!) until now is that the site authenticates against their MS LDAP server
10:51 eythian slides?
10:51 wahanui kf should be writing slides. Get to it! Schnell!
10:52 drojf kf better hurry or wahanui might eat them again
10:52 kf hmpf.
10:59 slef Barrc1: well, try to make the problem repeatable, ideally on a demo or sandbox, as we can maybe help further. If you can't, that strongly suggests a local setup problem.
11:11 magnuse slides?
11:11 wahanui kf should be writing slides. Get to it! Schnell!
11:11 Barrc1 slef: I can't recreate it against the actual live LDAP system and it only happens rarely (6 reports). However, at the moment I have LDAP debug on to the max along with the dbh debug and hopfully it will pick up's wierd.
11:22 koyauni hi guys
11:23 koyauni the issue with Plesk is solved and now we are on the track with KOHA, many thanks for all help, see here[…]637069#post637069
11:24 jcamins Good news!
11:24 wahanui i guess good news is it looks like it's running properly.
11:24 Irma joined #koha
11:29 drojf joined #koha
11:30 mtompset OH! no wonder the apt-get upgrade is failing.
11:31 mtompset It's the % problem.
11:31 jcamins % problem?
11:31 mtompset ubuntu.\
11:31 mtompset mysql.
11:31 jcamins Oh.
11:31 jcamins Yes.
11:35 mtompset Let's try this again.
11:35 * mtompset laughs.
11:36 mtompset I think the upgrade script needs to be improved.
11:36 mtompset I did an apt-get install koha-common for 3.8.3
11:36 mtompset I didn't get around to doing the webinstall step.
11:37 mtompset And now the apt-get upgrade to trying to run all the update scripts on an empty DB.
11:38 jcamins mtompset: it is supposed to.
11:38 jcamins You get warnings, but that's all.
11:38 mtompset Can't a "check if the DB is empty" be put in there?
11:38 jcamins Just ignore them.
11:38 mtompset I'm going to.
11:38 mtompset They are just warnings.
11:38 jcamins I suppose it could be, but no one's ever cared.
11:39 eythian I saw that yesterday actually, wouldn't mind putting a fix in, it does make it look like something really terrible happened.
11:39 eythian (even though it's safe)
11:39 mtompset of course it's safe... there's no data to mess up!
12:10 nengard joined #koha
12:17 mtompset Hmm... interesting... it did create a bunch of empty tables.

12:38 mtompset Hmm... I'm having importing issues.
12:38 mtompset ERROR 2013 (HY000): Lost connection to MySQL server during query
12:39 mtompset ERROR 2006 (HY000): MySQL server has gone away
12:39 mtompset No connection. Trying to reconnect...
12:39 mtompset I'm just trying to "source blah.sql"
12:39 mtompset Any ideas?
12:39 jcamins mtompset: that would be a MySQL issue.
12:39 wahanui Any ideas are welcome :)
12:39 jcamins Your server died.
12:40 jcamins If I had to guess, I'd say you were probably doing something else on the system while the import was running, and inadvertantly restarted MySQL.
12:40 jcamins You can also check disk space.
12:40 matts joined #koha
12:40 mtompset disk space is NOT the issue.
12:41 mtompset This has 25GB drive, and a very minimal ubuntu with koha requirements.
12:41 jcamins Then (presuming you didn't partition it so that /var has already run out of space), sounds like you restarted MySQL in the middle of the load.
12:42 mtompset AH!
12:42 mtompset Or the zebra daemon got in the way?
12:42 jcamins Not likely.
12:42 jcamins And by "not likely" I mean "I see no way that the MySQL client could have accidentally connected to Zebra."
12:43 jcamins This really is an issue completely internal to MySQL.
12:47 NateC joined #koha
12:48 mtompset Well, I'm going to try again. Let's see. I just want my data in, so I can run the web installer already. :)
12:50 * magnuse cheers mtompset on
12:50 mtompset Thanks for the encouragement.
12:51 mtompset And when I said zebra daemon... I meant the crontab for reindexing.
12:52 drojf joined #koha
12:52 mtompset okay... I just noticed some errors before the failure again... :(
12:53 mtompset ERROR 1452 (23000): Cannot add or update a child row: a foreign key constraint fails (`koha_library`.`issues`, CONSTRAINT `issues_ibfk_2` FOREIGN KEY (`itemnumber`) REFERENCES `items` (`itemnumber`) ON UPDATE CASCADE)
12:53 jcamins mtompset: it could be, I suppose, that the netbook is so underpowered that you can't use extended inserts.
12:53 mtompset no, this isn't on my netbook.
12:53 mtompset This is on a 8GB Ram, 25GB hard drive space VM on a real VM machine.
12:53 jcamins I always disable foreign key checks before loading data.
12:54 jcamins SET foreign_key_checks=0;

12:54 mtompset ERROR 1062 (23000): Duplicate entry '31751' for key 'PRIMARY'
12:54 jcamins You didn't empty the database prior to loading it.
12:54 mtompset Is that related to the foreign keys too?
12:55 jcamins No.
12:55 mtompset ... but the .sql has drop tables.
12:55 jcamins That's because source doesn't delete the data.
12:56 mtompset huh? the data still lies around even if the table is dropped initially?
12:56 jcamins No, source ignores drop statements, I think.
12:57 mtompset Oh wait... there's a "table items already exists"
12:57 mtompset Right.
12:57 mtompset okay... so the correct way to run the .sql is?
12:58 mtompset Perhaps the number of connections is exceeded and causes the server to die.
12:58 mtompset using source.
12:59 talljoy joined #koha

13:09 koyauni this is what Plesk did and I made a instruction for it

13:10 koyauni here what they said[…]637114#post637114
13:10 jcamins Excellent. :)
13:11 koyauni so it is not bad to get people with Plesk to consider Koha,
13:11 koyauni does koha have different Theme?
13:11 jcamins No.
13:12 jcamins There is a new theme being developed, but it's not included yet.
13:12 koyauni ok, how do I change koha logo with our university logo, it an easy way
13:12 jcamins oleonard's blog?
13:12 wahanui i think oleonard's blog is
13:13 jcamins ^^ there are instructions there, I think.
13:13 jcamins It's also in the manual.
13:15 koyauni thanks!

13:18 mtompset There is something limiting memory per process, I think.

13:56 eythian <-- related
13:58 mib_tpudto I have a silly UI tabs query! Specifically, on the screen there are 2 tabs (Checkouts and Holds). The div id is #checkouts and #reserves. However, I can't find where the js events for these lives!? Does anyone know?
13:58 jcamins lol
13:58 jcamins eythian: is that a real label?
13:58 eythian I don't know
13:58 Barrc1 put the lotion in the basket!
13:58 jcamins mib_tpudto: in $(document).ready.
13:59 mtompset how do I stop the zebra daemon in packages?
14:00 mib_tpudto jcamins: thanks - I thought I couldn't see it though - I will check again.
14:01 jcamins mib_tpudto: the code is in staff-global.js.
14:01 jcamins mtompset: koha-stop-zebra library
14:01 mib_tpudto I am running Koha 3.6, is that same?
14:01 jcamins mib_tpudto: I believe so. However...
14:01 jcamins first question?
14:01 wahanui "What are you trying to do?"  "What is the goal?" or "What problem are you experiencing?"
14:03 mib_tpudto jcamins: first question? If that to me?
14:03 mib_tpudto wahanui: Do you mean me?
14:03 wahanui i haven't a clue, mib_tpudto
14:03 jcamins mib_tpudto: yes.
14:03 jcamins mib_tpudto: wahanui is a bot. We use him to save typing. ;)
14:04 mib_tpudto sorry, I don't understand. What do you mean "First question"?
14:04 jcamins What are you trying to do? What is the goal? What problem are you experiencing?
14:04 mib_tpudto oh, sorry!
14:05 mib_tpudto jcamins: No proble as such (at all). I need to see how hard it might be to add another tab there, on that page, for filtered information.
14:05 jcamins mib_tpudto: in that case you are looking in the wrong place entirely.
14:05 jcamins You don't touch the javascript to add a new tab.
14:06 jcamins (unless you're doing something more complicated than simply adding a tab)
14:07 jcamins The tabs are configured in document.ready, but you can just add more tabs by adding <li>s.
14:08 mib_tpudto jcamins: Thanks, I did say it was a silly question! I was looking at the circulation template file and it seemd to have to divs (checkouts and reserves) so I though I'd have to add anohter!
14:08 jcamins You'll also need a div, for the contents of the tab.
14:09 jcamins I *strongly* urge you to add the tab with jQuery in intranetuserjs  $('#header_search ul').append('[html...]') rather than editing the templates by hand.
14:09 wizzyrea ^^^ this, so much this
14:09 wizzyrea also, hi
14:10 jcamins If you modify the templates, you're in for a world of pain when you want to upgrade.
14:10 mib_tpudto super - well worth coming here just for that alone!
14:11 mib_tpudto so, into the intranetusers js file I go!
14:11 jcamins It's not a file.
14:11 jcamins It's a syspref.
14:11 wizzyrea intranetuserjs is in the system preferences ;)
14:11 jcamins :)
14:11 LBA joined #koha

14:11 mtompset 8GB... but something is eating all the memory.
14:12 jcamins mtompset: Apache?
14:12 wahanui Apache is the ram hog
14:12 mtompset Nope.
14:12 mtompset I stopped apache.
14:12 jcamins I couldn't have said it better myself.
14:12 mib_tpudto thanks wizzyrea and jcamins!
14:12 mtompset I stopped mysql.
14:12 mtompset Still hogged.
14:15 mtompset could the amount of memory in my VM be misreported?
14:17 mtompset Oh well... looks like a next week problem.
14:17 mtompset I need to get to bed on time tonight.
14:18 mtompset It was so much simpler setting packages up on my own local VM.
14:18 drojf who needs sleep when he can have mysql fun?
14:22 * jcamins yawns, waits for Zebra to finish reindexing.
14:23 asaurat does someone still use the "MARC bibliographic framework test" ? looks like it's not regularly maintained (nor easy to maintain) and end up confusing librarians ?
14:23 drojf asaurat: what is confusing about it?
14:24 asaurat looks like it gives error where it shouldn't ?
14:24 jcamins asaurat: I don't think there have been any changes required in it since 3.2?
14:24 jcamins If you get an error, you have a problem.
14:24 jcamins Or a potential problem.
14:24 asaurat ok, I'll check again, thanks
14:27 mtompset Have a great day (24 hour period) everyone.

15:04 jcamins *
15:04 jcamins *?
15:04 jcamins Wow. Punctuation issues.
15:04 gmcharlt jcamins: you're just being nice and not greedy ;)
15:05 jcamins lol
15:06 * gmcharlt muses that that might just be my geekiest joke yet
15:06 jcamins I think so.
15:07 kf lol
15:07 kf and I got it!
15:09 eythian neeeeerd!

15:11 * druthb chuckles at wahanui
15:11 jcamins Oak: "not greedy"
15:11 Oak thank you jcamins :)
15:12 kf druthb: of course you'd love that
15:12 kf everyone here likes torturing me:)
15:12 Oak that we do.
15:12 druthb ^.^
15:12 kf who has friends like that...
15:13 Oak it's because we like you too much.
15:14 * Oak was hoping he'll be rewarded with cookies, but no :(
15:15 * drojf offers cookies for everyone
15:15 drojf just fixed a problem in my import script, woohoo
15:15 Oak hi5
15:15 drojf *5*

15:16 kf and leaves for the weekend :)
15:16 kf bye all
15:16 kf left #koha
15:16 * Oak grabs it and runs away
15:18 drojf if you want to check if a (numeric) value is less or equal than another and accidentally write 'le' instead of '<'  you're gonna have a bad time
15:21 nengard jcamins around?
15:21 jcamins nengard: sort of, kind of, maybe.
15:21 nengard I have something weird that happened and I can't tell you why or when :)
15:21 jcamins Uhhh...
15:21 jcamins this is going to be quite a story, isn't it?
15:21 jcamins :)
15:21 wizzyrea sounds like the BEST PROBLEM EVER
15:21 nengard I ran the authority linker a while ago and it showed that my name had 5 records associated with it
15:21 nengard today it says 0
15:21 nengard so I re-ran the linker and it's not linking my name authority to the bibs
15:21 nengard ideas where I could possibly look?
15:22 nengard I do run the authority reindexer when i start up my VM ? if that has anything to do with it
15:22 Joubu good bye ++
15:23 wizzyrea bye joubu
15:23 jcamins There are a few possible problems. The first thing to check is whether the headings are linked.
15:23 jcamins The number of bibs linked is incredibly brittle.
15:23 nengard okay - so check the bib records themselves?
15:23 jcamins Right.
15:24 jcamins My guess is that you have multiple records for your name, or changed the authority record.
15:24 jcamins (noticed a typo or the like)
15:25 nengard okay, so my name is there but the $9 is not filled in
15:25 nengard and i know it was
15:25 nengard cause i went through all of them and made sure it was there and if it wasn't i put it there
15:26 jcamins Oh, you manually entered it?
15:26 nengard well i did the 'choose'
15:26 nengard searched for the authority and linked it
15:26 jcamins Ah.
15:26 nengard for those that weren't linked, but there were some linked, and now there are none
15:26 nengard I didn't touch them all
15:26 jcamins What LinkerModule do you have selected?
15:31 nengard hang on .. got called away
15:31 nengard checking now
15:31 nengard 'Default'
15:34 jcamins That will only work if there's only one authority that matches. I'd suspect you had BiblioAddsAuthorities on back in the dark ages.
15:34 druthb left #koha
15:35 jcamins Switch to FirstMatch.
15:36 nengard okey dokey
15:36 nengard trying again
15:36 nengard and yes I did have that pref set
15:36 jcamins Everyone sensible did.
15:36 nengard :)
15:36 jcamins The system was unusable otherwise.
15:37 nengard i can't wait for the merge authorities feature :)
15:37 nengard so I can clean up the mess I have cause of that
15:37 jcamins Before rerunning the linker, confirm that you can search both bibs and authorities.
15:39 * jcamins has to go to a wedding now, but if you set the sysprefs appropriately (on the bug are a list of possible configurations for testing), you'll probably find it works as desired.
15:42 asaurat left #koha
15:44 Oak jcamins++
15:45 nengard @later tell jcamins thanks for the tip, but i reran the linker with the same results - very strange
15:45 huginn nengard: The operation succeeded.
