03:00 mtompset Is there a reason the ids don't align between bootstrap and prog?
03:00 mtj wow!, have people seen this Koha theme… ->
03:00 mtj favourite Koha ever :)
03:00 mtj heya mtompset
03:00 wahanui rumour has it mtompset is catching up in the non-coding aspects of his ministry
03:01 mtompset Greetings, mtj. :)
03:02 mtj mtompset, i thinks they should align always… prolly a little bug there
03:02 rambuten joined #koha
03:03 eythian why would they need to line up?
03:04 eythian there's no real reason they would have to, and different designs can mean it doesn't make sense.
03:04 jcamins They should not align.
03:04 jcamins If they were the same, that would be bad.
03:04 * jcamins leaves.
03:09 mtj hmm, really?  i kinda assumed that element ids might be crucial to functionality in koha
03:09 * jcamins sticks his head back in.
03:10 eythian they're only useful for CSS and JS, and as they're both particular to the theme, the koha code shouldn't care.
03:10 eythian with the exception of opacuser* type stuff
03:10 jcamins mtj: think about it. If the IDs were the same, existing customizations would just break the OPAC.
03:10 eythian but that should be made to fit your theme anyway.
03:10 jcamins Anything that isn't organized the same way really shouldn't be named the same way.
03:11 mtj ps: i'm very happy to be corrected here :p
03:11 jcamins Proof of that can be seen in the #login id that was given to two entirely different controls at one point.
03:12 jcamins If you try out switching themes and keeping the same ID after rearranging, you'll see what I mean.
03:17 mtj ok, thanks for the info guys - i'll take a look, and prove this to myself :)
03:17 wizzyrea theoretically, you should pick one at install time, and theme on top of that.
03:17 wizzyrea the only problem comes when you change
03:18 wizzyrea and we're talking about nuking the other two anyway.
03:18 eythian I prefer the idea of making one default and transitioning to that. If you make it too easy for people to pick the wrong one, you'll have to delay deprecating it.
03:18 wizzyrea ^^^ so much this
03:21 wizzyrea nuking perhaps was a strong word.
03:21 wizzyrea gently wishing them well and highly suggesting that people not use them.
03:21 eythian actually, I meant removing rather than deprecating.
03:22 mtompset well, if they aren't in the list, you kind of have to do magic in MySQL and in the appropriate directories to get them back.
03:22 wizzyrea kek.
03:22 eythian Just the directories, mysql doesn't care.
03:22 mtompset oh right... the choices are in the pref file.
03:22 wizzyrea you shouldn't be using that theme, you should be customizing on top of the default theme.
03:23 wizzyrea yes, transition, I get that.
03:23 eythian no, I think that the options are worked out by looking at the directories. Not 100% sure though.
03:23 eythian they are for languages.
03:23 wizzyrea ^^ pretty sure this is true
03:23 wizzyrea plonking another theme in there gives the option
03:24 mtompset anyways... looks like I'll be wrestling CSS to get the color-scheme back to the browns we are looking for.
03:24 wizzyrea and it's good if  your existing customisations break the opac, that means you know there are things to fix.
03:24 eythian you've got two full releases to do it in, anyway :)
03:24 wizzyrea ^^^
03:25 mtompset actually, less, because I have to insert a custom patch.
03:26 mtompset but yes, technically two.
03:26 * eythian uploads new packages
03:26 wizzyrea theming is best done with css included with opaccolor
03:27 wizzyrea and not touching the default styles
03:27 mtompset .actions a.hold {
03:27 mtompset background-image: url("../images/sprite.png");
03:27 wizzyrea sure that could go in opaccolor
03:27 * eythian has uploaded new packages
03:27 wizzyrea whee!
03:27 eythian probably should do a master build too
03:27 mtompset Can someone confirm if that sprite.png file still exists?
03:27 mtompset This is from bootstrap, as far as I can tell.
03:27 eythian $ find -name sprite.png
03:27 eythian ./koha-tmpl/intranet-tmpl/​prog/en/lib/yui/sprite.png
03:27 eythian ./koha-tmpl/opac-tmpl/ccsr/images/sprite.png
03:27 eythian ./koha-tmpl/opac-tmpl/prog/images/sprite.png
03:28 eythian that's 3.12.06
03:29 mtompset So, why is ../images/sprite.png failing to load in firebug?
03:29 mtompset Oh... now it loads.
03:29 mtompset GRRR...
03:40 Joels68 joined #koha
03:42 Joels68 Hello. Anyone here?
03:43 eythian There are a few people here.
03:43 eythian Hello.
03:46 Joels68 I'm an IRC newbie and just checking in to say hello. I'm from the US. Just attended KohaCon
03:52 Joels68 I'm Joel from the Plum Creek Library System In Minnesota, current Koha user.
03:52 wizzyrea cool hi joel :)
03:52 * mtj waves to joel and wiz
03:53 Joels68 Hello. I met your coworkers from NEKLS at the con.
03:53 wizzyrea sup mtj :)
03:53 wizzyrea ah yea, good folks those.
03:53 wizzyrea my old coworkers ;) and one of my new ones too probably
03:54 mtj me so jealous of the all the KohaCon attendees!
03:54 Joels68 I'm looking to become more active in the community.
03:54 Joels68 It was a great time. Met a lot of great Koha people.
03:54 mtj Joels68, how long has plum-creek been running koha?
03:55 Joels68 Since March 2012.
03:55 mtj ok ok :)
03:56 Joels68 Love the system and it keeps getting better every day.
03:59 Joels68 mtj from Australia?
04:00 Joels68 I recognize wiz but haven't met you yet.
04:01 mtj close-ish… wgtn, nz
04:01 Joels68 OK.
04:03 mtj sorry, wellington - new zealand :)
04:04 Joels68 S'OK. We use wgtn here for Worthington, MN USA, where I'm at.
04:04 Joels68 I kinda guessed it was wellington.
04:07 mtj slightly off-topic but…. does reno do crazy vegas style dinner buffets?
04:07 mtj i wanna know what people were eating at kohacon13 :p
04:07 Joels68 Question about IRC. Right now I'm using Firefox to connect but I have an IRC client that asks for passwords and such to connect. Are these needed?
04:08 mtj no, not needed - but an option
04:08 Joels68 Reno is toned down a bit from vegas. The hotel had a decent buffet but we took in some local fare too.
04:08 mtj you can register your 'nickname', with a password, on an irc server
04:09 mtj so, if you like ''joel68' - and want to spot someone from stealling it…. register your nick with a password
04:10 mtj (most people often cant be bothered, to do this step)
04:11 eythian @wunder nzwn
04:11 huginn eythian: The current temperature in Wellington, New Zealand is 15.0°C (5:00 PM NZDT on October 29, 2013). Conditions: Clear. Humidity: 51%. Dew Point: 5.0°C. Pressure: 29.98 in 1015 hPa (Steady).
04:11 mtj Joels68, yeah, always important to try the local fare :)
04:12 Joels68 Pirates Pizza was popular. Enormous pizzas.
04:13 Joels68 Went there with Chris C, Martin, and Cait.

04:17 Oak hello mtompset :)
04:17 * Oak waves
04:17 mtompset well, made some progress on styling under bootstrap. :)
04:18 mtompset Now, to go catch some sleep.
04:18 Oak ah sleep is good

04:47 tm joined #koha
04:48 tm Hi there.
04:49 eythian hi
04:49 wahanui niihau, eythian
04:50 tm I've got a update problem. Why is it a book that has been catalogue doesn't show up in the search result? But if I generate a report it is there.
04:53 eythian tm: by default the search indicies are updated every 5 minutes, are you trying too fast?
04:53 vinz3g joined #koha
04:55 vinz3g hi,
04:55 tm Nope. waited for days and it is still the same. Is there any log I can check for index updating?
04:55 vinz3g as I can enable my koha to be a public Z39.50 server
04:55 vinz3g ?
04:55 eythian tm: well, it should be run from cron. How do you have Koha installed, packages or some other method?
04:56 eythian vinz3g: you can I believe. I think you'll need to edit koha-conf.xml to do it, but I don't know the details.
04:57 vinz3g If I'm working on it, but really have not found much new and I'm really confused about what parameters edit
04:58 eythian[…]s_a_Z39.50_server <-- vinz3g, have you seen this?
05:00 vinz3g eythian: if and returns me the following: connecting errors = System (lower-layer) error: Connection refused
05:01 eythian vinz3g: I don't know sorry, it might be worth posting to the mailing list and including your configs (without passwords :) and log messages.
05:01 vinz3g ok, thanks
05:16 vinz3g hi, I need restart zebra
05:16 vinz3g thanks

09:06 kivilahtio Hi I have a git-related problem. I have a branch ItemFilter, where I have the following commits, bug_11129 -> bug_6385 -> bug_11157. Each commit has a tag named patch11129, patch6385, patch11157. I realized bug_6385 has a bug and needs to be modified. So i ran 'git reset --hard patch6385', modified code, ran 'git commit --amend', now I need to get back to previous HEAD by running 'git reset --hard patch11157'. Now I am at my original HEAD, but
09:06 kivilahtio the changes to bug_6385 are not present. Is there something wrong with my git-workflow? How do you solve these issues?
09:07 kivilahtio I guess this queestion gets asked a lot.
09:13 kivilahtio maybe using git rebase like this link suggests[…]-specified-commit
09:14 kivilahtio lol I cant I borke something
09:14 kivilahtio git is bad boy
09:20 agnet joined #koha
09:20 agnet hi all
09:20 agnet I am trying to install koha
09:21 agnet with packages as it was suggested to me yesterday
09:21 agnet and I am having some problems with this line
09:21 agnet wget -O- | sudo apt-key add -
09:21 agnet the error is this
09:21 agnet --2013-10-29 10:19:50-- Resolving ( Connecting to (||:80... ERROR: This command can only be used by root. connected. HTTP request sent, awaiting response... 200 OK Length: 51879 (51K) [text/plain] Saving to: `STDOUT'   0% [                                       ] 0

09:22 agnet can you help me
09:22 agnet ?
09:22 ashimema is your user in the sudo group on your system?
09:23 agnet meaning
09:23 agnet ??
09:23 agnet how can I check
09:23 agnet how can I check
09:24 agnet ?
09:24 ashimema no need to repeat yourself agnet ;)
09:24 agnet thats a mistake
09:24 agnet sorry
09:24 agnet new laptop
09:24 agnet :(
09:25 ashimema cat /etc/group
09:25 ashimema you user should be appended to the line starting with 'sudo'
09:25 agnet root:x:0:
09:26 ashimema somthig like 'sudo:x:27:koha'
09:26 ashimema my user is koha (in this case)
09:26 ashimema that's assuming you have sudo installed.. I think it's installed by defautl in ubuntu (are you still using ubuntu.. did you update it since yesrday?)
09:28 magnuse to me it looks like that command never gets as far as the sudo part...
09:28 agnet thanks for your help
09:28 agnet yes I have updated to 12.01
09:28 agnet can't update it to 13
09:28 ashimema 12.04 you mean ;)
09:28 agnet yes sorry :)
09:28 ashimema 12.04 is perfect.. that's the LTS version and is best supported by koha
09:29 agnet ok.. thanks
09:29 agnet that line now worked thanks for your help
09:29 ashimema great.. glad I could help :)
09:29 agnet :)
09:30 ashimema magnus: I'de have agreed with you, but I couldn't think of any reason wget would be locked down to root by default.
09:30 agnet When I ran sudo apt-get update
09:30 agnet this message came up
09:30 agnet W: Failed to fetch http://debian.koha-community.o[…]ary-i386/Packages  404  Not Found  E: Some index files failed to download. They have been ignored, or old ones used instead.
09:31 agnet is this good
09:31 agnet can I continue on installing
09:31 ashimema that's a tad odd.
09:31 agnet ??
09:31 ashimema one second, just going to go through my notes.. it's a while since I installed on ubuntu
09:31 kivilahtio agnet: Are your apt-get sources.list directives ok for the Koha packages
09:32 agnet ashima: thanks
09:32 busla joined #koha
09:32 agnet kivilahtio: can you be more specific
09:32 kivilahtio agnet: /etc/apt/sources.list
09:32 kivilahtio agnet: somewhere in your Ubuntu installation instructions you need to define the Koha packages url
09:33 kivilahtio agnet: You should double check that
09:33 agnet etc apt sources list no such file or directory
09:33 kivilahtio agnet: does your apt-get work? If you type 'sudo apt-get install lynx' does it work?
09:33 agnet I am following step by step from this link
09:33 agnet[…]ubuntu_-_packages
09:34 agnet yes that line works fine
09:34 kivilahtio agnet you hav a typo
09:34 agnet where
09:34 agnet ?
09:34 kivilahtio agnet: did you copy paste this directive?
09:34 kivilahtio echo deb squeeze main | sudo tee /etc/apt/sources.list.d/koha.list
09:35 agnet yes
09:35 kivilahtio hmm
09:35 agnet that is what I copied
09:35 kivilahtio the url you posted says squeze, while this I posted from to link, says squeeze
09:35 kivilahtio I dont know how packages work but you could try with two ee's
09:36 agnet thanks worked
09:36 agnet :)
09:36 petter joined #koha
09:36 agnet for a small mistake
09:36 agnet haha
09:37 petter joined #koha
09:37 * magnuse waves to petter
09:38 petter hi all
09:38 agnet now when I come to the Intial Configuration Part
09:38 kivilahtio agnet: You need to slow down and take your time. When I started with linux I was just bashing around, then I was bashing my head to a wall. You need to read verrry carefully and understand what you are doing
09:39 agnet what do I need to enter the domain etc
09:39 agnet what should I do
09:39 kivilahtio agnet: Don't repeat my mistakes. Understand what you are doing, don't just settle for apt-get install, figure out what really happens. Otherwise you will have hard time all the time
09:40 agnet yes I know kivilahtio. I am not a linux person I am a Microsoft person
09:40 agnet and this is just for once
09:40 kivilahtio agnet: And the transition is a pain in the ass
09:40 agnet yea I know... I don't like it very much... Thankfully I will do this once
09:40 agnet :)
09:40 kivilahtio :)
09:41 kivilahtio just copy paste
09:41 kivilahtio agnet should work
09:41 kivilahtio tho you can access the koha server only from the local machine unless you do some dns stuff
09:41 kivilahtio agnet: you need to know apache2 to modify this
09:42 kivilahtio agnet: mainly the ports and servernames and prefix/suffix
09:42 agnet Koha will be installed locally only and then I connect the laptop to the router and forward port to it
09:42 agnet so it is accessed from outside
09:42 kivilahtio agnet: you need to call the koha server with the serverName, not ip
09:43 agnet that is why I
09:43 agnet did not used packages
09:43 kivilahtio agnet: you can modify the apache2 configs just the same
09:43 agnet as I don't know what I need to do from now on
09:43 kivilahtio well, that is a apache2-problem
09:44 agnet can you tell me step by step how to do this please
09:44 agnet ?
09:45 kivilahtio I can tell you that you need to change the ports, say 80 for OPAC and 8080 for intranet. Then you need to listen to those ports from apache2. Then you need to modify the /etc/apache2/sites-enabled/your-koha-configuration to allow access to intranet and OPAC from all IP's
09:46 kivilahtio and make sure the access is not limited ny the serverName directive
09:46 agnet and for the Domain Name??
09:46 agnet it is on a local machine
09:46 kivilahtio I don't know you intranet topography back where you come from
09:47 agnet so I don't have a domain
09:47 kivilahtio then leave it empty
09:47 agnet ok tks
09:47 kivilahtio agnet: take care!
09:47 agnet and for the intrasuffix
09:47 agnet ?
09:47 agnet will leave it as it is
09:47 kivilahtio try
09:47 agnet ?
09:48 kivilahtio I said you can get it running
09:48 kivilahtio with the defaults
09:48 kivilahtio so get it running, tweak from there
09:48 agnet ok thanks
09:51 kivilahtio agnet: Also you can access many Koha test server around the world. Not sure why you need to install Koha, but if you are just testing it is easier to just use a demo server and a manual
09:51 agnet I just need Koha to be able to cataloge and then export them and import them in another system
09:52 kivilahtio agnet: maybe you could just buy that service?
09:53 kivilahtio agnet: there are some configuration that needs to be done to be able to catalog and esp. import your data
09:53 kivilahtio anget, especialyl if it is a short-term issue for you
09:54 kivilahtio and you don't need linux experience in your organization
09:57 agnet can't do that.. My organization where I work with.. need Koha to catalog books/digital and then when ready... they export the data by exporting them
09:57 agnet and then import them to another system..
09:57 agnet aleph
09:59 agnet I have another problem
09:59 agnet System maintenance The Koha online catalog is offline for system maintenance. We'll be back soon! If you have any questions, please contact the site administrator
09:59 agnet getting this message

10:02 agnet I did those steps
10:02 agnet and no error
10:04 agnet someone?
10:04 wahanui someone is, like, missing
10:05 magnuse agnet: you get that error from the opac as long as you have not run the web installer, which you access at the address for the intranet
10:06 magnuse so try http://localhost:8080/
10:06 magnuse if you used 8080 for the intranet port
10:08 agnet and how can I do the web installer
10:08 agnet which command to run
10:08 agnet ?
10:08 laurence joined #koha
10:10 agnet ??
10:12 agnet magnuse: which command please?
10:15 agnet as I need it please
10:15 magnuse you need to access the intranet in a web browser
10:15 magnuse so try http://localhost:8080/
10:16 agnet that worked
10:16 agnet and then
10:16 agnet ?
10:17 magnuse you need to log in there and answer the questions/options
10:18 agnet ok thanks
10:20 agnet it worked
10:21 agnet last question
10:21 agnet is there a way to change the default password please
10:24 magnuse leave the password you used now as it is
10:25 magnuse the first thing you should do is create a new user and give it superlibrarian rights
10:25 magnuse then you should never use the "database user" again
10:26 agnet ok thanls
10:26 agnet thanks

11:43 kivilahtio When was the total Koha rewrite due ? ;)
11:43 kivilahtio just looking at :)
11:53 meliss joined #koha
12:07 BigRig joined #koha
12:08 petter I don't think total rewrite will ever happen
12:09 petter Nor is it necessarily a good idea
12:09 petter[…]og0000000069.html
12:12 petter It’s harder to read code than to write it.
12:12 kivilahtio wow a good article and true, but you should take a look at :)
12:13 kivilahtio I mean why are all items pulled from DB many times and copied over from array to array
12:13 petter hehe
12:13 petter well, well
12:14 kivilahtio or even worse, iterated to compare some itemnumber to other
12:14 petter right
12:14 petter While rewrite might be a bad idea - refactoring is maybe a better one
12:14 kivilahtio petter: I am not saing the whole Koha should be overwritten, but some parts definetely have been tinkered way past bedtime
12:14 petter I mean
12:14 kivilahtio petter ++
12:14 petter one should continously refactor
12:14 petter sure
12:14 kivilahtio but this is a very good article thanks for that!
12:15 petter Yea, its a famous article, I saw it referenced many places
12:16 petter And I think Koha is slowly but surely is getting refactored from old prodedural code into more object oriented style
12:16 petter Just look at the differences from directory C4 and Koha
12:18 kivilahtio petter: yup
12:18 petter oh, indeed looks messy!
12:18 kivilahtio yup :)
12:37 kf petter: it's because holds are insane...
12:37 kf my theory at least :)
12:38 petter yes, reality is messy, so sooner or later code becomes messy too
12:38 petter :)
12:45 Dyrcona joined #koha
12:46 kivilahtio kf: I agree that holds are messy
12:47 kivilahtio kf: And we should even have more complex holds
12:47 kivilahtio kf: Like being able to place substitute holds, So we can hold 4 biblios/items, and if any of them is reserved, then other holds are nulled
12:50 Dyrcona kivilahtio: Does this mean I'll have to go to Koha conferences to get salmiakki in the future? :p
12:54 reiveune1 joined #koha
12:55 alex_a_ joined #koha
12:57 kivilahtio Dyrcona: wow, no idea. We are working on that. After two weeks we have a meeting in Oulu where we decide should we choose Koha or Evergreen or Nothing
12:57 * Dyrcona votes for Nothing. :p
12:57 kivilahtio Dyrcona: But I have a gut feeling I am not participating to library conferences any time soon ;(
12:58 kivilahtio Dyrcona: So you might have to import your salmiakki from somewhere else
12:58 Dyrcona :)
12:58 kivilahtio Dyrcona: but the way things are progressing I am veering towards Nothing as well
12:59 Dyrcona kivilahtio: Trouble is all library software is pretty much equally bad, and the commercial products are often worse.
12:59 kivilahtio Dyrcona: yeah I have noticed
12:59 Dyrcona kivilahtio: I put the blame on the crap "standards" that library software must adhere to.
13:00 kivilahtio Dyrcona: I am not so sure the issue is with MARC or SIP2
13:00 kivilahtio Dyrcona: The requirements are just really complex
13:00 kivilahtio Dyrcona: Business logic is crazy, especially when it comes to holds and circulation
13:01 kivilahtio Dyrcona: I didn't know there are so many ways to place a hold
13:01 Dyrcona kivilahtio: There's that, too. We often hear contradictory things from our consortium members regarding requirements.
13:02 kivilahtio Dyrcona: wow that's hard. And try to make compromises :)
13:03 Dyrcona kivilahtio: Yeah. "We want it simple, except for this and this and that, oh and that thing, too." :)
13:04 * Dyrcona wonders how complicated SAP is, 'cause we're basically writing SAP for libraries.
13:04 magnuse "an ils is just a database, with crazy rules"
13:05 Dyrcona magnuse: No. It must also be a discovery platform, an accounting system, inventory control, etc.
13:06 magnuse Dyrcona: yes, a database that is bent to do all those things
13:06 kivilahtio Dyrcona: And this library shouldnt be able to modify this librarys items but it should be able to modify the patrons. This library and this library MUST be able to float material together but not with any other library
13:06 kivilahtio lol my colleagues no longer even say bye bye to me when they leave office
13:06 kivilahtio it's this bad here :)
13:07 kivilahtio I guess I am the bad boy now by saying that we arent making progress with Evergreen and will fail our deadlines if we don't do something
13:07 kivilahtio anyway, back to :)
13:08 kivilahtio Dyrcona: btw, what is SAP?
13:08 Dyrcona
13:09 Dyrcona The be-all, do-all software for business, an ILS for industry.
13:10 Dyrcona "You don't modify SAP to suit your business. You modify your business to suit SAP."
13:10 magnuse more modularity would probably be good
13:11 edveal joined #koha
13:12 kivilahtio magnuse: totally, atleast data accessors should be centralized
13:12 kivilahtio magnuse: Currently there are many ways to pull different kinds of Items from the DB
13:12 kivilahtio that is confusing
13:13 Dyrcona And here I thought options were good. Choice is good, right? ;)
13:13 magnuse :-)
13:13 kivilahtio Dyrcona: Just extended GetItemsInfo() to support custom filters, like fromDate or volume or issue. But because Items data is accessed from so many different places, my filter is only good for this one access method
13:14 kivilahtio This is a BIG problme
13:14 sophie_m joined #koha
13:22 magnuse i wonder if DBIx::Class will help make that sort of thing better
13:24 khall magnuse: I do believe we should be able to add custom column filters using dbic
13:24 khall[…]/FilterColumn.pod
13:25 kivilahtio Hibernate for Perl?
13:25 NateC joined #koha
13:25 khall basically
13:27 magnuse i was thinking of centralizing data access methods, but i suspect there is a world of potential hiding in dbic
13:27 kivilahtio I smell trouble :) The great thing with Koha's random and rancid SQL accessors is the ease of understanding the code
13:28 kivilahtio using a DB abstraction layer will increase the learning curve
13:28 kivilahtio but regarding how easy it is to get into Koha, I think it might be a great idea
13:29 magnuse :-)
13:29 kivilahtio With evergreen I hated it's db-abstraction layer. That was because I never really understood it.
13:29 kivilahtio But here we actually have a documented Perl library to do it
13:30 kivilahtio reagrdless DBIx is the way to go
13:30 kivilahtio if we ever ge tto vote or something

13:40 kivilahtio oleonard: regarding bug_11129
13:40 kivilahtio jcamins: just kidding, don't shoot me
13:41 kivilahtio oleonard: You have seen this, but with the "clear filter"-button, do I really need to use a plain link?
13:42 oleonard I think it would be more consistent with the OPAC in general to use plain links for both, perhaps with accompanying icons from (or added to) the sprite
13:42 kivilahtio oleonard: how do you suggest i use those icons?
13:43 kivilahtio in this case you are prolly taking about the arrow down icon?
13:45 oleonard See search results or lists for examples of how plain links are styled with icons to help clarify their purpose
13:46 oleonard the "more searches" menu on the detail page shows an example of the arrow indicator being used
13:47 oleonard I'm not the king of the OPAC, but I do have strong opinions. You're welcome to rally counter-opinions

13:53 kivilahtio rambutan: But I maye be able to answer some questions, but I feel like Dyrcona is a better Evergreen dev.
13:53 rambutan no, it's just that I read something about EG moving to a browser based interface, and I was wondering about the status of that
13:53 rambutan no big deal
13:54 kivilahtio rambutan: that's true, and a big relief for the community. Their staff client is based on some ancient Xulrunner they cannot migrate from. This has been a huge handicap for Evergreen. Did you get the eta for the transition?
13:54 * oleonard suspects gmcharlt would have knowledge of this
13:55 rambutan no, I just skimmed some article, and don't recall any details
13:55 jcamins As would jeff, I bet.
13:55 tcohen joined #koha
13:55 magnuse hola tcohen
13:55 rambutan actullly gmcharlt would probably know, I'll ask him sometime
13:56 kivilahtio rambutan: I think funding is being raised to do the migration to web based.
13:56 rambutan ic
13:56 Dyrcona rambutan: The browser based interface is not yet a complete proof of concept, but some groups are gathering funds to begin the exploratory work.
13:56 kivilahtio rambutan: Too bad it won't help our migration deadlines
13:56 rambutan is there currently a linux client for EG?
13:57 kivilahtio you need to compile it
13:57 jcamins Yeah, the staff client is XULrunner based.
13:57 kivilahtio first you install the EG server (good luck with that) then you try to figure out how the hell you compile the staff client
13:57 kivilahtio for linux
13:57 Dyrcona Pfft.... It's cake.
13:57 oleonard I have enough trouble getting Chatzilla running under XULrunner ;)
13:58 kivilahtio but the documentation for that is pretty good.[…]_the_staff_client
14:01 kivilahtio phew killed the and friends
14:02 oleonard ?
14:03 kivilahtio oleonard: well not literally, just.. you know.. solved my issues with them ;)
14:03 kivilahtio so don't go hollering to NSA wil lyou?
14:03 magnuse too late to worry about that, probably
14:03 kivilahtio magnuse: :) so true
14:04 gmcharlt re Evergreen replacing its staff client -- no firm ETA as yet, but various parties, including Equinox, are working on various projects to gather funding and do more prototyping
14:04 gmcharlt needless to say, it woudl be a rather large change, akin to the effort of fully implementing the various search, indexing, and multi-metadata projects folks are interested in for Koha

14:14 tcohen druthb:
14:15 druthb I've never been a AAA member before.  A lot of their services are things that an extremely self-reliant person (like me) will just do for themselves.  But the member discounts on this and that will be nice.

16:44 lettucebowling Recommended upgrade path from  Should I just build a new vm with Debian and import the MySQL DB? I've been tasked with upgrading this, it was a vmware version from khall a few years back.
16:44 kf lettucebowling: switching to packages would be good I think
16:44 kf if you are updating from 3.0 you will also have to run a script, but the packages should tell you that I think
16:45 kf tcohen: do you know if they will?
16:45 lettucebowling I agree with that on the packages
16:45 tcohen yes
16:45 tcohen koha-upgrade-to-3.4 instancename
16:46 lettucebowling tcohen: assuming I've followed all the steps on the wiki for Debian, are you referring to a perl script that does the db upgrade?
16:47 tcohen there are two upgrade scripts
16:47 tcohen koha-upgrade-schema (which is triggered automagically on each upgrade)
16:48 tcohen koha-upgrade-to-3.4 which you'll need to run by yourself once you load your old DB
16:48 lettucebowling tcohen: got it.
16:48 tcohen the steps would be
16:48 tcohen 1) clean packages install
16:48 tcohen 2) create a new instance called whatever you want
16:48 tcohen drop the database it created (in mysql)
16:49 tcohen 4)  recreate the database empty this time
16:49 tcohen 5) load your old 3.0.x db into it
16:49 tcohen 6) run koha-upgrade-schema instancename

18:17 rangi morning
18:18 druthb hiya, rangi. :)
18:19 rangi heya druthb, hows texas?
18:23 oleonard Hi rangi
18:23 rangi hey oleonard
18:23 wahanui i heard oleonard was still here, if you just wish hard enough. or Koha's master UI designer
18:26 * oleonard is trying to upgrade Drupal 6 to Drupal 7, just because it's so much fun.
18:27 rangi hehe
18:27 rangi wait until 8 comes out, thats gonna break EVERYTHING
18:27 rangi on purpose
18:27 jcamins Apparently there are formats as bad as MARC:[…]oshopLoader.m#108
18:27 oleonard rangi: I know, I know!
18:27 rangi eew
18:27 rangi oleonard: drupalsouth is on soon
18:28 rangi
18:28 oleonard Shall I come and bellyache to everyone about upgrades?
18:28 rangi thats all i do
18:28 rangi and im not even on the drupal team
18:29 rangi i think we have 30 drupal developers now
18:30 oleonard I wish I spent enough time with Drupal to think in Drupal, but that would mean spending a little too much time with Drupal
18:30 rangi  <-- i think is still the biggest drupal site we've done
18:31 rangi  <-- that one too
18:31 rangi scmp is quite tricky with its lazy loading
18:31 oleonard Ugh, I should throw this whole site in the trash and code it by hand from scratch.
18:32 rangi heh
18:36 mtompset jcamins: That link... Hilarious. :)

18:36 cait rangi: what do you thnk about the postgres db schema - could it be removed?
18:37 rangi yep as could kohastructure.sql (but not yet)
18:37 rangi id leave it all for now
18:37 cait bug 11155
18:37 huginn Bug[…]_bug.cgi?id=11155 normal, P5 - low, ---, gmcharlt, RESOLVED WONTFIX, PostgreSQL schema contains syntax errors
18:37 rangi and once 3.14 is released
18:37 cait just pondering an answer here
18:37 cait and was not sure
18:38 rangi we could start tidying up
18:38 cait but if someone wanted to submit a patch?
18:38 rangi we'd have to make the installer use the schema deploy
18:38 rangi yep a patch ot remove it wouldnt hurt
18:38 rangi basically we want to get to just installer/data
18:38 rangi no mysql or postgres
18:39 rangi and the schema is the dbix::class schema
18:44 gmcharlt and either DBMS-independent SQL for the seed data, or possibly CSV or the like
18:44 rangi yep
18:44 gmcharlt there will probably have to be hooks for DBMS-dependent follow-up scripts -- e.g., to set the storage engine for select tables
18:45 rangi id imagine changing the installer to create teh db from the schema would be first step
18:45 rangi then remove both of hte kohastructure.sql files
18:45 rangi heh i can not type the
18:45 rangi then the data as the next step
18:45 gmcharlt rangi: only three more possibilities to go!
18:45 rangi :)
18:46 mtompset There will still be back-end connection information in the koha-conf.xml file though, right?
18:47 mtompset i.e. once connected, everything is agnostic.
18:49 cait gmcharlt: rangi - would one of you comment on the bug then? ;)

18:55 huginn Bug[…]w_bug.cgi?id=9011 enhancement, P5 - low, ---, kyle, In Discussion , Add the ability to store the last patron to return an item
18:55 dbs cait++ rangi++ gmcharlt++
18:56 JesseM is this '9011' getting pushed in to 3.14?
18:56 oleonard Not if it's "In Discussion" JesseM
18:56 gmcharlt JesseM: no, that's rather unlikely at this point
18:57 JesseM thanks I was just wondering
18:59 cait hi dbs
18:59 rangi seems like a good feature tho, be nice to get it in 3.16
19:00 rangi dbs: you should be able to deploy a postgres db from the schema in master now .. however i havent tried in a long time :)
19:00 rangi and it would have to be done by hand
19:01 rangi (not using the installer)
19:01 rangi however i plan to (with the help of bgkriegel) set up a postgres koha instance that runs all the unit tests for master in jenkins
19:02 rangi we have mysql and maria currently, i think adding postgres will help us catch a lot of the low hanging mysqlisms
19:02 gmcharlt at the moment, a case-insensitive collation would be a good idea if you make the attempt
19:02 rangi true
19:06 rangi i reckon next time we have a kohacon in the same continent as most of the evergreen developers we should try to organise a combined hackfest
19:07 rangi or even if oleonard organises the athens county hackfest, might be worth extending it for open source ils :)
19:08 rangi just dont tell sirsi dynix the location
19:08 druthb lol
19:08 rangi it would be dangerous to have all the open source ils devs in one place :-)
19:08 oleonard yeah that's what I'm thinking too--several Evergreen libraries in my neighborhood
19:08 rambutan When is the Athens County OpenSource ILS Fest?
19:09 oleonard Whenever it gets organized
19:09 rangi :)
19:10 druthb c'mon, oleonard, get it together!
19:10 druthb doooo eeeeet
19:10 rambutan February 2014 you say? That works. Cheap airfares then.
19:10 tcohen joined #koha
19:10 oleonard No, gotta plan it precisely between now and KohaCon 2014
19:11 druthb hi, tcohen! :)
19:12 tcohen hi druthb
19:14 rangi ok time for the school run, bbiab
19:14 oleonard Uh oh, but what if Marseille hackfest falls precisely between now and KohaCon 2014?
19:14 cait i think marseille was plannd for march, but maybe possible to move?
19:15 cait i might be confused
19:15 cait it has been a long day
19:16 tcohen oleonard: KohaCon14 will be held at October 2014, days to be confirmed
19:16 dbs rangi: I was just doing "psql -f kohastructure.sql" to get an idea of the basic koha schema :)
19:16 jcamins oleonard: is that an actual requirement from YPOW?
19:16 cait tcohen: can't we have one earlier? :P
19:16 * cait is all for shortening the times between kohacons... ;)
19:17 * dbs would try to get to a combo hackfest
19:17 oleonard YPOW?
19:17 jcamins Your Place Of Work.
19:17 oleonard It just seems sensible. Spread out the Koha events for maximum coverage.
19:18 oleonard But if Marseille hackfest is in March then Athens hackfest should be halfway between now and March, and someone *else* has to have a hackfest halfway between March and KohaCon 2014.
19:18 oleonard Simple.
19:18 * cait might have burnt her dinner a bit
19:18 jcamins Heh. Makes sense.
19:25 cait will one of the hackfests develop a :)
19:26 jcamins Ooh, if it's a joint Koha/EG hackfest in Athens maybe we can persuade rfrasur to come!
19:26 oleonard rfrasur?
19:26 jcamins She's the director of an Evergreen library.
19:26 jcamins She's on the border of Ohio.
19:28 jcamins Other people may be nearby too, but she's the only person who mentioned being near Ohio.
19:29 tcohen oh, you're not talking about the Greek city
19:29 jcamins Hehe.
19:29 jcamins No.
19:30 oleonard No, my home town in Ohio tcohen :)
19:30 tcohen :-D
19:30 oleonard These are the Evergreen folks I know of: Not especially close, but in the same state at least
19:30 tcohen your blog is in my startup page, i'm not sure why i didn't associate that
19:31 * oleonard pities his poor neglected blog
19:34 gmcharlt oleonard: I suggest talking with RoganH on Freenode if you want to pursue a joint hackfest -- he's done the cat herding for getting the previous two EG hackfests organized
19:34 oleonard Okay, thanks

20:25 jcamins Yeah, AnythingSlider looks nice.

20:27 huginn Bug 8090: enhancement, P5 - low, ---, oleonard, NEW , item links should have descriptive text
20:32 rangi hmm dynix classic, im pretty sure that was made before i was born
20:33 tcohen is it possible to change itemtypes from mysql?
20:33 rangi hmm?
20:33 rangi the codes?
20:33 wahanui the codes are internal
20:33 jcamins tcohen: yeah, but you'll have to do a complete reindex.
20:34 rangi or just change what itemtype an item is?
20:34 tcohen is it buried inside the MARC records?
20:34 rangi items.itype
20:34 wahanui items.itype is, like, a column
20:34 jcamins Woohoo! AnythingSlider is GPL3.
20:34 rangi if you have item level itemtypes turned on
20:34 tcohen the latter rangi, but i see it is also in biblioitems.itemtype
20:34 jcamins Oh. LGPL3. That should still be compatible with AGPL3, though.
20:35 rangi tcohen if you have itemlevel itemtypes on as the syspref
20:35 rangi you only need worry about the items.itype column
20:36 tcohen ok, but it wouldnt let me delete an itemtype  because it is used somewhere (biblioitems)
20:36 rangi i thought you were just changing what itemtype and item is .. if you are changing the itemtypes themselves, then yes, you need to update them everywhere
20:37 tcohen i'm moving items from one itemtype to another
20:38 jcamins My recommendation is a script based on touch_all_biblios that changes the item type in biblioitems in the appropriate situations.
20:38 tcohen and would like to clean the itemtypes table
20:43 tcohen oops
20:44 tcohen "AU | AU" doesn't seem like a valid itemtype (AU is)
20:46 * tcohen loves when someone else made a mistake on migrating data
20:51 tcohen hmm, is it possible that there is no fk constrain on itemtype for the biblioitems table?
20:52 jcamins tcohen: that is correct, because it can be NULL.
20:53 tcohen if a library had biblio-level itemtypes, and switched to item-level, they might have NULL and NOT NULL?
20:54 tcohen but in any way those itemtype values should be present in the itemtypes table, right?
20:54 jcamins Right, and they ought to be.
21:08 gmcharlt nullable FKs are permitted, though
21:09 jcamins gmcharlt: then why don't we use them anywhere?
21:09 gmcharlt jcamins: the dead weight of history, presumably
21:09 jcamins Okay, so there's not a specific reason that you're aware of. I never wanted one until after I switched to MariaDB, so I figured it was a support issue.
21:10 jcamins wizzyrea: roasted cauliflower or cauliflower soup?
21:10 cait roasted.
21:10 mtompset first choice?
21:10 gmcharlt I can't speak to whether there were InnoDB bugs back in the day that made it problematic, but there's nothing stopping us now
21:10 cait you didn't ask me.. but...
