01:06 jcamins andrewma: no one really knows much about C4::Ris anymore.
01:27 andrewma Hi @jcamins. I see. I have corrected all the warnings except one and that relates to MARC data not stored in utf8. Is utf8 common everywhere now? I should I contact Galen Charlton directly, it interfaces with MARC::Charset::marc8_to_utf8 ?
01:28 jcamins I don't think I understand what the question is
01:29 jcamins You probably don't need to contact gmcharlt, though it looks like he may have done a little bit of work on it.
03:32 andrewma In, the sub charconv() is called in lots of places. It includes a call to marc8_to_utf8() but there are two things I note. 1) the marc8_to_utf8 is not imported via use and 2) it would only get called if a variable $uniout is set to "t". I have searched the entire source tree and find no $unuiout defined anywhere.
03:33 jcamins is actually another project that was copied into the Koha codebase at some point.
03:35 jcamins Which is why it feels so different.
03:35 andrewma If my analysis is correct, I can conclude that charconv() is effectively no longer required and the routine removed entirely. I would really appreciate finding someone who could check my findings.
03:36 * jcamins would suggest submitting a patch doing what you theorize is correct, and adding a note for the QA team about your concerns. And maybe check with paul_p and rangi to see if either of them know anything about it.
03:39 andrewma Thanks for your help, I have emailed Paul as it was his comment that I was looking to address. Now I just need to learn how to submit a patch - something for me to do tomorrow as it is really late here! Appreciate your help

17:04 andrewma Hi, I have an installation of koha on a debian box, but now want to also configure a dev environment on the same machine. I think my problem is that the zebra server configuration.
17:08 andrewma The koha-common daemon is using data from /etc/koha/sites but the dev environment has its config files under /root/koha_dev/etc/zebradb.
17:11 cait hm i think i wouldn't install it as root
17:11 cait but create a new user for it
17:33 andrewma Thanks cait. I am tryign again with non-root user, having opened up permissions to be able to do it (using a virtualbox environment)
17:36 andrewma The other thing I haven't got in my environment is a sample database of books/publications etc. I have got the environment up and running and create create patrons etc. But have no books to for  them to check out!
17:37 andrewma Is there anything I can install locally? I have seen the demo site for koha and the set of contributed test database sites.
17:47 andrewma I had been following this doc on Installing koha on a virtual machine:
17:49 andrewma But I have now found[…]pment_Environment which should get me a bit further. This doc has a part 1 that is similar to Josh Hertel's doc.
17:49 andrewma THe wiki also has a section to create a book, so I'll give that a go too.
17:54 cait cool :)
17:55 cait i don't know the iinstructions you first followed but i'd recommend following the wiki instructions
18:11 nlegrand joined #koha
18:44 andrewma The first instructions used VirtualBox which I have used before, so they were helpful.
18:46 andrewma Just done the dev environment set up and modifed to add <!-- Dev environment --> at end, and it displayed it in the source - SUCCESS :-)

22:02 andrewma Thanks for the links, as the manual refers to  misc/translation/ which I assume has been removed and replaced by the translate command.
22:02 cait yes
22:02 cait which manual are you looking at?
22:04 andrewma The manual opened from the Help link: http://manual.koha-community.o[…]on.html#l18nprefs
22:04 cait yes, we need to fix that

22:10 cait left #koha
22:15 andrewma Thanks cait! Bye!
