05:43 * paxed grumbles
05:48 paxed so this doesn't seem to work on master: [% IF Categories.scalar.all(category_type => 'A').count > 0 %]
05:49 paxed Categories.all works. use Categories.scalar.all just returns an empty string.
05:50 calire joined #koha
05:50 paxed ping Joubu ^
06:09 cait paxed: wrong time, he is in Argentina
06:18 paxed cait: his client is on, so he should notice the ping eventually

06:46 marcelr hi #koha
06:50 ashimema surely calling all on a scalar is wrong
06:52 magnuse yeah, that looks wrong
06:52 magnuse and why both scalar and count?
06:52 ashimema exactly
06:52 magnuse i would guess [% IF Categories.all(category_type => 'A').count > 0 %]
06:52 * ashimema is currently reminding himself what `all` actually does
06:54 magnuse "In a template, you can get the all categories with the following TT code: [% Categories.all() %]"
06:54 magnuse ...according to the POD
06:55 ashimema so is 'all' on of our plugins
06:55 * ashimema thought is was core to TT
06:55 reiveune joined #koha
06:55 magnuse it's a wrapper around "return Koha::Patron::Categories->​search_limited($params);"
06:55 magnuse[…]7b8d3542e;hb=HEAD
06:55 reiveune hello
06:55 wahanui bidet, reiveune
06:57 ashimema yup.. then calling scalar is a nonsense

07:15 Frank_Purcell Installing Debian 9.9.0 on Windows 10 through VirtualBox, I am getting "failed to access the mirror" when selecting any mirror link. This means that even sudo wont be preinstalled which gave me endless problems. Can anyone assist?
07:25 irma_ joined #koha
07:25 liliputech_asu Hi Frank_Purcell can you make sure you can access the network from the VM? like what gives a ping to any external service?
07:27 Frank_Purcell how do i check that from the VM during installation?
07:32 Frank_Purcell if i continue without package manager, once in terminal i dont have sudo installed and receive alot of Hash Sum errors. when googling the errors, it was stated the be a sources.list problem (or package manager). so now im trying to select a mirror to resolve these issues before they happen and cant select any mirror
07:33 Frank_Purcell but its like intermittent network loss... i can see it gets a few files and then stops. sometimes closer to file 7 which is the furthest it goes before bombing out
07:33 Frank_Purcell i feel like it is a DNS problem because im going through Virtual Box
07:42 ashimema VirtualBox needs to be configured to expose the external network to the internal OS
07:43 ashimema a 20s google gave me this:[…]-virtual-machine/
07:43 ashimema I can't remember how to do it off the top of my head
07:43 ashimema but it's simple enough
07:43 ashimema you want to set the NAT on VirtualBox
07:44 ashimema[…]puters-on-network
07:44 ashimema is another example walkthrough
07:49 Frank_Purcell thank you ashimema, ill try this now
07:50 ashimema I tihnk the tl:dr is change it from NAT to Bridged
07:51 ashimema and restart the VM (or just restart networking within it) for it to pick up it's own IP
08:03 cait joined #koha
08:04 cait good morning #koha!
08:04 ashimema mornin' cait
08:09 magnuse kia ora cait!
08:13 Frank_Purcell didnt work ashimema. I am getting the exact same errors. So i followed a guide to skip that part and once again update the /etc/apt/sources.list. but still getting hash sum mismatch errors when running apt-get updates and apt-get upgrade
08:14 ashimema I'm all out of idea now I'm afraid
08:21 Frank_Purcell definitely a repository issue. so now im downloading the XFCE CD version instead of the netinstaller ISO of debian. hoping that the required files will be included in the XFCE version - it is much bigger
08:24 Frank_Purcell quick question: no one has a link for debian OS preinstalled ready to install Koha?
08:25 Frank_Purcell cant someone set up the OS to the ideal state, make an image of it, and then upload that image? then everyone can restore the image on their VM/PC and continue with their own personalised koha installation
08:27 cait i thik there probably is not an ideal state
08:27 cait or the Debian devs consider what you get when it's installed the ideal state
08:27 cait and then the rest is up to what you want to do with it and what you prefer
08:28 ashimema to be entirely honest
08:29 ashimema for me the 'ideal state' is a standard debian server instal
08:29 ashimema for me the 'ideal state' is a standard debian server install
08:29 ashimema I've never ever had it fail on my with all the issues you're having
08:29 Frank_Purcell im struggling to install debian in such a way where the Koha installation goes smoothly. Certain aspects of the OS installation are critical and result in complicated error fixing if the install was not perfect
08:30 ashimema it's usually a simple case of 'install debian from netinstall or iso, add koha debian repositories, install koha with apt'
08:30 Frank_Purcell yeah i feel like a fool because its the OS installation im not getting right, not even koha
08:30 Frank_Purcell 100% understood
08:30 ashimema I'm just really surprised it's not working for you
08:30 ashimema so.. why are you installing it in a vm.. just for playing with?
08:31 ashimema cait: do you think the kohdadevbox might be simpler to get going for the above?
08:31 * ashimema hasn't used it for ages.. but it's basically just Koha in a VM fully installed and ready to work with for dev.. but I don't see why it wouldn't work for general playing with either
08:32 Frank_Purcell So i believe in Koha but my company doesnt. we are the largest provider for all libraries in South Africa. we can make a huge difference for our communities here but I need to get it up and running first. Ive sacrified my person PC, which is here with me at work. I dont want to lose everything, so i thought i could test it with VirtualBox. If i get the demo up and running perfectly, the company will buy or rent our own server and then I can repeat the
08:34 Frank_Purcell so basically they are laughing at me with all these issues, thinking that Koha cant make a difference for our clients. But our clients are paying ridiculous amounts for imported LMS/ILS. People take advantage of government offices in SA because we dont have local production to compare to. Especially with software
08:35 Frank_Purcell Its a case of, if I can help our libraries with Koha, more money can go into the community or other library events
08:36 ashimema how much of a demo do they need/want?
08:37 Frank_Purcell I need it up and running completely to have a web accessible version, as for content inside Koha, we can slowly add patrons, media, rules, etc. Similar to the ByWater solutions demo, and the other demos on the Koha site
08:38 ashimema there are a few demo online for example:
08:38 ashimema so it's a fairly long term demo system
08:38 Frank_Purcell Yes, they want my version to look like the bywater one after installation
08:39 Frank_Purcell lets put it this way
08:40 Frank_Purcell I used an image to install Koha on Ubuntu. and its locally on my VM. but i can seem to get the web side working. Once i showed my company the software on my PC they were impressed, but I need to connect it to the web.
08:40 ashimema you can get some pretty reasonable cloud systems these days for not allot of money.. DigitalOcean for example will give you a perfectly adequat debian system for $5USD a month
08:41 Frank_Purcell We are happy to rent a server, exactly as mentioned above, but only if I can prove to get the Koha installation correct.
08:42 Frank_Purcell The OS part I am aware I wont have to deal with it much. but we are a technical company who wants proof that our knowledge is sufficient if something goes wrong.
08:42 ashimema chicken and the egg problem then.. you're trying to install koha 'the hard way' first.. I say 'the hard way'.. but really it seems you're struggling with virtualbox more than anything else
08:43 ashimema fair points
08:43 Frank_Purcell this is true.
08:44 * ashimema has even run koha on a raspberrypi before
08:44 Frank_Purcell I love libraries, and if my company tells me to throw this idea out the window, I may just quit and do it privately. But i am not wealthy and dont have the finance to sustain myself
08:47 * ashimema is thinking, trying to se if thre's any other advice I can give you
08:48 Frank_Purcell maybe I will format my pc, or partition it, and try the installation that way
08:48 ashimema you've picked a rather busy time in community I'm afraid.. lots of the most active people are all gearing up for the next releases and our anual conference so we're all running around like mad at the moment
08:49 Frank_Purcell your guys help has been wonderful so far, I have no complaints. Im new to this and came in with very little knowlege besides the operation part. I was expecting to struggle
08:51 Frank_Purcell immediately there are issues during the installation. I havent even got fair and the package manager selection is giving issues
08:51 Frank_Purcell I keep clicking retry and eventually it goes through to :"Select and install software" and then this fails too
08:51 ashimema that really is so strange :(
08:52 * ashimema runs into meeting.. bbiab
08:58 cait Frank_Purcell: don't give up yet, I am sure it will work out - but as martin said we are a bit frantic right now before the conf
08:58 cait and i am not a linux person myself :(
09:04 Frank_Purcell I wont give up, I believe in open-source and I believe libraries have a crucial role. Koha fits perfectly into my life =)
09:06 tuxayo hi Frank_Purcell  :)
09:06 tuxayo «Select and install software» In which procedure are you stuck?
09:06 vfernandes joined #koha
09:06 Frank_Purcell Error after package installation using ctrl-alt-F4 brings up: "Warning**: Configuring "pkgsel" failed with error code 100.
09:06 Frank_Purcell Menu items 'pkgsel' failed.
09:07 Frank_Purcell Hi tuxayo
09:07 Frank_Purcell I had issues when selecting package manager, but eventually it when through and downloaded. Thereafter I get the error when installing whatever files it downloaded
09:08 Frank_Purcell After select archive mirror (United Kingdom, (
09:11 tuxayo Frank_Purcell: So you are in the Debian instalation if I understand correctly?
09:11 Frank_Purcell[…]rt.cgi?bug=820074
09:11 Frank_Purcell yes
09:12 Frank_Purcell my issue is almost identical to this. I am trying the suggested fix but doesnt seem like its working
09:13 tuxayo Frank_Purcell: which install media (Debian iso) are you using?
09:13 Frank_Purcell debian-9.9.0-amd64-netinst.iso
09:13 Frank_Purcell ive just downloaded debian-9.9.0-amd64-xfce-CD-1.iso
09:13 Frank_Purcell will try that now
09:14 fridolin joined #koha
09:17 tuxayo Frank_Purcell: you might was to check the integrity of the downloaded isos before installing in case something went wrong with the download
09:29 Frank_Purcell didnt work =( same issue. brand new ISO
09:31 Frank_Purcell[…]ha-on-debian.html
09:31 Frank_Purcell i cant get past 2:29 on his video
09:32 Frank_Purcell I dont even get asked for the "configuring popularity contest" page as I dont think i connect to the the mirror successfully
09:37 marcelr joined #koha
09:39 Frank_Purcell apparently you have to use the "live iso" to get it to work in VirtualBox. so now im downloading 2.2GB Debian 9.9.0 Gnome
09:39 Frank_Purcell debian-live-9.9.0-amd64-gnome.iso2019-04-27 12:502.2G
09:52 tuxayo weird, the Debian 8 was instalable with the net install in VirtualBox, so Debian should also be.

11:01 Frank_Purcell Hi tuxayo, Ive checked that guide and ive basically done everything identically... So i am not sure why it didnt work. Will keep trying diferrent ISO's and maybe Ill try an older version of Debian.
11:03 Frank_Purcell You see the part where Debian Desktop Environment and Standard System utilities is selected by default, and you must also select SSH Server, I dont even get those options because the mirror/repository doesnt download or connect properly. Without those files, I cannot install koha through the terminal
11:06 indradg joined #koha
11:12 magnuse sounds like a network problem? could there be a firewall blocking you?
11:14 Frank_Purcell nope, Im on my own internet, through my wifi router (with sim card)
11:14 magnuse ah, ok
11:16 magnuse So selecting a mirror works, but then when the system starts downloading stuff there are problems?
11:18 magnuse is this where you get the .iso from?[…]ent/amd64/iso-cd/
11:22 magnuse Did you choose "Install" or Graphical install"?
11:23 magnuse which version of VirtualBox?
11:23 oleonard joined #koha
11:24 indradg Hia all
11:24 magnuse hi indradg
11:24 magnuse hi oleonard
11:24 wahanui hi oleopard
11:25 oleonard Hi all from me too!
11:27 indradg I´m getting a unblessed error against itemnumber while attempting to make an item level hold on 18.11.05
11:27 indradg things were working perfectly on 18.11.02... upgraded and *boom*
11:27 indradg memcached, mysql, koha-common restarted
11:28 indradg what could be the case?
11:29 magnuse Frank_Purcell: did you try selecting a mirror in South Africa
11:33 ashimema sorry indradg, there's a bug for that.. my mistake on a backport I think :(
11:34 ashimema https://bugs.koha-community.or[…]_bug.cgi?id=22895
11:34 huginn` Bug 22895: critical, P5 - low, ---, nick, Pushed to Stable , [18.11] cannot place item level holds
11:35 ashimema I've grabbed the patch for 18.11.06 but that's not out yet and there are a couple of other gremlins I wanted to get fixed before release :(
11:41 magnuse Frank_Purcell: i just downloaded[…]amd64-netinst.iso, set up a vm in vb, booted off the iso, selected a mirror in south africa (i'm in norway) and ran through the install process without problems
11:42 ashimema almost feels like local networking blocking your requests to the repo's at this point Frank_Purcell
11:47 alex_a joined #koha
11:48 Frank_Purcell I have also tried this from 3 internet sources. My Home internet, a family members home internet, and my mobile Wifi. This could be a local network block... I wonder how to bypass. Ive just downloaded the Gnome version, so hopefully all required files including SSH server will be there and I dont need the repositories until a bit later. lets see
11:48 Frank_Purcell @magnuse sorry I only saw your questions now. Will reply in 2secs
11:48 huginn` Frank_Purcell: I'll give you the answer as soon as RDA is ready
11:48 wahanui i already had it that way, huginn`.
11:49 oleonard ( Frank_Purcell note that huginn` responds that way because he thinks using @ like that is a bot command )
11:51 Frank_Purcell When I select a mirror, it begins to download files up to the 7th file. Often, it says Failed to access mirror. But then I hit retry and it eventually works (recently it has been working on the first, or second attempt). Once that is done, it begins "Select and Install Software" - this completely fails. I have to ignore this and was hoping to manually add the repository and apt-get update from the terminal but this didnt fix the issues.
11:53 Frank_Purcell I used graphic install and virtual box 6.0.6 r130049 (Qt5.6.2)
11:54 Frank_Purcell i tried all mirrors in south africa, as well as ftp US and ftp UK
11:54 magnuse wow, how weird
11:54 magnuse i'm on vb 5, so yours should be better
11:54 magnuse i did not change anything about the networking
11:55 Frank_Purcell as mentioned, they usually fail but i keep "retrying" until it goes through. But then i dont get the page that offers the GUI or the SSH Server so i now believe the repository didnt work at all. it just allowed me to continue
11:55 Frank_Purcell hence the Select and Install doesnt work
11:55 Frank_Purcell let me try the new ISO quick with Gnome
11:57 magnuse so weird if you tried 3 different internet connections, and they all behave the same
11:57 ashimema very very wierd
11:58 Frank_Purcell yeah, i thought it had to be the network because everything i saw on google says DNS issue or firewall. But no luck
11:59 Frank_Purcell could it possible be because I set a domain name instead of leaving it blank?
11:59 magnuse could it be related to anti virus on your machine?
12:00 magnuse nah, i don't think domain name should affect your ability to download stuff from utside
12:00 magnuse *outside
12:00 Frank_Purcell I uninstalled my AV and only using Microsoft defender now, disabled firewall
12:01 magnuse ah, the jokes one could have made a few years ago... ;-)
12:01 khall joined #koha
12:02 Frank_Purcell haha =P well this installation is running alot slower, clearly install quite a bit more - which is a good sign. "Installing the system" now
12:03 Frank_Purcell just by the way, my company is partnered with bibliotheca - not sure if any of you deal with them? They are global giants in regards to Security equipment, RFID, automated returns and sorting etc
12:04 magnuse yeah, i think it is hard to run an ils and not get in contact with them :-)
12:04 Frank_Purcell Do they support you guys? as in Koha
12:05 Frank_Purcell because it would be directly in line with the changes they are trying to make in the world
12:05 magnuse well, Koha supports SIP2, so it mostly works, i think
12:05 magnuse what changes are that?
12:05 Frank_Purcell I mean as a company do they support your community
12:06 Frank_Purcell They are trying to help librarians spend less time on physical and repetitive tasks by automating it, and increase event and community integration
12:07 Frank_Purcell as far as im concerned, the Koha community has the best interests of the community at heart, so i thought bibliotheca would be involved with this
12:07 ashimema they don't support Koha directly as far as I'm aware no
12:07 magnuse nah, i don't tink they have had any contact with the community
12:07 ashimema they're just another self service vendor in my experience
12:07 * magnuse too
12:07 Frank_Purcell thats sad. maybe i can change that one day
12:08 Frank_Purcell they dont offer an ILS, but they are partnered with the likes of SirsiDynix. They should partner with you guys and use some of the funds to donate back to the koha community for development purposes
12:09 oleonard Frank_Purcell: Currently the Koha community can receive support in the way of code contributions/testing/documentation, or in sponsorship of events like KohaCon
12:09 Frank_Purcell exactly
12:09 oleonard
12:09 magnuse that would be cool
12:10 Frank_Purcell The internation director will be here on the 6th of June until the 11th, I will mention to him and see if i can start something
12:10 magnuse it's mind numbing that SIP2 is still the standard for communicating between ils'es and physical equipment...
12:11 ashimema I think 'dootrix' are the most recent people to try to change that magnuse
12:11 Frank_Purcell yip, but its quite extensive in regards to sending and communicating lines. There is nothing I am aware of that has the complexity to differentiate lines as much. Im in sales but recently did a training session on SIP2
12:11 tuxayo Frank_Purcell: «this installation is running alot slower, clearly install quite a bit more - which is a good sign» This isn't a netinstall with the live isos, internet might even be optional during the install.
12:12 tuxayo So indeed that should help with your issues.
12:13 Frank_Purcell my installation is failing now... at a much earlier stage "Install the System" ... what a waste of a 2gb download
12:13 magnuse any error messages?
12:13 tuxayo how does it fails?
12:15 Frank_Purcell No error message just "Failed stage: Install the System" i should have pressed ctrl alt f5 should i? running it agin quick
12:17 tuxayo Frank_Purcell: yes, and maybe ask on the debian channel  #debian how to get more info if it's not enough.
12:18 Frank_Purcell Do you think it could be bugs with the virtualbox version?
12:18 Frank_Purcell i would have said maybe an issue with Debian 9.9.0 but magnuse said it ran without an issue
12:19 tuxayo Is there an update available for your virtualbox?
12:19 Frank_Purcell yea, update became available this morning but i wanted to try a few more times before updating
12:19 magnuse ooh, i'd make sure i had the latest version
12:20 * magnuse wanders off for a bit
12:23 Frank_Purcell "Install the system" "Installing the system..." "Copying data to disk..." its about half way, and this is where it crashed last time.
12:23 Frank_Purcell damn
12:23 Frank_Purcell "installation step failed" The failing step is: install the system
12:24 Frank_Purcell o0 looks like i ran out of space?? (process:7325): tar: write error: No space left on device
12:25 Frank_Purcell tar: write error: Broken pipe
12:25 Frank_Purcell WARNING **: Configuring 'liv-installer' failed with error code 1.
12:25 Frank_Purcell will set more space and see what happens
12:26 tuxayo Ho ^^"
12:28 tuxayo That's a bit of a relief that it was only that, hopefully nothing more will block you
12:31 Frank_Purcell knowing my luck Ill get the same error and the fix is super complicated =P I gave it 20GB now up from 8GB so lets see =)
12:32 Frank_Purcell atleast im learning so many new things

14:46 Jess Hello!  I was wondering if anyone had a solution to books not showing up in the search option after manually entering into the catalog system?  Any suggestions would be fantastic.  It worked in the past but has stopped working.  Cannot even be searched under barcode number, but can be checked out and checked in.
14:53 Joubu Jess: some info on the wiki: https://wiki.koha-community.or[…]bleshooting_Zebra ; First make sure the zebra daemon is running (you are running zebra right?), then a full reindex will certainly fix your problem
14:54 Jess I am running Zebra, thank you, I will try this

14:55 wizzyrea I couldn't get your patch to make any difference to the behaviour
14:56 ashimema blast
14:56 wizzyrea but I wonder if i'm doing it wrong
14:56 wizzyrea because i always wonder that
14:56 wizzyrea lol
14:56 ashimema nah, it's likely not you
14:56 ashimema that area of code melted my brain
14:57 wizzyrea I was wondering if (a) solution
14:57 wizzyrea would be
14:57 wizzyrea if you are not a user to whom the suggestion belongs
14:57 wizzyrea hide the batch editor
14:57 wizzyrea it seems to always work using the edit button
14:58 ashimema hmm.. perhaps
14:59 wizzyrea i imagine librarians feel a bit like oprah when they "check all" -> mark as accepted
14:59 wizzyrea You get a wish! and YOU get a wish!
15:00 Joubu I think we need a quick fix for the "change status" action
15:00 Joubu the other issues are old
15:01 alex_a joined #koha
15:01 ashimema agreed
15:02 ashimema I was hoping I'd got the quick fix.. but alas it doesn' work
15:02 ashimema tere's more to it :(
15:04 ashimema I have one more idea up my sleeve
15:04 cait whatever you do... keep in mind there are suggestions without a branch
15:05 cait anon susggestion feature adds them but i think you can also manage in the gui somehow without it
15:05 ashimema I don't think those one's are the issue
15:05 cait ok :)
15:05 ashimema it's the re-use of param names that's screwing with us
15:05 cait just we got a tono f bugs relating to that issue too
15:05 cait like who shoudl see them...
15:10 wizzyrea it's tricky that one
15:10 wizzyrea :(
15:10 wizzyrea ashimema, I feel like I'm a bad news bear this morning
15:11 ashimema nope.. the more I dig into this the more my brain hurts
15:12 ashimema it seems to be very deliberate to be using the filter params in a shared way
15:12 ashimema this code is horrible :'(
15:16 Joubu ashimema: I am wondering if all the filters/views options we have are really necesary
15:19 Joubu ashimema: do not hesitate to let FIXME behind you while writting a fix ;)
15:19 ashimema haha
15:19 ashimema it's a royal mess aint it..
15:19 ashimema I can see why it gave you a headache
15:22 wizzyrea heh

15:25 ashimema but that's for another day

15:29 ashimema it runs fines in koha-testing-docker for me now
15:29 ashimema :(
15:31 ashimema same failure as before?
15:31 ashimema or a different one?
15:31 ashimema I'm re-running the tests now
15:33 ashimema ooh.. I get a completely urelated test fail now

15:36 wizzyrea yea mine was test 117
15:36 wizzyrea this time it was devbox but I think I ran it in docker yesterday
15:37 wizzyrea it's very odd. Oh now it's failing a bunch of things?!
15:38 wizzyrea 88-91, 95-97, 117
15:39 wizzyrea and I just ran it again and it's just 117 again
15:39 ashimema passed again

15:42 ashimema I believe you wizzyrea, sometimes these things are evil to replicate
15:43 wizzyrea omg circulation.t is SO RANDOM.
15:43 * wizzyrea backs out all the patches and puts on all the ones from joubu
15:43 ashimema lol
15:44 ashimema wow
15:44 ashimema I love the last patch there Joubu
15:44 ashimema using perl datetime instead of mysql for the timestamp
15:45 ashimema I can see reasonable reasons for that actually.. but.. I wonder how often logaction is called and whether the DateTime performance inpact will be annoying
15:45 wizzyrea omfg it's something different every time
15:45 wizzyrea WHAT EVEN.
15:45 Joubu that was a bit unexpected to see another test failing after I fixed 3 others before :)
15:46 ashimema lol
15:50 ashimema I don't really like that actionlogs test
15:51 wizzyrea[…]2530126/tenor.gif it's me
15:51 ashimema :vsplit
15:53 ashimema gonna submit an alternative to your last patch Joubu
15:53 ashimema it's actually caused by a typo in the test!
15:53 Joubu ashimema: yes we could replace it
15:53 Joubu I did not think about the perf impact it could bring
15:56 fridolin left #koha
15:58 ashimema hope you're OK with my alternative posted now
15:58 ashimema I really can't get Circulation.t to fail for the other patchset though :(
15:59 ashimema hard ot fix when you can't replicate the issue
15:59 oleonard wizzyrea: I too would like to throw down my fork.[…]
16:00 ashimema wt..
16:00 ashimema lol
16:01 ashimema query for you Joubu.. I note in that test we use ->count(search_params) rather than the ->search(search_params)->count form..
16:01 ashimema is that something we want to encourage or discourage I wonder..
16:01 * ashimema is keen on consistency.. but isn't really sure in this case
16:03 Joubu they must be identical
16:04 Joubu with ->search we will hit Koha::Objects->search, which may be surcharged
16:04 Joubu well, this is not correct, but you get the idea (or not?)
16:08 ashimema Yeah..
16:08 tcohen Joubu— # inconsitencies
16:08 alex_a joined #koha
16:09 ashimema so actually we want to actively discourage passing params to count unless we're not just passing through to dbic
16:09 ashimema just as I suspected
16:09 ashimema to..
16:09 cait alex_a++
16:09 wizzyrea oleonard, that is fork toss worthy
16:09 ashimema there's another hole in logic there
16:09 alex_a \o/
16:10 tcohen \o
16:10 ashimema we just allow the use of count through Koha::Objects
16:10 ashimema which is wrong
16:10 ashimema we have two options
16:10 Joubu it does not matter much
16:10 ashimema well.. more than two
16:11 ashimema ;)
16:13 Joubu but yeah, better to ->search then ->count, even for readability.
16:14 * ashimema agrees
16:18 wizzyrea well I took the nuclear option and rebuilt a new docker and now the tests pass
16:18 wizzyrea idfk
16:18 wizzyrea lol
16:20 ashimema how strange
16:20 wizzyrea it's extremely strange
16:20 ashimema glad they're passing.. still wondering why they were failing
16:20 ashimema very strange
16:21 wizzyrea idk, they were failing in a lot of ways
16:21 wizzyrea they ran a lot faster on devbox than they did on docker
16:21 ashimema thanks for testing.. it's great having good testers to rely on
16:22 ashimema that's interesting too
16:22 wizzyrea well that particular bug would be enraging to librarians
16:22 Joubu ashimema: `git grep datenonly` => 3 occurrences!
16:22 ashimema crap
16:22 ashimema I so should have done that
16:23 ashimema did you want to fix the last occurence or shall I?

19:53 wizzyrea well
19:54 wizzyrea reboot the devbox first :P

19:54 Joubu do we have special logs for the rest api?
19:55 wizzyrea ok do you happen to use the same kohaclone for both devbox and docker (if you use that)
19:55 wizzyrea I've had the permissions go funny occasionally on the clone when I switch between the two
19:55 wizzyrea now I try not ever to run them at the same time
