07:49 Frank_P Good morning everyone =)
07:52 m23_ joined #koha
07:53 Frank_P Trying to set up my DNS through: https://wiki.koha-community.or[…]ain_name_for_Koha, I can across an issue. When saving /etc/koha/koha-sites.conf - I get [Error writing: No such file or directory] Does this mean that the koha installation I ran was unsuccessful? I am thinking it is a network issue because I am connected via a wifi router and not a standard LAN port
07:54 ashimema mornin' #koha
07:54 Frank_P ashimema: morning =)
07:55 * ashimema feels tired this morning
07:56 ashimema what user were you editing the file as.. it usually has root permissions I believe
07:56 ashimema is the file simply not there?
07:56 ashimema ooh..
07:56 ashimema that wiki page is 3 years old and only written by one person
07:57 ashimema let me take a quick read to check everything is up to date and correct and I'll get back to you
07:57 * ashimema thinks our documentation is too fragmented on the wiki :(
08:02 Frank_P ashimema: thank you - but remember I was getting continuous Hash Sum mismatch errors. whenever running apt-get update/ apt-get upgrade/ even when using apt-get install koha-common
08:04 Frank_P I think because of my non-LAN internet connection (perhaps my service provider configuration) - I could not properly connect to the mirrors/repositories. So i think some critical files are corrupt or not installed. So my entire OS installation is compromised. This weekend I will run everything again off my home network which will be LAN
08:05 Frank_P ashimema: I am in root, using nano =) /etc/koha/koha-sites.conf. I have not installed any other text editor. but nano has been working perfectly
08:06 Frank_P I would love to be a tester for all future versions of koha. Happy to write out guides and make installation videos. And will inform real developers of changes comparing to previous installation versions =)
08:10 ashimema hmm,  /etc/koha/koha-sites.conf should be there
08:10 ashimema nano is a good choice
08:11 indradg_ joined #koha
08:11 ashimema does /etc/koha exist at all?
08:11 ashimema `ls /etc/koha`
08:12 Frank_P nope. No such file or directory
08:12 Frank_P i guess the installation completely failed then
08:13 indradg_ anyone here using kohadevbox on windows?
08:14 ashimema sounds like it.
08:14 wahanui well, sounds like it is something i need to at least store in a safe place in the even i want to install koha on a different pi
08:14 ashimema very odd
08:15 Frank_P ashimema: im now download a 3.4GB "debian-9.9.0-amd64" iso...  I hadnt even seen this one yet? Howcome debian 9.9.0 has a 200mb file, a 600mb file, a 2.2gb file, and a 3.4gb file. PS - ive tried the first 3 files. perhaps the last one will work for me
08:15 ashimema I'd hold off on that
08:16 ashimema it does sound like you're still having basic networking issues
08:16 Frank_P i think its network issues only during installation though. im hoping that the bigger the version the more files will be successfully installed
08:16 ashimema even with the full massive file used for installing debian.. without proper networking setup then Koha itself won't be able to install as it won't be able to grab the packages from our repositories
08:17 ashimema hmm
08:17 Frank_P once im in terminal, the network does seem to work though. just cant resolve the corrupt files
08:17 Frank_P but I do understand you =) could just be my connection here

08:33 * ashimema jumps into meetings
08:33 ashimema sorry Frank_P I'll be back in a bit
08:34 tuxayo hi Frank_P :)

08:44 calire indradg_: I believe oleonard does, he might be around later
08:45 m23 hello Koha
08:50 vfernandes joined #koha
08:51 vfernandes hi #koha
08:59 vfernandes can someone help me with one question related with ElasticSearch?
08:59 m23 Can anybody confirm inconsistent inconsistent at Chcek-in? Symptoms: if read barcodes on check-in page and lightbox show information about item transfer, list if previous check-ins gone. Similr situation if lightbox show info about resrvation
09:00 m23 similar situaion in case if reservation, light box show info about reservation, but list of previous chcek-ins don't gone.
09:01 vfernandes by some reason /cgi-bin/koha/admin/searchengine/elasticsearch​/ is not setting up the correct indexes on ES
09:03 vfernandes there is any other way to force it?
09:16 indradg_ joined #koha
09:16 indradg_ calire: thank you
09:24 Frank_P tuxayo: Morning =) Yeah i checked sizes and everything looked good. also spent last night redownloading all of them. I think its the way my network is connecting, as it isnt LAN. But on first time Debian boot, just after fresh install, before it even gets to the GUI login, i get error [6.212375] [drm:vmw_host_log [vmwgfx]] *ERROR*
09:25 Frank_P but then i wait a while and it still boots successfully.
09:26 tuxayo Frank_P: « i checked sizes » did you check SHA1 or MD5 sums?
09:27 Frank_P no i did not. no idea how to verify with those
09:27 Frank_P i guess i just needed to look how, but havent yet
09:27 tuxayo Frank_P: yes, this is important for critical things such as OS isos
09:27 tuxayo > drm:vmw_host_log [vmwgfx
09:27 tuxayo maybe:
09:27 tuxayo[…]st-log-message-sh

09:40 Frank_P tuxayo: downloaded, installed, created a sha256 file of the ISO. but have no clue what im doing... lol. i guess I need to compare it to the file i saw on debian website? also shar256 or a md5 or something?
09:43 * tuxayo sent a long message:  <[…]FfUqvXnDHTfzWBTut >
09:46 tuxayo checksums are like a fingerprint of a file, if one bit of the file changes, the checksum will also change.
09:47 indradg_ joined #koha
09:48 Frank_P tuxayo: its all matching successfully
09:49 tuxayo Frank_P: Ho, I wished that was the issue... At least we know it's okay on this side ^^
09:50 chris joined #koha
09:50 Frank_P haha, im 101% certain now its the network configuration. but if I try again with a normal LAN connection and it doesnt work - i think i may cry.
09:53 Frank_P tuxayo: Ive gone into nano /etc/apt/sources.list and see this comment: # Line commented out by installer because it failed to virfy: #deb-src stretch main
09:54 Frank_P PS this is before ive touched any repositories - only using the mirror from the installation. I new the installation wasnt connecting properly
09:54 Frank_P knew*
09:55 tuxayo Frank_P: this is a though issue which is worth submitting in chat decidated to Debian
09:55 tuxayo Or the one about exorcism
09:59 indradg_ joined #koha
09:59 Frank_P as soon as i test my other network then ill submit. could be a typical "South Africa network provider blocks something that all other countries allow" so want to test home network first
10:00 Frank_P so ive updated repository list, and immedietely get Hash sum mismatch errors when running apt update
10:00 Frank_P no point in trying anything else besides the 3.4gb iso ive just downloaded

12:03 oleonard Anyone know about this error? Can't locate object method "_new_from_dbic" via package "Koha::AdditionalField" (perhaps you forgot to load "Koha::AdditionalField"?) at /home/vagrant/kohaclone/Ko​ha/ line 27.
12:03 oleonard I'm getting it when accessing a record in the OPAC with a subscription
12:03 oleonard (
12:07 oleonard Adding "use Koha::AdditionalFields" to seems to fix it.

12:16 oleonard kidclamp: Could you confirm a bug for me? I get an error when I view a record in the OPAC which has a subscription
12:16 oleonard Oh, same in the staff client
12:18 kidclamp hmmm...on master?
12:18 kidclamp what error?
12:18 oleonard Can't locate object method "_new_from_dbic" via package "Koha::AdditionalField" (perhaps you forgot to load "Koha::AdditionalField"?) at /home/vagrant/kohaclone/Ko​ha/ line 27.
12:18 oleonard Oh wait I'm not sure this branch is up to date
12:19 kidclamp yeah, all works for me
12:21 oleonard No, still happening for me on master...
12:22 kidclamp kohadevbox?
12:22 calire oleonard - internal server error?
12:22 oleonard Yes and yes
12:22 calire I think I might be getting that too

12:27 kidclamp I don't, but adding a use there might fix it
12:28 oleonard It does, but since it was just a guess I was hoping for more info. I'm doing a bisect

12:30 Frank_P Hi All, im slightly confused, I downloaded the full dvd version of Debian (3.4gb) and when
12:31 Frank_P going through installation, i still get failed "Select and install software"
12:31 Frank_P Even when i dont select a mirror (was going to do this through terminal afterwards)

12:35 gk Hi koha
12:35 oleonard Thanks kidclamp I'll test right away
12:46 Frank_P [Failed] Select and install software. Error: main-menu[348]: WARNING **: Configuring 'pkgsel' failed with error code 100. --- I get this error during installation without even selecting a mirror. It is as if the installer cannot get the correct files from the ISO? Iso is checked checksum, no issues... Im starting to feel like this isnt a network issue...
12:46 Frank_P Anyone know what it could be?
12:48 oleonard Frank_P: I'm not trying to put you off asking here, but have you asked these questions in a Debian-specific forum?
12:48 oleonard You're welcome to ask here but I don't know that you're getting the most possible eyeballs on your problem
12:49 Frank_P I havent yet, which would you suggest. the standard forum?
12:50 oleonard Sorry I don't know to recommend anything specific
12:50 Frank_P No probs, ill have a look. thank you
12:50 oleonard You might do well to see if there's anything which is geographically near to you.
13:04 oleonard Why would show a record just fine bug think it should be hidden in the OPAC?
13:09 khall joined #koha
13:11 dolf joined #koha
13:12 indradg joined #koha
13:14 dolf Quick question: I'm running "koha-rebuild-zebra instance", but books are not showing up in search. If I run "koha-rebuild-zebra -f instance", they do show up (but it takes a lot longer, obviously). Any ideas why this might happen? It's been working fine for years, and I'm not sure what changed.
13:14 dolf correction: "new books" (since the last time I rebuilt zebra) are not showing up in search
13:18 tcohen @seen matts
13:18 huginn` tcohen: matts was last seen in #koha 4 weeks, 3 days, 6 hours, 8 minutes, and 31 seconds ago: <matts> https://downforeveryoneorjustm[…]
13:18 tcohen hola matts
13:21 cait dolf: you want to chck that your indexer is running
13:21 tcohen ok
13:21 cait one thing to check is look into the zebraqueue table - there should be no or almost no entries with done = 0
13:22 cait (not indexed)
13:22 cait and tcohen probably knows the indexer commands ;)
13:22 dolf cait: lemme check!
13:24 tcohen dolf: koha-rebuild-zebra instance will only make incremental updates, i.e. those marked as done=0 in the zebraqueue table
13:26 khall joined #koha
13:26 dolf "SELECT count(*) FROM `zebraqueue` where done=0 " gives me 20 items. After running koha-rebuild-zebra, it's exactly the same.
13:27 dolf "systemctl status koha-common" says "active (running)"
13:28 tcohen what about
13:28 tcohen koha-indexer —start instance
13:30 dolf tcohen: magic! It works. But now I'm still baffled about why it stopped in the first place.
13:31 dolf I thought the koha-indexer was part of the koha-common service.
13:32 tcohen what Koha version is it?
13:32 dolf latest. let met check the number...
13:32 tcohen ah
13:32 tcohen when we introducer the 'indexer' it was disabled by default
13:32 tcohen maybe you carry old files
13:33 tcohen in /etc/defaults/koha
13:33 tcohen sorry, /etc/default/koha-common
13:33 dolf "apt search koha" => "koha-common/stable,now 18.11.05-1 all [installed]"
13:34 dolf in /etc/default/koha-common: USE_INDEXER_DAEMON="yes"
13:35 tcohen the koha-indexer and koha-rebuild-zebra scripts call (internally) a perl script called
13:35 dolf Maybe it just crashed at some point. It's running fine again now.
13:35 tcohen that script sets locks to avoid race conditions
13:36 tcohen maybe the lock was left because of a breakage, yes
13:36 dolf I have a lot of these in my /var/log/koha/rsc/zebra-output.log: "zebrasrv(49) [warn] ir_session (exception)"
13:36 tcohen those are ok
13:36 tcohen those are zebra server logs, not related to the indexing steps, but searches
13:37 tcohen look at the *indexer logs
13:37 dolf ok, does the indexer have a log?
13:37 tcohen yeah
13:37 dolf snap
13:38 indradg joined #koha
13:39 dolf OK, the indexer-err.log shows that the problems started on the 13th, which corresponds to what I'm seeing. Stuff like this:
13:39 dolf 20190513 11:54:34 rsc-koha-indexer: client (pid 5253) exited with 255 status 20190513 11:54:36 rsc-koha-indexer: client (pid 5270) exited with 255 status 20190513 11:54:38 rsc-koha-indexer: client (pid 5847) exited with 255 status 20190513 11:54:39 rsc-koha-indexer: client (pid 6401) exited with 255 status 20190513 11:54:41 rsc-koha-indexer: client (pid 6620) exited with 255 status 20190513 11:54:41 rsc-koha-indexer: terminating too quickly, waiting 30 seconds
13:40 tcohen that's probably because of the lock
13:41 dolf Thanks for the help. Let's hope it's stable now :)
13:41 matts hola tcohen
13:41 * oleonard waves to matts
13:42 tcohen what auth methods in Koha does stable Coral support?

13:51 Joubu nope, I gave up
13:52 cait that's not  a good sign

14:07 wizzyrea is a bummer
14:08 calire left #koha
14:25 ashimema Well done working through the suggestions bug Joubu
14:25 ashimema I agree with your solution
14:26 ashimema My 'simple' attempt was very clearly not enough when I dug into it further. I'm not especially confident in the other proposed one either.. I'll give your version a proper grilling over kohacon I reckon
14:33 wizzyrea i feel reasonably confident in joubu's patch
14:33 wizzyrea i poked at it several ways
14:35 Joubu I wanted to isolate what we needed for this action, I think we should do that for all other parts, and then refactor it. Adding new small voodoo parts will not help :)
14:37 wizzyrea i am opposed to voodoo parts
14:37 Joubu I will not include a dry fetus of llama somewhere in the code then
14:38 wizzyrea that seems sesible
14:38 wizzyrea sensible even
14:38 wizzyrea idek how you'd get a dry llama fetus into a commit.
14:38 wizzyrea there's your new business model
14:38 wizzyrea git for RL
14:39 wizzyrea TM me.

16:12 tuxayo hi indradg_  :)
16:12 tuxayo
16:12 tuxayo >  The size of this repository (17 Gb) exceeds the limit of 9,8 Gb by 7,5 Gb. You won't be able to push new code to this project. Please contact your GitLab administrator for more information.
16:22 ashimema Yup
16:23 ashimema rangi  and I were talking about ways to slim down our repo somewhat and we're going to tackle some of it at kohacon.. not sure how it will effect gitlab yet though as first goal is to prevent it growing at such a rate.
16:24 oleonard ashimema: I think if we could just fix everything in a single commit, then we'd never have to add anything ever again.
16:24 oleonard Seems silly we didn't do that earlier. "Bug 1: Fix all the bugs"

22:47 MWR Okay, I've done my development/testing install of Koha on a Debian 9 machine... Everything looks good. I think I'm going to deploy our production Koha onto Ubuntu for the ease of future distribution updates... Koha Documentation states that it works on Ubuntu 16.04 (Xenial)... Can anyone here tell me if it works well on 18.04 LTS?
22:48 MWR I plan on staying on LTS versions... so the next updated LTS of Ubuntu isn't scheduled until April 2020.
