Koha 3 Packaging

Ok, the 2nd crack of my debian package is up in my repo now
deb http://apt.workbuffer.org/ hardy all
To your /etc/apt/sources.list
And then
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install libkoha-perl

And if you are willing you can checkout my package branch, and build your own package, for your architecture.

git clone git://gitorious.org/koha/mainline.git koha
git clone http://git.gitorious.org/koha/mainline.git

git -r branch
Will show you the remote branches,
git checkout origin/package

Gets you the package branch, then you run
fakeroot dpkg-buildpackage -b -tc -us -uc

If you want to make any changes, and build a new package with a higher patch number, run
dch -i
Then commit the debian/changelog file and rebuild your package.

Any patches gratefully accepted, once I have it fully working with debconf and the preinst, postinst, postrm scripts all going I will submit patches to patches@koha.org.

Oh, and Marc from Biblibre informed me I forgot to tell people how they can get my public key. You can get it from biglumber.com
Or simply by running
gpg --keyserver subkeys.pgp.net --recv-key 557F7779


I have removed the packages as people were trying to use them for purposes other than just testing.

Back home

Well after a bunch of drama with flights, which meant sitting in airports for more than 15 hours (for a 3 hour flight), I made it back home. The installation and training went well, and the weather was fantastic. Met tons of lovely people too, so apart from airline drama’s it was a most successful trip.

I’ve been uploading photos to the gallery, Kahurangi’s birthday party and other miscellaneous photos of him. No photos from Fiji unfortunately as I forgot my camera.

Home Alone

Well in 6 hours I will be.  Tomorrow morning Laurel and Kahurangi fly out towards Pittsburgh. It’s going to be a long series of flights, thats the trouble with booking a flight using airpoints, they route you the most retarded routes.  It’s even more retarded coming back, but they should have a lot fun while they are there and that’s the main thing.

So it will be just the pets and I for 3 week which the cat will be happy about as now Kahurangi is crawling his main obsession is trying to grab her. I’d imagine a few nights on the couch watching the rugby will be had, as well as more takeaways than is healthy being consumed.

Exploring Downtown Philadelphia

Here is my mission for today

  1. Find good Coffee
  2. Buy some Aveeno products for Manaia
  3. Don’t get lost
  4. Explore the area around Market Street – tons of things to look at there
  5. Get to bed at reasonable time .. have to be at the airport by 5am at the latest tomorrow.

So far, Ive found good coffee, in this great little Italian cafe called Hausbrandt, on Walnut Street. I also found a CVS Pharmacy and got some stuff for Manaia.
On to the rest of the list.
