Please help this newbie :)

Johan Seyfferdt
Hello.

Thank you for adding me to this mailing list.

I have a question.

I am a sysadmin in St Petersburg, Russia and we are in the process of
moving to Koha.  So I am a newbie :)

I chosed the unimarc option as our database is in rusmarc.  We have our
database in .mrc format,  it is about 27 000 books in cyrilic, english and
german.

I was able to setup koha import that database but the search function does
not work.

I did a lot of googling, i tried kooha 16.05, 16.11, 17.05 on Debain 8 and
9 but without avail...

Any help will be truly appreciated! as i am truly stuck.

Hello Johan,

I'd suggest following the instructions as per in the documentation:
https://wiki.koha-community.org/wiki/Troubleshooting_Zebra#Searching_and_Searching_Issues

Namely, does connecting with yaz work?
yaz-client -c /etc/koha/zebradb/ccl.properties unix:/var/run/koha/
*<INSTANCE_NAME>*/bibliosocket

Or have you tried searching after a zebra rebuild?
koha-rebuld-zebra -f -v *<INSTANCE_NAME>*

GL,

Pedro Amorim

Hi Johan,

with the default configuration Koha won't search for records with
non-latin characters correctly, but this can be fixed - you will have to
switch to ICU for indexing. Instructions can be found on the wiki:

https://wiki.koha-community.org/wiki/ICU_chains_configuration

If it doesn't work at all, even for your German and English records,
there might be another problem. Did you specify UNIMARC when creating
the instance (defaults to MARC21)? Or only in the web installer? If the
first was missed, your indexing configuration won't match your data
which could also explain problems.

Hope this helps,

Katrin

Johan Seyfferdt
Hello Katrin

Thank you so much for your response.

None of our records works including German and English.

I specified unimarc only in the web-installer.   I honestly do not know
where to specify unimarc in the creation of the instance.

Here is all the installation commands I used until the web installer point
(in debian 8):

su

wget -q -O- http://debian.koha-community.org/koha/gpg.asc | apt-key add -

echo 'deb http://debian.koha-community.org/koha stable main' | tee
/etc/apt/sources.list.d/koha.list

apt-get update

echo 'deb http://debian.koha-community.org/koha 17.05 main' | tee
/etc/apt/sources.list.d/koha.list

apt-get update

apt-get install koha-common mysql-server apache2

Configure Apache

a2enmod rewrite
a2enmod cgi

Configure apache

nano /etc/apache2/ports.conf and add
Listen 8080
Listen 8081

/etc/init.d/apache2 restart

create library
koha-create --create-db libraryname

Retrieve the admin username and password

nano /etc/koha/sites/libraryname/koha-conf.xml


<config>
  <db_scheme>mysql</db_scheme>

<user>[system generated]</user>
<pass>[Some password generated by the system]</pass>

nano /etc/apache2/sites-enabled/namelibrary.conf

# OPAC
<VirtualHost *:8080>
# Intranet
<VirtualHost *:8081>

add russian language

sudo koha-translate --list
koha-translate --list --available
koha-translate --install ru-RU

Hi all,

this the error point:
> create library
> koha-create --create-db libraryname

the correct command (for you) is:
koha-create --create-db --marcflavor=unimarc --zebralang=ru libraryname

more info here:
https://wiki.koha-community.org/wiki/Commands_provided_by_the_Debian_packages

It is not enough for a perferct russian install

Hello

Thank you for all the support. I truly appreciate it.

I am now at the point where I installed koha and I am able to search in
English and German but not yet in Russian.

Katrin has send me a link on how to do it, but unfortunately I don't
understand how to apply it correctly.

Any help will be truly appreciated.

I really appreciate all the help and support.

Johan

We got the russian search to work, i call it like the first edition, we
will test it, most probalby get more help, to maybe improve it, and would
love to give our work back to those who need it.

Thank you so much for all the help and the great wiki.

I most probably will ask more questions in the future!

Johan
