Revision 255 - (show annotations)
Tue Mar 9 12:17:05 2004 UTC (15 years, 9 months ago) by dpavlin
File size: 4336 byte(s)
ported r248:252 from hidra branch:

r248: much improved installation instructions, especially for Debian
      GNU/Linux distributions
r249: changed use of Spreadsheet::ParseExcel and MARC to require/import so
      that dependency on those modules can be resolved in runtime.
r250: finished installation documentation
r251: removing dependency on HTML::Parser would ease installation
r252: smaller eval{} fiexes. eval{} logic should really move to
      parse_format.pm

1 INSTALL INSTRUCTIONS
2
3 Feel free to contact me via e-mail to dpavlin@rot13.org if those instructions
4 don't work for you.
5
6 1. You will need RDBMS (relational database management system) for index
7 files. PostgreSQL and SQLite are tested and supported.
8
9 Using any other database is quite easy, and involves editing of
10 dbi_* parameters in global.conf [global] section (which you want
11 to do anyway to specify user and password to connect to database).
12
13 If you use PostgreSQL, you have to first create database:
14
15 $ createdb webpac
16 CREATE DATABASE
17
18 If using SQLite, just specify file which SQLite will use (in global.conf)
19 like this:
20
21 dbi_dbd=SQLite
22 dbi_dsn=dbname=/data/webpac/index.sqlite
23
24 Tables for index(es) will be created automatically on first run. If you
25 change data for index often, you might want to drop and re-create database
26 to erase tables for indexes which are removed.
27
28 SQLite can be quite faster than PostgreSQL (for reference see SQLite
29 site: http://www.hwaci.com/sw/sqlite/speed.html). Since WebPAC doesn't
30 use advanced database facilities of PostgreSQL you would probably be
31 better off with SQLite if you don't have PostgreSQL already installed.
32
33 If you are using SQLite, there is no need to specify dbi_user or dbi_pass.
34 So, just leave them like this:
35
36 dbi_user=""
37 dbi_passwd=""
38
39 If you specify dbi_user and than try to index using different user,
40 you won't be able to write into database.
41
42 2. Use CPAN shell to install modules used:
43
44 $ sudo cpan
45 cpan> install module_name
46
47 Modules which are needed:
48
49 Text::Unaccent version 1.02 or higher, you might need
50 to get this one from
51 http://savannah.nongnu.org/projects/unac/
52 Config::IniFiles
53 DBD::Pg or some other DBD driver like DBD::SQLite
54 CGI::Application
55 HTML::Pager
56 HTML::Template
57 HTML::FillInForm
58 SWISH
59 SWISH::Fork and of course, swish-e executable
60 XML::Simple
61 Text::Iconv
62 TDB_File
63 HTML::Entities (part of HTML::Parser)
64
65 CPAN shell will also download some more modules to satisfy dependencies.
66
67
68 If you plan to use M$ Excel files for import (type=excel), you will need:
69
70 Spreadsheet::ParseExcel
71
72 If you plan to use import from MARC files you will also need
73
74 MARC
75
76
77 2.1 Installation on Debian GNU/Linux
78
79 You will need following packages to get started:
80
81 perl
82 swish-e
83
84 and all additional packages which are dependencies.
85
86 You also don't have to install all CPAN modules manually. Just use
87 following Debian packages:
88
89 libtext-unaccent-perl
90 libconfig-inifiles-perl
91 libdbd-pg-perl or some other DBD driver
92 libdbd-sqlite-perl like DBD::SQLite
93 libhtml-template-perl
94 libxml-simple-perl
95 libtext-iconv-perl
96 tdb-dev (for TDB_File module later)
97 libhtml-parser-perl
98
99 and install following packages by hand from CPAN
100 because they are not part of Debian distribution:
101
102 CGI::Application
103 HTML::Pager
104 HTML::FillInForm
105 SWISH
106 SWISH::Fork
107
108 and optionally some of those modules:
109
110 Spreadsheet::ParseExcel
111 MARC
112
113 For compilation of OpenIsis in next step, you will also need following
114 packages:
115
116 make
117 gcc
118 libc-dev
119
120 3. You will need OpenIsis if you are using ISIS as an import format.
121 Currently, WebPAC uses OpenIsis 0.9.0 which *HAVE TO BE PATCHED*
122 with special patch so that perl module OpenIsis.pm have close call
123 (because there is hard-limit of 32 ISIS files in OpenIsis.pm, and that
124 is too low for our use).
125
126 You can do that yourself, or if you did checkout of our subversion repository
127 you will already have latest OpenIsis in webpac/openisis/ directory.
128
129 If you want to do it yourself, first get OpenIsis from:
130 http://openisis.org/Doc/GetIt
131
132 Then get patch for close from:
133 http://www.rot13.org/~dpavlin/projects/openisis-0.9.0-perl_close.diff
134
135 Unpack OpenIsis archive and apply patch -p0 to source tree.
136
137 Eater way, now you got OpenIsis 0.9.0 with close support for perl. So,
138 first compile C parts:
139
140 make
141
142 And then compile perl module and install it:
143
144 make perl
145 cd perl
146 sudo make install
147
148 Since you need development tools on target machine to compile OpenIsis,
149 you might want to compile it on another machine and just copy perl module.
150
151 4. edit global.conf and all2xml.conf to suit your needs. Comments inside
152 those files should help get you started.
