The Wakaba and Kareha support thread, part 3 (464)

1 Name: !WAHa.06x36 : 2011-01-07 09:57 ID:eLRTX7Vk [Del]

This thread is for all your simple questions about installing and running Wakaba or Kareha, that just require quick answers. Please don't create new threads for issues like that, post them in here instead.

Before posting, check that the question has not already been answered in this thread, or in the previous two threads:

Also check the documentation: http://wakaba.c3.cx/docs/docs.html

There is also a setup guide by Anon: http://wiki.iiichan.net/index.php?title=Wakaba_and_Kareha_Setup_Guide

Questions about "500 Internal Server Errors" go in this thread: http://wakaba.c3.cx/sup/kareha.pl/1109033191/

Hello!
I'm trying to incorporate wakaba into my SMF page (php forum).
All I'm trying to figure out is how to add this
[code]<?php
//Require header.php
require('../header.php');
?>[/code]
to all of the topic .html files generated. the header.php being required is the header for my forum and is designed to be called as shown. this works in any standard php page. can this work in the perl system?
picture is of a php page fetching the forum header and footer and fetching wakaba.html in the middle. replying to topics redirects to the individual topic html.

456 Name: Anonymous : 2014-03-09 20:49 ID:VpK7hCYn [Del]

I've managed to change the generated page extensions to .php and fetch my form header, but the reply pages (ie: /res/11.php) will not load. the head will load but the body won't and the page is just left blank.
anyone have some insight for me?

457 Name: Anonymous : 2014-03-09 20:56 ID:VpK7hCYn [Del]

I should mention that my main wakaba.php page generated by the wakaba.pl file works just fine, it's just the pages that are linked via "reply"

Wrong section, sorry

460 Name: Anonymous : 2014-04-09 23:04 ID:P8tB4yXX [Del]

heres something for anyone interested in redis/perl. i've found that if your imageboard has a lot of images, the find_md5 function gets slower and slower. i've basically loaded all of the hashes as keys in redis and use it to perform the check, its a lot faster. the key is imageboardname:hash and the values are thread,post,file

this isnt a standard patch, my kareha setup is extremely different from stock (i've split all the posting functions from the main script and run that part in memory) but its only a few changes

How much of an improvement would something like this bring to Wakaba? I've been thinking of throwing memcache or redis support on it and moving some of the static cache to a ramdisk for faster IO but haven't bothered because I have no idea if it would be worth it or not.

462 Name: Anonymous : 2014-04-10 09:44 ID:P8tB4yXX [Del]

>>461 i'm not familiar with wakaba but if it keeps its information in a database then there won't be much improvement. the problem with kareha was it basically looped through a giant log file every time it checked a hash.

i do keep cache files for phpbb in tmpfs, you may see some improvement. it's hard to tell though since linux caches stuff into memory anyway

463 Name: Anonymous : 2014-04-11 09:19 ID:OGXnEN+6 [Del]

>>462
Do you know if dynamically building a JSON reponse from a DB cache like redis or memcache every time a user sends a GET request would be any faster or slower than writing to JSON files on a ramdisk every time they're updated? I'm tempted to do both on a clean Wakaba installation and benchmark them, but even then I have no idea how to benchmark something like that properly.

464 Name: Anonymous : 2014-04-16 20:53 ID:P8tB4yXX [Del]

>>463 if i were to do that i'd use elasticsearch as the backend and just ditch the database. it natively outputs json from lucene indexes, supports updates etc.

i've contemplated doing something like this myself

The Archive Browser (141)

1 Name: !WAHa.06x36 : 2012-03-20 18:00 ID:rFsOye/G [Del]

So, along with the release of The Unarchiver 3.0 comes another new things: The Archive Browser. This is the often-requested version that lets you browse archives and preview their contents before extracting. However, since this is not a program that I personally need, this one will actually cost a few dollars. Buy it if this is what you really need, or buy it if you want to support the development of The Unarchiver!

http://itunes.apple.com/app/the-archive-browser/id510232205?mt=12&ls=1
http://archivebrowser.c3.cx/

For now, bug reports and feature requests can go on the The Unarchiver bug tracker:

http://code.google.com/p/theunarchiver/issues/list

It is much better to post them there than in this thread, because I tend to forget things that are not on the bug tracker.

After deleting The Archive Browser (through Launchpad) THE WHOLE APPLICATION SUPPORT FOLDER DISAPPEARS, DAMMIT! How is this even possible (sandboxing, anyone?). Now that's what I call a critical bug!

That would be an OS X bug. The Archive Browser can not do that, sandboxed or not.

just bought from the Mac App store, the sandbox is annoying, can i change to the non-sandbox version?

138 Name: Steve : 2014-03-05 13:22 ID:DcTNBYHV [Del]

I'm one of the folks who would love to be able to edit a file in an archive and have it saved back in the archive file. As it stands, I can do that, and see the edit has been saved in the quick-view, but when I close the archive and open it again, only the original file is there. All I want to do with this is update my password file and keep it encrypted, without having to extract, edit, encrypt, then delete the non-encrypted file. Thanks!

139 Name: Harald : 2014-04-03 08:24 ID:rFdV/kA/ [Del]

OMG I will be estatic if you can help me. I had a sociopath that I had only know for4 yrs, steal and demolish the life I had built for 45 years. He took an external hard rive with man;y many irreplaceable memories. Most of which occurred before I met him. Children graduating, home runs, alls stars, equestrian state finals. My daughter completing the 2 mil run on graduation from BMT at Lackand AirForce base. However, I have a stack of about 20 HP disks that are in an encrypted backup. many of these pictures and mementoes are on these disks. Will Your program the "Unichiver" have a chance of restoring these disks to readable file formats?

Not yet, but i am working on it, slowly.

Hmm. Depends. Do you know which format they are, and what the password is?

The Unarchiver, part 2 (381)

As the previous thread filled up, here is part 2 of the The Unarchiver thread.

It is much better to post bugs on the bug tracker, rather than in this thread! Anything posted on the bug tracker has much less chance of being forgotten by me!

So, post bugs here: http://code.google.com/p/theunarchiver/issues/list

Also, remember that if you post a bug about a file that is not work, you must also post the file itself, or else there is nothing I can do about it!

I'm not entirely sure what you are trying to do. If you bought it on the App Store, it should be in Applications, and you can just click it there to start it. Is there any problem if you do that?

Shouldn't have been. File an issue on the bug tracker to remind me to check into if something has gone wrong with that.

Some time ago I've translated Wakaba's interface into my native language (Ukrainian). Since German and Japanese translations were already included in the distribution, I thought you might want to add another one.

What is the 'official policy' regarding translations? If you are willing to add them, I can submit at least one more one (Polish).

Xee, part 2 (546)

1 Name: !WAHa.06x36 : 2009-07-22 10:34 ID:J9qvJKxH [Del]

This thread is for questions and discussion about Xee. Before posting, check that the question has not already been answered in this thread, or in the previous thread: http://wakaba.c3.cx/sup/kareha.pl/1122405906/

There is also a bug tracker for Xee here: http://code.google.com/p/xee/issues/list

If you have a bug to report, it is better to post it on the bug tracker if you can, so it will not be forgotten.

10.7 is not really recommended. The functionality Xee3 needs seems to not be quite well working on it. It might be at least a little bit better on later OS X versions.

I tried to use see to check a huge amount of pics on a external hard drive, and copy the good ones locally
if you use copy to function, nothing happens?? Bug#1
if you scroll now to the next picture, xee hangs up and restarts! Bug#2
There is no thumbnail possibility?

Hope to fix that, otherwise i will give my impressions to App Store and rate this

Have been using Xee for years and as I was setting up a new computer I found Xee on the app store. Great!

Is there any way of turning off the sandbox mode? Either that or can I swap for the "regular" version?

I have a bought version of Xee (not from the app store) and have a couple of requests.

1) I would love a way to jump straight to a specific photo by number. I have had situations where a Xee crashed, or I logged out, and I wanted to go to a specific photo by number (i.e. 1243 of 7000) in a folder but there seems no way.

2) A "check for updates" button would be great.

Is there a way to browse between .zip files?

I read comics that are archived as .zip files and it'd be nice if I could just directly move to the next .zip file in the directory after I've gotten to the last image instead of having to open it separately.

Archives.app (32)

1 Name: !WAHa.06x36 : 2012-10-10 15:00 ID:hvAY9RLB [Del]

Well, another addition to the The Unarchiver family of programs has been released: Archives for iOS.

It is available here: http://itunes.apple.com/app/archives/id562790811?ls=1&mt=8
And the homepage is here: http://archives.c3.cx/

It's much like The Archive Browser, but for iOS. It lets you browse and preview the contents of archives on the iPhone and iPad, and lets you open files in other apps if you have any installed that handle a particular file type.

If there are bug reports or feature requests, post them on the The Unarchiver bug tracker: http://code.google.com/p/theunarchiver/issues/list

(It's better to post them there than in this thread, because if they are posted in here I might forget about them.)

Since I'm not entirely sure how people will want to use this program, I was thinking of putting up some possible improvements I could make, and let people say which one says good on the bug tracker. I will post again once I have that set up.

Post too long. Click to view the whole post or the thread page.

I forgot to announce it earlier, but 1.4 is out, with mostly the same fixes as the earlier The Unarchiver release:

  • Added support for XIP files.
  • Fixed some crashes and unsupported files for RAR.
  • Better support for RAR Mac OS X SFX files.
  • Fixed crashes for certain CAB and PDF files.
  • Added support for comments in Amiga LhA files.

And now I have, and Apple approved it in record time, so I am going to release this ahead of new updates for The Unarchiver and The Archive Browser. Those will be coming, though.

Changes are:

  • Updated visual design for iOS 7.
  • Add support for PMA files.
  • Better support for broken Zip files.
  • Fix bugs in handling of NSIS and MSI files.

500 Internal Server Error (401)

Since 500 Internal Server Errors aren't ever really caused by Wakaba or Kareha themselves, but are still a big problem for lots of people, I'm setting up this thread to discuss various problems and solutions related to them.

392 Name: Anonymous : 2013-01-30 01:48 ID:ceIAHv+j [Del]

Turns out I'd disabled the error log and forgotten about it. With the error log on, it tells me:

for some reason, no perl scripts are working for me.

tried a simple test script as well, using the hashbang my host says to use, although I've tried many different hashbangs, and I've tried all the scripts at permissions 755 and 777

#!/usr/bin/perlml

print "Content-Type: text/html\n\n";
print "<html><body><h1>Perl is working!</h1></body></html>";

When I attempt to access the .pl, any of them, my browsers want to download the file and thats it. I am assuming that somehow I am flubbing up the executable, but I haven't found any info yet.

are you hosting this yourself? if yes, i have no idea what's wrong (except maybe the perl dir being incorrect).
else: check that you are allowed to perl (check the host's website (maybe you'll find something in the FAQ or packet options), maybe send the support an email); check perl dir is correct

Sounds like an OS X bug, really, it should not even be possible for any program to hang the system like that.

I just got the Cnet info of the new upgrade. Nowhere does it say that you have just instigated to PAY program. I know it's not much money.....but just wondering WHY and why no where does it state that Xtee is now a pay program.

Hi

Many thanks for Xee, a nice application. But - how do change the zoom increment? I can't find it anywhere. I like 0.1 zoom increment, the default is too high.

Use touch zooming, or rebind the keys to use the fine zoom commands instead.

When I open an image by double clicking it in Finder, then a little flash of the image appears on the screen right after the image has been loaded. I was wondering if it's possible to turn this off in the preference file?

Since I put it into testing over at the ABe board already, I might as well make a thread here to discuss my latest project.

http://wakaba.c3.cx/notes/notes.pl

In a nutshell, it's a script for putting notes on images. This is from an idea of whispers', about collaborative translation - several people can work on a translation by creating and editing notes for text on a comic page. There are probably other uses too, if someone can be bothered to think about them.

It's definitely not done yet, but it's open for public scrutiny for bug testing and to gather ideas for features it needs to be useful. Some signs of it being unfinished are:

  • No deletion of notes, and no reverting to older versions.
  • Lack of other unspecified backend features (for instance, discussion threads for each image)
  • It would be useful to have differently coloured notes, but that's not done yet.

Perhaps mouseover reveal after a timeout?

Imagine if this were just a Firefox plugin so that you could do it to any image on the entire internets without having to leave the site...

we have incorporated notes.pl into one of our wakaba boards. check it out here: www.wtfux.org/cams/

I think this script is pretty damn cool and I'd hate to necropost. Oh well, I wanted to know if you have to use a new SQL DB for each install of Notes? Notes isn't quite that documented it seems.

I'm guessing that you need to get in a browser and head to
.../notes.pl just like .../wakaba.pl where it then creates the HTML everyone can view?

I hope I'm right.

This is a cool script and I could eventually find a bunch of uses for it.

Just asking a bunch of stupid questions for a PDF I'm writing. so I may have more noob questions.
