Hello Václav,

Regarding 3rd problem (internal error) -- my experience is that this typically occurs when you don't have a valid XML file, for example, a recent error I had was from a missing "<" in a </li> tag and from "&" in pasted text (when I should have had  "&amp;"  etc.)

Subject: [OPEN-ILS-GENERAL] Problems with running Czech in Evergreen

Dear all, 

We have started to test Evergreen - with the implemented localization into Czech - with our students at the Institute of Information Studies and Librarianship at Charles University, Prague, Czech Republic. The outputs from the seminar should include the debugged Czech localization and also manuals in Czech.

However, when trying the Czech localization, we seem to have encountered the following serious problems. The Czech language is in the system but, at the same time, it is missing. As a result, it is not possible to switch to Czech properly.

1st problem found and sorted out - there is a missing definition of Czech in table no. 950

This has been resolved manually:

INSERT INTO config.i18n_locale (code,marc_code,name,description)
    VALUES ('cs-CZ', 'cze', oils_i18n_gettext('cs-CZ', 'Cestina', 'i18n_l', 'name'),
        oils_i18n_gettext('cs-CZ', 'Cesky jazyk', 'i18n_l', 'description'));

2nd problem found:

When loading Czech into the database:

ERROR:  duplicate key violates unique constraint "i18n_identity"

3rd problem (or its symptom) found - we do not have a functional Czech OPAC - after switching to Czech we see (instead of the OPAC):

The server encountered an internal error or misconfiguration and was unable to complete your request.

And, subsequently, in the log:

4th problem - staff client in Czech is not functional - when switching to Czech the staff client is in Czech, however, after loading xul the following dialog appears:

fmall.js: Type Error: document.getElementById("offlineStrings") has no properties

This dialog is followed by:

XML Parsing Error: undefined entity
Line Number 30, Column 1:<window id="menu_frame_win"
^            <tab id="tab_1" 
label="&staff.chrome.menu_frame_overlay.tab1.label;" hidden="true" /> ------------------------^<menu id="main.menu.file" 
accesskey="&staff.main.menu.file.accesskey;" > ^

Could you please help us how to make Czech work  :-) ? All of the other languages - French, Armenian, Canadian English and English - work well...

Thank you in advance for any help provided!
