Forum OpenACS Development: recurring events broken in (HEAD) calendar

Request notifications

hi!

I know head is not guranteed now :) but could use some help to debug a problem in the calendar.

Is there anyone here playing with HEAD and discovered some problems with creating recurring events in the calendar.

Here is the error report. I am not sure what the !>>>! in the error below is, since I can't find that anywhere in the sources.

Thanks for any clues! /Mohan

ok! before wasting anyone's time - It would have helped a lot if I followed the install instructions very very carefully :)

NLS_LANG was not set properly and messed up the date formats. I fixed that, and all is well now.

Thanks

Mohan, incidentally, that weird "!>>>!" symbol is just your Oracle driver attempting to tell you at what point in the SQL the error occurred. If you grep you'll find the string in the ora8.c driver code.
