Hi. I'm trying to set up my first invenio instance for evaluation at my university. But every method I tried ends with unresolved dependencies with pipenv. This happens both under debian10/python7 Ubuntu20.04/python7 and Ubuntu18.04/python6 (tutorial ova) . Unfortunately I have no previous experience with pipenv and therefore I am not sure how to solve the problem.
If someone could help me over this barrier it would help me a lot.

Hello Guys,

We have stucked in the middle of a fresh Invenio RDM Installation process.
Could anyone in this room could help us?

My colleague sent me how he is trying the installation:

Hi all! I don't know if its's the right place (I hope). I currently trying to install an invenio-rdm instance on one of our linux servers. I could install the invenio-cli, init the rdm project, and even install it (with --pre and --development), but after whether I try run, servicesor containers I get an error, saying AttributeError: 'NoneType' object has no attribute 'group'. Im running on python 3.6.9 with pip 20.3.1, and invenio-cli 0.19.4 . Can someone help me, what have I missed? Thank you!

We are really thank you for your help.

I'm new to invenio application and I want your assistance to repair an existing installation that crashes, when I try to repair the database.
I get EMERGENCY: Errors found. You should check consistency of the idxWORD09F - idxWORD09R tables.
Running 'bibindex --repair' is recommended.
can you assist me to finding a solution to this problem
@mams84_gitlab: I fear you'll not get too much help on invenio 1.x anymore.
Anyway, it tries ot tell you that one of your indices is broken. You should log in to the console of your server and initiate as it tells you bibindex --repair. (Usually, bibindex lives in /opt/invenio/bin) This will add a job to your bibsched. In case this one is on halt (manual mode) you may run it from there using R short cut. (Open the scheduler by just calling it via bibsched. Mind that you usually need to be the same user as the invenio user to do all this stuff, so sudo or su will be required, depending on your setup.)
the interesting question will be why your index broke. usually it's quite stable and I didn't see this for ages. However, nothing helps against a full hard drive e.g.
Zoë Hester
We had to index again when we restored DB, load huge amount of data while index was running, shutdown and restart while bibindex is running (always stop bibsched .

Hi ) Where get we get Russian translation files?
Alexander Wagner
@vit-tucek I am not aware of a full documentation. probably, the most extensive one can be found in the search guide (/help/search-guide on your instance.) basically, however, you can use the name of your indices or logical fields : value. single quoted ('') searches substring, duble quotes ('" "') search phrase, / / allow for regular expressions. the usual boolean operators apply (and, or, not) and can be expressed by +, | and -respectively. note that the search engine behaves sometimes a bit strange wrt not. You can use brackets (( ), but be aware that the search engine does not like superflous brackets. so: (a and b) will not work as expected. hth.

What kind of error it can be?
