Thanks ashkulz it was GEB that caused the problem. Problem resolved

Well, now, you know which program is going to be sitting on the shelf, so to speak!

Tells us how you make out exploring impserve! From my point of view, were the plugins easy to install and did they do the job right?

If you get stuck, there may be a work around, given the EBW1150's internal browser is somewhat limited and there are many complex (including poorly coded!) websites out there. We've probably been there, done that, so just ask!

Enjoy!

Given all the enthusiasm (particularly comments indicating impserve may be superior to the ebookwise Librarian), I finally talked myself into trying it with the following disappointing results:

impserve -a 127.0.0.1 -p 9090 shelf
Loaded plugin: AdjustHtml
Loaded plugin: AdjustQueryString
impserve 0.7: starting server on 127.0.0.1:9090
127.0.0.1 - - [22/Sep/2008 20:19:00] Error encountered while processing the request:\'NoneType' object has no attribute 'id'

Since my knowledge of Python barely extends beyond the ability to spell it, is anyone able to shed any light on my problem.

Thanks,
Gene

GeneS: looks like you have a corrupt .IMP file in your shelf folder. Can you move all the books somewhere else and add it one-by-one to find out which one is causing the problem?

BTW, you don't need to pass in command line parameters: the defaults are good enough, so you can just double click on the EXE.

EDIT: I've committed a fix which should ignore such files. Can you download the latest source code (click on snapshot - zip) and test it using python src/impserve.py?

I just tried the application and it is SWEET! My daughters 1150 is now

I've just integrated impbuild with my BookCreator tool. This is by far the best IMP creation combo I've found yet.

The contributions ashkulz and you have made are filling in a huge void the 1150 had.
Thanks!

Ashkulz:
I now get to see what others are talking about ... Great piece of work.
I found and removed the corrupt file (it was a 0-byte file). Also tested the fix you provided. Worked like a charm
Are there any plans to incorporate the fix into the Windows .exe version?

Now, on to trying out some of Nick's plug-ins.

Thanks for the work you and Nick have put into this.

Changes in ebookutils-0.8:
  1. fix crash when invalid .IMP encountered in bookshelf
  2. added sample content homepage and some sample ebooks

The sample homepage is very minimalistic. Please take care not to overwrite your changes when you upgrade in future!

Also something strange about the current verions (v8).

I can go to my online book shelf just fine, but to get to the "content" index.html to vist web pages, I have to press the "update now" button.

NOT the "bookstore" option.

If i press bookstore it goes into a infinite loop tring to comunicate with the ebook network.

I can then press the update option and it goes to the index just fine.

Before my crash ( had to restore my computer form scratch ), I could press the bookstore to get online.

Just mentioning it.

The impserve.exe executable, when double clicked, worked for me.

Try it again after rebooting your reader, perhaps it had a brain-freeze or something...

BTW, how did you start that session that only allowed the Update Now button to work instead of the directory icon?

I had started impserv as a windows service at that time.

now that being said, dont you just love flaky people who cannt even reproduce their own error!? rofl

I rebooted my pc and reset my ebook and alls working well now .. i can access content via pressing my directory button etc.

My only remaining question is how to change / add a directory for books to be in when starting impserv as a windows service?

Ive tried a couple of things I thought would work, but it didnt rofl.

Any help / suggestions would be very welcome.

I tried changing this line:

reg add HKLM\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\impserve\Pa rameters /v AppDirectory /d "\"%~dp0\"" /f

to add a directory .. should I be modifing this one?

reg add HKLM\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\impserve\Pa rameters /v Application /d "\"%~dp0impserve.exe\"" /f

instead? and if so how would I change it?

I want to add in this directory to be searched:
C:\Documents and Settings\Larry\My Documents\Ebooks\Imp format books\

It has multiple directorys with a bunch of books ( each seperate directory is a authors name with their books in it )

Yes, I would like to know as well!

I haven't had much success using the windows service yet. My plugins don't work well in that configuration so I'll be re-vamping them again, if it's possible to get this working!

I just use a batch file for now with my preferred library location (as do you).

Askyn, these are great questions, so keep asking! (he, he, pun intended)

It's pretty simple, you should change this line:
Code:
reg add HKLM\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\impserve\Parameters /v AppParameters /d "-l \"%~dp0\impserve.log\"" /f
to
Code:
reg add HKLM\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\impserve\Parameters /v AppParameters /d "\"YOURDIRGOESHERE\" -l \"%~dp0\impserve.log\"" /f
The \" is required as the directory in which you install may have spaces...

Well, you wanted to do an overhaul of the plugins anyway, didn't you? So now's your chance

Using version 8.
I'm experiencing the same circumstances as Askyn. To access the web, I first have to access the "online bookshelf". Following that, I must press Menu > Update_Now (pressing "Bookstore" creates an infinite search state). If if just go to the menu bar without first accessing my bookshelf, the reader goes into an infinite search for connection regardless of whether I press "Bookstore" or "Update Now." Apparently, the "Update Now" button only works if the reader is already connected to the server.
