She works hard for the money…. OpenERP CentOS 6.2 Python 2.7.3

21 Apr

Well almost…
Todays time wasting job was OpenERP, not least of which was due to the piss-poor installer, dodgy language (Python… if you want to see libraries done properly see Pearl) and the poor instruction and installation guides provided by OpenERP. (I don’t think I have seen such worthless documentation since the Jasper reports-‘Ultimate’ guide series)
Seriously if you’re going to charge 50 bucks for an ‘ultimate’ guide, then I expect to see such tips as having a two column report broken down into ‘Day’ & ‘Night’, where ‘Night’ always prints on the right even when the’Day’ column is missing. Not some trash about how to position sub-reports on a report page.

However we did finally manage to get OpenERP 6.1.1 installed on CentOS 6.2 with Pearl 2.7.3 .
The final result is quite impressive.

Now if only these people would work on their installation processes and documentation.

      It is a complete nightmare to get installed correctly, as their “support” people said to me:
      “How can we make money if we show how to install the ERP for free, thats why it is called community edition.”
