Error – OpenERP-Web client dies as soon as you log out

Lately, we have been getting below error from the openERP-web client as soon as we log out the console session :

Installing OpenERP 5 on openSuSE 12 servers

December 29th, 2012

OpenERP version 5 won’t work with python 2.7 installed be default on openSuSE 12.1 server. The trick is to download and install python 2.6 as source and install it parallel to default version.

After that, you’ll have two python executables on the system, python (for 2.7) and python2.6 for the outdated version. The 2.6 version will be used to start the openerp server as below :

python2.6  openerp-server.py -r dbuser -w dbpassword &

 

Also, you need to install system wide packages needed by default installation of the openERP system. And you must use python2.6 or easy_install-2.6 to install missing python modules. My system was up and running after installing below python modules :

python modules

You must choose the same python module version numbers, update versions won’t work.

Error with OpenERP web client

November 20th, 2012

After transferring our openERP 5.0.16 server to a new host, we are getting this error message while trying to add an attachment through the web client :

a class that defines __slots__ without defining __getstate__ cannot be pickled

The problem was that the default version of cherrypy was 3.2.2 and the web-server seems to have needed 3.1.2.
You can use  ‘easy_install cherrypy==3.1.2’ to install the required version and now the web-server works fine.

 

Joomla Page Not Found Error with awardspace webhosting

November 3rd, 2012

Hosting Joomla on awardspace servers will probably cause your Joomla site to not direct to pages and articles correctly and you’ll be getting a lot of pages not found errors – “404 Page Not Found”.

Such issues are usually caused by the SEF functionality of Joomla. There are several things you should check in order to fix this:

  • Open your configuration.php file and edit the var $live_site = ‘ ‘; line to match the actual URL of your website. If your website is http://yourdomain.com/joomla/ for example, the line should look like this:

    var $live_site = ‘http://yourdomain.com/joomla/ ‘;

  • Go to the administrative end of your Joomla website -> Global Configuration and make sure that Search Engine Friendly URLs is set to Yes.
  • Also check that Use URL rewriting is set to No. Also in Global Configuration.
  • Make sure you have renamed the htaccess.txt file in your Joomla folder to .htaccess.
  • Edit .htaccess file and comment out Mod_rewrite in use.

If you follow all of the steps above you should have a fully operational Joomla website with the SEF functionality enabled.

Setting nomachine NX client and FreeNX client to start XFCE Desktop

August 18th, 2012

NoMachine NX client and FreeNX will start your GUI as KDE or GNOME. But if you choose custom desktop from configuration menu, you can set the command to ‘startxfce4’. This will start the XFCE desktop instead (if installed).

Installing iFolder 3.8 on OpenSuSE 12.1 (or 11.4)

August 17th, 2012

This is a copy of the original post on http://yourlinuxguy.com/?p=916.

It looks like some people are working very hard out there to try and preserve iFolder for future versions of Opensuse.  To those people (the NoFolder crew, Ravi Kumar, etc.), I’m indebted; I simply would be at a loss without iFolder.  Yes, I use DropBox, and a couple other things, but there’s just nothing like iFolder for complete control over the server and the sync’d content.

But the sad fact is, it has suffered a bit of neglect as of late.  Okay, a LOT of neglect.  And you’re probably here because you have an Opensuse 12.1 (or 11.4) server, and you tried to install iFolder 3.8.x on it, and had some trouble.

Notes: I strongly recommend you see my old post about setting up iFolder 3.8 on Opensuse 11.1 for background and additional detail, as this post will be brief and to-the-point without much supporting detail.  All the work in this doc was performed on the x86_64 version of Opensuse, and was tested on both 12.1 and 11.4.

FIRST, you need a working Apache2 installation with SSL support. Find previous post  if you need help with this.

We need to install below packages :

ifolder3-enterprise-3.8.4.0.11091.1-6.2.x86_64

novell-ifolder-enterprise-plugins-3.8.4.10192.1-6.3.x86_64

And run all 3 configuration scripts and please note that you must use an alternative simias datastore location of /ifolder:

simias-server-setup
ifolder-admin-setup
ifolder-web-setup

NOTE:
When asked for server address, use a fully qualified server address as below :

Change :

Public URL: https://192.168.0.79/simias10

Private URL: https://192.168.0.79/simias10

to

Public URL: https://ifolder01.MyDomainName.com:52443/simias10

Private URL: https://192.168.0.79/simias10

…and now my external clients can connect via the ifolder client, and sync seems to be working.

NOTE 2 : Don’t use default server data folder. I use /home/iFolder/

A note about the next step: If you just stopped here, you’d be able to pull up the /admin page, but not log in; you’d get a red message saying that your password doesn’t match or whatever.  I see this error quite commonly out there…  So let’s change the FlaimWrapper softlink pointer to an existing location:

rm /usr/lib64/simias/web/bin/FlaimWrapper.so
ln -s /usr/lib64/libFlaimWrapper.so.0 /usr/lib64/simias/web/bin/FlaimWrapper.so

And lastly, restart stuff:

rcSuSEfirewall2 restart;rcapache2 stop; rcapache2 start

And that should do it!  Log in at /admin, configure some users, etc., etc., etc.  I’m guessing you are here because you know already how to *use* iFolder, just got stuck installing and configuring it, so I’ll not go into any usage detail.

By the way, the NoFolder.com page has some good troubleshooting tips, but if you follow these steps accurately, and you use the SAME hostname throughout the configuration, you should be fine.

See, it’s not that bad.  And it’s totally worth it.  Enjoy!
;)
