OpenERP 6.0.3 appliance with addons_path and openerp-update with community branches

OpenERP Appliance Forum

OpenERP 6.0.3 Appliance is now available for sale. It is based on Turnkey Linux Library 11.3 (Ubuntu 10.04) and  includes an addons_path configuration in /etc/openerp-server.conf and the possibility of adding bzr branches to openerp-update (like  i.e. magentoerpconnect and openerp-spain, both of them already downloaded but only the former one included in addons_path). Thanks Angel Moya from Domatix for these two suggestions. Further details in openerp-update’s report.

The desktop appliance provides a GUI Desktop to developers, testers and newbies, while the server appliance is more suitable for production and cloud computing.

OpenERP source code is update-able by running openerp-update command inside ‘openerp’ linux acount.
