Installing OpenERP (aka TinyERP)
Depending on dependencies...
The last few days at work I played around with installing OpenERP (which was born as TinyERP). It's a pain. Instructions are confusing, partially non-existing, sometimes misleading. Wow, Zope installation is actually child's play against this (even taking into account that I have a few years more experience with Zope).
Part of the odyssey was a binary installer for Mac OS X PowerPC (great idea for trying something out!) who used Python 2.3, even though in the end the product wouldn't actually run with Python 2.3. Then came a manual install on Mac OS X Intel 10.4 where at some random point I chose the newer PostgreSQL 8.3 - but current production TinyERP/OpenERP doesn't work with that. In the end I switched to installing on a virtual machine image with OpenBSD as the guest OS - if I mess that up it's easier to throw away. I've put my notes on my wiki (work in progress, not yet done, YMMV, etc. etc.).
Maybe I should add that contrary to source install on unix-derived systems, the windows binary installers actually worked fine, but then I don't really want to do anything on windows.

I am sorry if you have any problems with the installation of OpenERP on Mac OS X, but If you want, you can send bug reports to the bugtracker of LaunchPad, ( OpenERP is hosted on LaunchPad with Bazaar )
I don't think outdated information in the wiki is something that requires a bug report in Launchpad. Instead I just created an account in the wiki and corrected the information about the required Python and PostgreSQL versions.
I'll write more about the outcome of my OpenERP adventure in a further post.
