How to get the trunk version from launchpad.

I want to explain you how to get the trunk version of OpenERP from Launchpad with Bazaar.

For the community, if you want to get the source, there is a public access to the repository.
$> mkdir projects
$> cd projects

Get a clone of each repository

$> bzr clone lp:~openerp/openobject-server/trunk server
$> bzr clone lp:~openerp/openobject-client/trunk client
$> bzr clone lp:~openerp/openobject-client-web/trunk client-web
$> bzr clone lp:~openerp/openobject-addons/trunk addons

Link the addons to the server

$> ln -s addons/* server/bin/addons

If you want to get a clone of the extra-addons repository, you can execute this command

$> bzr clone lp:~openerp-commiter/openobject-addons/trunk-extra-addons extra-addons

Cool, you have the last version of the trunk !

With the latest trunk, there is no need to put addons under the `bin` directory. Now you can put addons separate. Start OpenERP server like this:

$ ./ --addons-path=/path/to/my/addons

The `bin/addons` will be considered as default addons directory which can be overriden by the `/path/to/my/addons/'. That is if an addon exists in `bin/addons` as well as `/path/to/my/addons` (custom path) the later one will be given preference over the `bin/addons` (default path). said...

Would this fix some of the errors i am running in to? and would you be able to have one-on-one chat with me about OpenERP?

You can use the forum of OpenERP if you have a question !

... Then update your local branches by running

$> bzr pull

in the each project directory.
