Problem installing version 8 with Debian package

I'm trying to install OpenERP trunk using the deb package from nightly builds. The v7 package works great and creates a server script that autostarts and everything. Has anyone had success with the trunk package? I'm using Vagrant as a virtual machine and it looks to be a permissions issue to start the server, but given that the v7 package works perfectly, I can't see how that would be the case.

I know that the trunk package may not be perfected yet given the unrealeased status of V8, I just wanted to see if anyone else had run into the same problem or had a fix.

I have the same problem, when I install the version 7 it works perfect but with version master the following error occurs after the installation is done:

The procedure used is as follows:

Packages, tarballs and installers

    Debian packages

    Add this apt repository to your /etc/apt/sources.list file

    deb ./

    Then type:

    $ sudo apt-get update
    $ sudo apt-get install openerp

With version 8 is not possible to perform this procedure because in the file Packages.gz does not exist.

No. I too noticed that the given repository didn't work for trunk (if you follow the link they provide you'll see why). I tried a few times but then settled with github ... and by the way ... I like it that way. Because now I can with a help of git see what changes were done. I assume the Debian package will be available once the v8 is stable.
