I tried Install v 8.0 via
deb nightly auto install via apt-get OR
git clone manually.

install new DB without demodata in DE works
some warings: WARNING test_DB openerp.addons.base.ir.ir_translation: module web_tests: no translation for language de

login is possible
but i cant load jpg. only png.

If I try to build a new database with demodata in EN or DE this error comes:


 File "/usr/local/lib/python2.7/dist-packages/Pillow-2.5.3-py2.7-linux-x86_64.egg/PIL/Image.py", line 413, in _getdecoder
    raise IOError("decoder %s not available" % decoder_name)
ParseError: "decoder jpeg not available" while parsing /opt/openerp/odoo/openerp/addons/base/base_demo.xml:32, near
<record id="user_demo" model="res.users">
            <field name="partner_id" ref="base.partner_demo"/>
            <field name="login">demo</field>

            <field name="signature">--

            <field name="company_id" ref="main_company"/>
            <field name="groups_id" eval="[(6,0,[ref('base.group_user'), ref('base.group_partner_manager')])]"/>
            <field name="image" type="base64" file="base/static/img/user_demo-image.jpg"/>

I might get it done:

pip uninstall PIL

pip install pillow

Or upgrade pillow
$ sudo pip install pillow --upgrade
