Broken Pipe error when trying to view module's description

on 3/27/13, 2:08 PM 2,754 views


I have installed OpenERP 7.0, but I have a problem when trying to view the description of some modules (Configuration -> Installed modules).

This is the error I get when I click on some of them:

Does anybody knows why does this happen? Is it a problem with the installation?

Hy, I have the same problem. Have you got some special addons? Did you try to update all the database?
