I've made changes in addons/base/res/res_partner_view.xml and have error in this file. When I try login into OpenErp I get error about invalid XML architecture.

I get back to original file, but still cann't login into OpenERP. I know that i should upgrdae module to apply changes in XML view, but cann't do it because of don't have access to system.

From the backend (database).. uninstall the module n then try to log... In that way there are chances to let you know where n which is creating the problem...

OK, first thing first... NEVER modify the core. You have to create a new module that extends either the module or view you need to modify. But never modify the core since it will make it harder to maintain (for instance, updating the core)

Now, you have to revert the changes you made, then create a new module that extends the model or view with the functionality you need

Found that I should wait for message in log file

OpenERP server is running, waiting for connections

But after doing all of this I can't login into the system, it's loading and loading

Get the original file, as you did, and reinstall (update) the base module from the command line:

openerp-server -u base

Thanks for your answer. I tried this, but when I run this command it's seems like it working and nothing happened, just blinking cursor under command
