Helllo There..


I just want to know that like in Windows OS, we have installable files, setup.exe, and we know where databses go and where all files are created i.e. C://programfiles etc....

OK.... It seems and works fine for me if I install soruce files of openerp7 on Ubuntu becuse I know which directories I have created, which users, and where are all files stored and in which manner etc....



When I installed a package today i.e. debian package and called it from :


echo "deb http://nightly.openerp.com/7.0/nightly/deb/ ./" >> /etc/apt/sources.list

and then updated my list after installing openerp..... Openerp, then, was installed and all things took place itself becasue debian package had all the needed commands for dependies and et.all...

I just want to know that

What is directory structure hierarchy of Openerp(Odoo) in Ubuntu... In which folders files go and how can they be accessed..(server files, addons, database files, and all stuff.. services etc that we have in windows).. And how can we make good edits of codes ...


This is am asking Specifically for DEBIAN AND RPM PACKAGES..Becasue I know they are installed into the system and I have to look for each file separately from dpkg and ofcourse takes time and I am on wrong way...




Thanks a lot

There are various ways to show the contents of a .deb package and where each file is put, for example try "dpkg -c package.deb", and something similar exists surely for rmp too.
