error: [Errno 98] Address already in use

I think Openerp Default Port no 8069 used in any other application. Try to change the port the 8069 to any other port no (eg: 7777) and restart the server. And start with http://localhost:7777

This error is due to openerp-service already in use. Just apply the command "ps aux | grep openerp" which will show you the port on which openerp server is in running state. Kill the specific process. Or Try to run openerp-server on different port.

It is not a good / smart way to get some replies from people here.

You could at least post a few words to ask about the error, and say when does it appear, in which context, on which OS, etc...
