Your odoo service is in auto-start.  If you are using Ubuntu you can remove the autostart using the instruction here.

Try it.. But error occured as follows, sudo update-rc.d tomcat disable

tomcat is NOT the name of your service. You need to find out what is odoo's service name. It is usually placed in /etc/init.d/ folder.

I find a odoo-server file in /etc/init.d Is'nt it??

Most probably. I wouldn't be able to confirm 100% it depends on how your environment is set-up for the first time. Try to disable it and see if you still get the address conflict issue. If it is not the right service, you can enable it again using sudo update.rc-d XXXX enable

One or more process of Odoo must be running behind... It happens when the previous process is not stopped properly before restarting the new one..

Try this comand in the Terminal:

ps xa | grep openerp-server

this command will list out all the process running for the server, if you find more than one process, you can terminate that process, using

kill -9 [process_ID]
