Is there any reason you install versopm 6.0.4? openERP V7 is the LTS and the version people are using now.

The error is about a file library.zip which is zupposed to be in the folder dist.

Hi, thing is theres no DIST folder on the ROOT of openerp-server-6.0.4, then consecuently no library.zip is found, how can i get it, because i just downloaded the package and uncompress it, and then i tried to build it via setup.py.

There's no specific reason i just want to install openERP source to check how it works, and maybe to develop some modules, but i need to install and run it just to get involved, one more thing i wonder if you have some manuals about the use, configuration for DataBase, to get it running please, whats the difference between openERP-web, server and client, i can deduce it, but i need to know when i should use one of them instead of other.
