Hi.  I'm running a local test copy of Odoo v8.

I receive the following error while trying to install POS.  Any ideas?

raise ValueError('External ID not found in the system: %s' % (xmlid))
ParseError: "External ID not found in the system: stock.stock_location_stock" while parsing /opt/odoo/odoo-server/addons/point_of_sale/point_of_sale_data.xml:11, near

Problem Solved.  I had the base_phone app module installed, but did not have the phonenumbers library installed on this server so it was causing all types of problems.

After installing that, all is well.
