Hello, i've setup OpenERP on a Synology NAS, i have many errors each time due to the python lib xlrd not setup, but i can't find a way to set it up on my NAS, i can't find a package for it Anyone knows this issue and managed to solve it please?



Hi, i think you dont have the xlrd library installed in your system. Its a Library for developers to extract data from Microsoft Excel (tm) spreadsheet files

In linux, you can install this by

sudo apt-get update

sudo apt-get upgrade

sudo apt-get install xlrd

Hello, thanks for your reply, are you sure i can use sudo apt-get on a synology? can't test it now will have to wait tonight
