When I run OpenERP Server I always see this error message in the terminal window:

/usr/local/lib/python2.6/dist-packages/Babel-0.9.6-py2.6.egg/babel/__init__.py:33: UserWarning: Module openerp was already imported from /home/merlin/openerp7/7.0/server/openerp/__init__.pyc, but /usr/local/lib/python2.6/dist-packages/openerp-7.0-py2.6.egg is being added to sys.path from pkg_resources import get_distribution, ResolutionError

How to solve this problem?

I have tried updating all my OS as well as checked out the latest code of OpenERP. But to no avail. I am running Ubuntu 10.04 LTS and OpenERP 7.0.

OpenERP is installed twice :

  1. /home/merlin/openerp7/7.0/server/
  2. /usr/local/lib/python2.6/dist-packages/openerp-7.0-py2.6.egg

Remove the wrong one and you won't get the error message.

Ok that is right. But I am not able to delete the package here: /usr/local/lib/python2.6/dist-packages/openerp-7.0-py2.6.egg. Will this error have any impact on OpenERP and its performance?

I got a similar error while running openupgrade. I got past it by installing virtualenv and running the openupgrade script in its own isolated environment.
