I have installed OpenERP 8 thru nightlies and server will start but, I am getting an error message :

CRITICAL ? openerp.modules.module: Couldn't load module web CRITICAL ? openerp.modules.module: No module named pyPdf ERROR ? openerp.service.server: Failed to load server-wide module web. The web module is provided by the addons found in the openerp-web project.

I have tried installing with .deb and src but, same fail on both.

Do I need to have a apache installed for it to work ? How can I fix this ?
