This is a quick install solution for those without linux knowledge.

They have been having trouble with the command line as they were used to using an OS with a GUI.

I went through this myself, I started learning Linux( my choice is Ubuntu) because I really really wanted to use OpenERP and I wanted a dedicated OpenERP server. I have done this and posted them to Uploaded.net.

All you have to do is download Clonezilla from clonezilla.org and download the image of your choice. Extract this image from the downloaded Rar file onto a USB keeping the folder structure intact. Create a Clonezilla boot cd and boot your server machine off this. Using Clonezilla you can restore the image to your Linux formatted HDD and have an OpenERP server running in 10 minutes.

You have a choice of the following images to install:

1) Plain Ubuntu Server 12.04 http:// ul.to/f/ncsmst

2) Openerp 6.1.1 on Ubuntu Server 12.04 http:// ul.to/f/mex4rf

3) OpenERP 7.0 on Ubuntu Server 12.04 http:// ul.to/f/8yenwu

Please note: For those having trouble with Intel or other graphics cards booting Ubuntu server to a blank screen, the server in all images already has "nomodeset" written into the grub bootloader so even onboard Intel graphics cards will boot successfully. Please download the Read me First text file as well as the Rar file. It contains important information. This file will be updated and supercedes the Read me first in the Rar file.

Also this is just to help Linux newbies get going with OpenERP. YOU STILL HAVE TO LEARN HOW TO MAINTAIN A SERVER. (not shouting just want to emphasise the importance of this). I now it can be frustrating to have to learn something your not interested in(Linux) but need to achieve success with your goal(OpenERP). This will just get you going faster. Linux is great, better than I expected and as a bonus infrastructure TCO is greatly reduced.

For help with Clonezilla, Ubuntu and OpenERP please check the website, FAQs and forums. These installs were done as per the instructions on theopensourcerer.com. Even though the instructions are clear several people, including me have had trouble following them and running OpenERP.

Having just gone through this process myself, I found http://www.theopensourcerer.com/2012/12/how-to-install-openerp-7-0-on-ubuntu-12-04-lts/ (www.theopensourcerer.com/2012/12/how-to-install-openerp-7-0-on-ubuntu-12-04-lts/) pretty useful.

I strongly recommand to use the following buildout receipt to install and deploy OpenERP. On Debian and Ubuntu there is some provided dependency packages. You will still have to configure your postgresql.
