It seems like two instances of openerp are running on same port.

It looks like there are two processes which are using same port.

You can kill after finding those processes.

Try this command in terminal:

 ps -ax | grep server

This will give you list of processes. Find OpenERP server's process and process_id and kill them by following command.

kill -9 process_id
