Known issues of the Karmic beta package
Database has local changes
Database has local changes. Update.database will not be done.
When: Installing a template (e.g. QuickStart)
Description: There is a issue in 2.50MP9 that makes it randomly fail because the database XML files do no match with the real database data. The problem occurs when you import the database with a dump file in PostgreSQL. In this case the database functions are not ordered so there is a chance for the order not to match the one in the XML files.
Make the database data match with the data in the xml files:
1.- Uninstall the template in the web interface.
2.- Execute this in a terminal:
$ su (enter root pass) $ su -l openbravo -c "cd /opt/OpenbravoERP-2.50/openbravo-erp && ant update.database -Dforce=yes"
3.- Install again the template in the web interface.
Solution: This is a known issue of 2.50MP9, but the final stable package will have 2.50MP10, so this problem will not happen.
