I had Ubuntu 8.10. I upgrade it to 9.04. I have Openerp5.0 server/client/web. It worked on 8.10 but not with 9.04.

Now when I try to launch my server using:


I have this error:

ERROR: Import xpath module
ERROR: Try to install the old python-xml package

It seems that this version of openerp doesn't work with python2.6. Can I redirect openerp to use old version of Python?
