Subject [jira] [Commented] (ACCUMULO-429) Clean up startup scripts
Date Thu, 23 Aug 2012 22:32:42 GMT


Christopher Tubbs commented on ACCUMULO-429:

Also, I'm a bit opposed to having the the startup scripts jump through hoops to ensure dependencies
are installed. That seems like a lot of extra work that ultimately doesn't help people get
started. Sure, these might be useful for informative errors, and such, especially for people
running from the tarball. Such "sanity checks" can help people find out why things aren't
working. However, I think it more fruitful (or at least as fruitful) to put some emphasis
on package management, and enumerating the proper dependencies in the RPM/DEBs, so that if
the package is installed, one can reasonably expect its dependencies are installed as well
(or, if not, the user knows what they are doing).

And we lack consistancy in doing so. We should go through our startup scripts and have some
consistancy with out we resolve paths and make sure things work properly with relative paths,
absolute paths, symlinks, and any other path craziness people can think of.
