Subject RPMs/DEBs for Accumulo 1.6.0 via Bigtop
Date Tue, 24 Jun 2014 04:32:14 GMT
One rather user-facing change that we made with 1.6.0 was the removal of 
the RPM and DEB packaging from our tree. We did this because maintenance 
of that packaging code was historically a problem, and we felt like 
bigtop would be a better home for it rather then perpetuate the bit-rot.

Personally, I think we messed up by removing the code from our tree 
before bigtop has the necessary pieces in place. Since getting the code 
into bigtop is still progressing slowly[1], I've forked bigtop[2], added 
the patch and fixed some bugs that are currently in the patch.

It's fairly easy to generate the packaging if you have some time to walk 
through it. I successfully installed and ran Accumulo 1.6.0 via Bigtop 
on Centos6.5 today.

Rough outline:

1. Download the code from [2]
2. Look at the DEVNOTES [3] and install the prereqs (there may be more, 
but I tried to update the list)
3. Ensure Maven and Gradle are installed too
4. gradle hadoop-rpm
5. gradle zookeeper-rpm
6. gradle bigtop-jsvc
7. gradle bigtop-utils
8. gradle accumulo-rpm

(check out `gradle tasks` for more info on steps 4-8).

Then, install the packages which are placed in the build/ directory at 
the top level of the repo. `find` is your friend. the Accumulo RPMs and 
SRPMs both built successfully. I haven't tried building DEBs yet, so 
YMMV there. (hopefully will make some time later this week).
