Subject [jira] [Commented] (ACCUMULO-432) Symlinks to bin/accumulo don't work
Date Tue, 25 Sep 2012 16:48:09 GMT


Ed Kohlwey commented on ACCUMULO-432:

Supporting symlinks to scripts is difficult, and doing it 100% correctly is physically impossible.
There's some background discussion on this post if you're interested
. While symlinks work well for binaries, they are bad for shell, particularly bash scripts.

It would be better to have a script for /usr/bin/accumulo (that is part of the data tarball)
that executes /usr/lib/accumulo/bin/accumulo. This is the current approach in Hadoop and it
works well.

> jdeb, which we use for creating our debian files, automatically creates a symlink for
/usr/bin/accumulo. I was unable to find a way to configure this in jdeb. Granted, a symlink
to $ACCUMULO_HOME/bin/accumulo should be made to work, regardless of the state of our debian
