Subject Re: Satisfying Zookeper dependency when installing Accumulo in CentOS
Date Wed, 19 Dec 2012 22:33:02 GMT
I was worried about forcing the rpm installation with --nodeps b/c I wasn't
sure if there was some kind of linkage that would be formed from accumulo
to the zookeeper package, which, due to zookeeper not being a true package,
would cause accumulo to fail at runtime.

But, based on your advice, I went ahead and installed Accumulo via rpm with
the --nodeps option.  It completed without errors, and I was about to
proceed with the next step of modifying conf/ I can't seem
to find where it is!  "locate" is resulting in no hits.
 Where would the rpm installation have put Accumulo?
