Subject Re: How to install and start apache distributed hadoop rather than hortonworks distribution
Date Fri, 07 Oct 2016 11:53:04 GMT
So essentially if i want to use apache distribution i need to define my own
stack? Can't i just change some configuration so that it starts working
with apache distribution.

What i understood from documentation and code is to write a stack one needs
to provide his own replacement of "hdp-select" and "conf-select"
and couldnot find documentation around what is expected from these
tools(like what all functions one need to implement) so it looks like a
dark area to me.

A did a quick grep to see if there is something around version number of
stack and found this in ambari-commons

   match = re.match('[0-9]+.[0-9]+.[0-9]+.[0-9]+-[0-9]+', stack_version)*
 match = re.findall('[0-9]+.[0-9]+.[0-9]+.[0-9]+-[0-9]+',
 match = re.match('[0-9]+.[0-9]+.[0-9]+.[0-9]+-[0-9]+', stack_version)*

Looks like there is some rule around the naming of rpm packages and stack
naming which i am completely missing!!
