Subject Re: Build HBase 0.94.23 RPM
Date Mon, 22 Sep 2014 15:53:31 GMT
Thanks Jean. My situation is little more complicated. Our env is well
protected and we do not have access to internet on our WS. So I need to
bring in everything that is needed. So this is what I am thinking of doing:

1. download BigTop ZIP file from
2. Build the GIT Repo
3. I guess in open env, Hbase version 0.94.23 gets downloaded. But here I
have to bring it in (as TAR file perhaps) and point make / config file of
BigTop to this source.

I am not sure about the 3rd step. Do you have any experience. Are there any
more steps involved. Sorry, if this question makes you unhappy :-(
