Subject Re: Build HBase 0.94.23 RPM
Date Mon, 22 Sep 2014 15:41:26 GMT
Sure! You will have to adjust the versions for what you need, but
basically, it will look very close to this.

1) Download and install maven 3.0.5
2) Add it to the path
3) Build bigtop
git clone bigtop-0.7
cd bigtop-0.7
git branch remotes/origin/branch-0.7
vi #edit file and change to the versions you want. For
testing I changed by hbase 0.94.23
Install some required packaged
make hbase-rpm

Files are into output/hbase/

If build fails it's most probably because you have to install some extra
packages. Just look at the error log to see what is missing and yum install
it. Just as a reference, here is what I need to install when I build on
apt-get install git curl dpkg-dev debhelper devscripts liblzo2-dev
libzip-dev sharutils libfuse-dev libssl-dev cmake pkg-config autoconf
automake netcat-openbsd subversion
