If you are having issues getting Thrift installed, your best bet would
be to post to one of their lists
( They're better equipped
to help you with this sort of problem.

That said, if you removed the tests and got a complete build, you
*might* be OK (depending on which tests were failing and why), and the
Cassandra start-up errors below are *not* related to Thrift.

The assertion that created this exception is taking what is assumed to
be the "main address" for your node (should be the one that maps to the
hostname), and asserting that it is in the form of an IPv4 address.

Does this machine use an IPv6 interface? If so, that is probably not
going to work. If you haven't set it up for IPv6, then we need to figure
out how an InetAddress.getLocalHost() returned "0:0:0:0:0:0:0:1".
