Subject Re: Using native libraries in Flink EMR jobs
Date Thu, 07 Apr 2016 08:07:16 GMT
there is a hack for this issue: copying my native library to
$HADOOP_HOME/lib/native makes it discoverable and a program runs, however
this is not an appropriate solution and it seems to be fragile.

I tried to find where 'lib/native' path appears in the configuration and
found 2 places:
hadoop-env.sh: export
mapred-site.xml: key: mapreduce.admin.user.env

I tried to add path to dir with my native lib in both places, but still no
