Subject [Lucene-hadoop Wiki] Update of "NativeHadoop" by Arun C Murthy
Date Sat, 13 Jan 2007 14:27:24 GMT
Dear Wiki user,

You have subscribed to a wiki page or wiki category on "Lucene-hadoop Wiki" for change notification.

The following page has been changed by Arun C Murthy:

  Hadoop has native implementations of certain components for reasons of both performace &
non-availability of java-implementations. 
  This section describes the usage & details on how to build the native-libraries.

  It has been tested on the following Linux distributions:
     * [http://www.redhat.com/rhel/ RHEL4]/[http://fedora.redhat.com/ Fedora]
     * [http://www.ubuntu.com Ubuntu]
     * [http://www.gentoo.org Gentoo]
  
+ On all the above platforms a 32/64 bit native-hadoop library will work with a respective
32/64 bit jvm.

+ ==== Building Native Hadoop Libraries ====
+ 
+ Native-hadoop library is written in [http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/ANSI_C ANSI C] and built
using the GNU autotools-chain (autoconf, autoheader, automake, autoscan, libtool). This means
it should be straight-forward to build them on any platform with a standards compliant C compiler
and the GNU autotools-chain. (See [#Platforms supported platforms])
+ 
+ In particular the various packages you would need on the target platform are:
+    * C compiler (e.g. [http://gcc.gnu.org/ GNU C Compiler]
+    * GNU Autools Chain
+       * [http://www.gnu.org/software/autoconf/ autoconf]
+       * [http://www.gnu.org/software/automake/ automake]
+       * [http://www.gnu.org/software/libtool/ libtool]
+    * [http://www.zlib.net/ zlib-development package]
+    * [http://www.oberhumer.com/opensource/lzo/ lzo-development package]
+ 
+ '''Note''': It is '''mandatory''' to have both the zlib and lzo development packages on
the target platform for ''building'' the native-hadoop library; however for deployment it
is sufficient to have install zlib ''or'' lzo if you wish to use only one of them.
