> Multiple times I have hit this problem which prevents the NameNode from starting.
> The only fix I had so far was to loose all my DFS data...
> Exception in thread "main" java.lang.RuntimeException: java.lang.IllegalAccessException:

> Class org.apache.hadoop.io.WritableFactories can not access a member of 
> class org.apache.hadoop.dfs.Block with modifiers "public"

> this is a known issue when using
> reflexive access to a non-public class with public ctor 
> (class org.apache.hadoop.dfs.Block is such a class)
> This problem may not occur with all JVM releases. 
> (I build on 1.5.0-b64 and run on 1.5.0_05-b05)
> This problem only occured for me when 
> I upgrade code or change XML configuration AND 
> have existing files in the DFS.
> This problem does not occur when I just stop / restart the NameServer.
> In any case, the attached patch fixes it by calling setAccessible
> before constructing the instance with reflection.
