Subject [jira] Commented: (HADOOP-352) Portability of hadoop shell scripts for deployment
Date Fri, 07 Jul 2006 12:28:30 GMT
    [ http://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HADOOP-352?page=comments#action_12419697 ] 

Jean-Baptiste Quenot commented on HADOOP-352:
---------------------------------------------

This is the purpose of compile (and testing) farms at SourceForge (see http://sourceforge.net/docman/display_doc.php?docid=762&group_id=1),
is there such a possibility at Apache?

I understand your concern that your changes might introduce new incompatibilities.  But at
the contrary, you may prevent users from adopting Hadoop by having very Linux-specific constructs.
 FYI I'm working in a group of persons that intend to deploy Hadoop on Linux, FreeBSD, Cygwin
and Solaris systems.

There are simples rules to follow that could ensure compatibility:

* "> file 2>&1" instead of ">& file"
* ". file" instead of "source file"
* Not using /proc (Linux-specific)

Best regards.

> Hadoop shell scripts are based on /bin/bash, which is a "standard" shell only on GNU/Linux.
 On other Unix systems like FreeBSD however the "standard" shell is /bin/sh.  The attached
patch addresses these compatiblity issues.  Note that Solaris support is not yet tested.
> Also, the best way to set the HADOOP_HOME variable upon ssh connection in a portable
way is to set it in .ssh/environment.  The bash startup script ".bashrc" is not an option
on systems where "bash" is not installed.
