Subject [jira] Created: (HADOOP-352) Portability of hadoop shell scripts for deployment

Portability of hadoop shell scripts for deployment

         Key: HADOOP-352
         URL: http://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HADOOP-352
     Project: Hadoop
        Type: Bug

    Versions: 0.4.0    
    Reporter: Jean-Baptiste Quenot

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.
