Subject [jira] Commented: (HADOOP-352) Portability of hadoop shell scripts for deployment
Date Fri, 07 Jul 2006 12:42:30 GMT
    [ http://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HADOOP-352?page=comments#action_12419699 ] 

Doug Cutting commented on HADOOP-352:

We currently do not have unit tests for the scripts, nor does Apache have a FreeBSD compilation

I think there were more subtle problems with the scripts than those you mention, although
I've forgotten the details.  Have you succeeded, with your patch, to use the scripts to manage
a FreeBSD cluster?

I do not wish to discourage in any way your group from using Hadoop.  Is installing bash on
FreeBSD difficult?  If it is, and your group will be regular Hadoop users, then perhaps we
should commit this patch.

> 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.
