Subject Re: Lack of progress info in map tasks
Date Thu, 15 Mar 2007 22:13:07 GMT
It's tiny bug in SequenceFileRecordReader. A cast to float is needed here
      return (in.getPosition() - start) / (end - start);
      return (in.getPosition() - start) / (float) (end - start);

As well as assigning start in the constructor:
    this.start = split.getStart();
