Subject [jira] Commented: (HADOOP-1689) .sh scripts do not work on Solaris
Date Wed, 22 Aug 2007 06:40:30 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HADOOP-1689?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel#action_12521704

Owen O'Malley commented on HADOOP-1689:

Rather that requiring Solaris boxes link /bin/bash to where bash lives, the standard trick
is to use:

#!/usr/bin/env bash
... rest of script ...

Using the env command to look up bash on the path is cheating, but it is a pretty standard

> the EXPORT commands in the scripts didn't play nicely w/the default shell & Hadoop
wouldn't start ("... is not an
> identifier").  I changed the first #! line of bin/hadoop-daemon.sh and bin/hadoop to
specify bash, then everything worked: 
> #!/bin/bash
> ksh is probably another option that will work, but we did not try that
