Subject [jira] Commented: (HADOOP-3979) linux 64-bit native libraries should always be built and included in release
Date Fri, 05 Sep 2008 10:41:45 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HADOOP-3979?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=12628607#action_12628607

Steve Loughran commented on HADOOP-3979:

we have specific release and (test release) VMware images @work for cutting releases


This works well as you can do a release test in the background while editing your local copy,
and the release machine account lacks the ability to commit changes; nobody ever edits stuff
there or fiddles with the settings to meet local developer needs.

The biggest problem is that 24h before the release you need to bring the images up to date,
and that can break the build; one update of RHEL5 switched java back to gcj, for example.

It should be possible to create a 64-bit CentOS or ubuntu vmware image to share around for
people cutting releases, just rather large.

>            Priority: Minor
> The current HowToRelease wiki document says that 64-bit linux native libs are optional
for a release. However, we had them in all 0.16.x, 0.17.[0-1], and 0.18.0 releases. Provided
the fact that 64-bit computers become more common nowadays. We should make this binary built
and included in release.
