Subject [jira] Commented: (HADOOP-6295) Build process from tarball is flawed
Date Mon, 05 Oct 2009 17:08:31 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HADOOP-6295?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=12762266#action_12762266
] 

Hong Tang commented on HADOOP-6295:
-----------------------------------

One possible deficiency in the current native code compilation is that On modern 64-bit capable
intel processors, we would compile either 32-bit or 64-bit native library depending on the
version of JVM being used by ant.

Typically, we invoke the build process twice, with 32-bit and 64-bit jvm without cleaning
the build directory, so that the release version can be used without worrying about which
version of jvm is used in the cluster.

Might it be better if we just build both 32-bit and 64-bit versions up front?

> Currently, the natively compiled components have a requirement of building from within
ant.  To make matters worse, after talking this over with Lee, it appears that the ant build
assumes to be executed from a svn-checkout and not from the tarballs that are generated. 
We need to
> a) start packaging up the svn repo trees as src tarballs
> b) separate out the compiled bits out from underneath ant completely
> c) be able to create real builds from the tarball
> As an admin, I shouldn't have to reach for svn to make Hadoop work optimally on non-Linux.
