Subject [jira] Updated: (HADOOP-6295) Build process from tarball is flawed
Date Mon, 05 Oct 2009 16:46:31 GMT

     [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HADOOP-6295?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:all-tabpanel

Doug Cutting updated HADOOP-6295:

    Component/s: native

I agree that releases should be buildable when unpacked: if they're not, that should be a
blocking bug.

However I do not see that we need Ant-independent builds.  We currently require Ant to build
Hadoop.  So this part does not seem like a bug.  Changing things so that the native code can
be built without Ant would be a new feature that we should discuss separately from making
sure that native sources in release tarballs are buildable.  Does that make sense?

> 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.
