Subject [jira] Commented: (HADOOP-6255) Create an rpm integration project
Date Fri, 18 Jun 2010 04:17:28 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HADOOP-6255?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=12880065#action_12880065

Allen Wittenauer commented on HADOOP-6255:

Are we trying to build a package that fits the local OS or are we trying to build a package
that has hadoop completely in one dir and is fairly generic?

If the former, trying to dictate where things like config files are installed is going to
break.  Every OS has fairly specific rules and expectations (Linux has LSB, Solaris has filesystems(5),
NeXTStep... I mean, OS X, has something documented somewhere, I'm sure, etc...).  If the latter,
then I'd make the following changes:

a) drop the share level.  it doesn't seem to serve a purpose

b) etc/ should contain configs

c) lib should contain hadoop-config.sh and *.so in addtion to *.jar

d) i take it hdfs/mapred/etc is a 0.21 thing?  are we concerned about the number of people
that have 'hdfs' aliased to 'hadoop dfs'?  or is it a replacement for that?

e) var/tmp and var/logs should be defined
