Subject [jira] Commented: (HADOOP-6255) Create an rpm integration project
Date Mon, 14 Feb 2011 10:38:59 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HADOOP-6255?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=12994263#comment-12994263

Steve Loughran commented on HADOOP-6255:

1. Logs are trouble, you can create a lot of them and people need to know they shouldn't go
on the root disk. As nigel says, this should be wiki'd

2. You can test RPMs, though not directly at the JUnit level. To test them you need to bring
up a VM with the target OS in a known state, copy over the RPMs, install them, start Hadoop.
Even without that, running rpmbuild as part of the nightly releases helps catch problems sooner
rather than later.

3. Which OS is targeted? RHEL/CentOS 5.5? I have a Virtualbox VM for that. 

4. Even if there aren't any .deb files created right now, it'd be good to make sure the layout
is compatible with the debian team rules

You don't need RHEL to do the builds, any Unix with rpmbuild works. Not OS/X, I've tried that
before and found too many problems with the rpmbuild version and with the shell: http://jira.smartfrog.org/jira/browse/SFOS-1255
