Subject [jira] [Commented] (HADOOP-8901) GZip and Snappy support may not work without unversioned libraries
Date Tue, 09 Oct 2012 05:32:03 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HADOOP-8901?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13472149#comment-13472149

Colin Patrick McCabe commented on HADOOP-8901:

Windows doesn't even have {{dlopen}} at all.  Yet another reason to implement HADOOP-6069.

Anyway, I will add a platform check.  I could take a stab at doing the right thing on Mac
OS X, but someone else would need to confirm, because I don't have access to a Mac.  It might
be better to file a follow-on JIRA for that.

>    Affects Versions: 2.0.3-alpha

>            Assignee: Colin Patrick McCabe

> Currently, we use {{dlopen}} to open {{libz.so}} and {{libsnappy.so}}, to get Gzip and
Snappy support, respectively.
> However, this is not correct; we should be dlopening {{libsnappy.so.1}} instead.  The
versionless form of the shared library is not commonly installed except by development packages.
 Also, we may run into subtle compatibility problems if a new version of libsnappy comes out.
> Thanks to Brandon Vargo for reporting this bug.
