Subject [jira] [Commented] (HADOOP-8901) GZip and Snappy support may not work without unversioned libraries
Date Tue, 09 Oct 2012 00:32:03 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HADOOP-8901?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13471989#comment-13471989
] 

Todd Lipcon commented on HADOOP-8901:
-------------------------------------

This seems to incorporate HADOOP-6069, which, the first time it was floated, had some objections.
So rather than sneaking that change into this bug fix, we should have this just be a fix for
the cmake regression, and use HADOOP-6069 if we want to make libz non-dynamic.

> 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.
> For libz, I believe we should simply link normally against it, rather than loading it
using {{dlopen}}.  It is part of the base Linux install for every distribution I'm aware of,
so let's not overcomplicate things.
