Subject [jira] [Created] (HADOOP-9491) HOD fails to run under python 2.6.1
Date Mon, 22 Apr 2013 10:29:16 GMT
Jonathan Barber created HADOOP-9491:
---------------------------------------

             Summary: HOD fails to run under python 2.6.1
                 Key: HADOOP-9491
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HADOOP-9491
             Project: Hadoop Common
          Issue Type: Bug
          Components: contrib/hod
    Affects Versions: 1.1.2
         Environment: RHEL6.4, python-2.6.6-36.el6.x86_64
            Reporter: Jonathan Barber
            Priority: Critical
             Fix For: 1.1.2


Running HOD from the hadoop-1.1.2-bin.tar.gz distribution with python 2.6.6 on RHEL6.4 fails
with the output:
$ ./contrib/hod/bin/hod -c contrib/hod/conf/hodrc list -d /tmp/hod-jbarber 
/homes/jbarber/hadoop-1.1.2/contrib/hod/hodlib/Common/threads.py:19: DeprecationWarning: The
popen2 module is deprecated.  Use the subprocess module.
  from popen2 import Popen4, Popen3, MAXFD
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "hod", line 411, in <module>
    options=hodOptions) 
  File "/homes/jbarber/hadoop-1.1.2/contrib/hod/hodlib/Common/setup.py", line 449, in __init__
    self.read(configFile)
  File "/usr/lib64/python2.6/ConfigParser.py", line 286, in read
    self._read(fp, filename)
  File "/usr/lib64/python2.6/ConfigParser.py", line 475, in _read
    cursect = self._dict()
TypeError: 'dict' object is not callable


This error appears because the Hadoop "config" class is an instance of the  python ConfigParser
class with a class variable called ._dict. However, the internals of the ConfigParser class
appears to have been changed with later versions of python to have a method called ._dict()
which now conflicts with the "config" classes usage.

This can be fixed by changing all references in contrib/hod/hodlib/Common/setup.py from ._dict
to ._hod_dict, e.g.:
sed -i 's/\._dict/._hod_dict/' contrib/hod/hodlib/Common/setup.py

I tested this change by repeating the hod "list" command successfully.
