Subject [jira] [Commented] (HADOOP-9491) HOD fails to run under python 2.6.1

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HADOOP-9491?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13638885#comment-13638885

Jonathan Barber commented on HADOOP-9491:

I am not an expert, but I downloaded and compiled Python 2.5.6 from python.org and tested
HOD from 1.1.2 with my patch on our Torque cluster, and it appears to work in the same way
as with Python 2.6.1.

I tested the "allocate", "deallocate", "list", and "info" HOD commands. I didn't test the
"script" command because I'm just getting started with Hadoop and I don't know what the script
should be or do.

All of these commands appear to work in the same way as with Python 2.5.6 and without the

> 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.
