Date Tue, 23 Apr 2013 15:27:15 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HADOOP-9491?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13639153#comment-13639153

Chris Nauroth commented on HADOOP-9491:

+1 for the patch.  The change looks safe, and thank you for the thorough testing!

I couldn't assign the issue to you (so that you get credit for the patch).  When a committer
picks this up, they'll need to take care of configuring your jira account as a contributor
so that it can be assigned to you.

>         Environment: RHEL6.4, python-2.6.6-36.el6.x86_64

> Running HOD from the hadoop-1.1.2-bin.tar.gz distribution with python 2.6.6 on RHEL6.4
fails with the output:

> 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.
