Subject Re: Hadoop + WinXP + cygwin

Thanks a lot :o) Still, some new questions emerged, which I'd like to 
ask. I tried what You told me, only with lsr instead of ls -
	bin/hadoop dfs -lsr /

Here's the result:
	/tmp	<dir>
	/tmp/hadoop	<dir>
	/tmp/hadoop/mapred	<dir>
	/tmp/hadoop/mapred/system	<dir>

So I assume, the fs is up and running. But then I got an interesting 
results in Java. Here's the code:

     try {
       InetSocketAddress adr = new InetSocketAddress("",2905);
       Configuration conf = new Configuration();
       DistributedFileSystem dfs = new DistributedFileSystem(adr,conf);
       System.out.println("Working dir: " + dfs.getWorkingDirectory());
       System.out.println("Size: " + dfs.getUsed());
       System.out.println("Name: " + dfs.getName());
     } catch (IOException e) {

And the output:

060524 090137 parsing jar:file:/W:/lib/hadoop-0.2.1.jar 			 
060524 090138 Client connection to starting
Working dir: /user/praktykant //!!!Non existent anywhere in the system
Size: 0
Name: localhost:2905

So I'm curious... How come I get a directory that not only doesn't exist 
on the dfs, but neither does it exist anywhere on my system or is 
visible under cygwin. How? :o) By the way - in hadoop-site.xml I changed 
the fs.default.name to localhost:2905 and dfs.datanode.port to 2906, but 
this is the hadoop-site.xml file I used when I called start-all.sh in 
cygwin, whereas my eclipse seems to be using the one configuration 
stored inside the jar file, doesn't it? Is there a way to change that 

Once again, many many thanks :o)
