Subject Re: Import path for hadoop streaming with python
Date Fri, 23 May 2008 00:09:09 GMT
I haven't done this using hadoop but before i 16.4 i had written my  
own distributed batch processor using HDFS as a common file storage  
and remote execution of python scripts.
They all required a custom module which was copied to the remote temp  
folders (a primitive implementation of cacheFile)

So this is what I did:  just after #!/usr/bin/env python

import sys
import mylib

so that your module can be found in the current path.
It should work thereafter
