I'm not familiar with terrier - however, I do notice that the download
package includes [ hadoop-0.20.2+228-core.jar ] - try changing that out for
the jar provided in the distribution.
If that doesn't fix it, look into the other jars provided (or make sure the
ones from your hadoop distro are being sourced prior to those) - your error
on pastebin feels alot like a slight version mismatch.
