1) First do not post across multiple mailing list. I am replying to all in order to share my answer but you should then reply only on the mailing list which is concerned with your issue.
2) Does you hadoop installation work? If not, ask user@hadoop.apache.org
3) Does your hive installation work? If not, ask user@hive.apache.org
4) Explain your problem : " I got nothing" and no error message won't provide you any good feedback.
6) Hive installation is pretty well explained in the hive wiki : https://cwiki.apache.org/confluence/display/Hive/Home
