Thank you for sharing that.

I was expecting to see some kind of failure in building our C codebase, where a 32-bit vs.
64-bit portability problem is likely to happen.  Instead, that's a failure in Maven's handling
of a jar dependency.  I tried building from the 2.4.0 source, and I couldn't reproduce the

Is it possible that this is a problem specific to the Maven version running your build?  The
BUILDING.txt file in the root of the source tree has details on what tools and what versions
are required for the build.

Well, the error I got was:

[ERROR] Failed to execute goal org.apache.maven.plugins:maven-jar-plugin:3.0.1:jar (default-jar)
on project hadoop-yarn-applications-distributedshell: You have to use a classifier to attach
supplemental artifacts to the project instead of replacing them. -> [Help 1]


I'm not sure if this is a Fedora-specific problem (due to its dependency convergence and the
specific version of the maven-jar-plugin, for example), or if it's an upstream problem. This
was version 2.4.1. Right now, I'm just trying to stabilize the currently packaged 2.4 version,
before I begin moving towards an upgrade path for users to migrate to a newer version (2.6,
probably). It's just that I'm a bit overwhelmed with Hadoop's build and quantity of components.

Not sure where to begin looking.

Hello Christopher,

While 64-bit is certainly the common case at this point, we also have produced 32-bit builds
in the past.  I'm not aware of any conscious choice by the community to halt 32-bit support,
so if that's not working, then it might be a bug.  Do you have more details on the build failure?
 That might help us confirm if it's a bug, and if so, move to tracking it in an Apache JIRA.

Subject: i686 support


Is i686 a supported arch by the upstream Hadoop developers? I'm trying to package hadoop RPMs
for Fedora (reviving somebody else's previous efforts), and can't get things to build on i686.
Is this normal? Does upstream care about 32-bit users? What about release testing on i686?

I normally wouldn't care about 32-bit, but Fedora packaging standards encourage me to get
it to work for all core architectures supported by Fedora.

Has anybody else done any 32-bit packaging that could help me troubleshoot? I don't even own
32-bit hardware. (Even better if you want to help co-maintain Hadoop in Fedora.. that would
be awesome).
