Subject [jira] Commented: (HBASE-2032) [EC2] Add support for installation of user packages when instances start up
Date Thu, 10 Dec 2009 10:16:19 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HBASE-2032?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=12788643#action_12788643

Andrew Purtell commented on HBASE-2032:

@Seth: Thanks for the pointer. For my purposes here -- installation of a few supporting packages
for an arbitrary user mapreduce job on startup -- I prefer to do something as simple and dependency
free as possible that doesn't require me (or users) to learn about another package and dependency
management framework beyond yum and rpm.

However just because I don't want to use Chef does not mean you could/should not, if you are
so inclined. :-) if you do, perhaps you would consider contributing back the result.

> Support downloading and installation of user packages at instance boot time. Should pass
a list of URLs or a Yum repository URL and list of package names in user data. If given a
list of URLs, download them all and then run 'rpm --install' with all included on the command
line if the URL ends in '.rpm', or untar in / if the URL ends in '.tar.gz' or '.tgz'. If given
a repository and package list, run 'yum install' appropriately.
