You need to run hive_root/build/dist/bin/hive, not hive_root/bin/hive.

Subject: Exception in hive startup

Hi all,

I installed Hadoop 0.20.2 and installed hive 0.5.0.

I followed all the instructions on Hive's getting started page for setting up environment
variables like HADOOP_HOME

When I run from command prompt in the hive installation folder as "bin/hive" it gives me following

Exception in thread "main" java.lang.NoClassDefFoundError: org/apache/hadoop/hive/conf/HiveConf
        at java.lang.Class.forName0(Native Method)
        at java.lang.Class.forName(
        at org.apache.hadoop.util.RunJar.main(
Caused by: java.lang.ClassNotFoundException: org.apache.hadoop.hive.conf.HiveConf
        at Method)
        at java.lang.ClassLoader.loadClass(
        at java.lang.ClassLoader.loadClass(
        at java.lang.ClassLoader.loadClassInternal(
        ... 3 more

Please note that my Hadoop installation is working fine.

What could be the cause of this? Anybody has any idea?
