Subject need helps for hive on cygwin
Date Fri, 07 Sep 2012 09:04:02 GMT
I need some help on HIVE installation. Here is the scenario.....

I have Apace Hadoop 0.20.2 installed on Cygwin (on Windows 7). Hadoop is working fine through
SSHD on Cygwin. After installing Hadoop, I have installed Hive 0.8.1 following the standard
installation instructions. $HADOOP_HOME and $HIVE_HOME are both exported to PATH.

The problem I am facing is that when I type bin/hive from $HIVE_HOME I get the Hive (hive>)
prompt. But when I type in something (e.g. SHOW TABLES; etc) there is no output. The cursor
simply keeps on blinking.

I have tried some patches (e.g. but it has
not helped. Can somebody help?



Thanks and Regards
