Subject RE: Hive on Windows w/Hadoop 2.2.0
Date Wed, 05 Feb 2014 13:47:42 GMT
I am not sure that it should say anything different.. I would like to run Hive on Windows.
I was wondering if any details existed on why Cygwin didn't work or an alternative for Windows
other than using Hortonworks.

>From my point of view is it valid to say that no other details exist and use the source.

That's from the first sentence of Getting Started, which needs to be rewritten:

DISCLAIMER: Hive has only been tested on unix(linux) and mac systems using Java 1.6 for now
- although it may very well work on other similar platforms. It does not work on Cygwin.

What should it say instead?

HDP runs on Windows:

I don't know if it uses Cygwin or not but everything needed to run Hive on Windows should
be in the install package.

Reading the Wiki (<>),
it states "It does not work on Cygwin." Do further details exist or hints to make work on
