Subject [jira] [Resolved] (BIGTOP-293) Update the installation instructions so that 'flume\*' is changed into something that doesn't get the extra stuff
Date Tue, 13 Dec 2011 05:53:30 GMT

     [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/BIGTOP-293?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:all-tabpanel
]

bikramjit ganguly resolved BIGTOP-293.
--------------------------------------

       Resolution: Fixed
    Fix Version/s: 0.2.0

the correct syntax should be 
sudo apt-get install hadoop\* flume-* whirr-*

originally the package names was flume\*. the command parses flume\* as a posix regex and
actually interprets it as flume*. this regex then resolves to 0 or more matches for the character
'e'. thus it picks up the package flumotion. it also picks up the package cortado , as the
description for that package has a reference to flumotion in it. 
similar analysis holds for whirr-*. when used as whirr\*, it will also install some 'whirlpool'
related package.
we could, infact, possibly use the trailing hyphen for the other packages also, but i haven't
done any testing on packages other than flume and whirr.
