Subject [jira] [Commented] (BIGTOP-674) Installing hadoop-mapreduce package uses 'hadoop' group before creation
Date Sat, 14 Jul 2012 22:22:34 GMT


Bruno Mahé commented on BIGTOP-674:

How did you install hadoop-mapreduce package?
What error do you see?
What steps have you been through?

The group hadoop is created as part of the package hadoop and therefore will be created before
hadoop-mapreduce gets installed.

> When installing the hadoop-mapreduce package, users and files are assigned to the 'hadoop'
group before that group has been created.
> I'm still working on verifying all the details for RPMs, but I will attached a patch
that fixes this for DEBs (and quite possibly for RPMs too). It doesn't make sense to me why
the group has not been added earlier. The hadoop group is added in the hadoop.spec file on
line 510, and in the hadoop.preinst script - and I think both of these are supposed to execute
before the lines where I've added the group in the attached patch.
