Subject [jira] [Commented] (BIGTOP-714) HDFS Fuse build broken for 0.23.3
Date Wed, 26 Sep 2012 15:27:08 GMT


Roman Shaposhnik commented on BIGTOP-714:

bq. I was under the impression that 0.23.3 is the latest Hadoop release (being released 2
months after 2.0.1-alpha). 

Welcome to the world of Hadoop version numbers -- where releases and versions don't make much
sense (still). Now, to be fair the whole renumbering to 1.X and 2.X happened precisely because
of the mess that uses to be.

Anyway, at the moment the only two actively developed Hadoop branches are Hadoop 1.X and Hadoop
2.X everything else is maintained for particular use cases with release managers essentially
cherry-picking fixes ONLY for the things they care about. IOW, all of the bug fixes, etc.
go either into 1.X or 2.X. You're really way better off using one of those branches. Don't
be confused by the release numbers since in Hadoop (actually all of the Apache) it is not
uncommon to have releases running in parallel.

bq. Can you build the latest hadoop with bigtop, not 2.0.0-alpha as in bigtop trunk?

The latest released Hadoop in 2.X seriues is Hadoop 2.0.1-aplha and we are likely to target
2.0.2-alpha for the Bigtop 0.5.0. I believe neither has this issue. If you're interested in
Hadoop 1.X then the latest release one is Hadoop 1.0.3 which also doesn't seem to suffer from
this problem. 

Once again: anybody who cares about 0.23.X should take it up with the current release manager

> The -Pfuse flag seems to have been removed upstream. The future support of fuse-dfs seems
to be unclear (it was voted as unmaintained and removed from the default build and there are
maintained alternatives, others say it still is alive ...)
> It probably still lives in the contrib folder, and can be built by ant.
