Subject [jira] [Commented] (HADOOP-7521) bintar created tarball should use a common directory for prefix
Date Fri, 05 Aug 2011 18:37:27 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HADOOP-7521?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13080135#comment-13080135

Alejandro Abdelnur commented on HADOOP-7521:

Using usr/ leads to the following layout:

   + bin/
   + sbin/
   + etc/
   + libexec/
   + share/
   + lib/

IMO the layout should be:

     + usr/bin/
     + usr/sbin/
     + usr/etc/
     + usr/libexec/
     + usr/share/
     + usr/lib/
     + usr/lib64/

Where <FOO> could be the same for common, hdfs, mapred.

When doing TARs you have everything under <FOO>

When doing RPM/DEB the packaging logic removes the <FOO> level.

In addition this would play nicely with runtime dirs like /var/log, /var/lib, /var/run which
could work out for <FOO> when using TARs and out fo / when doing RPM/DEB.


PS: I'm OK with using <FOO>/etc/ instead <FOO>/usr/etc/ also, still things are
under the <FOO> prefix for TAR usage.

>             Project: Hadoop Common
>          Issue Type: Bug
>          Components: build
>    Affects Versions: 0.23.0
>         Environment: Java 6, Maven, Linux/Mac
>            Reporter: Eric Yang
>            Assignee: Eric Yang
>         Attachments: HADOOP-7521.patch
> The binary tarball contains the directory structure like:
> {noformat}
> hadoop-common-0.23.0-SNAPSHOT-bin/bin
>                                  /etc/hadoop
>                                  /libexec
>                                  /sbin
>                                  /share/hadoop/common
> {noformat}
> It would be nice to rename the prefix directory to a common directory where it is common
to all Hadoop stack software.  Therefore, user can untar hbase, hadoop, zookeeper, pig, hive
all into the same location and run from the top level directory without manually renaming
them to the same directory again.
> By default the prefix directory can be /usr.  Hence, it could merge with the base OS.
