Subject [jira] [Commented] (HADOOP-4603) Installation on Solaris needs additional PATH setting
Date Tue, 03 Jan 2012 03:34:21 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HADOOP-4603?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13178610#comment-13178610
] 

Allen Wittenauer commented on HADOOP-4603:
------------------------------------------


This is essentially fixed by using the native libraries in newer releases of Hadoop.  The
problem is that the native code is completely non-portable and the committer community has
shown no real desire to make that code portable.  I don't believe we should encourage folks
to run without the native code because the performance is likely to be seriously horrendous.
 (My anecdotal experience says the NN in 0.20.20x is 10-15% slower compared to 0.20.2).

At this point, I'd close this as won't fix, just like I did all of my portability JIRAs (including
some with patches).  I think pretending that we care about portability is sort of silly at
this point when it has been demonstrated over and over that we don't.

> A default installation as outlined in the docs won't start on Solaris 10 x86. The "whoami"
utility is in path "/usr/ucb" on Solaris 10, which isn't in the standard PATH environment
variable unless the user has added that specifically. The documentation should reflect this.
> Solaris 10 also seemed to throw NPEs if you didn't explicitly set the IP address to bind
the servers to. Simply overriding the IP address fixes the problem.
