Subject Confusion regarding Samsara's configuration
Date Tue, 02 Feb 2016 16:22:54 GMT
Greetings mahout users,

I have been trying to use mahout samsara as a library with scala/spark, but
I haven't been successful in doing so.

I am running spark 1.6.0 binaries, didn't build it myself.
However, I tried both readily available binaries on Apache mirrors, and
cloning and compiling mahout's repo, but neither worked.

I keep getting

Exception in thread "main" java.lang.NoClassDefFoundError:

The way I am doing things is:
I have spark in ~/spark-1.6
and mahout in ~/mahout
I have set both $SPARK_HOME and $MAHOUT_HOME accordingly, along with

and I have:


in build.sbt I have these lines to declare mahout dependecies:

libraryDependencies += "org.apache.mahout" %% "mahout-math-scala" % "0.11.1"

libraryDependencies += "org.apache.mahout" % "mahout-math" % "0.11.1"

libraryDependencies += "org.apache.mahout" % "mahout-spark_2.10" % "0.11.1"

along with other spark dependencies

and in App1.scala, in the main function, I construct a context object using
mahoutSparkContext, and of course, the sparkbindings are imported

everything compiles successfully

however, when I submit to spark, I get the above mentioned error.

I have a general idea of why this is happening: because the compiled app1
jar depends on mahout-spark dependency jar but it cannot find it in the
class path upon being submitted to spark.

In the instructions I couldn't find how to explicitly add the mahout-spark
dependency jar to the class path.

The question is: Am I doing the configurations correctly or not?

Sorry for the lengthy email

Kind Regards,
