I build on a brand new Centos 6.5 AWS instance. I followed every step in the manuals. (Please note: examples on how to do things in the manuals are one step after you are told to do them... I was trying to figure things out on my own without reading ahead. Once I figured that out, it was much easier)

I did a make package and it failed the first time because I lacked space on /root (this whole process needed about 9 GB ). Once I added more space, I did make package again and it worked. 

Note: To get the installation tar file, you will need to go to the install directory and do a make. 

I was then able to install this on a Centos 6.7 with HDP 2.3 two node instance (openstack VM's). 

I have included an installation cheat sheet to install on a cluster.

This is a call to vote on release 2.0.0 of Apache Trafodion (incubating).
Once the community approves a release candidate, a similar vote will be
taken in the Apache Incubator community.

Changes since RC2:
  [TRAFODION-1992] Re-packaging server tar file broke
  [TRAFODION-1993] Expand DCS and REST directories
  [TRAFODION-1997] Prevent Cloudera install on 5.5/6

In addition, it is clarified that 2.0.0 is compatible with these
Hadoop/HBase distros (others may be added in next patch or minor release).
* Apache Hadoop with HBase 1.0
* Cloudera 5.4
* Hortonworks 2.3

As previous release, Trafodion 2.0 works with JDK 1.7 or 1.8, and
RedHat/Centos 6.x. (Does not work on RH7 as yet.)

Thanks to all the contributors! Lots of improvements in this release.
