Pig Forum

.pigbootup Problem in labs

  • #55427

    I’m trying to run through the Pig labs in the Sandbox using the EXACT code and data set provided by Horton. The syntax check passes, but after a minute I get a job failed that seems to point to the fact that Horton cannot find the file “.pigbootup “. I telnet into the sandbox and did a sudo find [for that file] and sure enough it’s nowhere on the Sandbox image. If launch grunt from the command line, I get the same reference to that file missing, but grunt does come up.
    Anybody have a workaround for this? It would be GREAT to load files into HCat and run Pig scripts against them. Grunt is clunky and lame. I can send more info if anybody wants.

The forum ‘Pig’ is closed to new topics and replies.
