HDP on Linux – Installation Forum

.tar file of Repository is does not contain all files needed

  • #33867

    I am using ambari to setup a cluster of hadoop.In order to install hadoop components on systems,I wanted to set a local repository based on these instructions.
    I downloaded the tar files mentioned there for centOS 6.

    my problem is that:
    The HDP tar file which is available for download doesn’t have GA subdirectory.
    here is the link: http://public-repo-1.hortonworks.com/HDP/centos5/HDP-

    In section of tutorial above,the instruction #6 letter c:
    The hdp.repo file is shown.
    My extracted HDP tar file only includes the path: “HDP/centos6/1.x/updates”
    and there isn’t any path named :”HDP/centos6/1.x/GA” :(

    how can I handle this problem?
    is /GA path important? if not,how should I change the hdp.repo file,to avoid any problems?
    or the problem is with that tar file?

    tnx in advance 😉

    Hi Hesam,

    The link you provided is for centos5 and not 6.
    Just ensure you have the 3 files from the documentation for 1.3.2 on centos6 and that will be enough to install the HDP stack.

    Let me know if you run into any issues.




    Hi Dave,
    I wrote the wrong link in the question.in fact,I downloaded the file for centos6,but they dont contain the subdirectories “GA” and “Updates” together.
    I used the oldest package I could that contained both subdirectories mentioned earlier.It was package 1.2.1.
    I faced some problems I have mentioned in other thread.(a thread named: “Confirming and registering hosts fails”)
    I would be glad if you could help me out solving that problem 😉
