 Caitlin Ramsey 1 Vote Hello, I am trying to use the HadoopLink package for the first time, and running into a few challenges. I am hoping someone out there is using this successfully, and might have some tips for a smooth installation in the current version of mathematica (10.2 at the time of writing this). I have downloaded the open-source project and I am following along with HadoopLink installation instructions on GitHub.I have unpacked the .zip and placed the HadoopLink folder (and only that folder, not the entire unpacked project) into my \$User/Libarary/Mathematica/Applications folder, and loaded the package using: << HadoopLink But when I proceed to the next step, and execute this code... link = OpenHadoopLink[ "fs.default.name" -> "hdfs://hadoopheadlx.wolfram.com:8020", "mapred.job.tracker" -> "hadoopheadlx.wolfram.com:8021"]; DFSFileNames[link] `Mathematica output spews a bunch of Java exceptions (attached). Anybody have more detailed instructions on setting up HadoopLink? Maybe I should have put the entire project folder into the /Applications folder instead. I will try that now... Attachments:
