Re: transfer large file onto hdfs
Hi Ted,

Hadoop in general should work OK on Solaris, minus the native code,
which may or may not require some tweaking to build for Solaris, but
needs to be manually built nevertheless.

For CDH-specific questions though, please mail to the CDH users list
instead at http://groups.google.com/a/cloudera.org/group/cdh-user.
