Can't start the namenode
Hi,

when I am trying to start a namenode in pseudo-mode

sudo /etc/init.d/hadoop-0.20-namenode start
I get a permission error
java.io.FileNotFoundException:
/usr/lib/hadoop-0.20/logs/hadoop-hadoop-namenode-myservername.log
(Permission denied)
However, it does create another log file in the same directory
ls /usr/lib/hadoop-0.20/logs

hadoop-hadoop-namenode-myservername.out
I am using CDH3, what am I doing wrong?
Thank you,

Mark
