namenode not in tmp, doesn't start
Hello,

I'm just starting out with Hadoop. 
As generally advised, I configured namenode to a directory other than /tmp.
When I do this, and try start-all.sh, I get the exception below. 
Formatting namenode does not help.
Any suggestions?

Thanks in advance. 

Regards,
Vinutha
