Steve, I'm responding to your email from 1/6/2014 asking for help with
building on Windows.
I lost the original thread, so I'm pasting the full contents from the
archived message below.
Sorry that this isn't available as a binary distribution yet. That's
definitely a TODO.
It sounds like you've already followed the instructions in BUILDING.txt and
had a successful build for winutils.exe, but not hadoop.dll. Can you
provide more details about the problem you're seeing with the hadoop.dll
I usually run Hadoop on a linux cluster but do most of my development in
single machine mode under windows.
This was fairly straightforward for 0.2. For 1.0 I needed to copy and fix
FileUtils but for 2.0 I am expected to build 2 files from source -
WinUtils.exe and hadoop.dll. There is really only ONE serious windows
configuration: 64 bit intel and NO good reason why these files could not be
available in a binary distribution -
Is anyone using Hadoop 2.X and developing under windows whi can help.
My configuration builds WunUtils.exe but not hadoop.dll and fails trying to
set permission on a staging
I could use help and advice
