Hive partition problem
hi,

We setup a new hive 0.9 client, Found some sql did not work, for example

hive> create table t1(a int) partitioned by ( dt int );
OK
Time taken: 0.097 seconds
hive> load data local inpath '/tmp/t' into table t1 partition (dt=111);
Copying data from file:/tmp/t
Copying file: file:/tmp/t
Loading data to table default.t1 partition (dt=111)
OK
Time taken: 0.375 seconds
hive> show partitions t1;
OK
dt=111
Time taken: 0.108 seconds
hive> alter table t1 drop partition ( dt=111 );
FAILED: Error in semantic analysis: Partition not found dt = 111
hive> alter table t1 drop partition ( dt='111' );
FAILED: Error in semantic analysis: Partition not found dt = '111'
So, how to delete the partition?
