This is a CDH3 installation guide, which will give you some basic ideas on installation of Hadoop. This guide also includes how to configure your server and other detailed guides that are related to install CDH3. If you are not interested in those guides, you, simply, may skip them. Everything in this guide is straightforward. We are using Ubuntu Desktop in this tutorial so that even non-linux based operating system users can follow the guide easily. Every step is explained with pictures and comments. Just follow through all the steps and you shouldn’t have any problem installing CDH3. If you hit a wall because of some kind of error occurs during the installation process, please check if there is any spelling or indentation error. These small mistakes can fail CDH3 to run properly. I mainly used the “CDH3 Installation Guide” from Cloudera to install CDH3 and create this guide. To see the guide, you simple click the “CDH3” link below and the guide will open as a pdf file.
