This is a CDH4 installation guide, which will give you some basic ideas on installation of Hadoop. 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 CDH4. 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 CDH4 to run properly. I mainly used the “CDH4 Installation Guide” from Cloudera to create this guide. To see the guide, you simple click the “CDH4″ link below and the guide will open as a pdf file. Please enjoy.
