Using Spark in Fedora 8

Version 1

     

    I found out the hardway that the jre included in the spark download will not work with fedora 8.

     

     

    Since fedora 8 comes with their own jre now, just make sure you have them installed.

     

     

    This is what I have.

     

     

     

    1. rpm -qa|grep icedtea

    java-1.7.0-icedtea-1.7.0.0-0.19.b21.snapshot.fc8

    java-1.7.0-icedtea-plugin-1.7.0.0-0.19.b21.snapshot.fc8

     

     

     

     

     

    Once you have downloaded and extracted the spark tar.gz file, go into the Spark directory and add the following line at the top after #!/bin/sh:

     

     

    app_java_home=/usr/lib/jvm/java-1.7.0-icedtea-1.7.0.0/jre

     

     

    You should now be able to launch spark.
