        Please find a boxgrinder appliance. It will create a CentOS 6 appliance with Apache Hadoop set up in a pseudo conf mode along with its Apache Hadoop namenode formatted.
        So right after the first boot, the appliance will start with a working Apache Hadoop cluster.

        I put it in contrib/boxgrinder and it is based on Apache Bigtop 0.2.0

        Here is how I build it for a simple kvm VM (--debug and -f are not really necessary):

        sudo boxgrinder-build --debug -f bigtop_hadoop.appl
        

        Note also It is not worthwhile to add new targets to the Apache Bigtop Makefile because boxgrinder offer many ways and options to build appliances

        Nice stuff, Bruno!

        How about adding it as bigtop-deployment/vm/boxgrinder/bigtop_hadoop.appl and start the regular productions of VMs over at our Jenkins?

        either way works fine for me.
        I will check if the fedora vm has enough disk space.

        so +1?
