I have built hadoop for IBM PowerLinux, based on branch-1 source, and I would like to contribute to the Wiki a guide on how to do so. I'm adding here a version for revision and contribution, on MoinMoin wiki format.
A few notes about it and some Jira's related to that:
This is need to compile jsvc binary for power. The latest version of commons-daemon (1.0.10) is not building. There is also a need to apply a patch from fedora project : http://pkgs.fedoraproject.org/gitweb/?p=apache-commons-daemon.git;a=blob_plain;f=apache-commons-daemon-ppc64-configure.patch;hb=53035f61b1bd51026377d5bcbc58d55f7f6e711d
The patch to compile fuse-dfs is not ready yet, but there is a workaround which consists of changing the value of AM_LDFLAGS in Makefile.am file.
Fixed and committed
