      Description

      I get the following exception message when failing to initialize HiveContext. This is hard to figure out why HiveContext failed to initialize. Actually I build spark with hive profile enabled. The reason the HiveContext failed is due to I didn't start hdfs service. And actually I can see the full stacktrace in spark-shell. And I also can see the full stack trace in python2. The issue only exists in python2.x

      Traceback (most recent call last):
        File "<stdin>", line 1, in <module>
        File "/Users/jzhang/github/spark/python/pyspark/sql/context.py", line 430, in createDataFrame
          jdf = self._ssql_ctx.applySchemaToPythonRDD(jrdd.rdd(), schema.json())
        File "/Users/jzhang/github/spark/python/pyspark/sql/context.py", line 691, in _ssql_ctx
          "build/sbt assembly", e)
      Exception: ("You must build Spark with Hive. Export 'SPARK_HIVE=true' and run build/sbt assembly", Py4JJavaError(u'An error occurred while calling None.org.apache.spark.sql.hive.HiveContext.\n', JavaObject id=o34))
