      Currently, PySpark does not work with Python 3.6.0.

      Running ./bin/pyspark simply throws the error as below:

      Traceback (most recent call last):
        File ".../spark/python/pyspark/shell.py", line 30, in <module>

          cls = _old_namedtuple(*args, **kwargs)
      TypeError: namedtuple() missing 3 required keyword-only arguments: 'verbose', 'rename', and 'module'

      The problem is in https://github.com/apache/spark/blob/3c68944b229aaaeeaee3efcbae3e3be9a2914855/python/pyspark/serializers.py#L386-L394 as the error says and the cause seems because the arguments of namedtuple are now completely keyword-only arguments from Python 3.6.0 (See https://bugs.python.org/issue25628).

      We currently copy this function via types.FunctionType which does not set the default values of keyword-only arguments (meaning namedtuple._kwdefaults_) and this seems causing internally missing values in the function (non-bound arguments).

      This ends up as below:

      import types
      import collections
      def _copy_func(f):
          return types.FunctionType(f.__code__, f.__globals__, f.__name__,
              f.__defaults__, f.__closure__)
      _old_namedtuple = _copy_func(collections.namedtuple)
      _old_namedtuple(, "b")

      If we call as below:

      >>> _old_namedtuple("a", "b")
      Traceback (most recent call last):
        File "<stdin>", line 1, in <module>
      TypeError: namedtuple() missing 3 required keyword-only arguments: 'verbose', 'rename', and 'module'

      It throws an exception as above becuase _kwdefaults_ for required keyword arguments seem unset in the copied function. So, if we give explicit value for these,

      >>> _old_namedtuple("a", "b", verbose=False, rename=False, module=None)
      <class '__main__.a'>

      It works fine.

      It seems now we should properly set these into the hijected one.
