Duplicating this issue from SQOOP-175, which is in the cloudera JIRA
From SQOOP-175's description by Ken Krugler :
On Mac OS X 10.6.3, the TestNamedFifo.testNamedFifo() test fails. The error is caused by the Shell.execCommand() use of mknod, since (at least on my Mac) mknod doesn't know about the --mode=xxx parameter or the -p parameters.
Based on http://stackoverflow.com/questions/4546356/is-mknod-portable-if-not-what-is-the-alternative, I switched the code to use mkfifo and it now passes all tests.
The change to NamedFifo.create() is trivial:
Shell.execCommand("mkfifo", "-m", "0" + modeStr, filename);
But I have no way of trying this out on other OSes, so it might create a different compatibility issue.
