      Description

      Seems to me that the installation of the openJDK failed. The failure is not consistent. It fails for me for more than 50% of times. It only fails when "whirr.env.repo=cdh3u2" is specified. coincidence?

      Here is the conf file:

      whirr.cluster-name=hadoop
      whirr.instance-templates=1 hadoop-namenode+hadoop-jobtracker+hadoop-datanode+hadoop-tasktracker

      whirr.env.repo=cdh3u2
      whirr.hadoop.install-function=install_cdh_hadoop
      whirr.hadoop.configure-function=configure_cdh_hadoop

      whirr.provider=aws-ec2
      whirr.identity=<deleted>
      whirr.credential=<deleted>

      whirr.hardware-id=t1.micro
      whirr.image-id=us-east-1/ami-baba68d3
      whirr.location-id=us-east-1

        Here is the entire /tmp dir on the instance when the configuration fails. I hope someone can find clue in it.

        Does it work if you use a larger instance? I think this is the root cause here.

        I tried a large instance. It didn't work. I looked at the /tmp/logs dir on the instance. The error was the same as micro instance (badlogs.tar.gz).

        I have also tried to use another image. Everything works out after I changed to ubuntu 10.04 (us-east-1/ami-349b495d).

        We are running all the integration tests on Ubuntu 10.04. I will go through your logs. What OS is us-east-1/ami-baba68d3?

        Andrei, Thanks for your help. us-east-1/ami-baba68d3 is ubuntu 11.10 x64. Since we are on this topic, is there any other OS tested regularly?

        Nope. What OS would you like to be tested as part of the release process?

        No, noting in particular. 10.04 is good enough for me.
