RPMs in the HDP repository

In the HDP repository, you will find two different source RPM for each component.

For example, for Hadoop, you should find the following two RPMs:

  • hadoop-x.x.x.x.el6.src.rpm

  • hadoop-source-x.x.x.x.el6.i386.rpm

Two different packages serve the following purpose:

  • The src package is used to re-create the binary in a given environment. You can use the src package of a particular component if you want to rebuild RPM for that component.

  • The source package on the other hand, is used for reference or debuging purpose. The source package is particularly useful when you want to examine the source code of a particular component in a deployed cluster.
