Notes: Installing single/multi node hadoop cluster on ubuntu 12.04

1. Installing java6

cd ~/ wget; chmod +x; sudo ./

Script will build packages from source and place them in local repo, then they can be installed e.g.:

sudo apt-get install sun-java6-jdk sun-java6-fonts sun-java6-source 

You can see all available packages in /var/local/oab/deb

Remember to select the right version:

sudo update-alternatives --config java 

To setup everything else (like browser plugin, keytool, etc.) you can use this (it will be a long list!)
