I have a Windows running a CentOS6 (32-bit) on a VMWare virtual machine. I am attemping to install a single-node Cloudera Hadoop according to these instructions.
At one point I was asked to issue
for x in `cd /etc/init.d ; ls hadoop-hdfs-*` ; do sudo service $x start ; done
and I received the following error:
ls: cannot access hadoop-hdfs-*: No such file or directory
cd into my
/etc/ directory, and issue
ls, I receive the following:
ls: reading directory .: Input/output error
From googling I learned that the
ls: reading directory .: Input/output error can occur when hardware is failing. I don't think that is related to my problem, because the
/etc/ directory is the only place where I cannot issue an
ls, plus I am on a virtual machine with a new computer.
