Re: Using kudu with Python

Thank you very much Mike for the follow-up!

 

Our client wanted us to stop using python, so I cannot verify your solution.

 

The system is CentOS 7.4.1708. 

 

I will return to this Jira issue in future if there is a need to continue with python-kudu.

 

Best Regards

Re: Using kudu with Python

With Centos 7 I think the only thing required to make "pip install kudu-python" work out-of-the-box is to add the symlinks I mentioned. I'm going to work on getting those added by default as part of the parcel install in a future release.

Re: Using kudu with Python

Nope, that "pip install kudu-python" certainly didn't work for me, claiming
"Cannot find installed kudu client.".
Oviously, kudu was accessible from CLI, so I guess it searches for some
directories that don't get created in parcel install.

Re: Using kudu with Python

Yes -- I saw the same behavior, and the workaround is adding the symlinks I detailed in a previous comment in this thread.
