Can I install Spark 2 on the QuickStart VM?

Can I install Spark 2 on the QuickStart VM?

Explorer

I'm interested in learning Spark, but I'm of the impression that it would be better to focus on learning based upon Spark 2, instead of Spark 1.x.  

 

Spark 1.6 is part of the current Quickstart VM (v5.12), but I was wondering if it was possible to install Spark 2 instead?  I migrated to Parcels and enabled Cloudera Manager on the Quickstart VM, but I don't see Spark 2. 

 

Is there a way of installing Spark 2 on the Quickstart VM?

Yes, just need to download a parcel for Spark2, activate it, and then go to Services -> Add new service.

for Cloudera manager, it needs minimum 8GB RAM. Is there any way I can replace current spark 1.6 version to 2 without using parcel so that I can run the VM with less than 8 GB?

Unfortunately I was never able to get this working.  The cluster would crash, things wouldn't work, etc... I'm going to sit this one out for now and just wait until an updated QuickStart VM comes up with Spark 2.  I'll just use a different distro. for now for Spark 2.
