Can't install CDH 4.8, Hangs at 40%

Can't install CDH 4.8, Hangs at 40%

Sorry if this appears to be a duplicate, I thought that Cloudera's website lost my original post. 

=================================================================

 

I can't seem to install CDH 4.8, I'm running the binary installer with selinux disabled.  I have tried installing several versions of hadoop and CDH in the past and I think some of those might be blocking this installation somehow.  When I run the binary installer for CDH 4.8, it gets 40% of the way through and just hangs, I have waited up to 15 minutes before and it makes no progress.  At 40% the installer screen says "cloudera-manager-installer".  When I stop it, it says:

 

cloudera-manager-server installation failed. See /var/log/cloudera-manager-installer/3.install-cloudera-manager-server.log for details. Click OK to revert this installation.

 

When I look in that log file, everything looks fine until the line that says I stopped the installation.  This is the abridged version of what i see:

Can somebody please tell me how to fix this?  I really don't want to re-build my VM again.

Master Guru
Does your installation machine require a HTTP/HTTPS proxy to access the internet? If it does, have you tried to configure Yum to use that HTTP/HTTPS proxy as per http://www.centos.org/docs/5/html/yum/sn-yum-proxy-server.html?

This usually happens when you install several versions of software because the yum cache still stays in the server and the new version of software attempt to get the upgraded package from the yum cache.

I would recommend you to clean the yum cache
$ yum clean all

Before starting installation of CDH, remove all the hadoop yum repositories installed on the system.
yum repo location: /etc/yum.repos.d
In that location you will find some cloudera repositories list like
cloudera-local.repo, cloudera-manager.repo, cloudera-cdh4.repo
Delete all the existing cloudera repo files and try running cloudera manager installer

Go for as manual installation that's easier..I still couldn't figure out
why it hangs .. but the manual installation worked..
