HUE 3.8 installation on HDP 2.3 & SLES 11 OS


I am trying to install HUE 3.8.1 on HDP 2.3 cluster installed over SLES 11 by following this blog post “

But struggling to get all the prerequisite packages, below are packages which i’m not able to install with zypper(yast): krb5-devel , mysql-devel, openssl-devel , cyrus-sasl-devel , cyrus-sasl-gssapi, sqlite-devel, libtidy , libxml2-devel , libxslt-devel, openldap-devel, python-devel , python-setuptools

are there any online repos available from where i can get these. I was successfully in installing HUE on CentOS HDP cluster using same steps. Realy appreciate Any help and pointers on this.

Hi Saptak Sen,

I try to install HUE 3.9 in CentOS HDP. You said : "I was successfully in installing HUE on CentOS HDP cluster using same steps." Do you use a HUE RPM site to do that or use the step described in “” ?
