Do you happen to know when they will support Hue on CentOS 7?

Re: Hue Install Fails on RHEL 7 .. expecting python 2.6 .. rhel 7 defaults to phython 2.7

@ajaysingh, @Neeraj Sabharwal is correct. I suggest you use the python virtualenv to workaround this requirement.

@Scott Shaw Scott i have a sever which doesn't connect to the internet, could you provide detailed steps on how virtualenv can be installed and employed to resolve the Hue issue on CentOS 7.2.. Your inputs are much appreciated...

Dear @ajaysingh

Effectively, Hue is not supported neither CentOS 7 nor RHEL 7 in HDP 2.3.

However, if you want to install Hue on HDP 2.3 you must remove hue 2.6 packages, i.e, yum list hue*, yum remove hue*.

After that follow the procedure to Installing Hue 3.9 on HDP 2.3 – Amazon EC2 RHEL 7:

http://gethue.com/hadoop-hue-3-on-hdp-installation-tutorial.

For me works on HDP 2.3 on a cluster of 4 nodes on Oracle Linux 7 on Azure without Kerberos.

Recommendations:

1)Complement the steps in the above link with https://docs.hortonworks.com/HDPDocuments/HDP2/HDP-2.3.0/bk_installing_manually_book/content/ch_inst...

2)Create hue linux user, before installing Hue 3.9 for example: id uid=1023(hue) gid=54324(hadoop) groups=54324(hadoop),100(users),1023(hue)

3)Create hdfs directories: /usr/admin (it must be create for ambary hive views), /usr/hue. hadoop fs -mkdir /user/hue hadoop fs -chown hue:hadoop /user/hue

Best regards,

JAG

Good luck!

you should build HUE in centos7 yourself. I have build HUE 3.12.0 in ubuntu14.4 /centos7 , and install HUE in HDP 2.5.3 in ubuntu14.4/centos7.
