cloudera CDH5 install error

cloudera CDH5 install error

I am trying to install CDH5 on centOS. My cloudera downloads is at at/home/cloudera/Downloads. But when I follow the instruction, I got this error. Could anyone help?

root@localhost ~]# sudo yum --nogpgcheck localinstall cloudera-cdh-5-0.x86_64.rpm
Loaded plugins: fastestmirror, refresh-packagekit, security

First, are you sure you want to install CDH without Cloudera Manager?  Cloudera Manager allows you to use parcels which will cut down on the amout of manual configuration and maintenance required by using CDH only.  The instructions I think you are following are intended for those who are not using Cloudera Manager so we need to be sure that you know that is what you need/want.


Next, the error from yum says "Cannot open: cloudera-cdh-5-0.x86_64.rpm. Skipping"


We should start with OS troubleshooting since yum says it cannot access the file:


- Does the file exist in the current working directory (ls -l)

- Does the user with which I am running yum have access to read from the file?

- Enable verbose logging for yum: add the "--verbose" argument
