libhdfs problems

So a few months ago I posted this question:

https://community.hortonworks.com/questions/222259/libhdfs-missing.html

But I realized I did a terrible job posting the question, and consequently, I didn't really get the help I was hoping for.

So attempt #2:

I am running HDP 3.0.1 on Ubuntu 16.04 nodes. We initially installed 3.0.0, and successfully upgraded later. The cluster itself is running fine and Ambari is a great administration tool. However...

libhdfs.so.0.0.0 does not exist in our cluster.

As you can see, even installing the Hortonworks package that should install libhdfs doesn't install the actual .so file. Just a dead symlink.

Has anyone else experienced this problem?

Note: I can also reproduce this problem on a fresh Ubuntu 16.04 VM. The initial install of libhdfs0 and libhdfs0-3-0-1-0-187 don't install an actual .so file.

So having now installed a 3.1.0 cluster on Ubuntu, I see this package still doesn't install an actual .so file for libhdfs.

root@use1-monstage-1:~# find /usr -name libhdfs*
/usr/share/doc/libhdfs0-3-1-0-0-78
/usr/lib/ams-hbase/lib/hadoop-native/libhdfs.so
/usr/lib/ams-hbase/lib/hadoop-native/libhdfs.a
/usr/hdp/3.1.0.0-78/hadoop/lib/native/libhdfs.a
/usr/hdp/3.1.0.0-78/usr/lib/libhdfs.so
root@use1-monstage-1:~# ls -larth /usr/hdp/3.1.0.0-78/usr/lib/libhdfs.so
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 16 Dec  6 13:58 /usr/hdp/3.1.0.0-78/usr/lib/libhdfs.so -> libhdfs.so.0.0.0
root@use1-monstage-1:~# ls -larth /usr/lib/ams-hbase/lib/hadoop-native/libhdfs.so
-rwxr-xr-x 1 root root 292K Dec  7 18:13 /usr/lib/ams-hbase/lib/hadoop-native/libhdfs.so

The ams-hbase package seems to have an actual libhdfs.so file, but trying to link against that doesn't work correctly.

Is there any chance we'll get libhdfs properly packaged for HDP?

I have the same problem on HDP 3.1.4.0-315

What is the solution ?
