  Note:
  • For production environments, 64-bit packages are recommended. Except as noted above, CDH4 provides only 64-bit packages.
  • Cloudera has received reports that our RPMs work well on Fedora, but we have not tested this.
  • If you are using an operating system that is not supported by Cloudera's packages, you can also download source tarballs from Downloads.
