Adding the MapR repository on SUSE

  1. Change to the root user or use sudo.
  2. Use the following command to add the repository for MapR packages, replacing <version> with the version of MapR that you want to install:
    zypper ar http://package.mapr.com/releases/<version>/suse/ maprtech
  3. Use the following command to add the repository for MapR ecosystem packages: (See the MapR Release Notes for the correct paths for all past releases.)
    zypper ar http://package.mapr.com/releases/ecosystem-5.x/suse/ maprecosystem
  4. If your connection to the Internet is through a proxy server, you must set the http_proxy environment variable before installation:
    http_proxy=http://<host>:<port>
                  export http_proxy
  5. Update the system package index by running the following command:
    zypper refresh
  6. MapR packages require a compatibility package in order to install and run on SUSE. Execute the following command to install the SUSE compatibility package:
    zypper install mapr-compat-suse
