I have installed cassandra 1.0.1 stable binary in ubuntu server 11.10 amd64. But, when i try to connect using cassandra-cli with:

[default@unknown] connect localhost/9160

The system always stuck, and return this


Any idea? Thanks for the help!

You need to use the semicolon (;) after each command

As poscaman mentions, you do need a semicolon after every command. But, I recommend connecting using the shell options so you can immediately interact with Cassandra:

cassandra-cli -hlocalhost

It's also nicer when you arrow-up in Bash (or similar) to use the CLI again.
