I am trying to set up the hive. I am using this guide: https://cwiki.apache.org/Hive/gettingstarted.html and I'm stuck at setting up /tmp and /user/hive/warehouse dirs. First of all, it seems to me a little bit strange that hive requires to change my /tmp dir to HDFS. Won't this affect other apps which are using /tmp dir? Anyway, I would like to change /tmp path to something different. I was hopping that I'll find config in ./hive/conf/ but there are only config template files. Where is the actual config file?
And by the way, in ./hive/bin I've found hive-config.sh. I can't find anything in wiki about this file, what does it do?
I am using the hive-0.8.1.tar.gz version.
