I see there are various posts claiming hadoop is available through official debian mirrors (for debian squeeze, i.e. stable):
However, it seems this is not (no longer?) the case:
http://packages.debian.org/search?keywords=hadoop <- the packages are only in unstable?
(I can easily verify this, my debian squeeze box does not find the packages, even after updating)
What happened? I couldn't find any info on whether the packages were removed from squeeze.
I also tried using the Cloudera repository.
Note that the official installation document does not list instructions for Debian, only Ubuntu, Suse and RH.
( see https://docs.cloudera.com/display/DOC/CDH3+Installation)
In fact it seems Debian is not supported at all:
Just for the heck of it, I tried following the Ubuntu instructions, which failed as well.
(the cloudera repository does not have squeeze packages).

So, what's the best way to install Hadoop on Debian Squeeze?
