I can do
select a.x, b.y from db1.table1 a join db2.table2 b on a.id=b.uid

but I cannot do:
desc db1.table1
This throws error:
hive> desc db1.table1;
FAILED: Execution Error, return code 1 from org.apache.hadoop.hive.ql.exec.DDLTask

Is there a reason this doesn't work? Is there a patch that fixes this?
