Spark packaging


See Scala packaging for details on Fedora support for the Scala toolchain; briefly, we have version 2.10.3 of Scala in F19, F20, and Rawhide and sbt 0.13.1 is under review in Fedora as well.

There is no official release of Spark that works with Scala 2.10.3 (or SBT 0.13.x), but the 0.9 branch of the upstream Spark repository works with Scala 2.10.

Current Status

With some light Fedora-specific patching, we are able to build and run the Scala 2.10 branch of Spark locally in Fedora against our SBT and Scala. Once SBT is available, other things should follow pretty quickly. Detailed dependency information is below.


Spark requires Scala and SBT in order to build. (Note that there is a Maven build option as well, but it requires artifacts that need to be built with SBT.)

The easiest and most up-to-date place to see the dependency list is in the Spark repository itself, but here we will call out some notable dependencies that aren't already in Fedora:
