as far as rpm is concerned hadoop is _not_ installed. Whenever possible use your package manager (eg rpm, yum etc) to install software. If you want more help please specify what distribution and version you are running and what (in terms of the bigger picture) you are trying to do or install.
Hi evo2, Thanks for your quickly response and clarification.
Below are the source files, I am using CentOS 6.4
I am just trying to install and carry out single node operations on hadoop along with sqoop and pig.
1* Is there any command or way such that, for rpm to know that dependency is installed (like a sync from all installed sources).
2* Having download restrictions, file repository will be the only way to use yum. Hence, I had not preferred yum for installing files. Kindly correct me, if wrong.
3* I further proceeded to download tar gz file for pig and install.

Reason: Left out without a note of thanks :)
For yum command, we should create a repository, give the link to download and install using the command.
Due to file download restrictions, I cant download directly from a url, but rather redirect it to a local repository or in network. Hence, I did not have much of the chance and gave preference to tar / rpm when I had the source.
Sure, I would follow up a tutorial for the installation procedure.
