Setting up Mahout in Linux

A few simple steps to get Mahout running in Linux. This is mostly about the bash script to get it to run easily

You’ll need to install Java first, then download and unpack the mahout distribution.

I then placed it in /usr/local/mahout

To be able to run Mahout from the path, the following bash script was placed in /usr/local/bin

Update the paths as relevant

#!/bin/bash
export MAHOUT_JAVA_HOME=/usr/lib/jvm/java-8-oracle/jre/
export MAHOUT_HOME=/usr/local/mahout
export MAHOUT_HEAPSIZE=4000
export MAHOUT_LOCAL=y
