Spark environment setting: where is the local folder after I installed it in Cygwin?


I followed the procedures to install cygwin and then downloaded spark163
in cygwin, it is under /home/RXIE

The Lecture 59 indicates I can go directly to the folder in windows. I couldn’t find a folder with that name: spark-1.6.3-bin-hadoop2.6

Can anyone help? Thank you very much.


There is a folder with name “spark-1.6.3-bin-hadoop2.6” in the screenshot. What is the help that you are looking for?


what I don’t understand is where is the folder “spark-1.6.3-bin-hadoop2.6” in windows file system, note it is only in cygwin. what about if I want to start spark in windows command line?



In windows the location should be “cygwin_installation_path” and then home/username.

Please find the screenshot for reference.



Hope this helps.
It is generally in your C: drive
For ex: I installed Spark on my Windows like below:

If you already Spark installed, easy way to find out is, go to Environment Variables --> SPARK_HOME path

Please confirm if this the one you are looking for.
