name= DataStax Repo for Apache Cassandra
I tried an uninstall/install in an attempt to fix a startup issue w/ cassandra due a change in the cassandra.yaml
# yum remove dsc12
# rm -rf /var/lib/cassandra
# rm -rf /var/log/cassandra
# rm -rf /etc/cassandra
# yum install dsc12
After a successful install, the dirs cassandra dirs in /var/lib, /var/log and /etc were not created. Seems like 1.2 was installed
rpm -qa | grep cassandra
I don't understand why the reinstall did not deploy the correct directories w/ appropriate file (e.g. cassandra.yaml).
