You need too use a older version of thrift.  I have 0.6.0. That works for me. Install it in the machine u build it on by hand. The maven dependency may not be available for a older version.

Hi all,

I'm having some trouble compiling Flume from the github source.
I'm using thrift 0.8.0. Compilation has trouble finding thrift packages.
Errors are of the form:

"package org.apache.thrift.scheme does not exist"

How can I point maven to the right thrift libraries/add it as a dependency?

Thanks a lot,
Bharath Ravi
