In recompiling the native libraries for Hadoop 2.6.4 for ARM64, I need protobuf 2.5.0 for ARM64. But when I try to build protobuf 2.5.0 on an ARM64 cpu, I get the 'atomicops' error shown below. This error seems similar to this bug report for Solaris:
but in my case it is for ARM64. It would be great if someone could either suggest a workaround or suggest how to fix the protobuf 2.5.0 make files. Unfortunately the build of the Hadoop native libraries is insisting on protobuf 2.5.0 so using a more recent protobuf version doesn't appear to be an option.. 

Here is my make listing, with the error shown at the end:

ARM64 support was added after 2.5.0, so you probably have to patch the fix back to 2.5.0 in order to compile 2.5.0 for arm64. See the patch:

I had exactly the same problem.

Thanks to Feng Xiao's reply below I was able to make a patch that works for me (on ODROID C2 and Ubuntu Mate), I've put the patch file on my public Dropbox folder.

You can apply it e.g. like that

$ tar xfz protobuf-2.5.0.tar.gz
$ cd protobuf-2.5.0
$ patch -p1 < ../protobuf-2.5.0-arm64.patch

and then configure and build as you would typically do

Hi all,

I am facing issue while configuring Hadoop 3.3.5 on Linux Ubuntu 20.04. Can you direct me to the documentation for setting up Hadoop ARM64 on an Azure VM or any similar resources?

Currently, I'm using the guide Apache Hadoop 3.3.5 – Hadoop: Setting up a Single Node Cluster for the setup process.

The software versions being utilized are:

I would greatly appreciate any assistance provided.
