Downloading Cloudera VM 5.1.3 for MacOS


During the October 27 class, it was noted that cloudera-quickstart-vm-4.7.0-0-vmware did not have the necessary libraries to support Hadoop-Streaming for Python Mapper & Reducer. However the Cloydera-Quickstart-VM-5.1.3 does support the libararies.


I cannot find the appropriate download link. I tried to use: however it does not seem to have the necessary files for installation on my MacOS.

Can I please have step-by-step instructions on how to download and install this version of VMWare? Thank you.
