I have installed cloudera Virtual machine for linux 2.6 but I didn't get root permission for that. Does any one know that how can we get that permission? Is there any other way to do that?

You can get root privilege by using sudo without any password. You can switch to root user by using "sudo su"

Hey I did that command but still getting one issue. I want to run my hadoop program
sudo su hdfs
cd eclipse/
its show me permission denied.
Do you have any idea why its give me such permission denied?
As per your commands you are switching current user to "hdfs". If the hdfs user don't have permissions to eclipse directory, it will give this error. May be you can use "sudo cd eclipse/" or you can change permissions to eclipse directory and parent directory.
