Despite the error above, the Hive CLI should prompt you for a query with "hive>". Please, have a look a the end of my execution:

$ hive
log4j:ERROR Could not instantiate class [org.apache.hadoop.hive.shims.HiveEventCounter].
java.lang.RuntimeException: Could not load shims in class org.apache.hadoop.log.metrics.EventCounter
log4j:ERROR Could not instantiate appender named "EventCounter".

Logging initialized using configuration in jar:file:/usr/local/apache-hive-0.13.0-bin/lib/hive-common-0.13.0.jar!/hive-log4j.properties

Such an error is because a version missmatching when starting a Hive component, but nothing important.
