I have been trying to install the newer Splunk App for Unix and Linux (5.0.0) on my Splunk recievers. I tried "upgrading" the Nix 4.6 and also tried to install it by itself. The download file from Splunk is a zip file, I was expecting a .tgz file. When I try to install or upgrade from the Splunk GUI, it just gives me a /etc ? app. This directory called etc does get loaded under /opt/splunk/etc/apps. I am not sure how to get this to work. I have NIX 4.6 working fine and have the SplunkTAnix running fine on my forwarders.
I am running Splunk 6.0 on my receivers and forwarders.
