When I try to download the splunk app for unix and linux, all I get is the unix.spl flash file. Is there any way to directly ftp the unix.tar.gz file? I plan to install this on an indexer running RHEL 6.1 under vmware.
An .spl file is just a gzip'd compressed file which is ready for install via the Splunk GUI.
You can uncompress it by
mv unix.spl unix.spl.gz
