Was wondering if anyone has been able to get Splunk to work properly with FreeBSD v10 or the pkgng installation. A "pkg add" command fails due to the lack of a missing manifest file. I am not sure how to work around this and would really like to test Splunk under FBSD10. Appreciate any thoughts or feedback.
Have you tried the using the non-native installer?
Doing the steps from the Splunk doc:
mkdir -p /opt
tar -xzf splunk-6.1.1.tar.gz -C /opt
cat << EOF >> /boot/loader.conf
kern.maxdsiz="2147483648" # 2GB
kern.dfldsiz="2147483648" # 2GB
cat << EOF >> /etc/sysctl.conf
Making sure you have COMPAT7 binary compatibility in your kernel and splunk will start just fine.
