Unable to start splunk

I installed Splunk on a CentOS virtual machine 6 with the rpm package during the installation I had no problem.
Splunk is installed in the / opt / splunk and it says you have to start it using the command / opt / splunk / bin / splunk start, but I got this as output:-bash: / opt / splunk / bin / splunk: / lib/ld-linux.so.2: bad ELF interpreter: No such file or directory
What should I do?

You downloaded the wrong architecture. Get the proper 32 or 64 bit for your system.

Don't work, same output.

Ok, so at the command line try;

yum list installed glibc

In that list should be glibc.i686, if it isn't then type;

yum install glibc.i686

Is it 32bit or 64bit OS and which version of Splunk did you install?

Have you sudo'ed before trying to run the command?

That looks a little like the error you get when trying to run splunkd.

To start it and to be absolutely sure we're talking about the same method;
navigate to /opt/splunk/bin
Once there type;
./splunk start
including the "." at the start of the command. Let us know if that works.
