-bash: /opt/splunk/bin/splunk: No such file or directory

When I try start splunk without sudo (or even logged in as root), I get a "no such file or directory" error. It works with sudo, but then ps shows nothing's running and I can't access it through the web portal.

$ /opt/splunk/bin/splunk start
-bash: /opt/splunk/bin/splunk: No such file or directory
$ sudo /opt/splunk/bin/splunk start
$ ps aux | grep splunk
marco    25963  0.0  0.1   7972   900 pts/0    S+   22:58   0:00 grep splunk

Any ideas what's up? I've accepted the license (sudo splunk start --accept-license) and changed the port to 8001 (sudo ./splunk set web-port 8001).

Solved it! I had installed the 32 bit deb on a 64 bit server. 😕

Why hasn't this been resolved though? It would take no time to fix that issue and update the text message to say that you are using 32 bit on 64 server
