installing python2.6 for universal forwarder

New Member

What's the recommended way to install python2.6 into /opt/splunkforwarder? If I were running Fedora 13, I think I could get away with symlinks, but not for Fedora 14. I'm looking into rpm --relocate, but haven't worked through all the dependencies that introduces.

If you need Python, you should use the regular Splunk package rather than the universal forwarder.

Or alternatively, install python to the standard system/OS location (if it isn't already), put it in the path, and reference that from within the UF.
