I am trying to install 4.2 on a 64 bit intel solaris box. I get prerequisite warnings during the pkgadd command:
# pkgadd -d ./splunk-4.2-96430-solaris-10-intel.pkg
The following packages are available:
1 splunk Splunk
Select package(s) you wish to process (or 'all' to process
all packages). (default: all) [?,??,q]: a
Processing package instance <splunk> from </home/cwheelus/splunk-4.2-96430-solaris-10-intel.pkg>
Please specify base installation directory, or leave blank for /opt:
Using </opt> as the package base directory.
## Processing package information.
## Processing system information.
## Verifying package dependencies.
The </bin/uname> package "" is a prerequisite package
and should be installed.
The </bin/mv> package "" is a prerequisite package and
should be installed.
Do you want to continue with the installation of <splunk> [y,n,?]
Is it safe to continue?
I checked and both uname and mv are present under /bin/
It's a misconfiguration of the package depend file. The file is used to define prerequisite for the package itself (eg. reference packages which needs to be installed, before/after installing this package)
See also man depend
You'll find the file and its entries here: /var/sadm/pkg/splunk/install/depend
@splunk-package-maker: Please, update the depend file - thanks
However, it's fine to continue since there is no impact at all
