4.2 install solaris 64 bit intel prerequisites warnings

Path Finder

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
                (i86pc) 4.2

Select package(s) you wish to process (or 'all' to process
all packages). (default: all) [?,??,q]: a

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/

any thoughts?

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
