Hi,
I downloaded splunk-4.3.1-119532-Linux-i686.gz on line, extracted, and ran the command /splunk start. However, I got the error message below. I would appreciate if you can advise on how to make it work.

Thanks,
Shangshin

Did you really run splunk start and not splunkd start? You'd get those errors if you tried to run splunkd directly.

You're using the wrong flags for tar. You should be running tar zxvf, not tar xvf, in order to have the file gunzipped.

It turns out linux version only works for wget download. http download won't work.

On the other hand, I got the error message to untar the file on 32-bit linux.

Any advice? Thanks!
