Installation

Why am I getting splunkd "ERROR: pid 8610 terminated with signal 11" after fedora 3.11.10 Splunk install?

Hi

Did anybody face following issue with fedora 3.11.10 splunk installation:

[root@splunk bin]# ./splunk start

Splunk> All batbelt. No tights.

Checking prerequisites...
Checking http port [8000]: open
Checking mgmt port [8089]: open
.....
.....
All preliminary checks passed.

Starting splunk server daemon (splunkd)...

ERROR: pid 8610 terminated with signal 11

splunkweb process is able to start without any issue. I have tried clean uninstall and re-install with both rpm and tar packages: splunk-6.1.3-220630-Linux-i686.tgz

Requesting splunk team and community members to help resolve the issue.

Thanks

Sig 11 is SIGSEGV - boundary violation. It signifies an out-of-bounds access which in turn suggests a hardware fault (usually RAM or processor) or attempting to run code on the wrong architecture.

On the whole a Splunk installation is self-contained enough that it is dependent only on the right minimum kernel version, all substantial support libraries being statically linked or packaged locally with it. That said, I don't think it is certified to run on Fedora.
