Have you bash or dash in use? I think that only the bash is supported on Ubuntu.

I just realise that you have M1 chip on your Mac. You cannot run splunk with it in linux as the architecture is different, only x84 version is supported by splunk. If you want to use splunk on M1/M2 Macs you must run it under macOS and then Rosetta2 will handling emulation between x86 and M-series.

Here is idea https://ideas.splunk.com/ideas/EID-I-515 where is asked that splunk should run also on ARM. It's already in prospect phase, but probably it's still good to give a vote for it 😉

Hi,

I was wondering can i install splunk while running kali linux on vmware fusion on my macbook m1?

I can't seem to get it to install it gives me an error when i type in the command ./splunk start -accept-license.

Currently Splunk is supported only in x86 based linux systems not ARM based. So you cannot run it on your M1.

I'm not sure how well new Parallels will work and does it have small kind of "rosetta" support for linux vms than macOS have? If I recall right there was already that support for 8x6 windows?

Maybe this helps you https://apple.stackexchange.com/questions/450364/parallels-18-already-supports-windows-x64-on-m1 even it's not exactly what you have asked? I haven't try it by myself.
