SuSE Linux search error

Users running Splunk on a SuSE server may see the error message:

Unable to get a properly formatted response from the server; canceling the current search

when executing a search. Alternatively, the dashboard just won't display properly.

To resolve this issue, edit the /etc/mime.types file. Delete (or comment out) these two lines:

text/x-xsl xsl
text/x-xslt xslt xsl

Also change this line:

text/xml xml

to:

text/xml xml xsl

With these changes in place, restart Splunk and clear your browser cache.

Note: If you are using a proxy, you will need to flush that as well.
