I will. Is there a patch for this one;

Jan 14 06:59:17 sandy snort: ioctl(SIOCGIFMTU):Invalid argument
Jan 14 06:59:17 sandy snort: ioctl(SIOCGIFMTU):Invalid argument

Jan 14 06:59:17 sandy snort: ERROR: Can not get MTU of an interface xl0! 

Snort 1.7 on OpenBSD 2.6 x386. Snort 1.7 on OpenBSD 2.8 doesn't produce this
error.

Thanks. Just committed both, still banging my head to fix some other bugs,
anyone is volountering testing some patches on OpenBSD 2.6? (don't have this
version around ;(). Blame me for this problematic stuff with 1.7 release
