Hi to all!

I've just updated my IDS with snort 1.8 but with the same flags used by
snort 1.7 (-A full -c rulefile -D -b -d -i eth0 -l /var/log/snort -s) and
the same rules files I see this message in syslog before the startup,

modprobe: modprobe: Can't locate module [reading from a


And in the mysql database there is a new sensor, instead of ip:eth0 now I
have ids.domainname.it:[reading from a file]

I assure you that snort is NOT reading from a tpcdump file, is sniffing
correctly ;)

The ethernet is an Intel eepro100

Any ideas?



What is the [1:0:0] in the alerts?
