[Snort-devel] Snort Dies Unexpectedly

Were there any messages in syslog about startup failures?  You need to
run Snort *exactly* the same way the snortd script is running it without
enabling daemon mode.  There is probably a run time configuration
problem that it's erroring out with that you might not be getting for
one reason or another.  "Silent" failures without core files are almost
always a non-starting issue.  If there isn't a message in syslog that
says "Snort initialization completed successfully, Snort running", then
it didn't restart properly.


P.S. Thanks for the detailed bug report!
