After a few hours spent working out why we cannot
connect snort to an Oracle database, I wrote the following
patch which tries to connect to Oracle in stages, and warns you
of some of the common problems and likely solutions.

Summary for those having problems connecting to Oracle:

set ORACLE_HOME
ensure Oracle config file tnsnames.ora is present and correct
set dbname to the name in tnsnames.ora
leave hostname blank
