Re allz, here the config of my snort, it's the default one with some 
modifies but nothing other... tfile he system run perfectly, it's an 
openbsd 2.9 with a recompiled kernel.... all run correctly but snort 
no... I just installed the 1.8.4, but it's the something, but I have see 
a very nice thing...
This night it run perfetly, I have monitored it with the TOP command... 
all ok...
This morning I saw the top... and... again... :(
but I saw a very strange thing!

load averages:  1.26,  1.28,  1.25 
                                              10:58:58
46 processes:  2 running, 43 idle, 1 zombie
CPU states: 82.2% user,  0.0% nice, 13.7% system,  3.6% interrupt,  0.5% 
idle
Memory: Real: 16M/27M act/tot  Free: 2144K  Swap: 6432K/101M used/tot

   PID USERNAME PRI NICE  SIZE   RES STATE WAIT     TIME    CPU COMMAND
  1178 root      60    0 6492K 5604K run   -      563:04 85.45% snort


as you can see the top recognize him as a USER program, and not as a 
system program... when snort run corretly, it's on the SYSTEM part and 
not user....

any idea?
