It looks like you are using a Linux or some other UNIX box. You are not
specifying snort configuration file "snort.conf" on the command line. As an
example, if snort.conf file is present in /etc/snort directory, use the
following command line:

snort -c /etc/snort/snort.conf

Change the path if snort.conf is in some other directory.
