The snort manual states:
Changes Snort's root directory to chroot after ini-
tialization. Please note that all log/alert file-
names are relative to the chroot directory if
chroot is used.
When I run 'snort -c snort.conf -l /usr/snort/log -u 100 -g 100
-t /usr/snort -D', the chroot option have no effect. Snort is logging to
/usr/snort/log/* as usual. I was expecting an error stating that
/usr/snort/usr/snort/log does not exist (chroot-dir + log-dir).
This is reproducable every time.
Compiled and run under FreeBSD 4.7.
