Can you start snort in gdb? Like gdb /usr/local/bin/snort.
Then: set args ......
The arguments you give snort to startup? Then type run. When the assert happens can you type bt? Meaning backtrace? That would help. It might just be that the snort developers already have enough info with your current mail though. Just trying to help. Thanks, Reinoud
