Subject: [Snort-devel] ERROR: unknown logger alert_ex

While trying the Snort++ Extras/loggers/alert_ex, I receive the below error:

dev at ...3545...:/usr/local/snort/etc$ sudo /usr/local/snort/bin/snort -c /usr/local/snort/etc/snort.lua -R /usr/local/snort/etc/sample.rules --daq pcap --pcap-dir=/tmp/pcaps --pcap-show
 --script-path /usr/local/lib/snort_extra -A alert_ex

* This one should be using --plugin-path in stead of --script-path.  I'll update the documentation to make that more clear.  Thanks.
-- Russ, now you have mentioned it, this is totally my mistake; the documentation is correct, the command "I" typed is wrong. Please ignore this.


Finished /usr/local/snort/etc/snort.lua.
ERROR: unknown logger alert_ex


Verifying the logger plugins exit:

dev at ...3545...:/usr/local/snort/etc$ ls -l /usr/local/lib/snort_extra/loggers/
total 40
-rw-r--r-- 1 root root  1645 Oct  5 05:30 alert.lua
-rw-r--r-- 1 root root 33410 Dec 16 12:28 libalert_ex.so

Please note that lualert works just fine.
