Hi Snort Team,

Hope you are doing well.

I am installing Snort and OpenAPPID on my UBUNTU machine(Ubuntu 14.04.1
LTS). I was following the instructions listed on this
<http://blog.snort.org/2014/03/openappid-install-video.html> website. I am
hitting an issue in the 5th Step- Enabling OpenAppID in Snort.
I appended preprocessor appid : app_stats_filename appstats-unified.log,
app_stats_period 60, app_detector_dir /usr/local/lib/openappid in the
snort.conf file and executed [snort -c /etc/snort/snort.conf -T] to check
if the configuration was clean or not. I ran in to the following error
Reputation config:
WARNING: Can't find any whitelist/blacklist entries. Reputation
Preprocessor disabled.
*ERROR: /etc/snort/snort.conf(515) Unknown preprocessor: "appid".*
Fatal Error, Quitting..

Some details on Snort:

Can you help me to debug this issue? Many thanks in advance!!
