hi, i have installed snort 1.6.3 and psql under suse linux 6.4.

i made psql snort < contrib/create_postgresql, the 6 tables were created.

when i start snort by ./snort -c rules1 -l /var/log/snort/ there is the error message
Problem obtaining SENSOR ID (sid) from psql->snort, ->event.

but: the postmaster is running, i can see all 6 tables and have insert and delete priviliges to the tables.
  and first line in rules1: output log_database: psql, dbname=snort, user=user

maybe someone can help me having the same troubles, 
thx a lot, werner
