Xu Zhenqing,

The quick answer is that ACID does not yet extend the Snort log database
format.  However, in the next version it will.

I suspect the problem you are experiencing is due to the fact that you are
using an older version of Snort.  ACID requires Snort 1.7-beta0 or
later; that is to say, you can only get this version from CVS right
now.  Since Snort 1.6.3, the DB format has changed significantly offering
many advantages.  ACID exploits this new structures.  I strongly suggest
you upgrade your version of Snort.

There has been a new release of ACID (v0.9.3) that fixed some bugs and 
will verify you database version.  It is currently only on the mirror

download: http://www.andrew.cmu.edu/~rdanyliw/snort/acid.0.9.3.tar.gz  

It will be migrated to the primary site shortly:


If you continue having problems, let me know.  Please keep the feedback
