things are going on, slowly but still.
I've built the new snort 1.8 beta 2 , and used the --enable-debug option.
It seems that things are going all quite good, and $ppp0_ADDRESS is assiged
my.ip.my.ip/ .
The progress I've had it when running snort regularly, not as a daemon.
it worked !  running it as daemon seems to be my problem so meanwhile 
I'm gonna
use it regularly,
i.e. snort -bla -bla -bla & >/dev/null
or something.
any suggestion why could the -D be the problem ?
Is there a better way to run it otherwise than I've mentioned ?
