[Snort-users] Wrong pid Saved on OpenBSD?

No problem, I know I didn't update the code from cvs since before christmas
so I probably missed that. Ok I just grabbed the latest from cvs (1.7b9),
make clean, configure, make, test run and make install.

1.7b9 on OpenBSD 2.8 x386

'ps ax' PID = 26958
> /var/run/snort_rl0.PID = 26958


1.7b9 on OpenBSD 2.8 x386

'ps ax' PID = 7429
> /var/run/snort_rl0.PID = 7429


Looks fixed to me! Thank you sir.

Tye

Would you mind to verify the code from CVS? :)
(or http://snort.sourceforge.net/snort-daily.tar.gz), I fixed this problem
on 29th of December. Hope it works now :)

CVS log:
----------------------------
revision 1.43
date: 2000/12/29 15:48:23;  author: fygrave;  state: Exp;  lines: +3 -3
Some logistic error: 'pid' in pid file in daemon_mode was pid of parent
because pid file was created before fork().
