Don't start it in daemon mode until you can run it in non-daemon mode
first.  Then you'll see any other error messages Snort may be firing off
that don't get sent to syslog.  Try that and let us know if it's giving
you any error messages at the command line.  BTW, what command line
switches are you using?
