Hi all,

I've installed snort 1.8.1 on a p133 with 48mb ram, linux kernel 2.4.4.
The only log entries I've got are

Oct 25 12:36:39 mx kernel: device eth1 left promiscuous mode
Oct 26 18:12:44 mx kernel: device eth1 left promiscuous mode

and then snort dies.

Config is the following:

var HOME_NET ip.address.of.host/32

var EXTERNAL_NET network.address/subnetmask

var SMTP ip.address.of.host/32


var DNS_SERVERS ip.address.of.host/32

# include info.rules
# include icmp-info.rules

I've never experienced this problem before with previous snort version on other systems although I
had a similar amount of rules running.

I'm grateful for every tip to solve this problem.
