I found the solution on whitehats snort forum: Just copy and paste the
classification lines out of vision18.conf (I only took a look at vision18.rules
>8) to classification.config, restart snort and that's it.

Anyway thanx for the help!

If you start out with the official rule set, this app makes it easy to
merge in new official rules and new whitehat rules when they come out.

Subject: [Snort-users] snort 1.8.1 and vision18.rules and mysql

I updated from snort 1.7 to 1.8.1 and am using vision18.rules from
www.whitehats.com. When starting snort I get weird errors saying "Bad
priority setting ..." over and over for vision18.rules. Disabling it in
snort.conf resolves this but I would like to use them. Any hints?

A second prob I have is with mysql: Since I'm no database guru I don't
know how to upgrade the existing snort 1.7 database to 1.8.1 using the
create_mysql. Running it on the existing db gives me error messages
about existing tables (which is ok I know). Did anyone on the list
already upgrade the db and could send me how?
