Hi Sandro,

First of all, thank you Sandro for your contrib with your site.

I installed the snort you packed in rpm and got a strange result. Well,
first let me show the sistem: RedHat 7.1, kernel 2.4.2-2, mysql-3.23.36-1,
libpcap-0.4-39 (all rpm).
I configured snort to log in a remote mysql server where I have another
snort logging. It started perfectly but there were no new sensor id added in
the table snort.sensor.
For testing I did: "ping -s 65507" the snort died. Here is the
output of "gdb snort core":

(gdb) backtrace

<_dl_fini>, stack_end=0xbffffb1c)

The strange thing is that the other machine where I have snort and libpcap
compiled locally the snort don't die.

Could anyone help me?
