Hello All,

I'm attempting to start snort using the command below, but I keep
getting this error. Any suggestions?

# /etc/rc.d/init.d/snortd start
: bad interpreter: No such file or directory

I checked and /bin/sh is installed.

# /bin/sh
sh-2.05b#

I checked the archives and google, but have found little help other then
to check for /bin/sh. Here is what my snortd file looks like. Maybe
there something in there more obvious to someone other than me. Thanks
for your help.

#!/bin/sh
#
# snortd         Start/Stop the snort IDS daemon.

# chkconfig: 2345 40 60
