Those RPMS were compiled on redhat 7.2 and supposedly they are binary
compatible across major revision numbers so you shouldn't have
problems but you may with the various database dependencies should you
choose to use one of those packages.

Look at the /etc/rc.d/init.d/snortd and then look at the Writing Snort

at www.snort.org
