On my RH7.2. I've recieved pcap_loop_error in dmesg and the whole
network went down..
snort: pcap_loop: recvfrom: Network is down
snort: Snort received signal 3, exiting
This went on for about 2-3 hours, then the network restarted.. Thought
was something with the network driver... Had not set my mind into

and did the even more brilliant "make/make install" the error is
Thanks a lot! ;-)
