Ok, can you be a bit less vague about your setup? it's hard to debug system 
configuration problems without knowing what kind of system you have. It 
sounds like one or more of your network interfaces don't have proper Linux 
drivers, but that's an educated guess at this point.

Based on the problem being reported I assume you are running Linux. What 
distro? what release?

What kind of network adapter is snort listening on?

Do *all* of your network interfaces work normally? do you have drivers for 
all of them? Are you using a custom kernel? what libpcap do you have (ie: 
do you have a broken redhat libpcap or a real one?)
