You are not really giving us enough info to diagnose the exact problem
(ie relevant info from snort.conf and the what command line switches you
are using to start snort), which is probably why no one is replying. 

The -b option will only affect "log" output. If you are in fact using
"LOG_ALERTS" as the priority for syslog output, then that may be the
problem. LOG_ALERTS is not a valid priority for syslog. Try LOG_ALERT
(no "S") and make sure syslogd is setup correctly to handle that
facility/priority combination (man syslog.conf).
