The exact line i'm starting snort with is:

/usr/sbin/snort -m 027 \
  -D \
  -S "HOME_NET=[195.64.xx.xxx/32,]" \
  -c /etc/snort/snort.conf \
  -l /var/log/snort \
  -b \
  -d \
  -q \
  -u snort \
  -g snort \
  -i eth0

And if I run that on the commandline I get:

[23:12] [root at ...7086...:~] # /usr/sbin/snort -m 027 -D -S "HOME_NET=[192.168.xx.xxx/32,]" -c /etc/snort/snort.conf -l /var/log/snort -b -d -q -u snort -g snort -i eth0

[23:12] [root at ...7086...:~] # 

So it must be something else. For now I have commented out the messages
in the sourcecode, but this certainly isn't the way to do it...

Especially not in a Debian Package ;)
