I am running snort-1.8.7 on RH 7.3 (libpcap-0.6.2-12).  When I attempt to
start snort, I get the following errors:
Sep  1 20:42:14 pandora snort: Initializing daemon mode
Sep  1 20:42:14 pandora snortd: snort startup succeeded
Sep  1 20:42:14 pandora snort: PID stat checked out ok, PID set to /var/run/
Sep  1 20:42:14 pandora snort: Writing PID file to "/var/run/"
Sep  1 20:42:14 pandora snort: FATAL ERROR: ERROR /etc/snort/snort.conf(242)
=> Unknown argument to http_decode preprocessor: "unicode"
Sep  1 20:42:14 pandora kernel: device eth0 left promiscuous mode

Also, when I attempt to stop snort I get the following error:
Sep  1 20:42:01 pandora snortd: snort shutdown failed

This is strange because this seemed to work out the box on my laptop.  Can
anyone help?
