Not sure you would want to go with snort 1.8.4. Some bugs are present in
earlier snort versions. If you are intent on maintaining your rpm
database, mandrake has a good version of snort for download, snort
1.8.7-1mdk. You can grab the src rpm, and rebuild it for your setup. It
rebuilds with all available variations, i.e. mysql, mysql+flexresp,
postgresql, postgresql+flexresp, snort plain, etc.
