Try this:

This should detail any problems with Snort configuration

# snort -o -a -e -i eth0 -l /var/log/snort -c /etc/snort/snort.conf -T

Not sure about the startup as we need more info as to what you have
already done.

Subject: [Snort-users] snort rules not being read

I'm running RH7.3, snort-1.8.7, logging to /var/log/snort.

I have two problems: (1)When I boot Linux, snort does not start up and
(2) I
cannot get snort to read in the rules even if I use the command "snort
eth0 -c /etc/snort" after booting.  Below is a portion of the output of
preceeding command.  Does anyone have a configuration that works??

hostname#  snort -i eth0 -c /etc/snort
Log directory = /var/log/snort
