It seems like there's something wrong with the /etc/rc.d/init.d/snortd script,
and not with snort itself. Check to make sure that you don't have a config
file error with 'snort -T'. If that works, then check to see that snort is
working 'snort -vd'. If all that works, then it's a problem with your script.
