You must specify the full path to the log. In your case:

/home/snort/log. The directory must also be readable and writable by the
user snort or group since that is the uid and gid you are using.

You must also make sure you are logging to mysql only. If you are
logging to syslog also, you must create a dev directory containing the
log device (just cp it from the /dev directory). In this case you must
also start syslogd with the -a /home/snort/dev/log switch.


The nice thing about Windows is - It does not just crash, it displays a
dialog box and lets you press 'OK' first.
