none is better. they are compiled with different options. use the one
that suits most your requirements. if you don't know what your
requirements are, get snort-bloat-1.9.0-1snort.i386.rpm. or better
read the documentation carefully and compile from source.
each of these rpm packages has its own specificities. these are
indicated by the keywords following the "snort-" prefix in the package
for example, snort-mysql-1.9.0-1snort.i386.rpm is compiled with mysql
support while snort-bloat-1.9.0-1snort.i386.rpm is compiled with many
(all ?) of the options that are supported by snort (support of
different databases, support of flexresp, snmp etc.). Of course, if
you want to customise the supported options depending on your
requirements, you can use the snort-1.9.0-1snort.src.rpm source
