[Snort-users] Snort not connecting to MySQL

The command line parameters '-A fast' and '-b' will override the 'output
database: ..." option in snort.conf everytime.  Drop these command line
parameters and add the following to snort.conf:  

  output alert_fast: alert.fast   [or whatever file name you want to use in
place of alert.fast]
  output log_tcpdump: snort.log   [or whatever file name you want to use in
place of snort.log]

I am executing snort with the following command line:

/usr/sbin/snort -A fast -b -l /var/log/snort -d -D -i eth0 -c

It listens on eth0 but should send reports out via eth1 (snort is
running on the firewall).  The command above outputs nothing but the

Initializing Output Plugins!

Then nothing.  No connections to mysql or anything.  But it is working
just fine.  When I check in /var/log/snort I see exactly what I should
be seeing on the snort box itself.
