Thanks Chris, and the others who've answered me here.  I find that it is
working this morning, but wasn't last night.  Perhaps there was something
that was date sensitive or needed to be "touched".

		Hello Gordon,

		Make sure you have the mysql client installed on the sensor.

		./configure --without-server --without-docs --without-bench

		Do a command line check from the client..
		mysql -u user -p -h hostname

		Make sure you have mysql output configured
		output database: alert, mysql, user=user password=password
dbname=snort sensor_name=hostile1 detail=full host=hostname encoding=ascii

		Start up snort without "-D" and check for errors.

		check net connection to Database
		netstat -an |grep EST

		Good Luck

			I'm still learning the ropes when it comes to
putting distributed sensors and consoles together.  Is it possible to run
ACID console with MySQL on the same box as a sensor and have the sensor
report into the database?  If so, I'm not seeing it work here and don't know
where to look next.  I followed the RH 7.3, ACID, etc. doc posted on the
snort docs page, but of course there were some differences...  ACID reports
0 sensors, alerts have been logged to the "alert' log file but I don't see
them in the database.  The sensor appears to be in there properly, though.
