I just installed snort 1.9 on Red Hat 8.0. Used the create_mysql found
in /usr/local/src/snort-1.9.0/contrib/create_mysql. When I try to start
snort I get the following error:

Jan 22 17:11:36 snortr0 snort: Portscan2 config: 
Jan 22 17:11:36 snortr0 snort:     log: /var/log/snort/scan.log

Jan 22 17:11:37 snortr0 snort:     timeout: 60
Jan 22 17:11:37 snortr0 snort: FATAL ERROR: database: mysql_error: Lost
connection to MySQL server during query 
Jan 22 17:11:37 snortr0 kernel: device eth0 left promiscuous mode

Any help would be greatly appreciated.


Thanks
