Hello every one
I've the same problem of Dean Davids

database: 'mysql' support is not compiled into this build of snort

ERROR: If this build of snort was obtained as a binary distribution (e.g.,
or Windows), then check for alternate builds that contains the necessary
'mysql' support.

If this build of snort was compiled by you, then re-run the
the ./configure script using the '--with-mysql' switch.
For non-standard installations of a database, the '--with-mysql=DIR'
syntax may need to be used to specify the base directory of the DB install.

See the database documentation for cursory details (doc/README.database).
and the URL to the most recent database plugin documentation.
Fatal Error, Quitting..

I compiled my snort
 ./configure --with-mysql=/usr/local/mysql
make install

I run ldconfig with /usr/lib/mysql in  /etc/ld.so.conf and
/usr/local/mysql/lib/mysql in /etc/ld.so.conf
but result is same.
How do I resolve the problem?
