[Snort-users] barnyard errors

config hostname: xxxxxx
config interface: dc0
config filter: not port 22

processor dp_alert
processor dp_log
processor dp_stream_stat

output alert_fast
output log_dump

output alert_acid_db: mysql, sensor_id 1, database snort, server
localhost, user root, password xxxxxx
 output log_acid_db: mysql, database snort, server localhost, user root,
password xxxxx, detail full

I will change the user for database logging from root once it's all good
and tidy.
Am I supposed to have file names following the alert_fast and log_dump
items?  Initially I had /var/log/snort/fast.alert and
