[Snort-users] barnyard errors

I acutally reconfiged barnyard with the --enable-mysql switch.
It wasn't working initially, then someone else on the list recommended I
locate the lines in the configure file and change them from
mysql_connect to my_connect.
After that, I was able to run configure and install it.

Is that the right way to go about this or no?

Should I give it another go?

Shot in the dark here, but are you sure mysql was enabled during the
configure and subsequant make? If not, support for the op_acid plugin
may not be there.
