Start Snort by hand. Don't use a init script for testing.
Start Snort without the -D. That'll send the output to stdout instead of
/dev/null. That should let you see what's breaking. There's also -T that
can test your config. It just verifies syntax--It doesn't protect you
from doing something silly.
