Have you checked the /etc/init.d/snort file?  There's some configuration
and directory information in there as well.

Subject: [Snort-users] Fatal Error, Quitting..

For some reason my snort install is blowing up loading rules file with
the following error: 
"ERROR: Unable to open rules file: local.rules or /etc/snort/local.rules

Fatal Error, Quitting.."
The problem here that it's trying to load the rules from /etc/snort/ and
it's not there, since rules are located in /etc/snort/rules/ directory.
I have checked my snort.conf file and for the life of me cannot see
where it's getting /etc/snort/ from! 
Is there any other place where snort will get it's configuration, even
when I run like this: snort -c /etc/snort/snort.conf ? Is there some
other config location that I'm missing?
