I was running 2.0.0 that I had upgraded to 2.2 rc1 and Debian Woody and 
could not get 2.2 rc1 to work.  So, I removed the /etc/snort dir and 
reinstalled 2.2 rc1. 

I ran
    make install

Then copied the etc dir to /etc/snort/etc and the rules dir to 

I am testing using it with
/usr/local/bin/snort -c /etc/snort/etc/snort.conf -T
and I get
/etc/snort/etc/snort.conf(506) Unable to create an IPSet from [HOME_NET]

At line 506 is
include classification.config

The files classification.config is in the /etc/snort and the 
/etc/snort/etc dir's.  So, what am I missing?
