My guess is that snort tries to connect to mysql before mysql service
is fuly loaded and fails.  Make sure that Snort is started after MySQL
is up and running.

install on debian
To: snort-users at lists.sourceforge.net

I have installed the Sarge install of Debian on my local linux box and
have narrowed down my earlier problem with two NICs.  Now when I start
snort it ends and tells me to check /var/log/daemon.log.  I see snort
starting and ending and this is what shows:

Snort: database: mysql_error: Can't connect to local MySQL server
through socket '/var/run/mysql/mysqld.sock' (111) SQL=UPDAATE senson
SET last_cid = - WHERE sid = 1

This is when I first boot up the machine.  Once the machine is up and
running I can connect to mysql, through mysql –u snort –p and it works
fine.  Any help would be greatly appreciated.
