Read the logs while you launch snort:
tail -f /var/log/messages
/etc/rc.d/init.d/snortd start (or whatever you use to run it)

The only people for me are the mad ones -- the ones who are mad to live,
mad to talk, mad to be saved, desirous of everything at the same time,
the ones who never yawn or say a commonplace thing, but burn, burn, burn
like fabulous yellow Roman candles.
                -- Jack Kerouac, "On the Road"
