[Snort-users] Problems installing Barnyard

I am running mysql 4.x.

I changed the configure script so that it will not exit if that test fails.
I was then able to complete the install and everything is working fine.

	What version of mysql you're running?
	If you're using 4.x you'll also need to install the 3.23.x headers
