I've googled to no avail. 
I am wondering if you guys can help. 
I have the latest snort installed 2.1.3 from snort.org. I commpiled and 
I have the rules installed under /usr/local/etc/snort/rules. 
I have /usr/local/etc/snort/snort.conf configured. 
I start snort: 
/usr/local/bin/snort -dev -i eth1 -c /usr/local/etc/snort/snort.conf 
Sbort starts up fine, but when I send it a code red http request: 
All I get are: 
Rule application order: ->activation->dynamic->alert->pass->log 
        --== Initialization Complete ==--
