[Snort-users] installation problems

The RPM's on the snort.org site are not working with FC2.  In the FC2
install doc there is a link to the yum repository the RPM maintainers
run, you can get the RPM's that work from that link.

If you use packages, then you should just use packages.

If you compile one thing from source, you may get errors when trying to 
install packages later on.

I will assume you compiled libpcap-0.8.3 from source.
That Snort package is looking for that particular version of libpcap, 
therefore you would need the libpcap-0.6.2 package to be installed.

Check out the docs at http://www.snort.org most notably Patrick Harper's

HOW-To Guides.
