Hi Jeff,

I recompiled snort 2.2.0 again with the new patch and I had no
problems. When I start Snort I get this error message in
/var/log/messages:

Sep  9 01:14:46 fwall snort: FATAL ERROR: sp_respond2: Unable to
allocate hash table memory.

I dont have a clue what could be, or if its an error that only occurs
in my system, with my current configuration. Doesnt seem to be out of
mem related since the system reported 20MB free.

[root at ...12399... etc]# cat /proc/meminfo

I'll wait for some feedback from other beta tester's.

Best Regards,
