[Snort-users] problem when: ./configure --with-mysql

Well it seems to me that if you wish snort to log to a mysql DB then you need to use the --with-mysql flag. Perhaps you need to point the above flag to the proper location if your sql client is not installed in /usr/local/mysql. 
Perhaps you need to install the entire database engine even though its only purpose may be to get snort compiled correctly.

so what to do?

or remove the sql-client rpm packge which I installed and install from the source files?

	It appears to be looking for mysql to be installed in /usr/local/mysql which is a default install location for mysql.
	Check out the installation documents offered on the snort web page the docs step you through the entire installation.
	If you are using a different server for the DB you just need to adjust the output line in the snort.conf file to point to that server instead of localhost.
