It seems just a problem of dependencies, if you are sure you have
all the libraries you need for running snort you just use the
--nodeps option in rpm so it forces the dependencies problem.

The only people for me are the mad ones -- the ones who are mad to live,
mad to talk, mad to be saved, desirous of everything at the same time,
the ones who never yawn or say a commonplace thing, but burn, burn, burn
like fabulous yellow Roman candles.
