gpx at ...12486...

I made a first test using snort. But I can't get log message the special
Here is my snort.conf:
output alert_fast: /home/snort/fst.log
log tcp any any -> any 80 (flags:S;)
I just want to put the "alert_fast" message to the file
/home/snort/fst.log, but I will get an error if I run this command:
snort -c snort.conf -d
the err messages as below:
Running in IDS mode
Log directory = /var/log/snort
[!] ERROR: Can not get write access to logging directory
(directory doesn't exist or permissions are set incorrectly
or it is not a directory at all)
Fatal Error, Quitting..
When I run this command:
snort -c snort.conf -dl /home/snort/
then all output message will be recorded in IP hierarchy in /home/snort
I m wandering how to log the output message to a /home/snort/fst.log
Can any senior one give me a directive?
Thanks very very much!
