I just installed the latest snort
When I run snort -T everything is run
but when I start snort either manually or from a dameon, it looks like
it starts but if I check /var/logs/messages I see
FATAL ERROR: OpenAlertFile() => fopen() alert file
/var/log/snort/alert: Permission denied
That file is
drwxr-xr-x 2 snort snort 4096 Apr 27 09:38 .
drwxr-xr-x 10 root root 4096 Apr 26 16:10 ..
-rw------- 1 root root 0 Apr 27 09:38 alert
which is the same as my local snort install wich is working.
