Hi all,
I am runnning snort on a fedora box and i started with a doubt that it is not logging all the packets.
I checked it with tcp dump and when i stop tcpdump i see 90% of the packets being dropped by the kernel.
When i see /var/log/messages 
i see the below error for both sniffing interfaces
OpenPcap() device eth0 network lookup:  ^Ieth0: no IPv4 address assigned
I checked the version of libpcap running it is
 " libpcap-0.8.3-3 "
Output of # uname -a  
Linux localhost.localdomain 2.6.5-1.358smp #1 SMP Sat May 8 09:25:36 EDT 2004 i686 i686 i386 GNU/Linux
If anybody could help me on this i would really appreciate it.
thanks all,
