Hi Hubert,

> FATAL ERROR: OpenLogFile() => mkdir(/var/log/snort/ log directory: Too many links 

check your path, sounds like there is a symbolic link included which
causes a loop.

Maybe you tried to link /var/log/snort to something else but made
a mistake like

 snort -> snort

in /var/log instead of a directory it is poiting to itself which
causes an endless loop in order to find the end point.

Best regards
