Delete the waldo file - make sure whatever user snort is running as has
permissions to write to the folder and then restart barnyard2..

You will get the error "WARNING: Unable to open waldo file
'/var/log/snort/barnyard.waldo' (No such file or directory)"

Next time barnyard starts you should not get the error..
