[Snort-users] buglet in daq afpacket

Hi there

If you call snort- with the "-T" option to test the config, you
get an error with afpacket that you don't get when you don't have any
daq detail in the config.

Namely, "snort -T -c file.conf" works fine when daq isn't mentioned, but
errors with:

ERROR: Can't initialize DAQ afpacket (-1) - afpacket_daq_initialize:
Invalid interface specification: ''!

...when you call it with "config daq: afpacket"

It can be fixed by calling "-T" with an interface (eg "-i eth0"), but
that isn't needed when daq isn't mentioned...
