I have a debian box with snort installed. Before updating today, i
have problems to start snort:
There's the relevant line of the start log:

Jul  5 13:43:32 firewall snort[21411]: Initializing Network Interface eth0
Jul  5 13:43:32 firewall snort[21411]: FATAL ERROR: OpenPcap() device
eth0 open: eth0: getsockopt: Protocol not available

I've tested changing the interface to eth1, 2 or 3 without another result.
Can someone help me with this problem?
