Hi

Thanks in advance to anyone who helps on this. I'll gladly provide any data
that can be used to debug this. Other Ossim (free) users are having similar
issues.

I'm trying to get Snort working in the current Ossim distribution on Debian
linux.
Version 2.9.2.2 IPv6 GRE (Build 121)
installed within a VM in VirtualBox

The external issue is that no data is produced, as exhibited by empty logs
in /var/log/snort.
It appears that a library is incorrect or not loading properly.

Starting snort produces the following
prompt /etc/init.d#   /etc/init.d/snort_eth0 start
Starting Network Intrusion Detection System : snort_eth0 (eth0 using
/etc/snort/snort.eth0.conf/usr/lib/preloadable_libintl.so: dlsym:
/usr/lib/preloadable_libintl.so: undefined symbol: DAQ_MODULE_DATA
/usr/lib/libgettextpo.so: dlsym: /usr/lib/libgettextpo.so: undefined
symbol: DAQ_MODULE_DATA
/usr/lib/libcrypt.so: dlsym: /usr/lib/libcrypt.so: undefined symbol:
DAQ_MODULE_DATA
/usr/lib/libanl.so: dlsym: /usr/lib/libanl.so: undefined symbol:
DAQ_MODULE_DATA
...
etc....long list of undefined symbols
Available DAQ modules:
pfring(v1): live inline multi unpriv
pcap(v3): readback live multi unpriv
ipfw(v2): live inline multi unpriv
dump(v1): readback live inline multi unpriv
