Thanks Joel,

I used PulledPork but it didn't get any of the *.rules files that are in 
the tar.gz file. I manually added them in then ran PP again out of which 
I got:

Reading rules...

Setting Flowbit State....
         Enabled 23 flowbits
         Enabled 1 flowbits
Writing /etc/snort/rules/snort.rules....

Rule Stats....
         Enabled Rules:----16879
         Dropped Rules:----0
         Disabled Rules:---14849
         Total Rules:------31728

I still get the flow bit errors as PP from above only enabled 24.

In the log file I noticed that I got a bunch of "unkown message" entries 
so I don't know if that's got anything to do with it?

Using the -k none option as suggested previously I don't get any more 
'Bad chck sum' errors but I still don't get anything logged either?

Previously when I used version 2.8.6 with the Emerging Threats ruleset 
even when run for a few seconds Base would just spike with occurrences, 
mainly for p2p icmp packets.

Basically it's still not working :-(
