People, I execute snort from the command line but I get this mesage/warning:

root at ...15544...:/etc# /usr/local/snort/bin/snort -D -u snort -g snort -c
/usr/local/snort/etc/snort.conf -i eth0
Spawning daemon child...
My daemon child 1330 lives...
Parent waiting for child...
Child terminated unexpectedly (171303568)
Daemon parent exiting (0)

After that, the daemon runs ok apparently:

snort     1330  7.6 36.9 404636 129928 ?       Ssl  11:33   2:07
/usr/local/snort/bin/snort -D -u snort -g snort -c
/usr/local/snort/etc/snort.conf -i eth0

What can be the problem because of the "child terminated unexpectedly"
message ???

Thank you
