Hi all,

               I compiled latest version of Snort with all the related software (daq etc.) on Solaris X86. Its running fine with no errors but is not logging anything to files. Files get created with epoch time stamp but stay at 0 bytes. Any ideas? If I run from command line, with -L option, I can log to files just fine. Snort.conf is same as it was before from ver 2.8.3, which was logging fine.

$ snort -V
