[Snort-users] SNORT not saving pcap file

I'm running snort on CentOS 6.3 capturing traffic via Endace DAG card. I want to save to a file (pcap format) the traffic that it sees. I know in snort.conf there are some settings, but it does not appears to save the file. When ever I use the snort.conf, it is not saved.

The settings are:
config logdir: /data/snortlog

# pcap
output log_tcpdump: tcpdump.log

The command I'm using to start snort:

./snort -d -b -i dag0:0 -c /etc/snort/snort.conf

If I use this, I get a file that tcpdump can read, but no detail packet info.

./snort -d -b -i dag0:0 -l /data/snortlog -L tcpdump.log

Attached is the snort.conf.

Any suggestions? What am I doing wrong?
