That first error is letting you know that you shouldn't be logging directly
to a database with snort... going forward, you should be using barnyard2 to
log to a db

The other "errors" really look like informational warnings... snort's
letting you know that it's not configured as an inline sensor, so it
doesn't need to do all that normalization work that it would normally do.

They're essentially benign errors, as long as you're just trying to do IDS
and you're not trying to do inline IPS...
