Hi all

At the time of install i installed snort for user anagha.
If i run snort as root then snort starts packet processing but if i try to
run snort other than root [as anagh]i get following error

I tried to start barnyard when* snort is running with root* but i
configured databases access for specific user[I set this user for snort
already] for barnyard  i am getting error for barnyard when i run snort as
