Greetings, I've successfully complied and installed snort and
dag 2.0 tarballs. However, the above startup error message persist
whether user is privileged and unprivileged. While searching for an
answer I found and applied patch:

Is this a kernel problem or am I missing something?
Another question while I'm here, how to I build so-rules?

Thanks in advance
