yeah... now it gets a little deeper ;)

have you tried looking at the FAQ? i know there's one or two questions in there 
about not getting any logging... one of those may be to try using "-k none" 
(without the quotes) on your snort command line to turn off checksumming...

speaking of command lines, what is your snort command line?

also, you might want to stop snort, delete the snort log file in /var/logs... 
then restart it, give it a few minutes, terminate it again and post that log... 
we might spot something in there...
