The reference and classification are in the same directory where I run snort from where the snort.conf is
That is the usr/src directory
The same files are also in in usr/src/snort-
I have attempted to run from both directories and still have the error
I have also got a new error now which is: ERROR: .//usr/src/rules/rules/local.rules(0) Unable to open rules file ".//usr/src/rules/rules/local.rules": No such file or directory.

Which i suspect is i have messed up a location somewhere by mistake but cannot correct it

I have attached my snort.conf
