If its possible, stop Snort and Barnyard2, and then delete the waldo. Barnyard2 will create a new one for you.

After this line, do you get any other information in the syslog as new alerts are being written into the unified2 log? You can also enable local syslog output in Barnyard2, just to be sure that Barnyard2 setup is ok.
While Snort and Barnyard2 are running, do
ps aux | grep snort              (paste the output related to Snort)ps aux | grep barnyard2     (paste the output related to Barnyard2)
