that's the output from the startup script... we need to see the /snort/ output... you should find it in your logs... if you are running on *nix, you should find it in your /var/log/messages file there may be several hundred lines... we only need to see maybe the last 20 of the snort related entries... 
the following might be helpful...

   grep -iE "snort\[" /var/log/messages | tail -n 20
