[Snort-users] OpenFPC Daemonlogger Segfault Through OpenFPC

So we run OpenFPC on CentOS (now at 6.5) and when we've had problems, a
reinstall of the package has helped.  Have you gotten any of the recentish
changes that had gotten made in the scripts?  He moved the code tree to
Google and there have been some fixes since the last zip on the old website.


the /etc/init.d/openfpc-daemonlogger command calls openfpc which runs
daemonlogger like this:

/usr/local/bin/daemonlogger -d -f /etc/snort/bpf.txt -i eth1 -l
/var/log/snort/fpc -M 75 -s 256M -p openfpc-daemonlogger-<sensor name>.pid
-P /var/run -u snort -g snort -n <sensor name>.pcap

Try that manually.. if that works, then it's a openfpc/perl/library issue.

On fedora we had to roll back perl-Filters due to some new changes that
broke the client, but it has seemed stable on our servers
