Hey Guys,

Been pounding the pig all day and still have a few kinks to work out.

I've installed snort and pulledpork via brew on OSX.  With this groups
help, I was able to get pulledpork functioning.  Now I'm getting the
following error when trying to run snort with this command...

sudo snort -c /etc/snort/snort.conf -l /var/log/snort/


Initializing rule chains...

ERROR: /etc/snort/rules/app-detect.rules(33) Unknown ClassType:

Fatal Error, Quitting..

Any ideas on what I'm missing?

I did comment out the following (because I was getting a different error
around black lists):

# Reputation preprocessor. For more information see README.reputation
preprocessor reputation: \
#   memcap 500, \
#   priority whitelist, \
#   nested_ip inner, \
#   whitelist $WHITE_LIST_PATH/white_list.rules, \
#   blacklist $BLACK_LIST_PATH/black_list.rules

Thanks for any thoughts,
