-T just tests the snort.conf.

For the next test, don't run snort off of init (that's odd that it
doesn't log anything to syslog) and run it in the foreground and see
what's failing) but run it locally:

snort -c /etc/snort/snort.conf -i eth_whatever

See what it says, see if you get too
"Commencing packet processing (pid=????)"

Once you get there, let it run for a bit then cntrl-c to break it,
look at the info presented.
