I'm trying to update an existing version of snort on Centos 6.5. I was disappointed to see that Snort no longer provides RPM's for Centos 6 so I rpmbuilt my own from the src.rpm files.

That daq built ok but the snort still insisted on looking for the old libdnet v 1.11 so I decided to compile from source using snort- .

I did a yum update on the daq and that seems ok. But when I did a ./configure -enable-sourcefire as suggested in the setup guide (https://www.snort.org/documents/4) I got the error:

checking for daq_dp_add_dc... yes
checking for struct _DAQ_DP_key_t.sa.src_ip4... no

   ERROR!  daq library missing C99 patch, upgrade to >=2.0.4, go get it from

>From a clean install on a virtualbox using the same daq rpm snort compiles fine. Could t be a problem that the daq RPM can't do a clean update on an existing system?
