for  The test .conf file runs without error from this.

/etc/snort -A console - T -i eth1 -s -u snort -g snort -c snort.conf

however, when I remove the -T, I get this:

pcap DAQ configured to passive

snort:  symbol lookup error: snort:undefined symbol:rand_open

Any thoughts or suggestions for where to look are most appreciated.
