In my opinion, you're probably better off building from source the things
you'll need.  They will be more up to date and easier to
replace/upgrade/tweak when the time comes, in addition to adding pfring if
you need it.  A quick down and dirty looks like this:

yum Install the normal build tools

install tcpdump/libpcap from source


yum -y install mysql-devel zlib zlib-devel pcre pcre-devel


install dnet from source

ln -s /usr/local/lib/libdnet.1 /usr/lib/
ln -s /usr/local/lib/libdnet.1 /usr/lib64/


install daq from source



install snort from source

tcpdump/libpcap - http://www.tcpdump.org/#latest-release
libdnet - http://libdnet.sourceforge.net/
snort/daq - https://www.snort.org/downloads
