[Snort-users] Seg fault with latest pf_ring git

A long shot at this, but were all the pf_ring modules (driver, kernel, pfring libpcap, pfring daq) compiled and installed from the recent source? If you revert back to the stable version (apt/yum install), does it work? You can also try uninstalling then make clean and make distclean, and recompile again.

Topic says it.  Config test run:

sudo snort --daq-dir=/usr/local/lib/daq --daq pfring  -T -c


#0  0x00007ffff6b681a8 in pfring_get_card_settings () from

Not sure of my next step.
