If we provide the src, you can compile them on your own.  The pre-compiled ones are without src, and contain a ton of detection not available anywhere else (zero-days that only we have protection for, etc).

Thanks for your reply, I'll take a look at pulledpork.
Can you tell me if the .so files are actually the same and the size difference is just down to compilation differences? Or do the precompiled and src .so files essentially contain different 'stuff'?

You should use pulledpork to manage your ruleset, it will take care of which version you need, according to the operating system you are using or the one you specify.

Hello

I've compiled the so_rules from the src folder but see there are
precompiled so_rules with the same name, but some of them have vastly
different file sizes.  There are also precompiled .so files which aren't in
the src folder once compiled and vice versa.

Does anyone know which .so files to use?  For example there is a
file-flash.so in the precompiled folder and the src folder, which should I
use?

Many thanks
