    I am trying out the http://howtoforge.com/intrusion_detection_base_snort howto. Every thing went well until i ran across this error. Whats going wrong. When i configured it i had the --enable-dynamicplugin option on. I don't see why i am getting this. Thanks

    ok i have read every thing there and nothing has helped. I tryed snort uninstall in the /root/snorttemp/snort-2.6.0.2 or what ever directory then i reconfigured it then make all then make check then make install and snort -c /etc/snort/snort.conf and i still got the same error message. Althrouth one time during one of the uninstall and reinstall i did get snort to run when i tyed snort but when i ran snort -c /etc/snort/snort.conf i got the same error. What nexted?

    Yes i listed all the things i have tryed so far and i belive that i did them all. I would like to reinstall it and try again but when i use the ./uninstall or snort uninstall the directory /etc/snort still contains file so i would belive that the other directorys would also contain files.
