Snort init script still not working...

Posted 06-04-2007 at 10:42 AM by unixfool

For some reason, it'll start fine, will not shut down cleanly and will error out. The script will not start on its own and requires manual intervention (dunno why). I'll have to add some debugging code to it so that I can track the issue.

The OpenBSD script works solidly.

The Slackware script works sporadically and I've no idea how to debug it (although I haven't tried 'strace' yet). It appears to work manually every time, but when run as a cron job, it's sometimes, seemingly randomly, doesn't restart. The cron job runs every hours but because it sometimes doesn't start,...
