Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

Truth is I cannot see it running on any eth. Set up as usual and took the defaults from 'apt-get install' then went to change the looked at connection in 'snort.debian.conf' from eth0 to eth1 for the wifi. Ran 'pgrep -lf snort | grep eth0 (or eth1) and got nothing. Much has changed in this iteration of Mint, just wondered if I have to do some major config of snort.conf.
That's a lot of packages and a lot of different setups. I did wonder if anyone had had the same problem on Mint17, much has changed. Snort seemed to work ok almost 'out of the box' before. Sure it is a small config problem??
# snort.debian.config (Debian Snort configuration file)
# This file was generated by the post-installation script of the snort
# package using values from the debconf database.
# It is used for options that are changed by Debian to leave
# the original configuration files untouched.
# This file is automatically updated on upgrades of the snort package
# *only* if it has not been modified since the last upgrade of that package.
# If you have edited this file but would like it to be automatically updated
# again, run the following command as root:
# dpkg-reconfigure snort
Not sure why snort can't start at boot, unless home net should be /24.
As you can clearly see from the output "/etc/snort/snort.debian.conf" is NOT a valid Snort configuration file.
It has something to do with whatever it is Debian does specifically to start the application.
So first properly configure "/etc/snort/snort.conf".
Then post contents of /tmp/snort.out and /etc/snort/snort.conf.
I'm sorry, but what exactly did you try to configure and what exactly should have been the result of that? *Do realize that while you're at the keyboard I have to work with what nfo you provide. So until you provide details, be it actual commands,
