Hello all. I've just installed snort, and it won't start..
thought maybe it somehow need tcpdump. so installed tcpdump and also get error like:
tcpdump: socket: Address family not supported by protocol
I wonder where from that error comes from. I've searched a google and linuxquestions.org (search) but came out with no reasonable sollution.
after running lspci -v -v -v i showed me :
at the beginning:

Maybe someone here has a sollution for that ?
Or it is not hardware problem?
I'm curently running linux kernel 2.6.7
Btw, this lan card works.
