Centos not taking me to CLI, snort runs at startup

Hi there,

After I made snort to start at the startup, centos is not talking me to the CLI and it stuck on the loading line. When I hit ESC is see snort has finished loading and showing the process number.

any idea ? what should I do ?

you mean the centos doesn't load at all, it hangs while loading snort?
you can't access the terminal window?
