I've had the same error. It's caused by not having a database configured for snort.

Here is a howto to guide you in getting the database configured:

hi, ... snort was already installed by harden, harden nids, etc from the synaptic and none of the database are configured, right, but now by following these instructions i found that i can't overcome this problem: apt-get install acidbase, because it can not find this acidbase (?)

it looks to me that the whole think is to complicated; do i have to remove harden first? thanks.
