did you compile it (./configure && make && make install) or install the package ( snort-whatever.tgz)? if you installed the package do this: as root removepkg _packagename_ if you compiled it you probably learned you lesson like i did. when you compile use checkinstall or some package maker. It make removal really easy.

try:
Code:
make uninstall
But better try to learn how to pack your programs. It's really easy.

if you simply did a ./configure && make && make install

snort will create just 2 files:
/usr/local/bin/snort
/usr/local/man/man8/snort.8

remove them manually and next time pack it.
Anyway the installation is not complete since you haven't copied the rules, the configuration files, etc.
So you cannot use it as an IDS but only as a packet sniffer. If you wan't scripts to make a snort package for slackware let me know. I've dedicated more than 2 month for snort and base this year.

I've made a guide on how to install snort and base on a slackware 10.1
To bad it's in Greek. Didn't have the chance to translate it. Maybe I'll have the time this summer.

The snort scripts are for 2.3.2. The current version is 2.3.3 but they should work, as long as you change the version number in snort.Slackbuild. No major changes have been introduced in 2.3.3. The big step will be snort 2.4 since they'll include prelude IDS, another open source IDS (a hybrid one not a NIDS like snort).

Send me a mail and I'll mail them to you.

Well I thought of this but Greek is a complicated language a lot more complicated than English and according to my experience all the auto translation utilities screw things up. But I've heard good words about the Google Translation tool (I thought it was under development and would use the official UN translated documents to match the words/sentences). SO i'll send it to you.

I translated your document from greek to english with babelFish Altivista. Most of it tranlsated ok I think, except for some words which end up just a string of letters. But I think it is readable to use, I didnt get a chance to read all the way through it yet but I am going to do that today and see how well the translator worked.

Thanks for the files

I think the instructions I sent with the files are fine to compile and pack snort and make it run with mysql. SO, there 's no need to try the document. If things get well, I can send you a second part of instructions for base.

P.S. Since this is a public forum, I don't know if it's right to keep on posting for something that many users can't follow. We can keep on doing this through e-mail.
