Snort v1_7 update available on packages

  • I saw an update to 1_7 available about 5 days ago.  I watched the forums and nothing came up about it (main snort message still says 1_7 in development).  So couriosity got me and did an update yesterday.  It installed and the package says I have 1_7 but the snort screen still says 1_6.
      Anyways, nothing changed except that I could not get updates.  It kept saying that I had to wait 15 minutes.  I tried the usual things of deinstall, reboot, reinstall but I still could not do it.  So today I tried to unset the premium rules and now I can update.  As soon as I set to premium rules all I get is the 15minute messge (not even et rules get updated).    Works, but no premium rules anymore….

    Anyone else have this problem?

    One of the developers updated the package.
    1.7 is just a minor update to fix a memory issue, I guess that broke the premium rules.

    Tester see your PM for info on premium rules.


  • Update.  It seems it was either a problem, or just a weird problem on my install.  Basically I could not do premium rules, so I just set that off.  Then a day later I reset it to premium rules and everything works like normal.
