Snort uninstalling itself pfsense 1.2.3



  • I did a fresh install of the 1.2.3 release.  I installed snort and configured it.  Everything is fine for about 1 hour.  Suddently my connection drops.  Upon login it immediate brings me to the system->packages->remove_packages menu and snorts start to uninstall.  After reinstalling snort, I thought it was some sort of glitch.  On the off chance it wasn't I decided to reinstall the 1.2.3 release while saving the configuration.

    This morning, I reinstalled pfsense and restored the configuration.  I installed snort and configured it.  I clicked the system menu again and once more it brings me to the uninstall package page with snort being removed.  The fact that it happened a 2nd time makes me believe that it was a bug of some sort.  I'm looking for anyone who has encountered the same problem.



  • My snort package is snort 2.8.4.1_5 pkg v.1.7



  • That is not good. I have not touched the snort 2.8.4.1_5 pkg v.1.7 in months.

    Hold on I'll check, I feel today is going to suck for me.

    Post so logs if you have them please.

  • Sorry, I don't have any logs when it disconnected.  I reinstalled snort right after and when I finally thought, "hey maybe I should save the logs" snort booted up and removed whatever logs were available.  (still haven't figured out how to set up a remote syslog server yet with debian)

    I'll be sure to keep the logs if or when it happens again.

    The fact that you haven't touched that package suggests to me that it isn't current.  Is there another way to get snort other than whats listed in the packages pfsense gui?



  • You could compile snort for yourself, but you will lose the IPS part.

    Im testing the old snort package and every thing seems fine.

  • It happened again.  Right after I installed DNS blacklist I went to the system menu to look at memory usage and it brought me to the install packages menu.  Basically it uninstalled and then reinstalled DNS blacklist and Snort.  So here are the logs from the period of the DNS blacklist install to the reinstallation of snort.

    Btw I'm not really hung up on fixing this.  It only seems to happen once right after I install a fresh copy of pfsense 1.2.3.  Afterwards things are functional.

    It sounds like there is a problem with your config.xml

    This likely has nothing to do with snort itself, it's reinstalling all of your packages because it thinks they don't exist or need updated.

    Because it keeps happening and isn't fixing itself, there is like an empty xml tag where one is not expected, or some other quirk.

    If you could post a sanitized (passwords and other identifying information removed) copy of your config.xml we might be able to figure out what is really going on.



  • I can confirm this I just installed snort on my alix 2d3 and then when clicking on the system main screen it brought me to the packages page and started uninstalling snort..weird



  • I can confirm I had this problem with a clean install of 1.2.3 and after rebooting the machine snort was gone, along with all my config settings when I reinstalled.  I don't know what happened, but I haven't restarted since and all is working.  I may have to reinstall, but i don't want to out of fear it will happen again.

    Tracked the problem to the old-snort.

    Seems old-snort is not uninstalling completely and is conflicting with the new install.

    Do a fresh install, sorry I didn't see this coming.
