I haven't found much via the searches…but is/are there plans for a 64bit build of Snort for pfsense? I'm toying around with the 2.0beta4 64bit build of pfsense and it's lightning quick...and noticed that one of the features missing is Snort.
ps - sorry for the noob-ness.
It should be up now, I believe. We didn't have all the packages compiled for 64-bit yet, but they should be there now. Some automation was added to the packages system where they should be compiled and updated regularly now.
I'm not sure if the snort package maintainer has access to a 64-bit machine to test though, so it's possible it may install but not work correctly at first.
Thanks! I'll give it a shot this week :)
Building this file tonight or in the morning.
