Snort install fails

  • Not sure if this is Snort or a ofSense 2 problem - so sorry if in wrong forum

    Running latest - i.e. current - version of pfSense - full version running squid, squidguard tried to install snort and it failed as below.

    I suspect something change in the snapshot lately since it just happen in the couple of last snapshot.

  • Just finished recovering from updating to the latest snapshot about an hour ago.

    Squid failed, squidguard failed, ipsec failed - many depenedencies failed

    Gone back to 20101116-1840 may not run snort but at least iw runs everything else we need



  • i tried to install snort in 1.2.3 but i got path error and compress_depth and binary errors etc.i fixed a few errors but after a while i gave up, and changed to 2.0 beta now i got snort_check_cron_misc.php error : /

    What to do?

    edit: if someone have other ids as suggestions i will be open to try a few of them. but all configuration most be over webgui interface.

  • yes, it work in the latest version:
    pfSense 2.0-BETA4 (i386) built on Sun Nov 21 02:37:38 EST 2010
