Another "snort wont install in 2.0 thread"



  • I had snort installed before.  However like everyone else the install would fail.  After some searching here on the forum i found THIS thread: http://forum.pfsense.org/index.php/topic,31058.0.html

    That worked the first time.

    I then updated last night and snort looked like it was uninstalled.  When I goto reinstall it, it fails again when it tries to fetch SQL.  I try again to enter the code in the thread I linked but it says SQL is already installed.

    I think i probably have to uninstall the SQL package and reinstall it manually again.  I am very unfamilar with the commands on how to do this.

    Any help?

    Furthermore… to help out with the cause here for 2.0 is there anything I should send out, error logs, junk like that, and who to send them to??  Sorry as my post count indicates I'm n00b!



  • i subscribed to the thread for immediate response.

    if you see errors in your logs, post them to the 2.0 board here.

    as for Snort, the maintainer apparently hasn't done much/any testing with 2.0 yet, but he should see your post here.



  • Do you know the command to remove the SQL install?



    1. Do you know which MySQL-client you need to install?
    2. If you have the version you want to uninstall, then go into a shell and use the pkg_delete command

    Reference user sws on http://forum.pfsense.org/index.php/topic,30833.0.html

    You can type this in your command line directly then initiate the package installation again from the web interface:
    pkg_add http://files.pfsense.org/packages/amd64/8/All/mysql-client-5.1.53.tbz
    This will automatically install mysql-client-5.1.53 and any of it s requirements.
    If it said that mysql-client-5.1.52 already installed then remove the mysql-client-5.1.52
    pkg_delete mysql-client-5.1.52
    and remove also what is using it then install the mysql-client-5.1.53
    then install the packages you just removed again, if it needs mysql-client-5.1.52 I think it will also function with mysql-client-5.1.53.



  • the thread i reference ealier had me install 5.1.53 so ill try that

    command: pkg_delete mysql-client5.1.53

    ill do this later when im home.  thanks.



  • Is there a way one of the developers/contributors/admins can change this in the package to cause less confusion for future users?



  • It says no such package installed when i try the commad : pkg_delete mysql-client-5.1.53

    not to be confused with the command i wrote earlier in this thread that didnt include the "-" between "client" and "5.1.53"

    Any ideas on how to uninstall this package?
