Any help to get this installed and running greatly appreciated!
Try what vito outlined in http://forum.pfsense.org/index.php?topic=31058.0
from the console run pkg_add -r http://files.pfsense.org/packages/8/All/mysql-client-5.1.53.tbz
Then install snort
Thank you! That did the trick. However, since I already had a newer version of the mysql package, I had to rung the following command instead:
pkg_add -r -f http://files.pfsense.org/packages/8/All/mysql-client-5.1.53.tbz
Hope this will help someone else!
