Snort won't start on 2.0

I installed Snort today and am having issues getting Snort to run. I bought the $29.99 ruleset and updated Snort.
However, I can not get Snort to start. I click on the green triangle but nothing happens. Any help would be appreciated.

What does your system log tab show?

Go to updates and update the databases.
Then go to global settings and select some categories/rules.
Then try turning it on again.

Any chance you have RC2 of pfSense 2.0?

I've had the same problem on my boxes since the build from the 18th I think. System log shows
snort: FATAL ERROR: /usr/local/etc/snort/snort_37799_bce0/snort.conf(327) Unknown output plugin: "alert_pf"
It worked fine until I went and changed some rules. Removing that alert from the config file obviously clears the error but it still wont start although the logs indicate it has.
Yes I have reinstalled and done a clean build but the issue persists.

Same here. Since 18th snort refuses to start. I found lots of errors regarding the config-file, but after changing the offending entries, still doesn'T start. But at console it starts and then shows as started in the webgui.
When i try to start (restart) snort via Webgui, still refuses to start. I have it disabled at the moment. :(
