Snort pkg v. 2.2.4: Barnyard2 starting/stopping issues

  • My Box:
    2.1-BETA0 (i386)
    built on Tue Jul 3 17:55:18 EDT 2012
    FreeBSD 8.3-RELEASE-p3

    Notice a few issues with how barnyard2 stop/starts

    Doesn't start on reboot
    Doesn't start when you start snort via services (but if barnyard2 is running and select stop, it will stop barnyard2)
    Able to start within the Snort GUI but it shows that its not running
    Doesn't stop when you stop Snort via Snort's GUI, if you start snort again; another instance of barnyard2 will start

    PS Show file running as /usr/local/bin/barnyard2
    PSS Noticed when start snort via its GUI, it uses path /usr/local/bin/snort then /usr/pbi/snort-i386/bin/snort
    PSSS PHP on startup [08-Jul-2012 00:46:34 UTC] PHP Deprecated:  Function split() is deprecated in /usr/local/pkg/snort/ on line 1501

  • AMD64 version has the same issues.

  • Oh the PBI one i have to ask on this since snort uses hardcoded paths inside.
