    Sure enough, there is no mysql-client-5.1.68.tbz on

    Does anyone know what's happening?

    Thanks a bunch!

    Fixed now.

    As with previous snort binary upgrades, make sure you uninstall completely and then reinstall to ensure you have the correct set of files/packages.

  • thank you much!
    i've already uninstalled, manually removed the …/snort folders and reinstall...
    It's working fine WITHOUT snort (free account) rules- i have just the Emerging Threats enabled AND 'Enable Sensitive Data' preprocessor unchecked.
    I guess i'll have to wait a bit, looks like the free snort rules are not yet compatible with this release.
    Thanks again!
