Hi there

I've got snort-2.9.1 running under CentOS-4.8 thanks to
vincent () cojot name's  RPMs

It works fine - until I copied the working binary RPMS onto another
CentOS-4.8 box we have. On that box, when snort loads, right at the end
it crashes (well that's obvious! ;-) with

[ Number of patterns truncated to 20 bytes: 1334 ]
pcap DAQ configured to passive.
Acquiring network traffic from "eth2".

/usr/sbin/snort-plain: symbol lookup error: /usr/sbin/snort-plain:
undefined symbol: rand_open

ldd shows no missing libraries, "rsync -a devserver:/lib/ /lib" shows no
different libraries (also with /usr/lib), I ran ldconfig... I even
downgraded from libpcap1-1.1.1 to libpcap1-1.0.0 (didn't recompile?) and
it didn't make a difference.

Any ideas?
