Hi Shawn,
 
I followed two setup guides to install Snort by using "sudo apt-get install snort-mysql" : 
1.) https://wwwx.cs.unc.edu/~hays/archives/2010/03/entry_23.php      The Snort version was 2.8.4.1 on Ubundu 9.1, 
Snort&BASE worked fine, this was my first Snort experience.
2.) http://it.thelibrarie.com/weblog/2010/06/installing-snort-on-ubuntu-10-04/   The Snort version was 2.8.x.x (?) on 
Ububdu 10.Barnyard2 failed to initialize, please see the following:
–== Initializing Barnyard2 ==–
Initializing Input Plugins!
Initializing Output Plugins!
Parsing config file “/etc/snort/barnyard2.conf”
ERROR: /etc/snort/barnyard2.conf(310) Undefined variable name: 12.
Fatal Error, Quitting..
 
barnyard2 still failed despite the fact I took the suggestions from others.  Then I moved on and tried the Snort Report 
1.3.1 on Snort 2.8.6.0 and 2.9.0.0, they are working okey except the slowness of loading data into a browser. These two 
Snort IDS boxes are running in my company's live network at moment after some fine tuning via snort.conf, 
emerging.conf, threshold.conf and individual rule.
 
My qustions would be:
 
1.) Do I have to install Snort via "sudo apt-get install snort-mysql" in order to make BASE work?    
2.) Do I get the newest verstion (e.g. 2.9.0.3, etc) of Snort via  "sudo apt-get install snort-mysql" ?
 
Any information and help would be much appreciated.
 
Thanks
 
Regards
 
John

Hmm, I just did that very thing.  What problems are you having?

Hi Randy,
 
It's a good news, I would love to try BASE again.
 
I am using Ubundu10.04 at moment, do you have any guide for Ubundu10.04?
 
I would like to set up Snort 2.9.0.2/ barnyard2 /base 1.4.5 on Ubundu 10.04.
 
Many thanks in advance
 
Regards
 
John

Hi Joe,

I am using Snort 2.8.6&2.9.0/barnyard2/Snort report 1.3.0, they are okay
but they are very slow to load the data into the browser.

I used Snort 2.8.5.3/ barnyard2 / base 1.4.5 before by
following https://wwwx.cs.unc.edu/~hays/archives/2010/03/entry_23.php, I
loved BASE as it's much fast than Snort Report.

I just wonder if you have some setup instruction/guide I can follow to
setup Snort 2.9.0.2 / barnyard2 / base 1.4.5.

Any information and help would be much appreciated.

I'm actually one of the BASE developers (though it is mid-transition to
a new lead and a newer version at some point, so you won't see much
action right now) and I help on Barnyard2.

I also do a lot of guides. What platform/OS are you looking for help on?
I think you mentioned RHEL - what version? I'm currently working on a
RHEL 6.0 guide for x86_64 that should be ready later this week.

Thanks,
Randy
