Try adding -k none to your Snort command line and see if you get anything logged that way.

Action Stats:
    Alerts:            0 (  0.000%)
    Logged:            0 (  0.000%)
    Passed:            0 (  0.000%)

See, nothing alerted.

you might want to use PulledPork to manage your ruleset, as it looks like you have a bunch of unresolved flowbit issues.

Thanks Joel,

I used PulledPork but it didn't get any of the *.rules files that are in the tar.gz file. I manually added them in then ran PP again out of which I got:

        Dropped Rules:----0
        Disabled Rules:---14849
        Total Rules:------31728

I still get the flow bit errors as PP from above only enabled 24.

In the log file I noticed that I got a bunch of "unkown message" entries so I don't know if that's got anything to do with it?

Using the -k none option as suggested previously I don't get any more 'Bad chck sum' errors but I still don't get anything logged either?

Previously when I used version 2.8.6 with the Emerging Threats ruleset even when run for a few seconds Base would just spike with occurrences, mainly for p2p icmp packets.

Basically it's still not working :-(
