I was just testing out some changes to my autosnort script and documenting
the install process and noticed that barnyard2 behaves a little bit

It use to be that you could specify a directive via command line and via the
config file and the command line argument would win. Now it seems that if
you specify an argument in both places, BY2 just refuses to run. It throws a
fatal error stating that the argument cannot be specified in the config file
and on the command line.

I took a look at the readme/changelog available via github, didn't really

matters anymore; I just removed the offending options from the command line
and am about to commit the changes to the scripts regardless -- merely

Hi Tony,

Can you be more specific about which version you are using and which
argument you are trying to run
and what output you get and mabey its will be possible to
assist/explain you further what is happening.

Thank you.
