Hello All,
I've installed snort 2.9.4. 5 and using rules files snortrules-snapshot-2941.tar.gz
but when i try to start snort I get the following error.

ERROR: /etc/snort/rules/blacklist.rules(2) Unknown ClassType: misc-activity
Fatal Error, Quitting..

How can I fix this.

check that your classification.config is the latest one... you can find the 
location of this file by its include line in yor snort.conf file... it is 
generally found at the end of the section above your rules inclusion section...
