problem with Snort Alert Descriptions

I have setup 2 snort servers with Base, barnyar2 and pulledpork

1 runs on Ubuntu 12.04 32bit , the other on Ubuntu 12.04 64 bit.

The actual snort config is identical between the 2 boxes

However in Base on the 32bit the alerts signature is correctly displaying the friendly description for the alert

[snort<http://www.snort.org/search/sid/1-2008597>] ET SCAN Cisco Torch SNMP Scan

But on the 64bit one any alerts triggered just show the signature id, not the more friendly description


[snort<http://www.snort.org/search/sid/129-2>] Snort Alert [129:2:1]

Im not sure the problem is linked to 32bit/64bit but it's the only difference between the way the servers were setup.
Anyone any ideas on what to look at
