Can you send the output surrounding the "ERROR"?  There should be more context to that.

Thanks
Russ

I deleted the preprocessor directory as suggested.

rm -rf /usr/local/lib/snort/_dynamicpreprocessor/*

I reinstalled and the directory is not repopulated, but I am receiving the same error.

Thanks in advance for your help!

Can you please tell me exactly how to do this?  I found an old article that suggested the same thing but I am unsure of 
exactly how this is done.

Looks like you may need to clean out your old preprocessors, (2.9.5.5) and replace them 2.9.6.0.

        I recently updated my snort from 2.9.5.5 to 2.9.6.0 and now I am receiving a rather cryptic error message.

        snortERROR size 840 != 864

        Can anyone point me to what may cause this?  Any additional information needed please let me know.

        Thanks in advance.
