Sorry but that was a mistake (A typo).

I am deleting the preprocessors from:


Not from


I have tried deleting everything from that directory and reinstalling, still receiving the same error.

what does the following command return?

   ls -la /usr/local/lib/snort_dynamicpreprocessor

please paste all the output... hopefully you are doing this in a manner that you 
have scrollback capabilities to be able to copy'n'paste from... if not, redirect 
the above to a file and then attach the file...

   eg: ls -la /usr/local/lib/snort_dynamicpreprocessor > sdpp_listing.txt

I think wkitty is correct:

You are loading from here:
Mar 17 11:46:26 bht3hprp snort[31253]:   Loading dynamic preprocessor library 

But deleting from here:

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

I will open a bug so that ERROR goes to the correct place.
