Failing for myself using Paru.

DAQ_Msg_h does not name a type

and DAQ_PKT_FLAG_SIGNIFICANT_GROUPS was not declared in this scope.

Is this an issue with the PKGBUILD?

Just testing snort and get the following errors:

ERROR: file_magic.rules:14 can't compile content ''
ERROR: /etc/snort/rules/snort.rules:105 can't compile content ''

I'm new to snort and I'm not sure what the issue is. I can't find anything helpful in the www so I thought it might be related to the package here?

@robertfoster - you have some omissions in your PKGBUILD. The rules are broken and homenet.lua does not get read. Please see how amish is doing it in the snort-nfqueue package.

amish commented on 2022-12-05 12:03 (UTC)

@graysky - Extremely sorry. I mixed up with a snort package (snort-nfqueue) that I maintain with this package which you are using (snort without nfqueue).

This snort package took over lots of PKGBUILD config from snort-nfqueue, but it seems it was partly picked up.

The package maintainer here seems to have removed the "sed" commands which adds support for homenet.lua.

If you want then you may have a look at snort-nfqueue AUR package.

Here is what I get on a freshly built package in /etc/snort/snort.lua under section 1

-- HOME_NET and EXTERNAL_NET must be set now
-- setup the network addresses you are protecting
HOME_NET = 'any'

-- set up the external network addresses.
-- (leave as "any" in most situations)

include 'snort_defaults.lua'

No reference to /etc/snort/homenet.lua and both variables are not commented out.

amish commented on 2022-12-05 04:21 (UTC)

@graysky. Its not default, the lines (which you think are default) are commented lines and include statement is placed there instead, which actually defines those variables.
