snort problem


I'm not sure if this is the right list but i try. Problem is with snort,
when i try to start it, then i get to daemon.log following lines:

Feb 20 10:54:17 equinoxe modprobe: modprobe: Can't locate module net-pf-17
Feb 20 10:54:17 equinoxe snort: ERROR: OpenPcap() device eth0 open:
^Isocket: Socket type not supported

Firstly, what is net-pf-17? I couldn't find it anywhere (grepped thru
kernel source). And why it says that socket type not supported? I
installed all required packages for it - libc6_2.2.1 and libpcap0. What
couls possibly be wrong?

Thanks in advance,
