Re: installing snort
So you are saying you have installed the snort-rules-default package
but the /etc/snort/rules/ directory remains missing? Doing something
manually could cause dpkg to not write the config files (although I
have typically only seen this when you delete a config file installed
by a package and then attempt to reinstall).
If this is the case reinstall snort-rules-default with `aptitude -o
DPkg::Options::="--force-confmiss" reinstall snort-rules-default`. You
can view what config files should be present with `dpkg -L
