I have a problem installing Snort on CentOS 6.3 in a virtual environment. When I run snort - ./snort status:

Running in packet dump mode

        --== Initializing Snort ==--
Initializing Output Plugins!
Snort BPF option: status
pcap DAQ configured to passive.
Acquiring network traffic from "eth0".
ERROR: Can't set DAQ BPF filter to 'status' (pcap_daq_set_filter: pcap_compile: syntax error)!
Fatal Error, Quitting..

Also, I am trying to use the GUI called BASE and that is also not working. I have base in my /var/www/html/base directory and the configuration is set to

 $BASE_urlpath = '/base';
