Currently I'm running 1.6.2 on a mac68k, uname -a gives me:
NetBSD centris 1.6.2 NetBSD 1.6.2 (GENERIC) #0: Tue Feb 10 22:45:47 UTC
with some more from dmesg | grep 68 gives:
Apple Macintosh Centris 610 (68040)
fpu0 at mainbus0 (mc68040)
I checked last night and the latest version of snort for either 1.6.2
that was on the package list for mac68k is still 2.0.2 (nothing there
yet for 2.0). I built a cross compiler on my debian machine for my
netbsd system on my centris, but only have tested it on really small
stuff. I might try it out on a more recent version of snort (though I
suspect that may involve library dependencies which will probably kill
I picked tech-security because that was the only list that had any
relevant history when I searched for snort in the archives.
