After installing per the instructions at http://www.zeroshell.net/eng/patch-details/#DA12, I receive the following:

/sbin/service: line 6: /etc/rc.d/init.d/snort: No such file or directory
/sbin/service: line 6: exec: /etc/rc.d/init.d/snort: cannot execute: No such file or directory


Snort 2.8.5 has been installed. For information see the web site
http://www.snort.org



– The file /var/register/system/snort/Interfaces contains the network
interfaces on which Snort captures the packets (default ETH00)

– The file /etc/snort.conf contains the configuration of Snort

– To restart Snort daemon use the command:

service snort restart

– To check the alerts use the Log Viewer of the web interface
in the section [snort]

There is no [snort] section of the Log Viewer, running the “service snort start” or “service snort restart” gives me the error
/sbin/service: line 6: /etc/rc.d/init.d/snort: No such file or directory
/sbin/service: line 6: exec: /etc/rc.d/init.d/snort: cannot execute: No such file or directory

I am running ZS 1.0.beta13. Where did I go wrong?

Thanks!
