Description

After enabling Snort it fails to start or crashes shortly after logging:

19 11:32:43 kernel pid 17377 (snort), jid 0, uid 0: exited on signal 10

This is a separate issue from PHP exiting with signal 11 which is covered by #11466 and for which a patch is available.

This is caused by compiler optimisations resulting in memory misalignment see:

I've confirmed this behavior on an SG-3100 on 21.05.1 once we fixed the Signal 11 issue in the above-linked redmine. This issue doesn't appear to be relevant to suricata.

This should be fixed now as https://cgit.freebsd.org/ports/commit/?id=c2a4ab17ef5e44424f2b2e97e30a2fde437dcd8a hit upstream. I see it in local tree as 1af513f63319a2c61c5b83c70e27d1acbbdb5d41

This appears to be fixed. I've been running it for several days now and previously it would not run for longer than a few seconds.

Tested:
