Snort integration. Newer versions, I believe, combine all interfaces (eth0, eth1, etc.) into one interface (mon0) and I was trying to add it to the monitor interface. When I try to add it to that interface and start Snort, it dies due to encapsulation. The alternative is to use Kismet pcaps, which works, but not as effective.
