Hi, I need Your Help!!

I have x64 fedora 14 for suricata IPS

I prepared following:
sudo yum -y install libpcap libpcap-devel libnet libnet-devel pcre \
pcre-devel gcc gcc-c++ automake autoconf libtool make libyaml \
libyaml-devel zlib zlib-devel libcap-ng libcap-ng-devel

and manually install HTP: ~~

and install netfilter library for IPS
sudo yum -y install libnfnetlink libnfnetlink-devel \
libnetfilter_queue libnetfilter_queue-devel

and download and build Suricata, enter the following:
git clone git://phalanx.openinfosecfoundation.org/oisf.git
cd oisf; ./autogen.sh; ./configure --enable-nfqueue; make; sudo make install

and make environment following:

mkdir /etc/suricata/
cp ./{*.config,*.yaml} /etc/suricata/
sudo mkdir /var/log/suricata
and download rules using oinkmaster
and edit suricata.yaml about rules, HOME_NET etc.

suricata --build-info

ok now!!

run following:
suricata -c /etc/suricata/suricata.yaml -i eth0 -q 0

But I have Following Error
[4997] 14/4/2011 -- 17:48:58 - (suricata.c:551) <Info> (main) -- This is
Suricata version 1.1beta2 (rev d9e5413)

        -l <dir>                     : default log directory

        --list-runmodes              : list supported runmodes
        --runmode <runmode_id>       : specific runmode modification the
engine should run.  The argument
                                       supplied should be the id for the
runmode obtained by running
        --engine-analysis            : print reports on analysis of
different sections in the engine and exit.
                                       Please have a look at the conf
parameter engine-analysis on what reports
                                       can be printed
        --pidfile <file>             : write pid to this file (only for
daemon mode)
        --init-errors-fatal          : enable fatal failure on signature
init error
        --dump-config                : show the running configuration
        --pcap-buffer-size           : size of the pcap buffer value from 0
- 2147483647
        --user <user>                : run suricata as this user after init
        --group <group>              : run suricata as this group after init
        --erf-in <path>              : process an ERF file

To run the engine with default configuration on interface eth0 with
signature file "signatures.rules", run the command as:

suricata -c suricata.yaml -s signatures.rules -i eth0

But without -q option It's OK(disable inline)
suricata -c /etc/suricata/suricata.yaml -i eth0

What's wrong?
Let me know please!!
