Installing metasploit + nexpose on ubuntu 10.04

Is not that fun anymore, the db isn’t autocreated as it once was, so a bit of fiddeling is needed..
Needless to say, you can get it working.
Check out http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=1069859 for getting metasploit running again as it should.

Running it is described here:

Good Auditing!
