I just setup my Metasploit Framework on my Ubuntu 12.04 (LTS). Below is the note of what I have been busy with recently.

sudo gem install wirble msgpack sqlite3 pg activerecord nokogiri

Installing NMAP

mkdir ~/Development
cd ~/Development
svn co
cd nmap
sudo make install
make clean

Setting up Postgres SQL Server

sudo -s
su postgres
createuser msf -P -S -R -D
createdb -O msf msf

Installing Metasploit Framework

cd /opt
sudo svn co metasploit-framework
cd metasploit-framework
sudo bash -c 'for MSF in $(ls msf*); do ln -s /opt/metasploit-framework/$MSF /usr/local/bin/$MSF;done'
sudo ln -s /opt/metasploit-framework/armitage /usr/local/bin/armitage
cd /opt/metasploit-framework/
cat > database.yml << EOF
>   adapter: postgresql
>   database: msf
>   username: msf
>   password:
>   host:
>   port: 5432

sudo echo export MSF_DATABASE_CONFIG=/opt/metasploit-framework/database.yml >> /etc/profile
source /etc/profile

cd /opt/metasploit-framework/external/pcaprub
sudo ruby extconf.rb && sudo make && sudo make install
