View Full Version : Metasploit Tab Completion

December 13th, 2006, 06:05 AM
I recently installed Metasploit and wanted to install the tab completion capability but was getting this error from this command:

perl Makefile.PL

Could not find neither libtermcap.a, libncurses.a, or libcurses.

After a very long time spent Googling, I discovered that you need to install these two packages to get the correct library files:

sudo apt-get install libreadline5-dev libncurses5-dev

I also ran into a permission error when running make install. Just be root when running make install and everything will be fine!

Hope this helps some people.
