if you git clone, you'll need to also setup a full development env which I don't you want to do right now, just stick
w/the installer for now. You're already good to go.

Well, ok, now I'm confused:
If I go to the standard metasploit download site ww.metasploit.com/download and follow the instructions here:
https://community.rapid7.com/docs/DOC-1776 which shows an example install process using the same name as the file I
Notice the word "community" in the URL which leads me to believe this should be the community branch, and follow the
instructions here, I am left with a directory entitled metasploit-4.5.0, that contains a file called msfpro -- so why
am I getting the msfpro version from a comminty download link? As well, the directory that is created does not
contain the usual files such as msfconsole, msfpudate,etc.
Okay, so I run the mspro file for the first time and get a long, long printout of lines that say:
NOTICE: CREATE TABLE /PRIMARY KEY will create implicit sequence . . . .
Then finally an msfconsole prompt.
I'm simply trying to get the latest community version of metasploit -- why can't I easily find a suitable link for
the "community" version anywhere?

Chip, is this the first time this machine has been updated in a while? The updater was changed to use git, and
maybe if you didn't get an updated msfupdate, it could be jacked up, however I don't think they shutdown the svn
server yet so... someone else on here will know. You could try updating svn, apt-get update && apt-get install
svn I think, if it's out of date. Just spitballin tho.

I'm receiving the following error message when I attempt to do an msfupdate of metasploit v4.5.0-release
[core:4.5 api:1.0] on a backtrack 5 r3 machine:
./msfupdate:156:in '<main>': Cannot determine checkout type: '.' (RuntimeError)
Any hints on why this may be happening or how to correct?
