Sorry if this is a noob question...
Whenever I load up msfconsole and try to search something, a warning appears saying the "database is not connected or cache not built".
Then when I try to search for an exploit nothing happens, it just goes back to the msf > prompt.
I reinstalled metasploit three times via apt-get and the same thing happened/.
I also checked the status of the connection via db_status - it is connected (it says postgresql connected to msf3dev).
I'm running Backtrack 5 with the latest version of metasploit.
