    Starting from terminal works for me whether or not X Server is running. It does not run when you use the GUI to launch the MSF console.

    Hi, I was trying many things but only works if I start the msfconsole in terminal running with "./" before the msfconsole in other words:

    root@bt: ./msfconsole

    I think this is an issue with a relative path somewhere in Metasploit. If you have completed the fix on
    And you still get this:

    msf auxiliary(ipidseq) > use auxiliary/scanner/ip/ipidseq
    msf auxiliary(ipidseq) > set RHOSTS
    RHOSTS =>
    msf auxiliary(ipidseq) > exploit
    [*] The Pcaprub module is not available: no such file to load -- pcaprub

    Starting it from the base directory /usr/local/bin seems to be what causes the problem.

    Try this:
    root@bt:/pentest/exploits/framework3# ./msfconsole
    msf auxiliary(ipidseq) > exploit
    [*]'s IPID sequence class: Incremental![*] Scanned 1 of 1 hosts (100% complete)[*] Auxiliary module execution completed
    msf auxiliary(ipidseq) > Interrupt: use the 'exit' command to qui
    If you look at which msfconsole is run by default from the path setting it will be this one:
    root@bt:/pentest/exploits/framework3# which msfconsole
    This is just a link to the one in the /pentest/exploits/framework3 directory but will start it with a different base directory and the external directory is not there when it looks for a relative path to it's base directory.
