Kali Linux is using[1] the code for Armitage from this GitHub repository:

Hi, When trying to install:

curl: (22) The requested URL returned error: 403 Forbidden ==> ERROR: Failure while downloading Aborting... ==> ERROR: Makepkg was unable to build armitage.

Any clues? Thanks, and best regards, HeCSa.

I had the missing database.yml error as well. First, I ended up adding MSF_DATABASE_CONFIG={path of database file} directly before the word armitage in the shortcut. Edit: I ended up changing the /usr/bin/armitage file by removing the 'cd /opt/armitage' line and putting '/opt/armitage/' in front of 'armitage.jar $@'. Note the $@, that let's you pass the -y {path/to/database.yml} option which doesn't require the MSF_DATABASE_CONFIG var be set. (The PKGBUILD should be \$@ so it shows up.) You could also just add that instead of the "$@". I then changed my desktop shortcut in xfce to include the -y option. Gnome doesn't seem to have the issue and that shortcut works as installed.

Not work for me. Error: I can not find a database.yml file.

Turns out that, although both my user and root could start Armitage, sudo Armitage was tripping me up. gksu -w armitage solves the problem. An aside: I noticed that Menu>Help>About shows version 1.4.11. I assume that is just a lingering todo for the menu. (I am in fact running armitage 08.13.15-4)

make sure database.yml is filled out correctly in ~/.msf4 for your user if you are running as root, it needs to be in /root/.msf4 you can run msfrpcd as root and then connect armitage to it as an unprivledged user if you want root only nmap options or such edit: confirmed working on my desktop

I'm stumped. I had this working on several machines in the past. Everything in the wiki related to metasploit works. I also have the missing database.yml error (nonsense, it's there). However, in my case, it fails from the terminal too.

for a bizarre reason it runs properly through terminal, it connects to the db and everything, but if I click the armitage launch icon it says it can't find database.yml..
