Yes, I have seen that link My only hesitation in setting the symlink is
that both directories contain files and the contents are different so I'm
not sure what the outcome of setting a symlink between them would result
in. I've also looked at and
as well as a couple of forums where I found similar problems to mine with
different workarounds due to the nature and platform.

Thanks for the help. I'm wondering if I shouldn't clean up my mess and
start again using -

I thought I'd followed the directions on the redmine link carefully enough,
but I also see that there are two ruby installations on my machine - one in
msf and one in /usr. Under usr, I have a ruby and a ruby1.8 ... I'm not
sure if other packages on the system depend on ruby at this point, but it
shouldn't be too difficult (I hope) to find that out. At one point in time,
I had msf and armitage actually working on this box, but a couple of system
upgrades caused that setup to quit and I haven't revisited the problem in
several weeks due to other pressing (paid) work.

Do you know if the link at dev.metasploit contains all the necessary
instruction to get this installed and running properly?
