    I noticed this as well, it seems like there has been a solid push for MSF to GitHub, in consideration, I followed the tutorial Carlos Perez wrote for Ubuntu 12.04. Only had a few issues, but now am running the GitHub version of Metasploit in Samurai.

      The Metasploit Framework GitHub repository is primarily for developers
      and has a very manual process for getting MSF running correctly.
      Rapid7 is pushing their installer as the only supported method of
      using the Metasploit. The Framework installer is available at the
      bottom of this page below the Pro and Community versions.
      http://www.rapid7.com/products/metasploit/download.jsp

      I've tested the MSF installer and it works great under Samurai WTF.
      Everything seems to installed and operational. It does include the web
      GUI if you want to use the Community Edition (requires a free key &
      registration) but msfconsole and all the other tools are there for us
      purists.

      I recommend not installing it as a service so that it's not running in
      the background unnecessarily. Whenever you want use it, just run
      "service metasploit start" to start up the Postgres and other
      background processes it needs, then msfconsole. The Metasploit menu
      item works once installed, but the GUI doesn't as msfgui has been
      deprecated. That menu item could link to the web console.

      Kali also have .debs available here that may work instead of using the
      official installer but I haven't tested them.

      BTW, this is the official guide to setting up the MSF dev environment.

    Thanks for the tidbit on the MSF being for developers John, I was confused on the difference!

      One advantage of going the GitHub route is updates are quick and easy
      via msfupdate (git). With the Metasploit Framework installer, it
      requires registration for the Community Edition. :-(

      samurai@samurai-wtf:~$ sudo msfupdate
      [*]
      [*] Attempting to update the Metasploit Framework...
      [*]

      [-] ERROR: Failed to update Metasploit installation

      [-] In order to update your Metasploit installation,
      [-] you must first register it through the UI, here:
      [-] https://localhost:3790
      [-] (Note: Metasploit Community Edition is totally
      [-] free and takes just a few seconds to register!)

      Personally, I'd prefer not having to register. I also like the ability
      to update to the latest version that's available at any given time
      without waiting for Rapid7 to push an update to Community users.

      awhitehatter, nice guide here.
