Using Metasploit's db_autopwn on the Security Onion LiveCD

UPDATE: This issue has been fixed in the Security Onion LiveCD 20090731 release.

I was testing the new Security Onion LiveCD yesterday and trying to use Metasploit's db_autopwn function. The first step of db_autopwn is to create a database to hold the information about your potential targets. This is done with the db_create command. When I issued this command, I got an error about sqlite3 (the default database driver for db_autopwn).

I had forgotten to install the sqlite and libsqlite3-ruby packages. If you're having this problem, you can fix it with the following command:
sudo aptitude -y install sqlite libsqlite3-ruby

This will be fixed in the next release of the Security Onion LiveCD.
