Hello everyone, I have a fresh BT5 install and just svn updated the
metasploit framework, however even after installing the mysql and pg gems I
still receive the:
same error message:

msf > db_driver
[*] No Active Driver
[*] Available:

[*] DB Support: Enable the mysql driver with the following command:
[*] $ gem install mysql
[*] This gem requires mysqlclient headers, which can be installed on
Ubuntu with:
[*] $ sudo apt-get install libmysqlclient-dev

[*] DB Support: Enable the postgresql driver with the following command:
[*] * This requires libpq-dev and a build environment
[*] $ gem install postgres
[*] $ gem install pg # is an alternative that may work
