Hi guys, I need your help or I will have to delete a beautiful distribution (BackTrack).

At first sorry for my english (I am Slovak).

A few days ago I decided try Linux finally. After few problems (mostly with booting) everything is going good. BUT.. after I start working with this linux (fund some guide on internet about updating and soever) I tried to update system. First was update then upgrade and then pop up 2 errors (first fixed immediately) but second is some error called "w3af". I tried many guides founded on internet which should fix it but any of them works. So now I am looking for some help here. I will post here also a picture of that error.

Linux BackTrack 5 R3

Ask your question in a new thread for maximum help. Plus, it is against this forums rules to "hijack" a thread:eek:.
