Summary0003692: w3af is not launched
DescriptionWhen I try to launch w3af, I receive this error:

root@kali-virtualbox:~# w3af
It seems that your Python installation does not have all the modules required by the w3af framework. For more information about how to install and debug dependency issues please browse to http://docs.w3af.org/en/latest/install.html

I've reproduced this error in two differents Kali installations.
Steps To Reproduceapt-get update
apt-get upgrade
apt-get dist-upgrade
Additional InformationIf I try to install python-netlib, apt removes w3af installation. In the same way, if I try to install w3af with python-netlib installed, it removes python-netlib.

w3af is already the newest version (1.6.54+git20160429-3kali1).
w3af set to manually installed.

the neblib python modules is now provided by mitmproxy (on which w3af-console depends) so the installation conflict is expected. But somehow there must be some version mismatch between the two explaining this error.

Thanks for the report, we will look into it.


sbrun (manager)

the new mitmproxy (version 0.18.1) is not compatible with w3af. I included in w3af the old version of mitmproxy (mitmproxy, netlib and pathod).
New version of w3af is 1.6.54+git20160429+1-0kali1
