@Popolon, the AUR rules of rules of submission state (emphasis mine):

Packages that use prebuilt deliverables, when the sources are available, must use the -bin suffix.

When I first uploaded this package, I chose to omit the -bin suffix (re-using the name of the Debian package verbatim) as there were no sources available for Waveforms, and I did not to expect there to ever be any. Since Digilent continues to keep Waveforms proprietary, and because the current package naming is consistent with a number of other proprietary AUR packages (including the top three by votes, dropbox, spotify, and google-chrome), and because the existence of a -bin package tends to imply the existence of a non-bin package (and it can be confusing when there isn't one), I won't be renaming this package to add the -bin.

If Digilent ever releases the source to Waveforms, I'll happily change this package to build from those sources. And if the AUR binary package naming policy changes, I'll rename the package accordingly.

please use -bin when it comes from binaries (as asked in AUR documentation), you are fucking free-softwares else :(

Thanks! It works perfectly on Manjaro.

Hi, first of all, thanks for the package! I found out that installing it is not possible due to the expired TLS certificate of the download link (x86_64). Downloading via plain http, from the same URL, works fine. It seems like downloading through https needs a link with a token, like it is the case with digilent.adept.runtime.

I had problems using this - it would segfault every time I connected my Discovery2. I then read up on https://forum.digilentinc.com/topic/2936-waveforms-2015-segmentation-fault-ubuntu-16041-x86-64-analog-discovery-1-analog-discovery-2/ and on https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/glibc/+bug/1642390 that this segfault is caused by libc being compiled with support for lock elisions, which has to do with threads at the level of the CPU. Evidently this hardware feature is 'broken' on some Intel CPUs (specifically Skylake - which I have in my machine). The only way to resolve this at the moment is to disable the compilation of elision locking in glibc.

Thank you for providing this package. Works on my Beaglebone Black arm platform :)
