@runnytu, thank you so much. i've tried to figure out where to put this tar for more than 3 hours

@vilko, in the directory where your system build the AUR packages, if you don't know where is, download the snapshot of this package, untar it and put the packettracer tar in this directory and then makepkg on it.

@runnytu, where exactly I should put packettracer tar? /tmp or /tmp/makepkg does not work for me

@runnytu , thanks ^-^

@pystoi, As i said some times before, packettracer is freeware but not free to redistribute, everybody should open an account to cisco netacad for free and download the desired file for 32 or 64 bits and put them in the source directory in order to build succesfully the package.

@sudojar, you should download and put the packettracer tar in the build directory.

Checked the pkbuild and everything (from my understanding) should be working correctly but I still get this error.

@r4_broadcast, I don't know what is the problem, in the package are both 32 & 64 bits with the differents dependencies for each archs, not is necessary to split.

Since 7.0, Cisco Packet Tracer comes with 32 bit and 64 bit versions. I think now there's a need to separate both, mainly because they don't have the same dependencies. I don't have the experience to maintain an entry to this awesome repo that is the AUR, but I think some one had to acknowledge this fact to the maintainers, so they take the decision to update packages according to the actual packages offered.

Thank You and keep the great work...!!!
