works fine with openssl-1.0 1.0.2.k-4 in [testing], you should update to depend on it, when it hits [extra] as libopenssl-1.0-compat is orphaned

@BluePeril, libopenssl-1.0-compat depending fixed with the same version to avoid all users to reinstall the package.

lib32-libopenssl-1.0-compat does not exist for i686

@dkaylor, gcc-multilib depending removed with the same version to avoid all users to reinstall the package.
@ingwia, there isn't an obligation to resolves the other users faults, nevertheless, it seems to be java problem, reinstall jdk8-openjdk, jre8-openjdk and jre8-openjdk-headless.

I am wondering why the lib32 stuff is needed for the x86_64 arch. Why is this still depending on gcc-multilib?

Two months now and I still don't have a solution for the segmentation fault problem.

Here's the output:

And here's the log entry for its PID:

Finally figured it out: (Here is the complete procedure)
1. Download the snapshot from this AUR
2. tar -zxf the packettracer.tar.gz snapshot (creates the dir packettracer/ with the PKGBUILD in it)
3. Download a packettracer7.0 tarball from your Netacad account and copy it into the dir above.
4. Package with the command $makepkg (creates a packettracer-7.0-2-x86_64.pkg.tar.xz pkg)
5. Install the package with either $maakepkg -i or $sudo pacman -U packettracer-7.0-2-x86_64.pkg.tar.xz
6. Download debians openssl-1.0.0 libraries from here ( and extract
7. Once extracted, you will find the relevent libraries under the path (<dir>/data/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/)
8. Copy both files into packettracer's libraries installation location (/usr/share/packettracer/lib)
9. Edit the following line in the file /usr/bin/packettracer to match: (export LD_LIBRARY_PATH="/usr/share/packettracer/lib")
10. Input the command "packettracer" in your terminal.
