@FFY00, Changed.

FFY00 commented on 2019-03-11 21:01

You should also drop all the _x86_64 stuff, there's no other architecture available.

FFY00 commented on 2019-03-11 20:50

Hello, please fix the package as I stated bellow or I'll orphan it.

FFY00 commented on 2019-03-01 23:45

You are working with a binary blob. This should be installed to /opt.


It falls under "Large self-contained packages".

Also, where the hell did you read installing to /opt is disallowed?!

@FFY00, installing to opt is disallowed, install in /usr/share/packettracer/ makes that more clean and follow arch-guidelines.

FFY00 commented on 2019-02-25 11:19

Please intsall this to /opt!

I think we can safely replace icu52 dependency by icu (or currently icu63). Then it compile for me.

-depends_x86_64=('openssl-1.0' 'libpng12' 'icu52') +depends_x86_64=('openssl-1.0' 'libpng12' 'icu')

You can use this link rather than the fucking netacad offical site.

I don't mind legal problems.

For people using the AUR-helper "yay":

Download the tarball from Cisco.

yay -S packettracer


mv tarball /home/$USER/.cache/yay/packettracer

Then finish the yay -S install.
