Hey Artyom,
thank you for your line of code. I added a patch to the PKGBUILD that replaces line 53 with your code. Now the compilation works again.

FillFeile, you must edit getopt.h located in /vpcs/src/ at line 53:
Replace "int getopt(int argc,char** argv,char* optstr);"
By "int getopt(int argc,char *const *argv,const char *optstr);"
Now the compilation should work.
For GNS3 users, set the VPCS executable to location to the file "vpcs" created from the compilation.

Hi Time0o, thanks for pointing this out. I was able to reproduce your error. As I'm not a great C developer, could you provide me with a simple patch file for fixing this? I would add it afterwards to the package.

This fails to compile for me out of the box as of now because of conflicting function declarations in getopt.h and /usr/include/bits/getopt_core.h. This can be easily fixed by just adding some 'const's to to the declaration in getopt.h.

Changed to source tarball from github GNS3 repo. Not downloading binary file anymore. Building package from source now.

Hi Cravix, thank you for reporting and sharing your solution. I can reproduce the issue and will fix the PKBGUILD till the end of this week. Cheers, FillFeile.

Seems the binary file provided is not compatible with current arch linux, I can only type 2 characters and then it returns.
And I just found the solution: download the source from , and compile it, copy the generated "vpcs" file into /usr/bin.
