I've earlier successfully installed Cisco PacketTracer but I seem to have forgotten how I did.
I need to upgrade to the newest version, 5.3.3-1.
I have downloaded the tar.gz file from Ciscos web, the only problem I have is where the heck should I put the file?
I am using yaourt to automatically download the AUR files and to resolve dependencies.
I get the following error message:
==> ERROR: PacketTracer533_Generic_Fedora.tar.gz was not found in the build directory and is not a URL.
==> ERROR: Makepkg was unable to build packettracer.
In the PKGBUILD I have the following line:
source=( 'PacketTracer533_Generic_Fedora.tar.gz' 'packettracer' 'linguist' )
md5=('3 different md5 sums')
I've tried to change the source to /dir I have PT.tar.gz/PacketTracer... but that didn't work.
Could anyone point me in the right direction?
Thanks in advance.

Follow these steps (not tested):
2. tar xvzf packettracer.tar.gz
3. cd packettracer
Put the packet tracer (cisco) file in this directory.
4. makepkg -si
5. Enjoy (hopefully).
NOTE: make sure that the file you downloaded from cisco has this name: PacketTracer533_Generic_Fedora.tar.gz, and its md5sum matches the one mentioned in the PKGBUILD.
Well thank you kind sir.
Worked flawlessly except step two where you forgot the switch "-".
BIG thanks, my CCNA studies will be a lot easier now ^^,
oh it actually did, my bad ^^, thought the program would try to tar the xvzf into the packettracer.tar.gz
but maybe it's the reversed order, tar packettracer.tar.gz zvzf that does that part. except it wouldn't be a .gz file just tar 8-)
anyway, thanks a bunch
worked perfectly as well..
