Does not work with me : you should 1. uncompress 2. ./install 3. launch


./PacketTracer7: error while loading shared libraries: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

I too get the same error. It seems to open and shutdown almost immediately. Apparently sudo ldd /opt/pt/bin/PacketTracer lists all shared objects, among them I find: => /lib64/ (0x00007f5ce9376000) => /lib64/ (0x00007f5cde28b000)

I personally get:

    ./PacketTracer7: /usr/lib64/ no version information available (required by ./PacketTracer7)
QFSFileEngine::open: No file name specified

Works right out of the box for Ubuntu users but not Fedora users. Poor job Cisco!
