I had to import the keys via:

curl | gpg --import -

@uzer I'd already figured out where the correct link was, but the package is still out of date. Bindiff is on version 6, so changing the version number to 6 and changing the source urls to the correct one like in your patch (and fixing the sha256sum, the pgp key doesn't need changing) is necessary to bring this package up to date.

@gardot426 My patch below addresses this problem.

This package is completely broken. The sources lead to dead links.

Hi. I've created a patch to update the package to version 6. Can you please merge it?

I'm assuming most people buy a Windows license (since it's by far the cheapest option if you run on multiple platforms; IDA works perfectly with Wine on Linux and macOS).

Want me to change the post-install message?

Thanks for your package, but something you said at the end of the install is wrong. You give the url of the window plugins...
In fact the plugin for linux is in the package you already downloaded: bindiff420-debian8-amd64.deb. When you extract it, you can find it in opt/zynamics/BinDiff/plugins/zynamics_bin* to his .idapro/plugins folder.

I already have depends=('java-runtime>=8').

If I force Java 8, it's going to be a pain to launch with Java 9.

You need Java 9 for HiDPI.

== EDIT ==

it works if I do this before launching bindiff:
export PATH=/usr/lib/jvm/java-8-openjdk/jre/bin/:$PATH

can you write a wrapper to force java8? most of my apps need java7 that's why it's my default.


Unfortunately this doesn't work for me:
