Seems like kiwix doesn't run/build with icu-61.1-1, requires icu-60.2-1 for the moment.

The package always builds from HEAD, so it makes sense that it gets rebuilt every time you try to upgrade it, if you build from AUR. There are some other -git packages like that around.

The problem with Kiwix is that it doesn't have a good milestone to snap to - the last release was 0.9, but that has some dependencies that are no longer around, so building it from source is not viable (kiwix-bin package can snap to it because it doesn't build everything).

I'll check and fix the issues with dependencies; thank you for reporting them!

Attempting to install this on a fresh Arch install failed until I installed:


Can you add these to the dependencies?

This package insists to be reinstalled everytime I run `pacaur -Syu`. No other -git package does this. Could you please adjust it? I think the version 0.0.0 is causing this.

If the package 'upx' is installed, the compilation of 'kiwix-bin-cli' fails because of the 'AlreadyPackedException' exception below:
