Thanks for your comment.
Sorry, what's the "bot build"? I don't speak English very much.

I tested it in my 64 bit computer and I have the same problem.

Installing the needed lib32 libraries and the i686 version works fine for me.
I'm think about changing the PKGBUILD to use the i686 version instead of the amd_64 one, for now.
Needs to replace gcc-libs, binutils and gcc with gcc-libs-multilib, binutils-multilib and gcc-multilib. Then, install lib32-dbus-glib.

Do you think it's a good idea? I'm going to change it tomorrow if there aren't any other comment.

Having this problem:

I downloaded the latest bot build of kiwi 64bit and it is working fine.

Bug fixed upstream.

There is a bug when you run kiwix in an x86_64 architecture. If you try to scroll down in the open file dialog, kiwix crashes and keeps a process running in the background. You can avoid this by either maximizing the window so yo don't have to scroll down, or putting the file you want to load in a cleaner folder.
Any suggestions are welcome. Enjoy it!

Can't build the package, I get the following error during the config: "configure: error: cannot find the xpidl binary"

Any idea ?

The PKGBUILD below solves the clucene problem. But a new problem appears:

You better ask the kiwix developer about this, since it seems the package is asking for the open function into clucene library and it seems is missing from this clucene release.

Hello! I'm trying to compile 0.9 beta1 by my self, but I get the same error as "khelek":
checking for CLucene.h... yes
checking for open in -lclucene... no
configure: error: cannot find clucene

Any idea?
