Hi I get an Error even before the build process:

checking for CLucene.h... yes
checking for open in -lclucene... no
configure: error: cannot find clucene

The Problem is I have definitely installed clucene. Is it my fault or is this package not working anymore ?

Could you make a new package with Kiwix 0.9 beta1 ?
Here is the dist tgz
Check to add the aria2 dependence...

@smradlev @zwirks

The problem is that you try to compile Kiwix against the new xulrunner 2.0.
Currently (and the AUR packages) compiles/runs only against xulrunner 1.9.x.x.

We are working on that. I have open a feature request to track this issue:

I get the same error as zwirks.

I have no clue what is going on - hope it helps to solve the problem (maybe it is not only on my box)

Hi, I'm a Kiwix developer and I have got feedbacks with something like "the Kiwix Arch Package does not work".
By starting kiwix, none of the XPCOM components could be registered.

Unable to register the zimAccessor XPCOM, Kiwix will be unable to read ZIM files.
Unable to register the xapianAccessor XPCOM, Kiwix will be unable to provide the search engine.
Unable to register the zimXapianIndexer XPCOM, Kiwix will be unable to index ZIM files.

I do not know neither Arch nor the Arch Packaging system but I'm interested in fixing the issue.
Maybe we can achieve that together?
