@nic96 Thanks for the quick fix!

I did not originally create this package. I would have never done that, but I guess I never really looked into this PKGBUILD either. It should be fixed now and also kiwix-serve is now also exposed to /usr/bin

This package sets wrong permissions on /usr/lib/kiwix and /usr/bin/kiwix - those files are writable by everybody. This is a security concern. Please fix the permissions.

Also, could you please expose kiwix-server to /usr/bin as well?

The md5sum check passes by me.
Maybe retry installing it.

nic96 commented on 2015-02-13 23:04

Might they have repackaged it? I'll check the md5sum again right away.
Meanwhile you could edit the PKGBUILD and replace the md5sum with SKIP to skip checking.

I'm afraid I have no idea what's the problem. It's working OK for me with amd_64 architecture.
May be you could check http://sourceforge.net/p/kiwix/discussion/604122/thread/ec2e18f8
