Wo gibt es weitere Inhalte?
Kiwix uses the ZIM format. We release our own ZIM files which are available for download in the Kiwix library (in the software). You can also use the Book creator on Wikipedia to generate your own ZIM files.
Meine ZIM-Datei ist zu groß. Was kann ich tun?
USB flash drives and memory cards are often formatted using the FAT32 filesystem which can't store files bigger than 4GB. Kiwix is able to deal with 2GB splitted ZIM files. The splitted ZIM files must be named xxx.zimaa, xxx.zimab, xxx.zimac, etc. To split a ZIM file you may use:
  • On Microsoft Windows: FSJ-Lite,
  • On Apple Mac OSX: Split&Concat
  • On GNU/Linux and with the console: split --bytes=2000M my_big_file.zim

To be readable by Kiwix, all chunks must be located in the same folder. Open then the xxx.zimaa file with Kiwix.

Warum gibt es Kiwix nicht für PPC-Macs?
Wir verfügen nicht über die entsprechende Hardware. Außerdem ist diese Architektur nicht mehr aktuell.
Können ZIM-Dateien aktualisiert werden?
Die ZIM-Datei selbst kann nicht aktualisiert werden. Die Aktualisierung erfolgt also dadurch, dass man eine neue ZIM-Datei herunterlädt oder erstellt.
Wie kann ich selbst ZIM-Dateien erstellen?
To export articles from Wikipedia and other Wikimedia projects, please go to their Special:Book. For any other use case, this is unfortunately still too complicated (in short: Parsoid needs to be installed, then mwoffliner + zimwriterfs). Please read this page if you want to have some information.
Kann der Volltextsuchindex optimiert werden?
Dazu bitte das Script "./kiwix-compact" ausführen, das genau dazu da ist. Die Größe der Indexdatein sollte sich dadurch ungefähr halbieren.
Wie kann man eine pre-indexierte ZIM-Datei auf Mac OSX installieren?
Verschiebe oder kopiere das Datenverzeichnis in "/Applications/". Vielleicht wirst du ins Kiwixarchiv gehen müssen, um die ZIM Datei herunter zu laden.
Is there a user forum where Kiwix users can exchange experiences and help each other?
I have downloaded a ZIP file (pre-indexed ZIM file) but I can't unzip it, the file seems to be corrupted. What should I do?
Use an unpacking software which supports the ZIP64 format (ZIP format for big files), like for example 7-zip. If this still fails, then your file was corrupted during the transfer, please restart the download using BitTorrent, then it will work.
I can't copy Kiwix on my USB flash drive because the index files (*.idx directory) are too big.
USB flash drives are often formatted using the FAT32 filesystem which can't store files bigger than 4GB. We recommend to use exFAT or NTFS which can deal with big files and are broadly supported.
Wie kann ich einen Artikel direkt beim Start von Kiwix laden?
Starte Kiwix von der Kommandozeile mit der Option -articleByUrl
kiwix.exe -articleByUrl "zim://A/foo.html" bar.zim
