{{FAQ_entry|question=Why is Kiwix not available for PPC Macs?|answer=We do not have a PPC architectured Mac and this architecture is outdated.}}
{{FAQ_entry|question=Where can I find new content?|answer=Kiwix uses the [http://openzim.org ZIM format]. We release our own ZIM files which are available to for download in the Kiwix library (in the software). You can also use the [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Special:Book Book creator] on Wikipedia to generate your own ZIM files.}}
{{FAQ_entry|question=Is it possible to update a ZIM file?|answer=It is not possible to update a ZIM file itself, but you may download a new ZIM file with updated versions of the contents.}}
{{FAQ_entry|question=How can I build by myself a ZIM fileby myself?|answer=To export articles from Wikipedia , please go to [http://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=Special:Book this page]. For any other use case, this is unfortunately still too complicated. Please read [https://openzim.org/Build_your_ZIM_file this page] if you want to have a few some information.}}
{{FAQ_entry|question=How may I optimize the search engine index?|answer=Launch the script "./kiwix-compact" (only available on GNU/Linux) and this should reduce disk use by almost 50%}}
{{FAQ_entry|question=Is there a user forum where kiwix users can exchange experiences and help each other?|answer=Yes, it is located at [http://forum.kiwix.org https://forum.kiwix.org]}}
{{FAQ_entry|question=I have downloaded a ZIP file (pre-indexed ZIM file) but I can't unpack it, the file seems to be corrupedcorrupted. What should I do?|answer=Use a an unpacking software which supports the ZIP64 format (ZIP format for big files), like for example [http://www.7-zip.org/ 7-zip]. If this still fails, then your file was corrupted during the transfer, please restart the download using Bittorrent, then it will work.}} {{FAQ_entry|question=I can't copy Kiwix on my USB flash drive because the index file is too big.|answer=USB flash drives are often formated using the FAT32 filesystem which can't store files bigger than 4GB. We recommend to use NTFS which can deal with big files and is broadly supported.}}
