    Hello,
    I've tried kiwix-0.8-rc2 (very great software!), but for running it on my system (slackware 12.2) I had to do the following:

    -remove the two options "-executable" from kiwix.sh
    -in the folder "kiwix/xulrunner/", make the symbolic links:
    ln -s libplc4.so libplc4.so.0d
    ln -s libnspr4.so libnspr4.so.0d
    ln -s libplds4.so libplds4.so.0d

      Hi,
      My "find" command came from gnu findutils-4.2.31, this version don't recognize -executable option (but I found that the latest findutils-4.4.2 it does).
      The extras libraries aren't needed for xulrunner executable, but for the kiwix c
      omponents (try: ldd kiwix/components/zimAccessor.so)

        OK, that is clear now.

        I have integrated the changes:
        http://kiwix.svn.sourceforge.net/viewvc/kiwix?view=rev&revision=752

        The root cause for the dynlib issue is certainly that I compile against the system installed xulrunner libs and I should do that against the sdk.

        Regards
        Emmanuel

      Hi,
      Thank you for your feedback and congratulaions, with them we will be better.

      I think to integrate your propositions, this can only be better for, especially for Slackware users.

      The problems is that I do not understand:
      why your "find" doe not work correctly with the "-executable" param
      why the same binary (xulrunner/xulrunner) needs different dynlib files on different linux distrib. (works good by me on ubuntu)

      Do you have ideas?

      Regards
      Emmanuel
