Did you use a zimfile from the kiwix archive? Can you tell us exactly which
one u used?

No, it should work right away, but there are minor differences between the
two kinds of files produced by openzim and kiwix.

The process to create zimfiles for now relies on html dumps because xml

Absolutely. The idea is to produce zim files for all kinds of wikis. Okawix
