I need a list of own publications inside a c.v. which is an appendix to my actual document. I'm using currvita for a simple c.v. and I'm trying to employ multibib as suggested in the currvita manual to get the publication list like this (my .bib file is called bibliography.bib)


%lots of stuff and citations

 \item \bibliographycv{bibliography}


The normal bibliography works without a problem and there is no actual error when compiling, but a warning

No file cv.bbl

and the publication list is not created.

Why is it trying to look for cv.bbl? Or: why is it not created?

How are you compiling your document? If your document is test.tex you have to compile like this: (pdf)latex test + bibtex test + bibtex cv + (pdf)latex test + (pdf)latex test. – Gonzalo Medina Mar 28 '11 at 22:58
My bad. I've been trusting my editor to much. "Solution" is below. Shall I leave this question for the benefit of others or rather delete it? – janitor048 Mar 28 '11 at 22:59
@Gonzalo: That's been amazingly synchronous. You're of course right, I was missing the 'bibtex cv' part. – janitor048 Mar 28 '11 at 23:02

Ok. Stupid me. My tex-Editor (Kile) does not automatically generate the bbl files from the aux in this special situation. Manually issuing bibtex cv.aux has been sufficient.
