vfs,rar RAR archive support: Not enough mem available to decompress file (libr scan)
#1
Hi,

I have Kodi 19 installed and am using the VFS RAR - v4.0 now. When I scan my library, which contains RAR-files, I got a message pop-up in the bottom
right saying "RAR archive support: Not enough memory available to decompress file".

Now, as far as I can see it still scans the files properly, and they show up in my Library. But, the message is annoying me greatly.
I run Kodi on Windows 10, and the system has 16 GB memory.

In kodi.log I do see this message: 2021-04-26 16:50:09.266 T:7816    ERROR <general>: AddOnLog: vfs.rar: CRarFile::Open: Open failed to cache file 
many times over. So this might be linked to the message. But I have no idea what cache file it might be talking about.

In kodi.log I also see this: special://temp/ is mapped to: C:\Users\kodi\AppData\Roaming\Kodi\cache
And that directory does exist and is filled with random files, and also a subdir archive_cache.

No idea if the 2 are related or not.

I was running Kodi 18 before, and I had big issues with "RAR archive support"  (vfs.rar) >2.0.8. At one point version 2.20 got released I think, and basically it
broke the scanning of RAR-files for me. I manually put back 2.0.8 and kept it at that version, and it worked fine. 

I also tried libarchive - but that increases my library scan from 15s to about 2-3 minutes. Also, with libarchive I can't play movies that are in rar-files,
I seem to need "RAR archive support" (vfs.rar) for that.

I had hoped that in Kodi 19 VFS.rar would have been fixed - but not totally yet it seems.

Anybody has any idea about my error messages and possible solution?
