Build instructions

When building the addon you have to use the correct branch depending on which version of Kodi you're building against. For example, if you're building the master branch of Kodi you should checkout the master branch of this repository. Also make sure you follow this README from the branch in question.


The following instructions assume you will have built Kodi already in the kodi-build directory suggested by the README.

  1. git clone
  2. git clone
  3. cd vfs.libarchive && mkdir build && cd build
  4. cmake -DADDONS_TO_BUILD=vfs.libarchive -DADDON_SRC_PREFIX=../.. -DCMAKE_BUILD_TYPE=Debug -DCMAKE_INSTALL_PREFIX=../../xbmc/kodi-build/addons -DPACKAGE_ZIP=1 ../../xbmc/cmake/addons
  5. make

The addon files will be placed in ../../xbmc/kodi-build/addons so if you build Kodi from source and run it directly the addon will be available as a system addon.

You can’t perform that action at this time.
