Not lua53 helps, not downgrading lua helps either - makepkg exited with code 4 and that's it. Seems like conky is dead, unless someone with programming/scripting knowledge decides to fix it.

the master branch is renamed to main

Can -D BUILD_NVIDIA=ON be added back? I had to make my custom local package for this.

I'm probably not going to worry too much about this anymore; I've fully transitioned to sway/wayland and conky doesn't play nice.

Surprisingly, I'm not missing it at all - and I've used conky for 8 straight years.

Just posting that I had the same issue as merlock when I updated today, yay -Syu caused the same error. Cloning then using makepkg -si did work for me, however

@amoka - I don't know what else I can do to show you.

@merlock Just tested in clean chroot... builds successfully!

Conky fails to start, due to recent lua upgrade. Install lua53 from the repository solves the problem.

Hi Beini, I built conky-git today* and realized that it is not installing the man page entries for conky. Would you please be so kind and take care of this?

*I wanted to get rid of this bug:

Cheers and thanks a lot Max

I switched to using un-annotated tags, if that's any better.

txtsd commented on 2015-12-21 09:18 (UTC)

`git describe` doesn't output the correct tag because of the 999. Will it be possible to use another method to obtain the package version?
