Thank you @Espionage . I'm afraid there isn't anything we can do about that on the PKGBUILD side since having it conflict with lua doesn't seem to make sense...

I've found that doing a makepkg of this package (or any other AUR conky package with lua support) when lua 5.3 is installed will cause it to build incorrectly. This causes a segmentation fault when the lua_load function in a conky configuration file is called. The solution to this problem is apparently to re-run the makepkg after having removed lua 5.3 from the system, as this package uses the lua51 package (i.e. Lua 5.1).

I wanted to post this here because it was quite frustrating for a number of hours of debugging until finally identifying the issue based on my interpretation of a gdb output which seemed to be looking for the lua 5.1 dependencies but not finding them.

I installed the lua 5.3 package after having successfully tested the lua_load function in a conky configuration script and it now appears to work despite the presence of both lua 5.3, 5.1 (and 5.2 which is required for some parts of GNOME).

I found the issue. Line 61 in doc/CMakeFiles/docs.dir/build.make is the problem. xsltproc was not downloading the file. A look at the Docbook Wiki shows this as a none error. As suggested I reinstalled docbook-xsl and docbook-xlt. The package installed without a hitch.

I cannot reproduce this, @graybeard. Maybe it's just a problem with internet or server speed?

I am experiencing the exact same issue as argamanaz did back on 2016-04-16.
A solution was never posted.
Does anyone know why the file is not downloading? When done manually it download without an issue.

"git" should be added as a (build or runtime) dependency *only* if it is a direct dependency of conky-lua. From the discussion on the forum[1], which is still not finished, it seems that one of the dependencies of this package is missing "git" in its own PKGBUILD. That is the resonsibility of the that package's maintainer.

oberon2007, this seems to be missing a dependency on git.

cheers

Added a simple patch. You will still see some warnings about deprecated exception handling but it builds now.

Looks like conky devs needs to fix their code...

I see, so you are on testing and gcc 7 is the issue... Will try to fix it.
