Description Michael Cronenworth 2020-10-27 20:52:02 UTC
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; Fedora; Linux x86_64; rv:82.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/82.0 Build Identifier: $ conky conky: Syntax error (/home/user/.conkyrc:2: unexpected symbol near '#') while reading config file. conky: Assuming it's in old syntax and attempting conversion. conky: [string "..."]:159: attempt to call a nil value (global 'loadstring') Reproducible: Always Actual Results: Conky does not start Expected Results: Conky starts A dependency must have changed? My conky config has not changed in two years. The conky versions in F32 and F33 are the same.
Comment 1 Michael Cronenworth 2020-10-31 03:10:22 UTC
Renaming title to what the issue is. Converting my conkyrc to lua allows conky to start. I see lua was updated from 5.3 (F32) to 5.4 (F33) so that may be the issue.
Comment 2 Miroslav Lichvar 2021-03-08 13:34:41 UTC
It seems to be working for me. Can you please post a sample config that triggers this bug?
Comment 3 Michael Cronenworth 2021-03-08 13:50:06 UTC
Any v1.0 config format triggers a failure to start. I'll paste in a single liner that fails. It doesn't matter if it is a single line or hundreds of lines. Comments or no comments. $ cat .conkyrc Host: Test
Comment 4 Miroslav Lichvar 2021-03-08 14:42:42 UTC
Ok, that fails on both F32 and F33. There is an upstream fix: https://github.com/brndnmtthws/conky/pull/1002 Maybe we can rebase to 1.12.1.
Comment 5 Fedora Update System 2021-03-08 16:02:24 UTC
FEDORA-2021-a63faa439d has been submitted as an update to Fedora 33. https://bodhi.fedoraproject.org/updates/FEDORA-2021-a63faa439d
Comment 6 Miroslav Lichvar 2021-03-08 16:26:40 UTC
FWIW, that single-line reproducer still doesn't work with the new version. I think a minimal valid old-syntax config should contain some TEXT.

Comment 8 Michael Cronenworth 2021-03-09 13:14:05 UTC
Yes, a TEXT block works just fine with the new update. Thanks, although I've switched to a Lua file now.
