Description of problem:
Per that mailing list thread, conky 1.4.9 can no longer read apci/battery
information since they moved with 2.6.24 kernels. The developer has provided a
patch, no ETA on when the next release might be. Fedora should include this
patch in its conky package since it is using the 2.6.24 kernel.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install fedora with 2.6.24 kernel (current in repos is 126.96.36.199-34.fc8)
2. Install conky 1.4.9 (which is current in repos)
3. Launch conky with any of the battery variables in the .conkyrc
No battery information is provided. battery returns nothing, battery_bar is
empty, battery_percent is 0.
Accurately reflect battery status in various variables.
