Will this be bumped to include the fix for the negative memory usage soon?

I don't know as I haven't used the old one for ages. I am suspecting it's the nvidia side of the package that slows it down. How does nvidia tie with conky?

Well there is no particular difference between this package and the other flavours of conky; just flicking some build-time switches.

Do you have the same issue with older versions of conky?

After the recent upgrade, conky-lua suddenly runs slow. I have a lua script that draws and computes a number of rings. I then have a conky script that loads this lua updated every 0.5 seconds. If I don't load the lua script, the conky script updates at 0.5/sec but if run it with the lua script loaded, all the rings are frozen and conky goes exceedingly slow. I experimented by adding each ring one by one, and for each ring I add, lua becomes slower and until about drawing the 8th rings the all rings just freeze. It seems like lua is not computing fast enough to cover conky's update_rate.

I experimented and installed the other package conky-lua and the problem doesn't happen there so the problem here might have to do then with the recent nvidia driver update.

Does anybody have the same experience? Is there a fix?

Great. I will move libxvnctrl to makedepends then. Thanks for the update!

Yes! Rebuilding the package works. Thanks for your time.

I'll try rebuilding the package and let you know.

Hi! It seems Arch Linux dropped the shared library from the libxnvctrl package. I'm not sure if this is a packaging error or intended. Compilation should pick up the static library though. Does rebuilding the package help?

After some recent nvidia updates, conky stopped working and I'm getting this error:

conky: error while loading shared libraries: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

However, if I use the conky-nvidia package, conky works albeit without the lua.

Any fix on this?

Unfortunately that's an issue with the standard Arch package as well. It shouldn't affect functionality.
