[SOLVED] Conky errors due to glibc (fix: conkyrc issues)

Hi,
Just as I started writing this out, I found conky working after killing one of the defective conky processes... so I am having a hit and miss relationship with it: 99.9% miss.

conky in the repos works fine when I tried it, having issues that are resolved in git, so I went for conky-git from AUR.

conky-git fails to build using AUR, for myself and someone I've gotten help from who is much more experienced than I.

I manually checked out conky using git from their page, built using cmake (With RSS enabled) and installed successfully. The issue I had from the repo builds was resolved.

But, it's incredibly unstable, for the most part unable to work at all. Earlier this was not appearing, but now the following is in the terminal used to start conky:

*** glibc detected *** conky: corrupted double-linked list: 0x000000000213b170 ***

I get this sometimes in dmesg:

conky[18964]: segfault at 0 ip           (null) sp 00007fff1f978d58 error 14 in conky[400000+ac000]

But more commonly this:

conky[23012]: segfault at 10 ip 00007ffce9ca8b54 sp 00007fff9d333f50 error 4 in libc-2.16.so[7ffce9c2e000+19d000]

conky:

[user@hostname ~]$ 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: desktop window (1e4) is root window
conky: window type - override
conky: drawing to created window (0x1400001)
conky: drawing to double buffer
conky: Unknown setting 'border_margin'
conky: forked to background, pid is 18525
[user@hostname ~]$ 
*** glibc detected *** conky: corrupted double-linked list: 0x0000000000952fd0 ***

Snippets taken at different times so pid's are sometimes different above. Unfortunately I can't weed out under what circumstances I get a different pair of errors: HOWEVER the glibc detected line (first code box) does not appear with the second dmesg bbcode box.

I am new to Arch and Linux in general, but thus far Arch has been most enjoyable. Catalyst absolutely sucks though, will have to forever dual boot for my gaming fix sad Conky is looking to be my last hurdle though!

Thanks

Edit:
Upgrading lib32-glbc to 2.17-1 from 2.16.0-5 from http packages page made no change.

Hey,
There might be something wrong with your conky file!
Please post your conkyrc

Hey,
I went over my config, commenting out bits and trying conky again. Conky works after I remove this line I have to read dmesg:

${execi 30 dmesg | tail -n3 | fold -w100}

Thanks for your suggestion, conky appears to be working now!

I'll look into safer ways to get dmesg into conky.

Thanks qinohe
