Negative RAM values in conky
Closed, ResolvedPublic


Since August (yeah, it took a while to report... sorry) the conky program in the repos is affected by this issue, which causes the RAM shown to be incorrect (and sometimes even negative) due to a race condition.

The bug was fixed by this pull request, but since there have been no tagged releases since then, Solus still packages the version with the bug.

Would it be possible to backport the commit? As far as I can see between the commit used by Solus (this one I think) and the fix (this one) there is only another commit, which just bumps the version of conky for the next release.
