I was just wondering whether anyone had similar problems to those I'm
experiencing now... I have an APC BackUPS-Pro, and I'm trying to get
powerd to recognize the UPS. The UPS is on COM1 and modem on COM2 in
DOS/Win95, but in Linux my modem is on /dev/cua0 (I'd think it should be
on /dev/cua1, but it works...), and UPS is NOT on any existing ports. I
went through all ports I had with the powerd, but to no avail.
setserial reports the correct values for all serial ports. I tried
using other power daemons, but they do not report errors, while powerd
at least puts the line "UPS connection failed" into /var/log/messages.
I'm using RedHat 4.2 (2.0.30), with modular serial support. The kernel
automatically inserts the correct serial module. Does anyone know
whether generic powerd works with APCs? One of the previous power
daemons (apcupsd) put a symbolic link apcupsd->/dev/ttyS0, but it
doesn't work on that port either.
