    apcuspd line 649 error, possible solution

    I have slack 10.0 and found this tidbit hidden in some docs somewhere...
    it fixed my line 649 error messages...

    Apcupsd accesses USB UPSes via the hiddev device nodes. Typically these are located in /dev/hiddevN, /dev/usb/hiddevN or /dev/usb/hiddev/hiddevN (where N is a digit 0 thru 9). Some distributions (some Debian releases, possibly others) do not provides these device nodes for you, so you will have to make them yourself. Check /dev, /dev/usb, and /dev/usb/hiddev and if you cannot find the hiddevN nodes, run (as root) the examples/make-hiddev script from the apcupsd source distribution.

    ahh, Found the source...
    http://www.apcupsd.com/manual/USB_Configuration.html

    Well. Obviously do the config, I personally used
    ./configure --enable-powerflute --enable-usb --enable-net

    with these apcupsd.conf values.

    Btw, my setup may still not be perfected yet. I've done the various power tests as suggested in docs...

    OK, brief powerfailure - unplug, replug
    OK, long powerfailure - unplug to cause shutdown

    The UPS doesn't seem to physically shut off, which of course prevent's a proper test of a clean startup when the power returns.

    I see a quick error message just before the server shuts down, but I'll have to film it with my camera or videorecorder to see what it says.

    I physically push the button on the ups to completely powerdown the ups. Then I plug it back in and push the button again to start it up... which also brings up the servers. definitely not quite ideal. yet.

    slack 10.2 APC UPS weirdness

    I have an APC XS 1500 (RS 1500 according to dmesg), running slackware 10.2. One time after I rebooted, the UPS was attached and showed up in /sys/bus/usb, dmesg, etc., but for whatever reason apctest WOULD NOT run until I unplugged the data cable from the UPS and plugged it back in. After that, everything was fine.
