upsd might not give you much lovin' in general, but it sure does churn
out a bunch of error messages if something goes wrong.

You didn't mention your OS details, but you can probably get some idea
of what went wrong by grepping for 'upsd' in /var/log. Other tidbits,
such as when you downloaded the source (and patches), and what you
passed to the configure script, might help pin things down.

Also, it might help to see some of the driver output to be sure that
it is actually starting.

(As a guideline, please keep such diagnostic posts under 20-30 kB, and
gzip files if they're longer than a couple of pages.)
