I guess I don't really understand what you mean here. I did try this and
for me, it works.
# ln -s /usr/lib/ups/driver/safenet /usr/lib/ups/driver/foo
[ restart NUT ]
# upsc fenton at localhost
driver.parameter.modelname: PowerPal P600E
ups.model: PowerPal P600E
So short of the fact that silently symlinking an older driver to a newer
one may not be a good idea at all (and the problems with incompatible
differences in the configuration files), what is the problem here?
Best regards, Arjen
