  I'll be glad to get the information from my box, but we have to get upsd
running again. See thread: "kernel update to 3.12.5-1, now: upsd[617]:
getaddrinfo: Servname not supported for ai_socktype". upsd quit working after my
kernel update today. I have no ideas what the ai_socktype error is, but I've
seen quite a bit of coding arguments about how to implement it on the web.
Perhaps the latest kernel makes the way nut does it not work anymore. That's for
the other thread though...

  If the output from my udev test is large, I'll just post if for download on my
site and include a link in the email. Thanks again for your help.
