By way of introduction:
I work on pkgsrc, used on NetBSD, illumos/smartos/etc., and also lots of
others (mac, FreeBSD, AIX, Linux).
I've been running nut for a long time, on 2 NetBSD systems with a Best
Power Fortress 660. (That was a great UPS to buy in 1995, and with
new batteries still works fine today, with a real serial port for an
I wrote a python program to report UPS status via MQTT to Home
Assistant, where it sends once a minute if nothing interesting is
happening, and right away (every 2s polling) if values change a lot or
power fails. I get prompt notifications of input voltage going to 0,
or if the UPS transfers to battery and stays that way for 5s. I am
working on cleaning it up and detangling my config so I can publish
Sorry if I asked this before. At:
it says there is a nut packaging list, but the link says there isn't.
It seems fine to have that discussion here though, so I suggest just
dropping the description of the packaging list.
We just had a discussion on the mqtt list about the paho mqtt module
dropping python 2.7 support, and I noted that nut's module was 2.7 only
(in a release) but then I built it from git and found that PyNUT.py now
does python 3. Thanks Jim, another heroic effort.
I was able to build nut from git on NetBSD 9 amd64. I haven't tried to
run it or package it.
That leads me to wonder how close we are to an alpha of a new release.
