So after one false start (forgot to emerge libusb) I got the latest
development source compiled cleanly with the newhidups driver. Set my
ups.conf config file up as follows:
driver = newhidups
port = /dev/ups
desc = "My Belkin 800VA"
I've been following the install guide and it fails at this point,
which is the same point hidups failed as well.
yuna nut # /usr/local/ups/bin/upsdrvctl start
Network UPS Tools - UPS driver controller 2.0.3-pre1
Network UPS Tools: New USB/HID UPS driver 0.28 (2.0.3-pre1)
No matching USB/HID UPS found
Driver failed to start (exit status=1)
At this point I have no idea how to proceed. I'm begining to think I
may be missing something else somewhere. I know the HID kernel modules
are installed as lsmod shows 'usbhid' as one modules listed.
Permissions for both /dev entries involved are owned by the ups
process and are chmod 0777.
I've googled my brains out trying to find some answers but nothing so far.
