Thanks, I moved to the Debian Etch version (Etch is close to release
anyway), and it certainly does something now. Still have to test if it
is what I am expecting.

As for the status of the driver, I doubt I can help much as I only have
the one ups, and I am not in the same location as it very often so won't
be much good for devloping...

Thanks for the reply!
