Thank you Kjell,

The permissions scripts (hotplug-ng) are missing from the SuSE 10.1 
distribution. In the end I downloaded the sources to get the script I needed 
then discovered your solution of adding the following lines:

# Powerware - bcmxcp_usb
SYSFS{idVendor}=="0592", SYSFS{idProduct}=="0002", MODE="660", GROUP="nut"

in a file called:


did the trick once I found the typo I managed to introduce from your post :-(

Its a shame the 10.1 docs still refer to hotplug that caused a lengthy 
distraction. The above seems to be the only addition required to the standard 
10.1 distribution.

Now to get on with checking that it does its shut down the way its supposed 
to ! 

Many Thanks

Gary Pearce
