ah, I read that as "same config files as on CentOS5". Sorry.

The udev (hotplug-ng) files should fix this. You probably know better
than I do which versions of RHEL and Fedora this release of CentOS is
closest to, and I know we've had a few discussions about this on the

This is a safety net so that we don't try to send UPS commands to a
non-UPS Belkin device. You can either add "-x productid=0375" to the
command line, or add "productid=0375" to the ups.conf section for this

Since you said this worked under 2.0.4 on Mandriva, I will suggest
that this product ID be added to the driver for the next release. (The
2.0.4 Belkin HID driver apparently didn't check the VID at all, just
the PID.)
