I cannot connect to my ups (USB tripplite 1000omniLCD):

# ./usbhid-ups -DD -u root -a z2ups
Network UPS Tools: 0.28 USB communication driver 0.28 - core 0.30 (2.1.0)

here is what I have in /dev/usb:

/dev/usb/hid1 shoudl be my UPS.

Now I don't have much experience with usb on unix, any ideas on what should I do to make this work?

This is the configure I have executed:

./configure --with-user=ups --with-group=ups

Here are the versions of the tools:

$ libtool --version
ltmain.sh (GNU libtool) 1.5.22 (1.1220.2.365 2005/12/18 22:14:06)

$ autoconf --version
autoconf (GNU Autoconf) 2.59
Written by David J. MacKenzie and Akim Demaille.

$ automake --version
automake (GNU automake) 1.9.6
Written by Tom Tromey <tromey at redhat.com>.

Will try to disable Net-SNMP and HAL and see if it builds

I think libtool is objecting to the '-R../lib' part. Did you use any
relative paths in anything that you passed to configure?

You might try disabling HAL or Net-SNMP support and seeing if that goes away.

Which versions of autoconf, libtool, automake, etc. are you using?
