The serial-to-USB converter is different from the ones we already support
in the 'megatec_usb' driver, which can be seen from the different VID:PID
combination. This is a whole different beast, the 'megatec_usb' driver
won't work with it as it is.

We do warn for this in 'docs/nut-hal.txt':

Packaging information

The HAL support in NUT must currently be packaged separatly (ie in a
specific nut-hal package) and must conflict with the classic nut packages.
This is in order to:
- allow shipping of the HAL support only in the base system, without
including all the NUT drivers and software,
- prevent the NUT HAL addons to get an exclusive and automatic access on a
device, when a user only want to use the USB support with a classic NUT

So complain to the person that packaged NUT for you... :-)

Best regards, Arjen
