Is the powerpanel driver supposed to work with the supplied USB thing,
or connected to a standard serial port?
[goes away to read the driver source]
Oh, I guess it wants to talk serial. I'll have to plug it back into the
serial port when I get home. I'd rather get the USB thing working
though so my serial port is free for other uses.
As for trying the usbhid-ups driver, I am for sure trying to run it as
root but still having problem, this is the output:
root at pepper:/usr/local/ups/bin# ./usbhid-ups -u root -D -D -D -D -a

The USB bus layout here is extremely simple: one root hub with one
port. /proc/bus/usb/devices tells me this about the CyberPower USB
device. Is there supposed to be a driver loaded for it?
