Dear List, The driver usbhid-ups does not detect my MGE Ellipse 1500.

I'm running openSuSE Linux 10.3, kernel 2.6.22 with mgeups-psp-3.0.4-2,
nut-2.2.0-20 installed from MGE's rpm's. (Merci MGE!)

lsusb shows:
Bus 001 Device 004: ID 0463:ffff MGE UPS Systems UPS

/etc/ups/ups.conf says:
        driver = usbhid-ups
        port = auto
        desc = "Local UPS"
        vendorid = 0463

I launched upsdrvctl in debug mode:

pastis: # /usr/lib/ups/driver/upsdrvctl -DDDDD start
Network UPS Tools - UPS driver controller 2.2.0-
Starting UPS: myups
exec: /usr/lib/ups/driver/usbhid-ups -a myups
Network UPS Tools: 0.28 USB communication driver 0.28 - core 0.30 (2.2.0-)

No matching HID UPS found
Driver failed to start (exit status=1)

Any suggestion would be very welcome.
