Thanks for suggetions and keep me indumb about making of Debian packages:D
I will try this package "nut_2.2.0-2_i386.deb"
One little questionm, shoud I use newmge-shut driver? - my ups is quite
old - more then 3 years, connected through serial cable.

Special thanks to Arnaud for this, I suspected something like this (I have
seen what is inside my ups - one rpocessor like thing connected through 4
pins to the power module, the small plate also includes a famous 555
analog timer,  such a seriouse hardware can not do much). This is again a
reason to shutdown the box(es) as quick as possible, keep it ups load
switch off as long as possible.


PS: I necer have so good support for any sw at all - include my own:)
