Sorry to jump in on Rob's reply, but one thing with NUT (like the  
kernel, but more so) is that it is tied into things like the system's  
shutdown procedure. It is harder to set that up from scratch than it  
is to attempt to work with the packages you already have.

Another compromise would be to see if there is a newer SRPM on RawHide  
(or whatever they're calling that these days).

(In this particular case, I don't see any usbhid-ups driver-side  
differences between v2.2.2 and v2.4.1, besides a refactoring in how  
the USB IDs are matched, so upgrading may not solve anything by itself.)

The "UPS driver controller" is what should be starting usbhid-ups. Can  
you post your /etc/nut/ups.conf file?

upsmon wants to talk to the driver through upsd, so this may be fixed  
by the driver issue.
