Hi all, 

I just got myself 2 APC Back-UPS CS 350

I downloaded the stable nut tar.gz installed it.
This is not the first time i install and configure nut so i used the
same configuration as on my other server as i always did. Then i made
the 2 required modification. I changed these 2 thing:
        driver = apcsmart
        port = /dev/hiddev0

# ls -al /dev/hiddev0
crw------- 1 nut nut 180, 96 Nov 27 09:07 /dev/hiddev0

When i try to start nut i get the following :

# upsdrvctl start
Network UPS Tools - UPS driver controller 2.2.0-
Network UPS Tools (version 2.2.0-) - APC Smart protocol driver
	Driver version 1.99.8, command table version 2.0
tcgetattr(/dev/hiddev0): Invalid argument
Driver failed to start (exit status=1)

Thanks in advance if someone can help !
