Hi Chris,

first, please keep the traffic on the list, since other people may be
interested in the topic.

it's exactly that, not harder.

the patch is attached. please beware that if I've not committed it to the
NUT code repository, it's because of a lack of testing!
so even if my confidence level is good, not all my green lights are lit.

to apply the patch, go into the NUT source directory and use:
$ patch -p0 < /path/to/snmp-ups-0outlet.diff

note that it applies fine on 2.6.5.
then just "make && make install" as previously

I'm interested in a driver debug trace, using:
$ /path/to/snmp-ups -DDDDD -a UPS-HP01

If the driver doesn't crash, just Ctrl+C after a couple of minutes.
in all cases, send back the trace in compressed form please.
