Hi Arnaud.

I’ve applied the patch but it still crashes.  I started from scratch and did the following:

As user ‘nut’:

Unpack the v2.6.5 tarball
Apply the patch
Run ./configure –with-user=nut –with-group=nut –with-snmp
Run make

As user ‘root’:

Run make install
mkdir –p /var/state/ups
chmod 0770 /var/state/ups
chown root:nut /var/state/ups

As user ‘nut’;

Run the debug command.

The debug output is attached.

Hi Arnaud.

Hi Chris,

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

Unfortunately I'm not primarily a developer  (I manage a room full of servers) so I don't have the normal array of development tools.  I built NUT from the downloaded tarball following the instructions in the Installation Guide so If patching means simply amending files I can do that and then rebuild and test it, if you let me know what changes need to be made.

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.
