[Nut-upsuser] Fw: infosec e4

I’m wondering if what I have done is good :
    # get the source from github on my computer
    # autogen.sh
    # name=nut
    # ./configure --prefix=/ --sysconfdir=/etc/$name --mandir=/usr/share/man 
--libdir=/usr/lib --includedir=/usr/include --datadir=/usr/share/$name 
--with-statepath=/var/run/nut --with-altpidpath=/var/run/nut 
--with-drvpath=/lib/nut --with-pidpath=/var/run/$name 
--with-user=$name –with-group=$name --without-ssl

There was an error :
    ./configure: line 7079: syntax error near unexpected token `CPPUNIT,'
    ./configure: line 7079: `PKG_CHECK_MODULES(CPPUNIT, cppunit, 
    have_cppunit=yes, have_cppunit=no)'
I put in commentary the line PKG_CHECK_MODULES(CPPUNIT, cppunit,     have_cppunit=yes, have_cppunit=no) then  # make  # make installI took the driver voltronic_ser then from my workstation put it in the server, change the ups.conf and try it.The command “upscmd –u admin myups shutdown.return” now work (shutting down server then ups).Unfortunately, when I do “shutdown –h +0”, the ups is never shut down. After a little research, it appears that the line “upsmon –K >/dev/null 2>&1” in ups-monitor always return 1 so the line “exec /etc/init.d/nut-server poweroff” is never execute.I’m ussing upssched in upsmon.conf, do I need to create the flag with my script before calling the shutdown –h +0? How (it’s supposed to be set automaticaly)? or maybe I’m missing something.
Did I do the right thing by getting only the driver from my computer and put it on the server? Or should I do a package of the whole nut (binary, conf etc...)

Best regards,

You could try voltronic driver

Sorry for my poor english but it isn’t my native language.
I’m testing  an infosec E4 with nut-2.6.4-2.3 on Proxmox ve 3.0 (based on debian wheezy). The drivers that match this ups, is blazer_usb.
Btw, I have try nut-2.6.5 with unstable repository from wheezy, but it still doesn’t fully work.
I can shutdown my computer when battery is low, but unfortunately I can’t shutdown ups.
Like said on the man blazer :
         “Some UPS commands aren’t supported by all models. In most cases, the driver will send a message to the system log when the user tries to execute an unsupported command”

I’m wondering if there’s a way I can post some data to help make this ups more compatible with NUT.
There’s a software advised by the constructor that work on linux (http://www.power-software-download.com/viewpower.html), unfortunately it’s heavy (tomcat and java) and I don’t find it as flexible as NUT.

Best regards,
