The nut+upsd+upsmon solution is mutually exclusive with nut-hal, but they use the same device-specific code, and it sounds like your device is compatible.

What yum shows me is: (this is on my NUT master server though just FYI)

The usbhid-ups drivers are included with nut.x86_64

So I guess my only question is:

Will nut's UPS driver happily coexist with the GNOME's UPS "stuff"?
Or do I need to disable GNOME from sticking its fingers into NUT's control
of the UPS?
