[Nut-upsuser] UPS/NUT with openSUSE 13.1

Well, I tried the same script method with openSUSE 13.2, and it still did not execute.

So I tried the system method, and it worked 1 time out of 3 attempts.  I captured the last failure:

2015-09-04T11:43:38.825317-04:00 linux-5048 upsdrvctl[1887]: Can't claim USB device [2a37:5110]: No such file or directory

2015-09-04T11:43:38.826934-04:00 linux-5048 upsdrvctl[1887]: Driver failed to start (exit status=1)
2015-09-04T11:43:38.827185-04:00 linux-5048 upsdrvctl[1887]: Network UPS Tools - UPS driver controller

Is it possible the USB bus is going away before that can execute?

You will need to support Linux systems with and without systemd for some time.  For example SUSE Linux Enterprise Desktop 11 which does not use systemd will be supported until 31 Mar 2019 and SUSE Linux Enterprise Server 11 will be supported until 31 Mar 2022.

Yes.  That will remove the soft link.
