[Nut-upsuser] NUT not recognising Mini-box OpenUPS 2

Hi Charles,

Ok, I missed the absence from the backports as well. Again, some
unfamiliarity here, so

1) I presume I cannot use a metapackage meant for jessie or stretch on
wheezy? Or if I can, is there a way to deploy it from console?
2) If not and I use the 2.7.4 tar found at
http://networkupstools.org/download.html, do i just run the classical
process? i.e.

sudo make install

./configure has a no under "install USB drivers" and when I add that handle
(--with-usb) in, it prompts for libusb.

Does that mean I actually have to do the process referenced in your link?
Or is it fine to go ahead with that as USB drivers as a no?

Thanks again for the assistance.
